Have I missed some trick the Yamaha gurus slipped in the procedure of reinstalling the battery after recharging it?
I finally got to the battery under the gas tank, managed to gently remove it from the wire-laden box it rests in, returned it to full-charge status with my Battery Tender, and put it back in the bike.
The terminals are connected correctly.
The computer turns on and the NEUTRAL light is on.
The Engine Kill switch is not activated.
The starter turns the motor and the sound is rhythmic.
The fuel tank is full, and the fuel line is open.
Have I forgotten something?
Please help this girl back on her bike!
