Won't Start after clutch replacement
After main seal and tranny seal replacements I have what I believe all the parts back on that will allow me a test of the clutch and tranny before putting all the drive shaft etc. back together. I just dont want to put it ALL back and find out I missed something and have to pull it all off again. Got the tranny back on, stand assembly back on and switches mounted, fuel rail, airbox and gas tank on, and battery connected as well as to the starter and alternator. Reverse knob is straight up (or fully counter clockwise). I turn the key where the instrument panel looks normal, kill switch centered, center stand down, side stand up, tranny in neutral (validated by display on inst. panel and the trans output shaft rotates freely), press the button and HID headlights dim and no starter sound.
The battery has been fine all season as I start the bike about every two weeks and let it run for 15 minutes if I cant ride it at the time. I do not suspect the battery. I DO suspect that I may not have the starter/alternator wired up correctly but thats pretty slim because the wires would have only connected one way due to length limitations of the wires. Just in case, the long black wire to the deepest connection on the starter, brown wire on the frame ground on the starter, the black wire bundle with the blue wire off of it is on the alternator.
I am going to see if I can test the side stand switch and reverse switch for continuity.
The bike ran great prior to the tear down and clutch replacement. I think my frustration level is clouding my ability to determine where to go from here. I'm open to any steps from this point.
