In the other thread, I pulled the tank ok and got rid of the half-arsed wiring that had been done to driving lights and 3 speakers. Put the tank back on: hooked up the fuel line and tank vent on. Three plugs on the left side and that should do it, right? Turned on key, everything buzzes and hums like it should, ready to start. Contact!.....nothing. Ugh. fiddle around with the wire plugs to make sure they are together good. Still won't get the starter going. Everything else is ok. Checked the battery and it was good. There is one plug that comes out under the tank and is in the area of the battery. It is a four pin plug with white mark where it goes together. going in, it has small wires...blue, yellow/black (2)/ white. Only one large yellow wire comes out of the other end and it has a female bullet connector. Any ideas?

Hmm.... That does not look familiar.


Three different times I've stripped this bike down to just the frame, engine, and main harness.

And no telling how many times I've done partial tear downs. 30? Maybe...

But...it's been 4 or 5 years now since I last modded on it.

But I don't remember anything like that. Looked in the manual yet?

Mine is an '04 . The plug does go into the main wiring harness and is wrapped like it would be from the factory with that tape that is not really sticky, but stays on the harness.

Got it! I replaced the solenoid fuse. Somehow it got toasted in all the wiring and pulling/pushing stuff. Glad it did it's job. Helps to keep and idiot like me from really screwing something important. Thanks for the replies and keeping me straight.

That single wire pigtail thingy is the connection you ground in specific methods to engage the fuel injection/ECM diagnostic modes, i.e. show and clear fault codes.
thank you for replying. I was wondering about that the other day again, when I had the seat off.
