    2015 F 650 GS Electrical Problems


    I just bought this 2015 650 GS with only 110 miles on the odometer. Although low mileage is usually a good thing, in this case it had been sitting idle for about 5 years, which can cause its own set of problems. So I wasn't surprised to find it had a couple of electrical gremlins like the horn, headlight and heated grips not working. The headlight could be just a bulb problem, but neither the low nor high beams come on and I am a little skeptical that both filaments would be burned out just from sitting so long with no use. I would love to find that all of those problems are related to a common component, controller or corroded ground lead. I checked all of the fuses and they seem to be good. I also disconnected then reconnected every wire I could see that was routed through a connector in the hope that I would be able to scrape off any corrosion that might have been on any of its pins. I'm also curious as to whether there is an oil pressure sensor that could have failed, but I don't know if those items would require oil pressure and have no idea where to look for the sensor if it does. An owner's manual didn't come with the bike, although the consignment sales person who sold the bike to me is supposed to contact the owner to see if she has it, but I haven't heard from him yet.

    Other than those components, the bike seems to start and run okay. Any help that anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated.

    Look thoroughly and carefully for rodent damage to the wiring.
