I forgot to put the charger my LT and didn't ride it for 2 weeks and discovered that the battery had gone completely dead. I have a Tire Pressure Monitoring system that's wired hot to the battery. I tried charging the battery, but it was gone. It was 4 years old.
Now here's the part I need help with. I purchased a new battery, hooked it up and when I hit the starter button all the lights, gauges and other electrical stuff on the bike went out, and have not come back on, even when I turn the key off and then back on. I checked the battery and it show 12.5v or so and all the fuzes appear good.
With the key in the on position nothing lights up.
I never heard the starter crank either before I replace the battery or after so I don't think it's the starter relay gone bad.
