Even if the big red switch (emergency stop) on the right side is in the right position, that doesn't mean anything. These switches like to stick to the inside, then they have to be opened and cleaned. Then the ignition current is released. But even that can't really be the case, because even if the emergency is pressed, the petrol pump should work, at least for the year of construction 2019.
I would check and measure the main fuse and the base, there are often cold solder joints or broken connections.
One possibility is the immobilizer, maybe your key or decoder is defective. Take the spare key.
Then the control unit could also be defective and not send a signal.
I would systematically look for the fault starting from the battery. Remote diagnosis is always difficult.
A straight line is only the shortest connection between two curves ...

Bike was running but poorly.  Battery was changed and now nothing.  What does common sense say?   :164:

Humm. I bet there are some wire broken or a putrid connector. I would remove lateral fairings and try to follow the wiring with a torch. If everything is okay visually then the next step would be a voltage measuring on connectors - bit tricky but it works at 95%.

P.D. A silly question but is it OK the polarity of the new battery? This things happens sometimes.


+1,that happen to me once ,very easy done if you have had the battery out, you can turn it the wronge way and not notice.

Perhaps the most ironic joke in the world is naming it “Common Sense”.

Took the battery to a car parts store and had it checked, 12 volts dropped to 7 under load - apparently bad cells. Replaced.

Bike fired right up.
I did learn a bit about maintenance and do have nice clean and tight connections now though I lost two excellent days to ride, not an even trade off but at least it runs.

Swallowed my pride and posted this up. Thanks once again to all who chimed in.

The best thing is that your bike is OK and running :002:

Now this thread is another good resource on the site.

It's always the simple things that get you.  I once had a vehicle in the shop that I performed some engine work on.  Started it up, ran great for about 5 min then it shut down.  Retraced all my work, double checked everything, even got out the scanner to start looking then noticed the gas gauge was showing empty.   :138:
