I have been a member here for a while but right after I joined my bike was stollen. I still owe 2500$ on the bike So it was recovered and I rode drove from Arizona to Arkansas to get it , and made it fit in the trunk of a Chevy cavelier.. they cut the ignition , decided to do some painting . So here I am trying to undo their messups . so I re solders and heat shrunk the ignition. The broke it so a screwdriver will turn it .

The battery was disconnected .

And I think I'm missing a little relay or something important that goes in a black rubber sleave in the front end .

So the bike has no power at all , when I got it back before I rewired the ignition I used a screw driver and a jumper cable to jump the soldenoid on the starter to crank the motor and the dash lit up now I don't even get that . I replaced the 30 amp main fuse because it was blown and still nothing .

Now what is this piece missing from the six prong plug with a rubeer protector

They do require comprehensive , it was November so I usually just parked it in my living room but I was drinking and was too tired to put it back in and that's what I got , I moved out of state and two weeks later it was found 100 miles from my house . I wish I had insurance my dad co signed the bike.. I had to pay 800 just to get it out of Faulkner county impound .. Now it's safe in my apartment , when I get home today I'm really going to tackle it and try to get it fixed .. It only has 2000 miles on it . I bought it brand new.

Well I got the bike running with. Toggle and quick disconnect 9 v battery. Saving up to just pay the stealership to replace the ignition, for now I will just ride it until I have the 500$ it looks like a hassle to replace .

And I had no insurance at all lol , when I grew up we never had to . Washington state doesn't require it. Or t least didn't when I lived there. So when I was in Arkansas I was used to not having it

Yes, it's not a state requirement, it's a lender requirement, from all lenders that use the bike as collateral. If you had the comprehensive insurance, it would have covered the theft. Sounds like you had no insurance at all.

Most states require liability insurance (not all), which covers damage you do to others.

Well, just .02 worth, but, if it were mine, I'd get the manual, and the new ignition switch, and whatever harness part needed (if needed), take the tank and plastics off and go to work. I've done some silly things and fried stuff when I was impatient to get something on the road and now I'm OCD about getting everything right...especially in the electrical/electronics where expensive stuff goes up in smoke quick.

Nothing really difficult on these bikes, just take pictures as you go along, put all the fasteners and parts in bins (I use old plastic butter tubs), and read the manual on the section you're going into.

Have had two stolen and it sucked, tracked one down myself and got it back, other one gone for good.
