Brutale 990R reefuse to start

Hello everyone,

My 990R, was running perfectly.
Got it into the garage, and it stayed 2-3 weeks, than I tried to start it and it refuses to start.
I hear all the electronics as usual, but when I hit the starter, I hear a "Tick" and nothing happens.

I will post a video asap it will be easier to understand than my bad english.

Any ideas?

I tested the battery, it is ok, fuel is ok.

P.S: garage temperatur was low for the 2-3 weeks I was on travel around 41F

Don`t trust it not to be the battery. Throw a charge on it for a while and try it again.

B750 and B1078 RR both gone now.

It sounds very much like a low charged battery...

Cheers, Simon

The red switch is in the right position I have checked it in both positions any way.

I have tested the battery with a voltmeter.
The horn, headlight and all other lights works fine and do not look dimmed.
I have tested all the fuses, and all the connections I can get to.
I was told to test the relay.

sounds like the battery the one on my 1078rr failed a 100 miles from new, lights looked fine on mine as well.

And it's not in gear?

As Chris said, charge the battery, don't just check it with a volt meter. Also make sure the connections at the battery are tight.

I will try to charge the battery as suggested. Can I hook it up to a car battery and try to start the bike?

As for the gear, it is in neutral, side stand up...

Jumping with a car battery is OK....but don't have the car running. Quick battery test...hook up your voltmeter and try to start. If voltage drops to 9V or less under starter load then the battery is dead.

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