Re: bumped bike this morning it started then cut out
On some Kawasaki models, there is a circuit board underneath the fuse holder where some of the solder would require re-soldering. There would also be small relays for ignition interlock (neutral, sidestand, clutch and others) that would require contact cleaning. These interlocks provide the conditional switching of the IGN B+12 to the CDI. If you have confirmed that all the wires to the battery, the starting solenoid are connected, then this might be worth the effort of looking into.
Alternately, if when the battery was removed, the starting solenoidconnector was also removed, it is likely that the big terminals of the starting solenoid were wired wrong. Please confirm that the terminal marked "S" goes to the starting motor and the terminal marked "B" goes to the battery's B + terminal.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

when you drilled out the pilot jet you destroyed it. Even if you have jewelers bits they are to big. One drill bit size is 6 to 10 jet sizes. Replace the pilot jets, you are running WAYYYYY to rich at idle.
The key fob is not getting detected by the bike.-------
The turn signals start flashing because it thinks the the key fob is not close to the bike.-------The batteries are replaced, but still key fob is not getting detected.------Try this :--- Turn the handlebars to the left and lock them with the key. Once locked, unlock and try to restart, this resets the alarm on my 2008 FLHX.----Try raising the kickstand and let the bike go. And see if it runs.If it runs then kick stand switch needs to be inspected and replaced.---------------This will help.Thanks.Helpmech
As I'm sure you suspect, changing the oil and sparkplugs should have nothing to do with the symptoms you've outlined. The symptoms "seem" to indicate a problem in the charging system. Either the battery is in need of replacement or the regulator is fried. One way to test which is at fault is to jump start the bike (be VERY careful doing this as a car battery will fry your system if you connect it wrong). Once it is started, remove the jumper cables. If you need to rev the engine slightly to keep it running, this is normal as a dead battery is a big draw on the electrical charging system. If you can, have a friend hold the bike RPM's around 1500 and disconnect one of the battery leads on the bike's battery. If the bike continues to run (my suspicion is it will), you have a bad battery. If the bike will not run, then the charging system is the culprit. It could be something as simple as a regulator or as complicated as the generator (inside the engine).
Actually when the key is turned on all the "dash" lights come on neutral, oil, temp and what ever else as soon as the bike starts the lights will go out. If the lights come on while the engine is running then you have a problem or it's in neutral "green".
For the bike not starting a few things, first off the battery even though you say it's new may have been sitting on the shelf for a while and they do loose power so it may need charging. The newer bikes the headlight light comes on when the key is turned on which robs the starting system of power to turn the starter, the batteries need to be good on these bikes or it's just not going to work. If the headlight comes on and looks yellow or amber then there isn't enough power in the battery. If it's a nice bright white light then there is power and the starter may need to be serviced.
If the bike has been sitting over the winter I'd guess the battery has just lost power and requires charging.
It may still be your battery. My 2002 vt750 dc started all the time for the last 8 years. Then one morning it would not turn over the motor fast enough to start. Tried charging, but no difference. Finally I put in a new battery and it started right up. Your battery of 9 years did a great job, now get a new one.
how about replacing the fuse by the battery it is a master fuse and thats what it sounds like
since all lights and bike runs after a bump it sounds like a master fuse problem
if not check your batterie ground it might be cut or loose
Hi i have a problem with my bike it is an 2001 aprilia rs 125cc. When i press the ignition button i hear a clicking noise coming from what i think is the starter relay? ( located at the front of my bike, behind the radiator ) and the starter motor wont spin or even try to crank the engine. i have also tried 2 bump / jump start the bike but still no start :( i think the battery is fine though as the lights work when ignition is on. can any1 help me with this problem? any suggestions and help appreciated thanks :)
