Howdie all

My bike has been standing for a while. Ive been slowly fixing the bits that needed doing. Its never had an issue starting. But the old battery stopped holding a charge. Ive recently changed the battery; When I put the new battery in the bike started no problem After 3 weeks now I've gone to try to start the bike and......nothing.


I've checked the 30a fuse by the battery and it's all good but there is nothing coming through when I turn the ignition. There's no power coming through. No lights; My biggest fear is that its something to do with thr H.I.S.S


Can an one throw any suggestions in as to where to look.  (I don't have a wiring diagram) are there any other fuses or doohickies, do odds or wotsits that could cause this?


Thanks in advance

Morning David,
There's an additional fuse box under the left rear side panel by the seat.
Does the battery still have life in It?
I had a fiddle with a 650 a week or so ago, it had been sat a while, if the hiss came on the lights etc would still work, it just wouldn't turn over - flicking the kill switch a couple of times usually woke the hiss up.
After that I'm not sure.
There's a pdf Haynes manual here

It's unlikely to be anything to do with hiss.

Check battery voltage. Is there anything that could be draining the battery?

Charge the battery & give it another go.
