Question:

My motorcycle wont start after i switched the neg and pos terminals, I checked the fuses they were good, HELP?

I have dont have a fuel injected bike.Its a suzuki rf600does the wiring fry that easily ? ( if thats the case?)

Answer:

You dont say if the bike is turning the engine over or not. Do the following. If the bike turns over the engine when you try to start it, take out one of the spark plugs and see if you have a spark there.If you have a spark the ignition system is almost certainly OK and your problem lies elsewhere. If you dont have a spark then you have blown the igntion amps and that is going to be expensive. If the bike does not turn over youve either still got the bike battery wired in wrong or the battery is no good, did you take it off to try and charge it up?

Will any lights come on? OR Will the starter motor spin when you press the starter button? If either of those are no, could be a bad ignition switch. To check - test for power at the fuse terminals (don't just look at the fuse). Without any more details, the next possible problem would be a fry-ed ECM (carbureted models use them). An ECM is the equivalent of a CDI box.

check the fuses again with a volt meter some times they look good but aren't.Take the fuses out if you can .Check the wires with a ohm meter selection to see if they are grounded.usually these two functions are on the same tool.Next check the battery to see if you have 12 volts.
