I have a 06 636 and it has less then 5,000 miles on it. All the sudden my bike wont start, all the lights work and you can hear the fuel pump going but no spark and it won't turn over. I throught maybe it was the battery but the battery is brand new and like I said all the lights and gages work. So I charged the battery and it started, but when I shut it off it would start sometimes but not all the time.

Now my bike has been sitting for a few monthes and I went to start it the other day, same thing, all lights but it won't start. I jump started the bike and rode for awhile then noticed my HID headlights were not working? All the other lights work but my after market halo head lights don't work now. So I shut the bike off and went to start it up again, same problem, fuel pump makes noise but bike won't start?? I'm gussing the stator? Any ideas ladies and gentleman?

I'm just taking a wild guess, but could you possiably have a bad connection some where with you halos? Maybe causing it to ground out? :dunno

I would check these suggestions first. You might also want to check your alternator/stator. Could be that the battery is retaining enough for the lights but not enough to actually turn the motor over. Without actually looking at it, it is hard for me to really make suggestions but those would me my first things to check.

I don't think it is the battery because I tried to jump the battery with a car and it still wouldn't start. I'm goin to check the stator I hope it's not my halo lights what a pain in the ass, thanks for the suggestions tho guys.

if so do you have are you pulling things off the bike to charge the battery? if you are and then it starts, I would say a loose connection, something is going to ground. Just had the same problem on another forum and found that the bike had an alarm and was grounding out on the bike keeping it from starting. if something is going to ground your lights will go dim after you leave the key on for 5 or 10 min. I beleive you have a loose connection somewhere. good luck

so the only time it will start is when you hook up to charge it?
No even when the battery is charged it won't start now. Im goin to get a multi meater and figure out how to test the rectafier, im thinking check the fuses and maybe i have a short from my halos because when i jumped started it everything worked but my headlights. Ill check a few things and let u guys know what i find

I had a cyclone alarm on it and was thinking maybe the alarm is drawing the battery so i removed the alarm and it still won't start
