Yesterday i went riding/training for an hour or better. Longest i ever rode since i bought it last week. When i finished & went to start it to put it inside,it just turn over & wouldn't start. The headlights usually comes on when the key is turned on,but they don't. WHAT COULD THIS BE? I bought a new battery when i purchased the bike,then had it charged @ the local auto parts store.This is my first bike & i'm clueless.

Doesn't sound like your fuel pump is coming on "Whining noise when you put it to run". Check your fuses behind the left mid fairing to see if the headlight one is blown.. Fuel pump might be a lose connection at the battery or the run/stop switch is not making contact.

Do you have any type of immobilizer/kill switch?

Your bike won't start till you hear your fuel pump whine.
Has the bike been down or the front been worked on? BAS between the headlight would keep the fuel pump from turning on but if it's working fine then I would guess your fuel pump is bad or unplugged.. Wire is under the gas tank.

Sounds like you have a ground issue, if you don't have a multimeter pull the plug off one of the headlights (low beam is my favourite :dontknow:) and run a piece of wire from the black wire in the plug to a good solid point on the frame (that isn't covered in paint) or the negative terminal on the battery, then try start the bike.

If it starts you have an issue in the ground wire running from the front of the bike down to a yellow box that can be found on the left hand side just next to your seat. It may be wrapped up onto the harness but it does stand out like a sore thumb, and has been a common point to have issues.

would this stop the fuel pump from coming on? Im new at this so excuse the clueless comments. I wish it could be this simple

Yep, it certainly will.

The BAS is up in the front fairing, it's just a switch that sits on the ground side of the engine stop relay, so if it doesn't have a good ground going to it the engine stop relay won't come on so your fuel cut relay wont come on and the fuel pump wont prime.

What other symptoms is the bike showing?

Kill switch could also be the culprit...

You took of the BAS, that's why yours won't start... little box mounted behind the headlights...

Im convinced its a ground somewhere. jus by the way its acting,still don't know where could it be. It just turns over but won't start & i don't hear the whine noise i used to hear when the key is on. No headlights.

I didn't hear your fuel pump prime. The guys above me gave some good advice already.

I agree 100% with "Ground Issue". Same thing happen to me when I purchased my 2005 a while ago. Road it for the first day for about 1-2hrs. Then went to start it up then next day and the fuel pump was not priming, headlight was out, and i believe the running light was out as well... Ended up being a ba ground in the front headlight harness I believe... I will look for my thread if it is still around...

Nico I think you are 100% right. This is acually exactly what I ended up doing to fix mine. I ran a wire from low beam bulb plug (black wire) to the battery bracket for a good grround, and it started right up...

I would def recommeded trying this and it should start right up from the sounds of it...
