Question about Buell Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Buell M2 cyclone that wont start after a blizzard. I had it covered in a tarp the entire blizzard and occasionally brushed the snow off it. Now its 6 days later and I went to start the bike for the first time but it wont even turn over. I turn the ignition on and the headlights/tail lights light up but no lights on the instrument panel (that indicates Neutral, Oil warning, and Turn signals) are working. The odometer on the speedometer is working still. But when I try to start the bike it doesn't do anything.

The battery may not have enough charge left in it due to the cold weather. Have you tried charging the battery?

    That was exactly the problem. A friend said that sometimes the computer wont work if the battery doesnt have enough charge. I originally plugged in a float charger which (after 10 min) indicated that the battery was above 80% charged. However it still wouldnt start, so I let it charge more, and once it was fully charged the bike started no problem.

SOURCE: bike wont start..possible electrical

I am assuming you checked to make sure the battery is charged? When my ignitions switch went bad it showed signs of failure first I had to jiggle the key to get it to work. That being said it could be the switch, it is a very simple change and if you get an after market switch not that expensive. The Harley switch is $40.00 I got an after market for around $15.00.

SOURCE: 92 FXR bike will not start or even turn over

that clicking sound is the starter solenoid. check all large cables for corrosion and tightness. as for the signal lights, neutral and horn, i think a wire is grounding , thus causing the problem with the bike not starting also. check at ignition switch and at handle controls for a loose wire that may be touching the handlebar. basically inspect all the wiring on the bike

SOURCE: lights, turn signals, horn don't work

Look for a bad ground connection inside the headlight shell (or possibly elsewhere). The other thing that all of the items you mention that are working intermittently have in common is the ignition switch. With the switch 'on', check for battery voltage at the fuses for the headlight, turn signals, horn, etc. No voltage at the fuses likely means a bad ignition switch.

Buell m2 cyclone wont start after blizzard. battery is charged, tail lights and head lights turn on, fuses are good. but the instrument panel and gauges wont light up and it wont start.


Check your ignition switch. It may have water in it or it could have rusted contacts in it. The gauges will light as long as you have the key switch on. Since they are not lighting - I would say bad switch.

Dont start with the sidekick out or clutch in


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.
