Hi, Carl before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.

Hi, Ian before testing any electrical component in the Turn Signal Light Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, "AGM" batteries fall into this category more so than lead-acid types, also before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced your OEM lights with one or all LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer.
If no turn signals are working the cause could be a faulty turn signal module/flasher or the connector going to it, look for, corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion.
If your turn signal comes on but takes several seconds before it starts flashing you may have dirty contacts in the turn signal switch/button, the switch needs to be opened up and cleaned also the flasher may be starting to fail. It should be noted that cold weather will only exacerbate the situation especially when temperatures drop down below freezing and the location of the component, turn signal switches on the handlebar are at the mercy of the oncoming freezing 70 mph wind and makes it hard for the contacts to do their job covered in frozen grease/grime
If all four turn signals flash at the same time like hazard lights even though you only pressed one turn signal button then you have a LED light in the circuit and need a load equalizer that can be purchased from any motorcycle parts supplier.
If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function.
If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction.
If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first, for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire.
If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector.
If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

Hi, Scott to properly fix fuel contamination issues you must start at the source the "GAS TANK" you will need to buy a gas tank rust remover and metal prep solution system, go online and research the different products available, stay away from rust converters and liquid Kreem liners, I recommend POR15 because it stops rust permanently you will also need some nuts and bolts ball bearings etc. and a service manual.
1. Remove the tank and drain all fuel and let dry.
2. Remove petcock and filter or fuel pump and filter.
3. Seal all openings except the top fuel filler opening with tape, plugs, or rubber *******.
4. Fill the tank with a strong solution of Dawn soap and water, seal the opening and shake vigorously for 1 minute and let sit for 30 minutes, remove the gas cap and pour out contents, rinse with a garden hose or pressure washer and let dry thoroughly.
4. Pour in 1/2 cup of nuts, bolts, ball bearings, etc. and seal the opening, shake vigorously for 2 minutes.
5. Open the gas cap and shake out all nuts and bolts along with dirt and rust, use a flashlight to inspect results and repeat as necessary until all rust is removed.
6. Following the directions of your rust remover product begin the procedure of removing residual rust, remember bare metal when dry will start to rust/oxidize immediately so make your last step a final rinse of solvent or kerosene anything that has a petroleum base, your first tank of fuel will mix with the residual solvent and not damage your fuel system.
7. Properly clean or replace all fuel filters, petcock, and fuel lines.
8. Remove and disassemble carburetor/s and properly clean all parts use a carburetor dip if necessary for the really bad ones.
9. For you injected folks use carb cleaner for the injectors and fuel rails and test with battery jumpers for proper function. If you're not in a hurry I recommend the services of Injectorrx.com
