Need Electrical Help!
Hi friends, I also have a 2005 ZX-10R, has a new problem - which is not brand specific, so hoping someone on our Forum here could help. Here's what's happening:
Turn key, all lights up normal, fuel pump primes, horn beeps strong, push start button - and all goes black/dead. Nothing. Hear a short "bzzz" sound somewhere under the tank when this happens.
I would think if the battery were weak or bad (it is old, but measures 12.9 volts), I would just hear the Solenoid buzzing or clicking. But in this case all goes absolutely black/dead. Turn key again, totally dead. Nothing. As if main fuse were blown, but no fuses blown including main fuse.
Hook up another battery, and same thing happens again. Acts normal, push start, goes totally black, and stays black. Tried again today, and the dash came back to life, lights up normal, pump primes, but all goes dead when I push the start button.
This is a low miles 2005 ZX-10R, always on battery tender. Never had a problem before.
Why would a bike act normal but then go totally dead when start button pushed? Turn key off/on and still completely dead. But the next day turn key on and all lights up again as normal! Push start button and all goes dead again!
Hopefully someone here knows electrics!
