new to motos, bmws, moa & everything here. hate to introduce myself with a problem but I'm desperate for some help getting my brick flying.
Bought my bike mid November, I live in NYC, tried to take advantage of some 'Free Parking' to save $ over winter for gear. Moto had been sitting on covered sidewalk near my work for about 3 weeks prior, in the company of about 30 other bikes. While i was away on vacation last week, just my luck the NYPD decided that was the day to sweep up all the bikes. I got back saturday excited to pick up my bike and found an empty space.
Went to the impound lot, found my bike, blew all the money i was saving for a nice helmet on bail, and drove the bike home (5 miles/20mins) Everything seemed 'OK' until i went to park. As i was backing in to the curb, i noticed the gear indicator was blank. jammed my foot on the gearshift a few times, nothing happened. then i noticed the 'battery' light was also on bright red. turned moto off.
Now the bike won't start and i can't get neutral green light even tho seems in neutral. gear indicator blank. pressing starter does nothing, even with clutch pulled in. lights, hi beams, turn signals, horn all working. based on brightness of headlight, seems like battery 'OK' (will try later tonight with battery tender plugged in if i can find enough extension cord ;-))
i get no green neutral telltale, and nothing at all in gear indicator. battery light not on now when key is on.
i did notice one wire seems disconnected pointing out the front near the steering lock on the left side, looks like it was previously connected somewhere?
hoping and praying this is something a total novice like me can fix as i've blown my budget on parking tickets and impound fees.
prior to this the bike has been flawless in the 600 miles i've ridden it since purchase. has been to dealer for new tires, fork seals, and new oil/trans/coolant/brake fluids. battery has been tended religiously by prior owner and is about a year old.
any help graciously appreciated.
and look forward to meet any other NYC K bike aficionados
