No head light or blinkers

So the other day I left the head light on of my 04 Brutale. Fortunatly I still have a bike and only a dead battery. To get it started I had someone jump me with their car (something I've done many times with my Suzuki). The battery has been charged and all the fuses are good but now the head light and the turn signals don't work. Any ideas on what's wrong?

Yep....your Service Power Unit (aka CDI...aka fuse box) is bad....very familiar story. Do a search, then buy a anew one.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Thanks for the suggestion. Is that the same as the CPU ECU computer?

No....The ECU is the engine management computer...the SPU is a box on the Brutale model that houses all the various relays and electronic switches....and holds the fuses...on the left rear side of the fuel tank.

Have been advised never to jump a bike with a car, the power surge could have been the cause. Should have used a bike charger. Mine was dead in the shop when I went to take it for a test ride because it had not been taken out in awhile. He tried to jump it with a bike battery but it was too dead. 24 hr charge later and it was as good as new. I asked that very question to the mechanic, he said with these new bikes and all the electronics, never use a car.

I heard this from a so called mechanic and it's crap, when you jump the bike from a car always connect the -ve from the donor vehicle to the frame or engine casing bolts or some other shiney metal part and not the Battery. this prevents a surge accross any delicate electronic parts. It has never failed me yet and I've done it on many bikes.

If your still unsure you can always bump start the bike
