Hi Guys,

(1090 RR 2011, 4K miles)

A bit of a cold night last night and this morning I wake to my brutale lights flashing and it wont start!

Lights and horn work, but no crank at all from the engine. Just a "click", hissing, and then, silence...

I gave it a wash yesterday and let it run after, was just fine.

Any idea why the lights would be flashing? Surely has something to do with why it doesn't work now...!?


Thanks,

Hmmm, water wash, cold night, no start...sub-freezing temps?
Where in thsi world are you?

Well, I would start with drying out all connectors then applying dielectric grease before reconnecting.
In the future...no water...
Check your battery....it is probably a POS Koyo...mine was. Replace it with a Yuasa.
Others have had recent trouble with the starting solenoid.

Hmmm, additional thought...do you have an alarm installed?

Battery is probably dead. Check the brand, the Kotyos are notorious for failing early.

Any chance you left it turned past the lock into the parking position? Was told that can kill the battery when sitting. I got a stop fault when my Koyo failed, but can't recall flashing lights. Maybe the top yellow one, maybe a red. I'd say a Yuasa will cure your ills.

Ahhh I remeber when I made that mistake with my Ducati, not this time though. Another hour on the tender and I'll give it a start to see...
