Question 2015 KLR650 no power. Help.

I was just moved overseas and received my bike today. When I reconnected the battery and tried to start it. Nothing! Not even the neutral light. I tested the battery and it has a full charge. I checked the two fuses next to the battery and they are ok. What else can it be? Need help. This bike is brand new and I'm a long way home from the US. Help.

Check the main fuse down by the starter solenoid.

Do you have lights? Turn signals? Horn?

Blown main fuse could produce symptom reported.

Right on I will check today and report. Glad you attached the diagram cause I have no idea where that's at.

Yes no lights no horn no electric power whatsoever.

Take this cover off:



The main fuse is under the red clip. There is a spare 20A fuse stored at the bottom of the starter relay, just visible in the picture.

Thanks for the pics, I found the spare just didnt know if there was anything else. Now I know. Finding anything on youtube that addresses this issue is almost impossible. Thanks I'll take a look after work.

Tom you were right on the money. However I know have a new problem. Power is good, she turns over but doesn't ignite. Where do I go to from here? The vid of what I'm referring to is at. tinypic.com/r/33p59v5/9

An engine needs air, gas, and spark at the right time to run. You can probably rule out "air" and "spark at the right time" for now.

Open the drain on the bottom of the carb to make sure there is gas in there. Check the petcock for proper operation. It's vacuum operated, so you'll need to apply vacuum to see if it flows well.

Surprised no one started with the "Did you make sure your kill switch was disengaged?" hahah. You guys are just so damned mature on here! Love it!

How long was it packaged up and ready for shipping plus it being shipped? Depending on how long the fuel has sat, it may need good fuel in there. Also, with bad fuel the plugs may need cleaned.
