    Four mounths ago I disconnected the battery. Yesterday, after that it was fully charged, I reconnected the battery to the wires, but, when I turned on the key.....nothing happened. I mean no lights, no leds, just nothing.:newsmile08:

    I cleaned the connections but the problem is going on!:newsmile08:

    Four mounths ago my bike starts and runs very well.

    Any suggestion?

    Thanks

    Have the battery checked and if that's OK, check your main fuse. Maybe Chopper or Glider , with they superior knowledge will help you here.

    There's not much to make the lights work. Battery, battery ground cable, main fuse and ignition switch.

    Check battery voltage and check for power to all fuses, and all grounds. With a tedt light hooked up to the positive post of the battery, any metal u touch should light the test light verifying u have a ground

    Clean the ground on the frame/motor end and check the main fuse. Or put both +/- wires on your tongue to see if the battery is good.:newsmile098::small3d038::lolrolling

    Your title says custom bike, you sure there isn't more than the heavy cable going from the battery to the starter. I have seen customs the had the heavy cable going to the starter and a second wire running the rest of the electrics. Hope you find your problem.
