    I thought that the battery was dead, so I hooked up the tender, went out for a ride on my thruxton, and when I came back 6 hours later, I went to turn the bike on.....again, absolutely nothing. I hooked a quick charge to the battery, to jump start the bike, and usually I get a light, a cycle through the tach, ...something. I got absolutely noting. I pulled the battery, charged it - its a little over a year old yausa battery. It says its fully charged. I reinstall it - and again , nothing. Its as if a main wire has been cut. I looked at all the fuses on the right side of the bike, and I looked at the large 40 amp fuses on the left... They are all fine. Have you come across this before and can you give me some direction . I would appreciate any help you could offer... Cheers! Douglas had to send this as two was too long

    Donsy - its been awhile since ive been on this forum. You helped me a few years ago on an f4 1000(2006)...and we able to find that my issues were the charcoal canister in the fuel pump had turned into mush and made my bike completely un-ridable . Now, I find myself in need of your advice again. same bike, with still less that 4000 miles on it - I had it in storage over the last winter - it was on a tender, and I would start it once every two weeks, let it heat up, and then turn it off. I moved it out of storage to my home garage last month, and have been starting it up every other week, and its been fine. However, I didn't have it attached to the tender the last two weeks, so when I went out this morning to start and go for a ride...the bike was dead....and I mean dead... not a click, not a dim light, no dashboard lights.

    I tried to post this link at "Tech tips..." section but I think only you as a moderator can upload. I don't recall seeing this before on our forum so maybe it will be useful for others to see. This is a list of all the service bulletins (from no.73 -...).

    I accidentally reversed the battery leads. I saw a post of yours that referred to the diode. Can you tell me where that is located?

    Donsy, I saw your post about a possible oil leak coming from the heat exchanger. I followed your directions of undoing the clip that is over the bolt and tightening the bolt. Sure enough it was a bit loose so I tightened it up. The issue I have is I cannot get the clip that goes over the bolt back on? It came off very easily but it seems to be high centering on the bolt when I am trying to get it back on. Is there some trick to getting the clip back on? Do you have to make sure the top and bottom both move back at the same time? I tried doing that but didn't work. I really don't want to have to pull the radiator and exhaust pipes just to get this clip back on.

    Thanks for your help,
    Chris (Fasduc)
