Let me start by saying this forum is awesome and has helped me a TON.
I was doing a bunch of mods all together (in the summer time?????) and ran into a issue I cant seem to figure out. I installed new handle bars and internally wired them. After the install I made sure the bike fired up... it did. The only issue with that was the kill switch didn't work. Figured I accidentally wired something incorrectly, so I moved on to my next thing not worrying about the kill switch since the bike did start up (maybe a mistake im not sure). Next I was to install a new brake light with integrated blinkers. Cheap ole me didn't buy the BlasterX and instead bought a cheap Chinese one on amazon with the company name of Areyourshop. Without thinking about it I wired the ground and power wire to the left and right blinker wires... obvious mistake because the factory blinkers were individual lights not circuited together. So here is where the fun begins. After wiring the break light thinking **** yeah almost ready to ride I flick the key to the on posititon to test the new blinkers. Right as I turn the key I flick the right blinker on, it blinks twice then blinker shuts off, and tachometer shuts off. OH ****. I go through the fuses to see which ones were blown. All were good accept the 10amp fuse second from the top (if you were to stand on the clutch side of the bike). Boom replaced fuse flick key to on position and tac now works Hooray right. Well now I do not get the whinning from the fuel pump when I turn the key. I push the start button and no noise or anything. Since I f'ed that up i figured I go back into the headlight and fix the wiring issue with the kill switch. Stupid me crossed the red w/ black stripe to the green w/ yellow stripe. I re-soldered these two wires and now all wires match up. I'm hoping all the old warrior owners here who know everthing about these bike will be able to help this young man out. Thanks.

The bad is the bike does not start. No whining sound from the fuel pump when i turn the key and nothing happens when i push the start button. Everything else works. Except i dont know if the kill switch works now because i cannot start the bike and yes the switch was in the on position not the kill position when i tried starting it.

Tested the wires in the red connector Yellow and Blue w/ white stripe have .001V hahaha. Also tested wires leading to fuel pump and have Voltage there. Do you think I have a major wire issue here?
Also is it bad that i get 11.6-11.8V instead of 12.8V?

I wish I could help more and this may sound totally obvious.

If your kick stand is down, and the transmission is in gear...the bike will not start.

I would start by looking into the warrior manual Warrior manual page uploads. and start at the kill switch...It makes sense that all was right with the world until that.
Another thing I would look well into is that there maybe a ground wire that came loose/undone during your entire wiring process and it could be the ground for the fuel pump.

Hopefully and its prolly something real simple that has gotten overlooked.

Keep us posted, would enjoy hearing all things worked out.

Sometimes a locating pin inside the switch body gets broken off so power is interrupted but candidly I don't recall if that occurs in this switch or the other (headlight etc) or in both. If you have voltage TO the switch but not AFTER the switch then disassemble and look for broken bits inside that are loose and unfastened.

I'll try to find the old ah post or an old rphazen post with a picture and some handy tips.

If kickstand is down and bike is in gear but clutch is pulled-in the bike should start. The Logic relay (start/injectors relay) looks at all three. Hope this helps.
Perhaps a typo on your part ;)
Taken from an earlier post:
  • Clutch lever pin switch?
    • The sole purpose of the clutch lever interlock switch is to allow the rider to start the bike in gear, if and only if the sidestand/kickstand is UP. That's it!

      It's very handy if/when you stall the bike in gear at a light, that just turned green, and a Mack truck is on your A$$ ... just pull in on the lever and hit the starter button :)

      This switch forms part of the Warrior pre-start interlocks that allow the starter motor to operate ONLY if the sidestand is UP!
