Electric/starting problem. 02 954RR
Having weird problem with bike starting again like I did way back in the fall. It worked perfectly fine before Christmas break..it's been sitting in my friends garage for the past 1 month with a battery tender connected. I come back, bolt the seat back on, and turn the key and just the LCD comes on and tail lights.
However, as opposed to usual, the LCD isn't backlit, the headlights don't come on, and there's no little audible wine when u turn the key to on. Trying to start it only triggers the starter motor with no results.
I feel it's definitely an electric connection somewhere, the battery has full charge. I don't understand how it could've developed this problem when untouched. Maybe condensation? Dust? Last time this type of thing solved itself but this is weird.
Some people have told me it could be a ground out in some of the wiring, and also that I should replace my battery (it is pretty old (might be the stock one) and has corrosion on it), although the battery showed 12.X volts when measured, and the battery tender it was on said that it was fully charged. Also, other components of the bike work without fault (LCD screen (but not backlit now), taillights, and starter motor).
