Re: 1999 won't start
how did you charge the battery? out of the bike, or in? If you took it out, you might check to see if all the wires are connected, sometimes when you put the battery in, one of the wires gets bent down, and you forget to fish it out and put it on the terminal....don't ask how I came up with this....Or have you tried to push start the bike? Not something you can do yourself, but I have had very good luck push starting mine when my battery was at the end of it's life, and was giving me problems. of course a new battery fixed it. Oh, you have an alarm on your '99? I have a 2000, and don't have one...that I know of..
Does your brake light wig wag when you turn the key on? reverse switch is not engaged? Kick stand is not down? kill switch is not on? did you accidently reverse the leads on the "boost" when you were trying to start it? do you have 12v to 14v on the battery? how long had the battery been dead when you tried to start the bike?
