919 dead

Getting ready for work the other day. Pressed start switch and engine
turned over for 2 seconds and everything went black before engine could completely run. All black, no lights, no horn, no FI turning on. Looked at main fuse, looked at other fuses, all looked ok. No corrosion on battery terminals. Took battery to test charge (12.4). Battery tender charged it in less than hour. I am leaning towars alternator or ignition switch. Anybody have any ideas??

the alternator wouldn't make every thing shut off if the battery still has a charge. I would check out the grounds and connectors first. If you have a multimeter start at the battery and work your way back checking for power.

and I'm just gonna say it, the kill switch is in the right position right? I know I pulled a stupid once and spent a lot of time tracking down only to find it in off.

im absolutely sure about that, that was the very first thing i checked. plus even if it was that, there would be indicator lights on the gauge cluster. but theres nothing coming on.

I'd take the cables off the battery and clean up the terminal ends very good, then reinstall and see what happens, you never know it could just be a bad connection.

there was no gunk on terminals and the main fuse was not blown, nor any of the other fuses.

Check that the kill switch hasn't broken inside the housing. Seems to be a weak point for these bikes. Take the cover off and check the ckt connections, I bet you'll find a lead broken off. Several others have had that issue here. Good luck! D

Are we having fun yet?
