Battery or ?

Hey guys. I have an 04. I stopped today to take a break then after that my bike wouldnt start. After a trailer home, I hook up the batter charger and it shows charged. The fuel inj doesnt make the normal sound when you turn the key on and when you hit the starter something in the rear just makes a buzzing sound.

Is there a common part or somthing that goes out beside the battery ? Im not real good with electrical trouble shooting. I may have to just take it in to a shop.

Check your harness connections and the main ground connection where the bolt to the frame.

Kick stand swith would be a good quick check but here is a link to a service manual to get better aquainted with the bike.

I found a new battery I forgot I bought a while back. Changed it and it fired right up.

Just threw me off being the charger showed charged on the old battery, then you remove the cables and it wouldnt do anything. Even my battery tender was showing storage mode on the old battery.

The charger will show full charge because it's reading voltage. I believe your issue was low amperage so the battery took care of that...happy to hear it's ok now....RIDE ON!
