Bike was running fine....

I change the temp sub-harness.

After putting everything back together...radiator etc. I placed the false tank on top, plugged it wires to computer and started the bike.. It started and i allowed it to run a few minutes.

I than tighten down the false tank, put the set back in place.

I pushed in the driveway. And it would not start.. Run switch was on " run "...gas was on.. Might i say i did here the fuel pump run,

All light came on...this is the best i can describe my issue.. I am a layman to bike repair.

Any help will be appriecated

Have the dog bone fuses been replaced?  These are the main circuit fuses by the battery.  Over time they become weak, so it doesn't take much of a bump to break them.  If they break, the bike won't start.  If you find they've broken, it's easy to install an inline spade fuse holder and 30 amp fuse in their place.  That's where I'd look first, as I had the same problem on my SEi.  Good luck and good riding.

Thanks for your reply mountain rider.. When i first bought the bike i was told about this fuse and the fact i would not find one on the road so i changed it over to a 30 amp fuse and carry spares..

Ron, that bike has 2, 30amp dogbone fuses, one on the starter solenoid and the other is an in-line fuse located behind and to the rear of the starter solenoid.... That one controls all the "Other" stuff that the SEi has like the CFI, Cruise, and such...

Thanks roscoe,

Wow ! Didn't know there were two ? Let me look for the other

And see if that maybe the problem. For my own FYI.. the one on the starter solenoid is the one located left side rear near the battery ??

But going on a search for the other. Will get back to you guys and thanks again ..

Also, if you'll look, you can see the other red wire coming from the Hot side of the solenoid. I believe that leads to the 2nd, 30amp inline Dogbone fuse....

Will the bike crank over and not start or is it like nothing when pushing the start button?  The reason I'm asking is sometimes the lockout switches get stuck and will cause the bike to not start.
