DEZPERADO THANKS for the update. It's always good to know if we help.

Chrisg4215 I will check it in the morning. Thank y’all so much. I love what y’all are doing with the site and all the effort y’all put into helping people. Some of us can’t afford the outrageous prices some of the dealerships charge and be able to have a place where people help each other solve their issues is priceless!

QuadManiac You won't kill anything if you've just jumped 12V to the red wire leading from solenoid to key switch... but you'll be without a fuse, so if something else were to short out down the line, you won't have fuse protection.

Unplug the fuse from the fuse holder... if you put the red meter lead into each slot that the fuse plugs into, do you see 12V in either? If not, the solenoid is definitely bad.

Chrisg4215 Question now is will that work without burning something up or do I need a new one. Im not one to cobble stuff but I’d love to ride while a new is shipped. Lol

Chrisg4215 I guess I was sent a bad solenoid! I had no power to the red wire so when I ran a got to it the bike fired rite up off the button! Everything is perfect now I’m back rolling! Thanks fellas so much! The running 5 seconds and dying was really throwing me off.

Chrisg4215 So with the plug in unplugged from the solenoid I should have 12v on the connector for the red wire on the solenoid rite?

Chrisg4215 I’ve spend two days on message boards and researching. The starting and running for a few seconds seems to be unicorn. Lol It has definitely thrown me off.

Chrisg4215 Thanks for your help fellas. I’ll check it out in the morning and get back to you. By the way I picked up another 05 cheap for parts. I switched the cdi, regulator/rectifier, and the solenoid again with no change. Thanks again for the advice.

QuadManiac Agreed with Dez - check red wire from solenoid to key switch - if no 12V there, the fuse is blown, not installed correctly, or solenoid is bad (assuming you have 12V at the battery terminal lug on solenoid.)

There is only 1 operating fuse in the 660 (Dez has a 700) - there are two on the solenoid, but one is just a spare.

DEZPERADO Did you check all your fuses, one on the solenoid (and one spare) and some back at the rear under the seat. Test the wires at the key switch per your diagram. I think you need 12 volts on one wire with the key off, then 12 volts on both wires with the key on. if that's good test your on/off switch.
