DR650SE K8 Ignition

Recommended Posts

Has this happened to anyone?

 

I started my DR to warm up and realized that I had left my helmet in the helmet lock. After turning off the engine and unlocking my helmet I had nothing when I turned the key back to "on" in the ignition. No power or lights. Thankfully, there was enough of a slope in the parking lot to pop the clutch in 1st and get home. I had replaced the key switch with an OEM two months prior to this and haven't had any problems with it until this. Does this sound like the key switch went bad suddenly or does anyone know how to tell if the CDI box went bad? Fuses are still good and I don't have a wiring diagram to go by to troubleshoot. Any ideas?

a known dr650 problem is the kill switch getting dirty or having poor connection.

i almost never used it, but the 1 or 2 times i did in 5 years of riding it had to play with it to make connection

Since it bump started and you rode it home its NOT your CDI. Think it's probably the switch.
