HELP GUYS, MY 919 WON'T START. Driving exam this afternoon

My 919 won't start, the first attemp both gauge's needle when up not even half and i heard the fuel pump just a litlle bit no as loud as usual. Second attemp nothing happens no clock, no light, no horn nothing. When i push the start button i can i a relay clicking( starter relay i guess)but nothing else. I check the battrey: 11.4 volt
What could be my problem any suggestion?

Thanks

My bet would be the battery. The real test is what the voltage does when you try to start it. You can also remove it and take to an auto parts store or bike shop and have it load tested, usually for free.

So, how did you do?

Glad you got it fixed, I don't think they give you extra points for bump starting the bike during the exam........
