Bike won't start

It's a nice day toady so I go to the garage and unplug my pani from the trickle charger (which was a solid green). My bike won't start. When I hit the start button you hear a click and the fuel going to the engine. After a few times of hitting the start button both engine lights come on and the oil light keeps flashing. I just rode the bike 4 days ago with no issues. What's up with this bike? Has anyone else had something similar to this happen?

check the voltage on your battery as a first step, should read 12.6 or more not running.

You can toggle thru the menu and check the voltage or better to just use a multimeter .

Check the dashboard and see what voltage the battery is saying.

Low voltage would cause the starter to click. I know you said it was charging, but could still be a fault with battery or charger.

Does the fuel pump prime?

FWIW, I just had my battery replaced under warranty for the very same reason. A day before a potential buyer came to look at my Tri, I tried to start it up as it had been awhile. Got that same click. Put it on the tender, and the light was green in 5 minutes. Still clicked.

Apparently the battery went bad, and was only charging to 65%. They gave me a new one, no charge.

Battery reads 12.2v. The fuel pump does prime too.

has it been cold? tap the starter with the butt of a wrench, that's how i can get cars to start

similar situation, battery checks out, lights are bright, starter just go click, click, click. starter clutch might be stuck

could always push start in 2nd and head to the dealer

New bike shouldn't need that. I'd call Dan, and have 'em tow it in. So sorry.

Have you guys tried to push start a Pani? Wouldn't the compression make it kind of a pain? Regardless, please record it and post it if you try it.

We used to push start dirt bikes, but that was forever ago when they were a lot lighter and I was a lot younger. I suppose you might be able to do it with a couple strong buddies or a big hill, but I wouldn't do the hill option unless you have a way back up if you fubar the timing and it doesn't start.
