Question about Motorcycles
Took off fairings for deep clean. After putting it back on, bike starts fine, changes into gear fine. When in gear and I rev the throttle, the bike doesn't move - like it thinks it's in neutral. This is the same in all gears. I have re-ran all the wiring to see if I pinched something but haven't been able to locate any obvious issues. What do you think?
Sounds like you may have pulled the clutch cable somewhere and it is jammed and not letting the clutch engage. Most likely not a wireing issue.

The kickstand switch is either bad or bent out of position. See if you can activate the switch manually. Does the bike run now? If so, the switch is bent out of position. If it still won't run, jumper the wires together until you can replace the switch.

if you rebuilt your carburetors you have made a mistake when you reassembled them a carb must sprsy a fine mist of "dry" fuel into the engine intake your carbs are flooding you need to check your fuel floats , jets and, don't forget to check the power piston circuit and, balance (sync) your carbs on the bike when you're done
your chuch is fine if you did not touch it

SOURCE: engine management light
Engine management light was on permernantly after replacing battery, took advice and let bike idle until thermo fan started, turned bike off and let thermo fan stop, restarted bike and engine management light went off. this proceedure resets engine management system. GREAT ADVICE thanks.

Sounds like it may be drawing air around the intake somewhere. Let it idle and spray around carefully with wd-40 until it speeds up. This will reveal the leak.

Remove the positive cable from the battery and check the continuity from the loose cable end to the chassis or motor. There should be no continuity with the switch turned off. If you don't have a volt/ohm meter (multi-meter) to test for continuity, try touching the loose battery cable-end to the empty battery post. If there is a spark, a short somewhere is draining your battery. If there is no continuity the most likely thing is that your voltage regulator isn't working or you are not getting voltage generated, causing the battery to run down. The tests I mentioned are assuming that you don't have a clock or something else that are constantly on. If you do have a meter, you should be getting a reading of 14 volts, more or less, between the plus and minus terminals of the battery with the motor running.
