Problems with electrical system I think???

I just got done storing my 929 for the winter and tried just starting it up for the first time in about a month, but when I turned the key the buzz that you usually hear just before you start it, which I beleive is the fuel sending unit never comes on, does anyone know what this could mean, don't know if I need to just disengage the battery and reengage it or I need a new sending unit or what, just need some advice if anyone has any please respond.

Just want to ride!!!!!

If you didn't have the battery on a battery tender, it's probably shot. You can try charging it. But if it doesn't hold a charge, you'll have to replace it.

Re: Problems with electrical system I think???

+1. Always check the battery first. No voltage, no pump. If the battery is OK or oyu get a new one and it still doesn't work. You need to put a voltage meter on the wires going to the fuel pump in the tank and cycle the key to see if its getting power before you condem the pump because all it need was a $5 part or a wire fixed.

(I'm bitter when i hear people wanting to shot gun parts at a bike or car without knowing how to diagnose the actual problem)

Good luck. Post up results

Re: Problems with electrical system I think???

Are the lights coming on or the LCD showing info? Or is nothing happening when you turn the key? If so I'd try to give it a jump start or push start. Is it the original battery?

If it's not the battery check the fuse(s) next...

How about turning the cut-off switch to on?
