It won't start! (2012 1090R)

Hey there,

here is exactly what has happened: bike was fine until Thursday. But since it was dirt because of all the rain it has taken during the week, I have decided to wash it on Friday. Have not touched the bike up until now, Monday, and now it simply will not start.

When I turn the key I got the display saying that everything is fine, but when I hold the clutch and press the ignition the only thing I hear is a very very gentle noise, like a single CLICK, quieter than the noise you get when snapping your fingers, followed by what seems to be a little more fuel being injected. And then... nothing.

Summing up:when I try to start, I hear one single CLICK, a little bit o fuel being inject and then nothing. Do you know that classic NHEC NHEC NHEC any vehicle does when you try to start it? It simply does not do that anymore.

Any advice?

I agree, start with the battery.

How exactly should I proceed in order to check the battery? Total noob here when dealing with stuff that runs on two (or more) wheels.

All I can say is that the LCD panel lights up fine when I turn the key. And it remains lit. Should I place a voltmeter on the battery in order to check it? If so, where should I "plug" it? Should the ignition be on when I do that?

And the most important thing: if I plug the voltmeter on the wrong wire, is there a chance I might break something or, oh god, get electrocuted?

Hey, I liked that last advice hehe.

Anyway, I have just removed the seat, and since it has been 3 days since I washed it, everything is as dry as it can be.

Now I am just waiting for my brother to wake up, since he is the one with the meter. I have just found some pics of showing where I should put what in order to do a simple check. I will come back to post the results.
