    Default Possible fuse?

    Anyone have this issue? Went to pull the bike in the garage 2013 RT Sm5.... went through the normal routine for start up… Lights came on, radio came on, hit the mode button, hit the starter, and the pipe went dead… I'm guessing maybe a fuse… But it's late and it's dark and I can't check fuses until tomorrow but it's really weird.

    If ALL of the power disappeared, then battery or main battery connection is a more likely cause.

    EDIT: And just because the battery is new doesn't necessarily mean that it can't go bad.

    Don't forget to check the relays. I had similar issue on my 2013 RT-S turned out to be loose relay. To prevent relay coming loose I placed piece of stiff foam on the relay thick enough so it would apply pressure when covered.

    Ride safe!

    SO......back to the original suggestion that you have a bad battery OR a bad connection to the battery.
    You need a voltmeter to tell where the problem is.

    Probably the most common culprit when this happens (right after a bad battery) is the OTHER end of the negative cable that goes to the frame being loose or corroded.

    well, in this case it just took couple of turns with a screw driver on the neg cable connection.

    Good.
    The only remaining question is: Who installed your new battery ?

    Often you can't get the bolts tight enough with a screw driver.
    And adding a "star washer" is good to keep them tight.
