the kill switch is a basic on/off switch. If you connect the wires that would bypass the switch. It could also be a bad battery man.

Does anything at all happen when you try and start it? Any noise?

No just the head lights come on but I put the battery on a slow charge and the device tells me the battery is ok but the bike won't even try to start and the fuel pump don't make any noise unless I take it out and go straight to the battery

First hello and welcome onboard! Also, it'd be easier to make out what you're explaining with punctuations instead of reading one long sentence. It's easy to mistake "let's eat, grandma!" from "let's eat grandma!"

What happens when you hit the starter? Starter clicking? Lights going dim/out when trying to turn over?

Check your starter switch with a multimeter, then jump the starter solenoid and see what happens.

It may be the starter switch and kill switch.I was thinking that because it should at least try to start with out the fuel pump. What do you think?

That's the analogy you come up with??? You my friend must have some suspect internet habits.

So mColor just to be clear. The key is turned, the lights are on, when you press the horn that works but when you push the started button nothing happens? When you say nothing happens, do the lights dim when you press the button? Will the horn work while you press the button?

PVster had a good one, do you have a neutral light/are you sure its not in gear? Just for kicks try and start it holding the clutch in.

Also where are you in the world bud?

Dead battery, loose battery cable (ground) or starter/kill switch is broke would be the first things to check. If you've got a volt-meter handy, you could see where the battery is in charge.

That is if you've covered the basics. Bike is in Neutral and not in gear with clutch engage (lever out) while trying to start. Kickstand is up if starting in gear with the clutch lever pulled in. Kill switch is on run position...

AND THE WINNER IS PVSTER WITH "BIKE IN FIRST GEAR"!!!!!!!

@mcolor at least you were man enough to admit it, we've all made mistakes like that. I know I have. when I first got my 919 I didn't know it wouldn't go into gear with the kickstand down and stalled a few times before I realized. Glad you're bike is OK.

Few years ago I went on a trip to Lake Chelan and got to my hotel. I parked her outside to check in and came back to a bike that wouldn't start. This was after 8hrs of riding so I was a little out of the think clearly mode. Couldn't figure it out. Clutch in, kill switch on, battery good, gas in the tank. Even had an off duty biker cop try helping out only to give up and say sometimes the bikes don't like the elevation. So I pushed her in front of my room and got settled in. Came back out later to try again with no luck only to find out I was starting it in gear, clutch pulled in, buy WITH THE KICKSTAND DOWN!?

Dope!!
