Re: Possible electrical problems
Let me guess, the last time you tried to start it it barely cranked over? If so the starter relay could have fused together and then melted some wires. I had one that I fixed that had melted so many wires together the thing would still run with the key off.
If that was not the case then I'll have to research a bit more.
The above only applies to the older bikes (pre-2003) from the looks of your avatar you have an 05 +. The only relay is the load shed (or relief) and that would not cause this. Fuse F5 is the fuse and it gets power from the ignition switch. Pull the fuse and see if it goes out.
