2006 Yamaha FJR1300 - Dead - No Lights

Hello

Dan Fellows back again with 2006 Yamaha FJR1300.

Stopped in store and when I came out and turned the key I got nothing, no lights on panel, no fuel pump prime or starter.

Cycled key and kill switch several times and nothing.

Checked fuses and battery connections and all ok.
Had fella attempt to jump with small jump box but nothing. (Not Battery).
Luckily got bike trailered home from fella at car show in the lot.

What I've done at home:
Checked battery resting voltage and it shows 12.87 - Then pulled it.
When I removed negative terminal - Tach/Speedo gauges spun to (6K and 87MPH) and are stuck there (See Picture).
Checked Fuses again and they are all ok and show continuity.
Pulled Tupperware.
Believe it may be ignition switch? Do I need to disconnect IGN wiring from on top of engine and test there?

Thanks again for help and questions!!

Dan

Saw this thread and going here. So I started by spraying contact cleaner into the key switch and letting it run through the switch and out the bottom, about a half a can. There was lots of black stuff and fine shiny particles in the paper towel I stuffed underneath the switch. Then next shot some WD-40 into the key switch. The key swich seemed to loosen up and feel better and I could get the power to come on with the switch positioned just before the "on" position. The bike would crank, but not start. I took the switch apart, having to drill out the "non-removable screws", and found that one of the four spring loaded contactors in the switch was stuck, thus not making contact. I lubed the contactors a bit and carefully tweaked the sticking one so it moved better. All the wires and the soldered connections were good. I cleaned, lubed and reassembled the switched, reconnected it into the harness and it worked fine. I will put everything back together once I get new screws for the switch and modify the switch wires to enable an emergency 20amp toggle to be installed, under the right side top faring(where all the fuses are in this bike), per direction on previous threads from this forum. I appreciate all the replies and direction to the previous threads....cheers!!

Does anyone have the IGN BYPASS" or Toggle that NMrider talks about in one of his Thread? I have the Ignition out and would like to jump the wires in from the connectors (Red and White) to see if I can power the bike.

Thx Dan

Hey Folks


Post #2 is a copy from another Thread!

Also, I called Yamaha and this switch (2nd One) was swapped into the bike in 2012 under "the recall"!

Thx

Actually wanted to just know how they were bypassing the switch and showing power to the cluster found I could put jumper wire between Red and Brown wire in White plug. That showed cluster lighting up.

Will drill out screws on IGN Switch but have ordered a new OEM switch.

Final Update.

Drilled out the Ignition and found that the Brown wire had come unsoldered from the circuit. See picture.

Ordered a new OEM ignition switch and key off EBAY and it arrived yesterday. Installed in bike and tested (panel lit up). Obviously did not start it because fuel tank was off.

Reinstalled fuel tank and bike started right up.

Since the ignition had already been changed in 2012 under recall not sure if the "new" one I just installed will have the problem down the road.
