Hey guys had to let my bike set in storage for a year. When I pulled it out I have the following issues:

- dead battery (charged it and it started)
- fuel line leak
- missfire/hesitation at RPM above 5k
- rear seat wont open

Tuned the bike up with new plugs and changed the oil and filter and cleaned the carbs up and replaced the fuel lines. Now the bike wont start. Its getting power but just clicks from under the rear seat. Im assuming a bad fuse. Is the fuse box in the seat compartment? Also is there a bypass to get the seat to open, I turn the key and have applied pressure with screw drivers but no luck getting it to open?

Any suggestions would help thanks!

Have you tried boosting the battery off a car battery?
What voltage do you have before and after pressing the starter button?
If you can hear the relay clicking then it is not a fuse problem.

No other way to get the rear seat open other than with the key, I'm pretty sure. The clicking you hear is the starter solenoid trying to work but probably isn't getting enough juice from the battery.

The fuse box is not under the seat. It is tucked in the front right side panel underneath in the handlebar area. But as BR said, clicking isn't a fuse issue.

i agree with not enough juice in the battery put it on a optimizer for a while, my bike battery did exactly the same.... fully charged and it turned over no problem

Thanks guys for the quick replies. Once I figure it out I will follow up! Still at a loss why the back seat wont open?
