Lost my electrics. I was out on a run yesterday and looked down at the speedo and it was off. I pulled over and all my electrics have gone. Lights indicators etc. when I turn the key to on I can hear the primer etc but nothing else!! Any ideas? I've had a look at the battery both pos and neg are tight but the positive looks like this

Well, I can't imagine that kill your electrics, but that does need cleaning and then a good coating of dielectric grease. (I've seen folks go cheap and use store-brand Vaseline instead).


Back to the problem, have you done any mods to the bike?

Pogo is probably right, check the main fuse.

I also spotted blueish green corroded lead on the positive terminal of your battery. that typically happens if there is an acid leak around the terminal and typically in 1 or 2 year old batteries. It shouldn't happen in a brand new bike. if I were you I would get this battery replaced immediately.

Put new handle bars on but no other mods. I'll bring it to my dealer and let the warranty sort the problem

Looks like its an acid battery and its gone bad. Probably just a defect from the factory.

I would still check all fuses and connections. Also test the battery as well to see the levels of voltage its putting out, if any.

I always carry spare fuses on my bikes, especially the new ones they blow fuses from time to time. It happened to my BMW F800 and to my KTM 690. Unfortunately it does happen sometimes.

Very possible, batteries are like that, even when new they can still end up going bad soon after. Then you have the times your luck is good and have a battery that lasts well past the average.

Has anyone else had issues with this? I went and got spare 10amp fuses but it blows every time I've a 10 in so I'm having to put a 15 in. Is this going to cause issues ??

Its blowing for a reason. Putting a larger fuse in risks damaging the cabling.

You need to find out why it's blowing 10 amp fuses, assuming that's what you took out. Putting 15 amp fuses in, (unless it's all you've got in an emergency), is asking for trouble, it's a 10 amp fuse for a reason.

I've just got mine back from the dealers after a week with them. It's come back with a new battery.
I was away for 3 weeks and came back to a bike that didn't want to start. Maybe batteries are something to keep an eye on

Was yours blowing fuses?? Or just not starting ?

Thanks
