Electrical problem


My brother left the key on on my 06 400ex for a week or so and it drained the battery because the lights were on and shit. I got a new battery and installed it and nothing happened. Any ideas on what's wrong? Thanks.

Need a little more info! did you put the acid in yourself? Was the battery charged? Have you tried jumping it? Do the lights work? Have you checked the fuse?...ect....

In addition to doing what he said.

Make sure all your wiring is connected correctly, bt more info would be very helpful.

I put the acid in myself and it was charged by the mechanic across the street from my dad. I haven't tried jumping it yet. The lights do not work. I checked part of the wiring and I don't see any bad spots. Where is the fuse located so I can look at it?

Got it fixed. It was the fuse.



While I already have a thread going, what's the best pipe for my quad.


I run white brothers exaust.

I've heard curtis spark and FMF are great exhausts

Do you have the full system or slip on?

I have slip ons.

I want full exhaust but lacking the $$$$.

Thats always the problem.

I'd like to spread my mojave also

and put ITP's on it.

And put a lowering kit on BOTH my bikes

Oh. What's the point of a lowering kit?

Makes it look mean.

Mostly for drag racing.

thats what i do.

used to run dirt...

but now the drag strip.

it looks better when there not as tall to me.


What do you mean by "it looks better when there not as tall as me"?

i meant to say to me.

But when you drag race on concrete its better to be lower.

Plus i wanna stretch that warrior.

Got it fixed. It was the fuse.

Cool...:bonk:...glad to hear it was a simple fix!!

I still kinda don't get what went wrong though. The battery had no charge and there was a blown fuse. Is it possible for the battery to die then while riding it blows the fuse trying to charge it. I did about 25 miles.

I'm not for certain but, could your brother have tried to restart the motor after riding and it would not start, then blow a fuse trying and give up in frustration and forget about the key being left in the "ON" position??

...p.s. I'm not trying to place blame on anyone....

That could have happened. It didn't have any charge when we went riding which is because he took it out of the truck and backed it into my garage and left the key on. IDK how the fuse was at that point.

Where is the fuse. I better carry a spare one.

There in the little white box in the center of the picture. There is already a spare in there.

      Jeremy Martin Leads the Charge for Wiseco Riders at Daytona Supercross
      Christian Craig Turns in Career Best in 450 Competition
      MENTOR, Ohio (March 13, 2018) – Jeremy Martin showed the way for Wiseco-sponsored riders in Saturday night’s Monster Energy Daytona Supercross presented by Honda. In a season marred by bad luck and misfortune, Martin put together a near flawless ride to earn his first Eastern Regional 250SX Class podium finish of the season.
      Martin qualified eighth for the division’s annual visit to the World Center of Racing, finished fourth in his heat race, and came home second in the 250SX main event, missing his first win of the year by less than a second.

      “It’s Daytona, a real man’s track.” said Martin who sits fourth in points. “It was the toughest race of the year as far as fitness. I had to slow down a little bit, halfway through the main. I was getting close to (race winner) Jordon (Smith) and I was starting to think about where I could make a move on him, then I made some mistakes and he got away from me. Couldn’t quite get close again, but it’s good. We’re on the podium and in contention for wins again. That’s something I haven’t been able to say in supercross in a while. We want to get wins and now we know it’s coming.”
      Martin’s podium was a bright spot, but the rest of the event was rough for the GEICO Honda/Factory Connection squad. RJ Hampshire crashed hard in his heat race and had to be transported to a local hospital. He injured his back and ribs, but shoulder pain left him with the most concern.
      “I felt good on the bike all day,” said Hampshire via his Instagram account. “Had some pretty good speed and my foot just slid off hitting my shifter in those rollers during that heat race. After seeing the pictures from the crash I’m very thankful I didn’t take a shot to my head. I have some fractures in my T3/T4 in my back and ribs. Also have some damage to my lungs which is why I’ll be spending a couple nights in the hospital. I’ll be getting some more checkups this week on the shoulder also.”
      Cameron McAdoo, the third member of the team, was unable to compete at Daytona after being sidelined with a hand injury two races ago in Atlanta.
      Across the paddock, in the premier 450SX Class, Christian Craig got the call to fill in for Team Honda HRC. With the team’s regular riders Ken Roczen and Cole Seely out with injuries, it was up to Craig to carry the load for the factory team, and the upstart rider didn’t disappoint.
      The San Diego native was solid in both qualifying sessions, won his heat race and snagged the holeshot in the division’s main event. After relinquishing the lead to eventual winner Justin Brayton, Craig continued to show he was up for the challenge. The 26-year-old rider raced for second and third for most of the 20-minute-plus-one-lap feature before losing one more spot in the late goings to bring his No. 32 Honda CRF450R home fourth in the final rundown.

      “I had a great week testing with the team,” commented Craig. “They came down to Florida right after Atlanta and I feel like we really improved. Just getting more time on the bike and getting more comfortable was huge. I started off race day feeling really good. My qualifying position didn’t really show it, but overall I was happy with my riding. It’s all about having fun out there, and man, that’s what I did tonight. I was up front in the heat race, fell to third, but then the two guys in front took each other out so I ended up winning. You can call it luck or whatever, but I just put myself in a good position to capitalize on people’s mistakes."
      “I had a good gate pick and some confidence going into the main. I grabbed the holeshot and led for almost the first lap, but [Justin] Brayton got by me pretty quick. I stayed second for quite a while. I just rode my hardest and did my best. Unfortunately, a couple guys got by me so I ended up fourth. The track was so tough. This is only my second time racing Daytona and last year didn’t go well, so I really wanted to get some revenge this year. It’s better than the week before, but man, I was so close to a podium. I just need to keep putting myself in good positions and work on getting better each weekend.”
