Just acquired the bike, and fitted an Optimate battery charger connection lead which effectively meant disconnecting the battery. The security system "chirruped" as I re-connected but now doesn't work - won't set when I want it to be on. Any ideas - or the solution, even better! Thank you very much

Re: Honda Firestorm HISS security system
You should have 2 keys
dissconnect your battery for 10 min.
do not have the key in the ign.
reconnect your battery
put your first key and turn on for 2 min and turn off
now install your second key and start.
if this doesnt work you will need to contact a honda dealer

Are you actually trying to start the bike with a battery charger switched on and connected to the battery. If so then you are at risk of blowing the whole electrics system battery and charger. Try removing the battery (undo negative lead first please) connect a dedicated motorcycle battery charger to it and allow the battery to reach full power. The charger should have an output of no more than 1 amp. Car chargers will wreck your battery DON'T USE THEM EVER. When the battery is fully charged refit it (positive lead first please) then try to start the bike. You cannot expect a battery charger to give enough cranking current to start a bike it is not designed to do it. NEVER USE A CHARGER WITH A JUMP START FUNCTION OR TRY TO JUMP START USING A CAR BATTERY LINKED TO YOUR BIKE. Both of these will fry your battery and possibly make it explode. Good luck
Your reverse is battery powered I would suggest the battery is shot.
You could try charging it and see it that helps but if the battery is nearing or over 2 years old I would get a new one. Remember to disconnect negative lead first to remove battery and connect positive lead first to refit. Also keep in mind do not use a car charger on a bike battery and never use a charger with more than 1 amp output. Bike batteries survive best on low current chargers. Final point never jump start your battery from another vehicle or other source. Good luck
tes the charger in another receptacle wall, if is ok , test the receptacle wall if is open, reset the circuit breaker .
if his system use batteries replace, or see if they are o.k use alkaline only.
Other is everything is o.k see if the board is fault or look for some wires loose, or disconnect.
Let me know
the starter drive is stuck out...take a big rubber mallet and hit the primary in the area of the starter......mine has done it 3 times ever since I dumped it the same way...sounds stupid but it works,,,i used my big snap-on dead blow hammer..one good shot should do.it,,,,then go have a shot..to celabrate
Some newer bikes aren't supposed to be jump started. Take the battery off the bike, replace the fuse, charge the battery on a proper charger overnight (as opposed to a battery conditioner like optimate). It should now start fine and not blow the fuse.
If that doesn't sort it, the dealer will need to reset something.
First suspect the battery. As I guide I have split the task into the following steps.
1. Get a voltmeter and test the battery. It should report 12.4 or 12.6 volts. Branded batteries frequently incorporate a battery status indicator in the form of a watch glass at the top. The color change indicates the battery condition.
2. Now connect the battery with the UPS leads securely and plug into AC mains (with electricty). Test the battery terminals for voltage. If voltage is between 13 to 14.5 volts then the charger is OK. If not then check if the fuse with the DC charger is blown. With the battery disconnected check voltage between leads. It should be zero (if it showed zero volts with battery connected). If not then the charger is faulty. Also if it shows 13 - 14.5 volts with battery connected and disconnected then it is OK.
