Hello, I've been reading this site for a couple of weeks and love it. Just purchased a 2004 400 with 5400 miles on it, I've put about 300 miles on it with no problems. Road to work and when it was time to go home put key in turned to on and nothing happens. My serial number nose not fall under the recall but still may be the problem. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

I should be more clear. When I turn the key on nothing comes on, the head lights the dash lights the fuel pump. it's like the battery is not hooked up. The battery is suppose to be new so I'll have to check it tomorrow, no time today

When you parked the bike did you open the seat or lock the handlebars.

If you opened the seat, was the underseat light switch in the auto on position. If so and you did not close the seat good then the seat light could have been on and drained the battery. To make sure that doesn't happen I leave the switch in the manual off position and don't depend on the auto cut off switch to turn it off when I close the seat.

If you locked the handle bars you may have turned the key on notch to far to the left. When you do that it turns the tail lights on as parking lights. Leaving them on would also run the battery down. To prevent that when I lock the handlebars I always check the tail lights to make sure I did not turn them on. Also the key can't be turned all the way into that far left position unless you hold inward pressure on it while you turn it. If you want to lock the bars push the key in and start it turning left then release the inward pressure while you finish turning it.

Thanks to all that replied. A BIG thanks to Buffalo! I did turn the key past the wheel lock position. I didn't know I did till it was time to go home. When I did put the key in I thought it was farther to the left than usual. I turn the bike around in my garage so I did not notice the rear lights on when I walked out

You would not be the first to have done that.

Another trick to check if you have the switch in the park light position, turn on the hazard flashers. With the key out the ignition has to be in the park light position for the hazard flashers to work. If you locked the handlebars and the flashers come on when you hit the hazard switch then your ignition switch is in the park light position.
