New Battery and bike wont start
 
I just got back for my R&R from Iraq and I just installed a new battery. The bike will turn but wont start. The fuel light is blinking and there is a full tank of gas.

did you plug the fuel pump in?

I never unplugged it. I just tried to start it again and it will turn but wont start. When I sit there I smell a small hint something burnt, like wire or plastic.

Did you put fuel stabilizer in it? If not bad gas.

bump this. just replaced my battery too and it wont start.:sad: recently the thing wouldnt charge on its own. the guages would barely illuminate. i had put jumpers on it, it would run until i removed the cables. now the guages illuminate fine, it cranks but doesnt turn over.
i check all the fuses (under the seat) and everything is fine. HELP!!!
