Going to need a bit more info.
Has the bike sat for a while?
Did it happen suddenly?
Does the engine crank over?
Do you know how to use a DMM?

Hi Stacy. First thing is to make sure the battery is good and connections are tight. Then because it sat have to look into the fuel system. Check the tank for any corrosion or rust. Check all the fuses. Especially the main fuse and the ignition fuse. Take them out and clean the spade connections with a brass wire brush. Make sure the spark plug connectors are secure on the spark plug wires. You should get power to the positive connections on the coils when the key is turned on. Get some spray electrical cleaner/lubricant and spray the clutch, side stand, kill, and starter switches. Don’t know if you have a manual so will add a link to show the procedures to check components. As vulcandoc states, give us more information and we will be happy to help.


I am going to move your post to the 500 Model Section so other members who have this model will contribute their opinions.
