Hello guys I got a problem would like some advice.
I store my rubi in storage building when not riding. I rode it for about
an hour and put it up. 3 weeks later I go out to start it, turn on the key,
nothing. so I turn it on and off a few times and get neutral light sometimes but it is dim sometimes. I put a charger on battery just to check voltage. Battery was dead! I went and bought new battery. put it in and nothing. no lights no display. I checked all fuses, even pulled main fuse and checked the holder with voltmeter and getting juice! Still nothing!
So thats about all I know to check. I would appreciate some advice on this.
Also jumped solenoid starter turns over great still no display
It's under warranty but a pain to take it in If It's something simple!
Thanks BM

Check your ground cable. Either remove and clean it at the frame mount or for a fast check just get a cheap cable and mount it to any frame bolt and hook it to the neg side of battery, that will tell you quickly. Most likely its just a bad ground. Good luck.

Just wanted to update in case anybody else ran into this!
Took it in to the dealer, they called back and said the ignition switch
went out and ordered a new one not covered under warranty because it had been tampered with $170.00 they talked to my fiance,
When I went to get it the guy told me how much, I told him I didnt
understand the tampering deal he went and got the switch and brought it out and showed me! I told him that was where my winch button hooked up
he said ooooh and said they would cover it under warranty
he said they install them that way all the time!
It runs fine now
Thankd BM
