OK first off its been a loooooooong time since I've logged in. Is moe still kicking around here? Anyway my bike sat outside all winter burried in snow and when I went to fire it up today, nothing.
The battery sat all day on the charger and had enough juice to turn over rather fast but had no signs of starting. I tried jump starting it and still no luck. I've noticed that the FI light doesn't come on. There is a very faint sound of the pump priming but nothing like it use to be.
I also tried the full throttle jump start, still nothing. I could smell alot of gas coming from the muffler so I'm confused to what it could be.
Should the FI light come on when I turn on the ignition?
Hope this makes any sense at all. Its been a long day.

Your FI light should come on once you turn the key on but should disappear as soon as you hit the starter unless you got a faulty code then it will start blinking

Simple suggestion hold the throttle wide open it will take a few trials to get the engine going so make sure the battery is fully charged before hand once the bike starts hold the throttle steady (no revs ) for a couple of minutes until you feel the bike is picking up idle on its own then let it purr away like a behaving kitten keep this thread posted with results and God all mighty willing will get your lovely kitten to behave & purr nicely again

The FI never comes on. I hear a VERY slight humming noise in the tank. There is a strong smell of gas coming from the muffler.
I have a pig tail hooked to the battery for a trickle charge. Never had a problem in the past. Could the battery just not enough juice in it?

The FI light not coming on might be an indication of a weak battery , gas smell is normal Does your trickle charger have a light indication that turns from Red to green once the battery is fully charged reason i am asking cause if that light goes from Red to Green right away or within minutes of attempting to charge the battery then your battery has a dead cell and probably no good

Get the battery load tested any way any auto parts store such as pep boys Discount auto etc etc will test the battery for free from there you can either confirm or deny if the battery is the culprit or not my hunch tells me the battery is dead for sure

The light is staying red on the trickle charger. Its been charging for about 7 hours now. Even when I tried to jump the bike with those portable car starters the FI light never came on. I will see what happens in the morning. Never had a problem with the bike till this point. I'll keep you posted.

BTW its good talking to you again. Is Tuna still around? As you can see I still have the avatar he so affectionatly gave me.

If by the Am the light does not switch to green then the battery has a bad cell and is dead for sure its awesome talking to you as well Tuna has not been around in a while pm him u never know he might respond keep me posted with the battery even if it does go to green i would suggest for you to get it load tested any way

Well mate, first thing I would be doing is getting the bike inside and all the fairings off to expose as much of the wiring as possible... then just give it a bit of time for all of the water to evaporate out of the harness.

After that, extreme cold will kill a battery... I would do as Moe says and get it load tested...

How much snow did you get on it? Just a dusting or enough that you needed your mates backhoe to dig it out?

backhoe. It was under a cover though. I changed the 20A fuse under the seat it looked toasty. Still no priming. Is there any other fuse that controls the FI? The bike turns over great just no priming noise.

That much snow will have water getting in everywhere... I would honestly just take it inside and see how you go in a couple of days...

What year is your bike?

check all your fuses. if you found 1 toasted, likelyhood of others being bad, especially with the bike outside all winter could be the case.

you have a fuse box under the seat and on the left side of the bike under the ram air intake tube.

Have a look at your ground connector, it's yellow and taped to the harness just below the seat. Possibly full of corrosion...

I checked the fuses on the left side they are all good. Besides the 20 and 30 under the seat are there more fuses? Whatever the large 30a one does it pops when I hit the start button. The 20a isn't popping at all even after I changed it.
Wish I would have gotten the bike indoors before the first snow fell and never went away...

ya when I hit the the start button and touch the 30a fuse i can feel it poppin. I thought that was a good thing lol. Could bad gas have just clogged the fuel pump?
When I turn the key on the red light on the tach stays red. Does the bike have to be running in order to get a error code?

Engine doesn't have to run but your problem is likely to be with the starter solenoid...

And the red light is your oil light, it wont go off until you have the bike running and the oil pressure up.
