The only thing better than getting help... giving it. Here's where you can get help or offer help and get that natural high you get from helping out a fellow rider.

Wow...I just realized I was almost sounding like one of those motivational posters you see in an office.

Restarting after battery!

Thanks for this thread, Kickstand!
I need some experienced self-starters to help me get back on the road with my 2006 FZ6.
Been riding it daily for commute into Atlanta from Stone Mountain, so my 7 month old bike has 7000 miles on it.
Last month when the temperature dropped below freezing a few nights, I had no trouble starting my bike each morning. But, then it rained one of those freezing days and I drove the car to work that one day. The next day my bike would not start.
Battery drained, right? My thought, too, so I took it out and feed it with the Battery Tender overnight. I put it back in, put all the cowlings back on, and thought that would be it.
1) The terminals are correctly connected.
2) The key is on and the computer resets.
3) Full tank of gas and the fuel line is open.
4) Neutral light is on and bike rolls.
5) The starter works and turns the motor,
but the bike won't start and keep running!

I get the same results with the kickstand up or down.

Is there some 'reset' step that I am unaware of to restart my bike after removing the battery?

Thank you ANYBODY for a clue!

check if you are getting spark, did you hear the fuel pump kick on? how many miles are on your bike?

Hopefully Sportrider can help you where I could not. On paper, it looks like you did everything correctly.

But you are obviously having a problem!
