I like to stick to the KISS theory at times like this. Keep It Simple Silly.

Out of all the things you have done, and I read this again mind you, you checked the spark plug but never put a NEW one in? Toss the old, try a new one. Might have wet plug because of no spark?

Shot in the dark, I know...but still

HA, I have not put in a new one (sheepishly goes to autoparts store for a new one tomorrow).

If its the plug... I will cry.

Okay... so I got to thinking about that... I don't think it's (only) the plug, because I ran the test light from the plug wire to the head yesterday. The test light should have lit off if there was at least spark getting to the boot.

But Morph, you're right... I need to replace the spark plug because I have replaced EVERYTHING else... and a plug is 2 bucks and is probably due.

More parts today... this time OEM stuff. Sure, I could have gone to the store and got hardware. But it was just easier this way and honestly not as expensive as I thought. Stuff like chain tensioner hardware and exhaust hardware... and a new pair of riding gloves (thats me thinking positively about being able to ride one day soon! Hahaha)


Annnnd.... a new spark plug. (It didn't work morph!) Hahahaha.

Also pics of the new brake parts and the grab bar.

Good news is, that is starting to look great. Bad news is, spark plug didn't work. That sucks to hear, I was really hoping that was going to work. I think I have an owners manual I can dig through tomorrow to help wrap my head around the issue.

Hooking a test light to the spark plug high voltage wire could blow the light. Make sure the light works, then test for power on low voltage terminals on the coil, while cranking.

Check for and clean the ground cable from the frame to motor. If none, add one, even temporary jumpers cables for testing.

Keep the battery fully charged to at least 13.6 volts. Try jumping the battery from the wife's car, it needs to crank fast enough to produce a spark.

Dez, I thought that too... I checked the test light multiple times, light was good to go. I did have the battery hooked up to another agm battery because I have heard that lithium batteries can cause electrical gremlins (you can barely see the jumpers in the pic above of the grab handle).

I ran a ground run from the battery to the case/frame at a motor mount. I will go ahead and another, it won't hurt anything and I have all the supplies to do it. Are there any of the electronics that require a dedicated ground?

Also, I have been cleaning the contacts for every electrical connection I come across.

The replacement relay is supposed to arrive today and the new stator tomorrow.

Hopefully stator solves that issue. Fingers crossed...

Hello Travis,

I also have a 05/06 350. The previous owner had significant starting issues with the ignition as well. He ended up replacing every component as you have. That green relay will not stop mine from firing up. It will fire with that relay plugged in or unplugged. Do you have the service manual? It has a pretty simple troubleshooting section for the plug not firing.

Attached is a pic of a 350 wiring schematic. I think all that green relay does is something to bring on the reverse light. I could be wrong, as I think last nights medication removed the faster moving brain cells though....

Man oh man... I am trying to keep my cool.

Buddy comes over to "help" me with the bike. He is a decent shade tree mechanic but his reckless way about "trying" things to troubleshoot always annoyed me. WELL...

I get the new relay in the mail this afternoon... he says, well are you sure the old one is bad? I look over and he is hooking up wires to it to see if he can get it to trigger. Nada. So I run in to help wife with kids real quick... then I hear the bike trying to start... he pulled the starter solenoid off my motorcycle and wired it up in the bike. It doesnt start... but now the neutral light doesn't come on even when in neutral. Also my starter switch is permanently stuck "in"...

So I am trying to troubleshoot why the neutral light wont come on (the bulb is good, I swapped it with reverse and it lit up) And I am going to try to take apart the starter switch and kick my buddy in the [email protected]$ when I get a quick second.

...argh...
