Won't start and screen died.

New to the forum and first post. Went through the Technical Q & A and didn't see anything like this...Had my 2013 on battery tender last week and went to go for a ride this am...the screen booted up and I hit the starter and the engine turned over 3 chugs and quite turning and the screen went black. Turned the key off and back on...relay rattle but nothing else. Checked the battery and it's topped up??? Anyone else heard of anything like this? I am 100 plus miles from the dealer and would like to see if I can get it running before hooking up the trailer.

Re: Won't start and screen died.

Is it the original battery? If so, that's the likely problem.

Re: Won't start and screen died.

Topped up, does not mean your battery is any good. Needs load test. Buy a new one and try again and do not buy it at the dealer. Get a Yuasa from Attbat.com

Re: Won't start and screen died.

The starter is a great load tester for battery condition. Connect a good quality volt meter . When you hit the starter if the voltage dips to 9.5 volts your battery is toast.

Re: Won't start and screen died.

Thanks for the replies. I got a voltage meter and checked the starter on voltage...3.8. Got a new battery from A-1 as the AtBatt.com doesn’t carry the Yuasa battery for the K1600GT. Fired right up😎
