Siren works, but no power to instrument after recharging battery. Nothing changed on the bike, was just sitting all winter.

There should be a small fuse box near the battery with probably three fuses inside. Have you checked those?

Went to put gsxr 600 k7 away and stalled it then had no power not even lights

Sounds like your battery has become disconnected or is damaged (dead) or isn't charging from the bike.
Try putting a charger on the battery overnight and see if you have lights in the morning.
If you do, then measure the voltage at the battery before and after starting the bike.
If the voltage is the same or less after starting, then there's something wrong in the charging circuit.
This could be a regulator, or rectifier etc.
If the voltage DID go up after starting, then it may be time to replace the battery.

2007 GSXR750- The bike was stored in the garage over the winter and I started it several months ago. Now I re-charged the battery and when I turn the key to start the bike, the ignition light will not...

Recheck the battery conections, undoing them clean them and then replace them, it may be that when you put the battery on charge if you didnot remove it from the bike you may have blown the main fuse, this is not the fuse located in the fuse box, it is the fuse located at the starter solenoide, follow the poss red wire from the battery to the solenoide, here you will find where the wires attach to the solenoide, a fuse located under a plastic cover, supplys ignition power, i trust you have done a thorough test on the battery. ?

1999 800vs replaced battery when key is turned on to start bike all lights on speedometer light up should be just green just clicks will not turnover

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.

Cheers be safe and have fun with your motorcycle

Put in new battery still no power. was riding and everything went dead. the bike is a 98 cbr 1100

Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, have you checked the 30A main fuse? It would be inside the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

When in gear bike cuts out when moving off? is this problem due to a faulty stand switch. my bike has been in the garage over the winter and jusr run up to top up the battery,had no problems in the past.

sounds like its the safty cut out switch on the stand to me as well, you should see it by looking under the bike by the stand,,,its just a push in switch,,,
as for leaving the bike over winter with out charging the battery up,,,well smack your legs! you will soon need a new battery for that!
il give you a tip here!!!! get yourself a cheap solar charger of say 2.5 watts hook that to the bikes battery and leave the charger in good light,(sun light is good) but good day light works as well, this will keep the battery fully charged up all winter and can double the life of the battery,,,cheap power?

I have a 2007 v star 1100 silverado and i'm not sure if the batter is dead or there's a problem with the starter. i get a whirring sound when i push the start button but sometimes it will start if i push...

I would hate to think a bike that new would already have the start going out. Nine out of ten times when your bike won't start, it is the battery. Test it with a meter to make sure you have a good charge, I mean like 12.7 volts. It could also be a side stand switch, or wiring. Charge your battery if it isn't above 12 volts. Also when you put your bike up for the winter, either remove your battery or charge it every thirty days. This is another problem when your bike sets all winter, your batterys life gets zapped if not properly taken care of, it might not be right away, but hope this helps.
