Yes the side fuse, at the starter 30amp

and under the seat, the fuses looked good, and I only did a test light on the fuses. Only on of the headlight fuses went off. the others didn't do anything with key on or off

I dont kno what else


I dont have a manual, so I dont know what everything is, or where everything is at.

I connect pos/neg with screwdriver at the starter and it does crank that way.

You can check the clutch switch and sidestand switch by tracing the wires back to their connections and bypassing the switch. In other words, unplug the switch and the two connectors that run back into the harness, you plug those together(for each switch). Just do one at a time to rule out the problem. Simple check and you can still ride while waiting for parts. The connectors for the clutch switch are under the tank and the sidestand connectors are under the airbox (or close by)

step one, GET THEE A SERVICE MANUAL. preferably a factory, or clymer. you can download a haynes from here but it's no where near as complete. it should still get you thru troubleshooting tho.

its possible. Start checking wires for voltage with the key on. you should have power at the starer switch and after with it pressed. There's a relay for the sidestand at the battery. If you turn the key on and put the bike on stands or have someone hold it upright, you can hear and feel the relay kicking off and on as you move the sidestand from the down pos. to the up pos.

Check the starter switch and clutch switch for power and that they are connected. You can test the starter switch at the starter solenoid and test it while you are there. They are common to go, but for a newer model as yours, you may just have a bad connection somewhere (ie: in a switch or connection)

all of the components inside both switch housings are simple to clean and put back into service. just take your time dissasembling, and make sure you keep track of ALL the springs, little ball bearings, etc. do it on a bench with good light, a pad (so stuff dont bounce and ricochet away) and some sort of block so stuff dont roll away. could be as simple as a wire come loose or a grubby contact.

10-4! Usually you can clean up the contacts in the switch and bring it back to life. No sense in "Jimmy-riggin" a switch up somewhere
