Dead bike

2007 919 with 16k. New battery and ran before storage for winter.

I was putting the battery back into the bike today and I had the neg cable hooked up and my hand slipped and the positive terminal touched the metal part of the fuel line coming from the tank. Sparked, some light smoke at the battery. Reassembled, checked fuses for FI, starter and main 30 amp fuse all good.

Bike will turn on, lights come on, no fuel prime(yes the handlebar switch is in the start position), bike turns over just not getting fuel. Just hear a click in the area of the ECM. Did I fry it? I hope there is something I am missing, as I believe I have checked everything else.

Check battery voltage. Might have enough to turn over but not enough to fire. Hopefully others will chime in with more ideas.

Voltage is good. I checked the FI for errors, no flashing just stays lit.

Basically the FI isn't working and the fuel pump starting. I guess I will try to get the bike into a shop in the next week or two.

Clutch cable loose or kick stand sensor?

I may not have a lot to say but it doesn't mean I don't listen.

Kill switch? You in neutral? Clutch sensor wiring plugged in (or whatever it is that plugs to the clutch lever assembly)?

If the FI light stays lit, the computer's probably toast.

Looks like the fuel pump is fried. Tested by running 12v direct and nothing. The positive terminal struck the tube that goes into the pump.

So be careful when reinstalling your battery. If I would not have had both the positive and negative cable connected this would have never happened. Next time I will wait until the battery is in place before connecting the negative.

She lives!!! Apparently when I tried to test it direct from battery my wires didnt hit the right spots. I pulled the tank and tested again and the negative fuel pump cable fried. Patched it and she is back to purring like a kitten.
