FI Shadow 750 won't start

Battery seems fine/headlight is bright, but none of the FI lights (?) on the right side of the speedo come on and the starter doesn't work.


Edit: I'd shut it off with the kill switch last time and hadn't turned it back to On.

Whew-it's all good now

Gotta love those easy fixes. And don't worry, we've all been there, one way or another.

My first experience with my bike not starting a week or so ago. Had my son out for a ride and went to start it again. Nothing. Thought 'oh no!'. Turns out my son had bumped the switch (which I never use) while getting off the bike. Was glad when it started!!!
