06 FZ6 Ignition/ Electrical Issue

Hey everyone! New to the forum but happy to be here. My battery recently crapped out on me after sitting for too long. I tried jumping it from my car( ignition off, light contact on FZ6 battery) but it didn’t want to start, I assumed it was something to do with the jump. Stopped trying that and ordered a new battery. I just installed it yesterday, and now after turning the key on I get a clicking sound from 5VK-81950-30-00 RELAY ASSY under the back left “FZ6” plastic. Fuel pump turns on, but sounds like it isn’t reaching typical pressure, just dialing down. After about 6 seconds of this instrument cluster shows an Err_1. I ordered a new relay, but I’m concerned it could be something else. Anyone have any advice on what to try next or experience with a problem like this? It’s been an amazing bike and I really hope I didn’t mess anything up. Thanks!

Jump starting a motorcycle from a car is something most manufacturers do not recommend because car batteries are much larger and have a much higher amperage (more power) and can damage a motorcycle battery and possibly the electronics (as your battery was gone already, no worries with the battery.) With that said, it is possible in tight situations. So, the question would be is if your car was running when the cables were connected. If so, the alternator in the car has to generate higher amps to run all the electronics and charge the battery, thus, the higher amps (power) when the car is running it presents the opportunity while connected to the motorcycle to cause damage elsewhere.
