    Trophy Just quit, literally

    Yesterday I took my 2013Trophy to work as usual. After work I started the bike, went approximately 8 miles, and stopped at a local convenience store to use the ATM (5 minutes tops). Returned to bike, put key in, and nothing happened. After a few minutes, nothing still happened. I've checked the battery, fuses, starter switch, side stand "kill switch," all of which are working properly. I have no DTC codes showing (stored) just P0000. I do, however, have the check engine light that stays on. I've done a few minor things like disconnecting/ reconnecting battery and the like. Any suggestions on where to go from here, or other things to check?  :148:

    Forgot to mention:  When ignition is turned on, dash does come to life, and preforms the "checks." However, when starter switch is depressed, I get nothing. Not even a "click."

    Check battery voltage? It will still do the start up sequence with a low battery. When my battery failed, the suspension adjustment was going nuts but it did start.
    Other than that is sounds like a safety switch somewhere. Check your fluid levels, oil, coolant etc..... check that kickstand safety switch.

    It could be the contact of the clutch lever.

    As mentioned it could also be the contact of the side stand.

    If it is not one of the two contacts mentioned, you should check the starter relay, just on the right side of the battery, there is the starter relay, check that one of the two thin cables it has has not come out.

    They are the only two cables of the whole motorcycle that use faston connectors and these could be that they had come out.

    Another thing that could be, is the relay that is under the seat (left side). I like this from memory. You will see that there is a group of 4 relays and another group of 2 relays, you should check the group of 2 relays, just the relay that is next to the ABS fuses. That's another starter relay, excited by the starter button.

    Check for 12 volt voltage and check the relay contacts.

    I agree check your relays. You can swap the relays.  I carry an extra relay under the seat after I had one go bad.

    Suggestions below are all valid, especially the Push-On Spade terminals
    of the Starter Solenoid, just forward of the Main Battery.

    Check the Engine Kill Switch hasn't been accidentally knocked and switched on !  :138:

    There is a Safety Cut out system that prevents the Engine from starting under certain conditions.

    Clutch lever must be pulled in ( So could be a faulty switch )
    Side Stand must be UP, IF any Gear is selected ( So could be a faulty Side Stand switch )
    Gearbox must be in Neutral IF the Side Stand is down ( So could be a faulty Gear Position Sensor ).

    The "Engine Management Light" ( Malfunction Indicator Light, or "MIL" )
    will stay on until the engine starts, so don't worry about that.

    There is a useful Topic here :

    HOW TO : Check the most common faults & issues. - Page 2 ( E-O ).

    Scroll down to "ENGINE WON'T START" to check other possibilities,
    including a faulty Handlebar Starter Button, faulty DataTool alarm ( if fitted ) etc.

    Cheers  :821:

    It also could be the wire harness has come lose from ignition switch.   It happened to me in Arizona while on a trip from PA.  Stopped for gas shut it off and it would not start again.  If you habitually turn the front wheel all the way left when dismounting it would be my guess that is the problem.   Some early models had a wiring harness that was too short.

    That will be the problem that is now subject of a Worldwide Safety Recall,
    but I donít think it will be that as NO-CFIT explained that the Instrument
    Panel all lit up ok, which is not typical of the Ignition Switch wiring failure.
