2009 KLR Starter Not Working After Fuse Blow
Hoping the brilliant minds in this forum can help me!
Started the bike up. Headed out and two blocks from the house electricity died instantly. Lights, blinker, everything. Walked it back to the house. Battery has a great charge (I have the KLR Lower Dash that tells me the volt output from the battery. Fuses under the seat were good. AHA! The culprit was the 30A fuse by the starter (underneath the red rubber cover). Replaced it and the electricity is back!! Lights, blinker, everything is well.
EXCEPT the starter won't do anything. No click. No sound. No attempt to turn. Not in neutral or in 1st. I've got it on a center stand with the kick stand up.
The bike has been riding fine for months. About 3 months ago I had one of the 15A fuses under the seat go out. The starter sounds a bit strange at times but always starts right up. I'm a new rider/wrencher having bought this bike in October.
Thank you for any help!
