Does it start when you're not sat on it? I had the same problem with a 93 fireblade it would start when I wasn't sat on it or the seat removed but with seat on it was no go it turned out to be a break in 1 of the wires to the cdi that when pressure was on it it would break the connection it was a pain in the arse to find anyway just a possibility

Sounds like you have disturbed battery connection / wiring in that area when you fitted new seat. Was everything OK before you fitted seat? was it in regular use? Is it charging OK? Is the battery u/s.?

Thanks for the replies. I put in a new YUSA battery that was fully charged with a solid green on the tender. When I hit the starter the lights which appear bright go dim so maybe the battery.

So have you tried it with two batteries, why have you put a new battery on? Do both batteries do same thing? Which battery was on when you took it for a short ride? Did it start ok after you put the seat on. how long was your ride? I'm confused, for us to narrow down what it might be we need a list of what you did and when. was it running OK before you put the seat on etc.
It is very difficult trying to help unless we have all the facts.
But there are lots of clever peeps on here, so it will get sorted.lol.

Your battery is discharged. It may recover on the charger it may not. If it's new it will have warranty

Battery tested fine, The 2 /40 amp fuses on the side are fine. Can the bike be started on the center stand with the kick stand up? Tired on putting it up and down.

Are you pulling in one brake lever ? Yes you can start on center stand but side stand must be in up position. Check kill switch is in run position.

I did drop a battery terminal bolt through a slot by the battery housing. So it is killing me is it somewhere where it could cause a problem. Did it fall out on a little test ride? Like chasing ghosts potentially. I asked before do you have any gauges / the odometer or anything come on with the key in run mode without starting? The instrument panel has light but nothing else.

Just confirmed on a 06 B650 oil light lit Drive indicator light lit and showing 0 speed.

Don’t lose hope we see this at least once a month here....the guys here will have you up and running soon.

oil light and abs light only on mine
Do you have an analog speedometer ?

While on center stand look for the side stand switch and see if it is acting normal .

Under the battery tray is three connectors. They sometimes get corroded. Take them apart and clean.

Autozone parts stores sell "Bulb Grease" that you can put in the connectors to keep moisture out.

Dave J, do you remove the 2 Allen head screws inside the glove box to access the fuses or remove the 2 Phillip head screws and remove the lower panel?
