Long story, but I'm hoping telling it all will help you help me. I left the breather tubes off the airbox when I serviced the bike not too long ago. I found the tubes disconnected when I was cleaning the bike recently, so I removed the plastics and the fuel tank to reconnect those tubes to the airbox. Nothing crazy happened. All seemed to go fine. But when I went to start the bike, nothing on startup was right. The bike would not turn over at all. It didn't make the same noises. In fact it is pretty much silent. I get no neutral light, all the trip information is gone (it just displays a bunch of dashes), and my GiPro gear indicator goes through its sequence and apparently does not find what it is looking for because it displays an "F" when it completes. Lights work, horn works, indicators work, brake lights work, and the odometer shows up when you key on, but that's about it.
I must have done something, left some connection off, knocked something off, or whatever. I'm completely baffled. I checked the battery connections and they are tight. I did not check battery voltage but the lights and horn are strong and the bike has only been sitting a few days. It was getting late and I was a little frustrated so I did not do anything else. I have a video of what it does but the site does not appear to accept mp4 files any more. If you know how to post it please let me know and I will.
I really hope someone can tell me what might be wrong. Feeling a little desperate. Looking for
