I took my bike (Daytona 600) into a Triumph dealer to have the blinker worked on. Turns out it needed a new flasher relay and some wiring in the front right blinker. When I left the dealership with my bike I noticed the check engine light was on. I have seen the light come on before whenever a relay was pulled or battery was diconnected and it has went away after two rides so I just thought that that was the case. I got home and parked it in the garage for the weekend. However, a couple of days later I went to start up my bike and turned the key, nothing. No lights or battery power at all. I checked the battery terminals to make sure that they were tight and I got nothing. I told the dealer and of course they are like "We wouldnt have taken a bike out to you with a check engine light on." im waiting for them to call me back. Any of you guys have any idea what may have happened?

have you tried trickle charging the battery? it may just need a recharge.

I would have turned around and taken it back to the dealer as soon as I saw the MIL tripped, as it is now your word against theirs. Sounds like a charging issue or the wiring loom is grounding out somewhere which is draining the battery. Have you checked the battery voltage?

thanks for the reply - i have checked all the fuses yeah (5 next to battery, white one next to batt and the 4 at the front) and they are all ok. my alarm isnt getting any charge off the battery either, im charging up another battery i know works and ill try that one in case its a faulty battery, i had just put a new one in it reads 12.8v tho so im not holdin out too much hope on different batt
