2004 Rocket 3
I recently purchased an accident damaged 2004 Rocket 3.
The battery had been disconnected. I charged it up and I was expecting some indication of life upon turning the key. Sadly everything was dead. My first thought was that perhaps something needed resetting, because the battery had been disconnected?
It's worth mentioning that just about every electrical gadget was damaged. Speedo, Tach, front indicators, 1 headlight, clutch perch, and on the LH side there was an electrical component that mounts just below the fwd. throttle body that had clearly been broken off. (The piece shown in the picture, any idea what its called?)
Would I be correct in assuming that a break in any instrument or sensor would render the entire system powerless?
I am slowly locating parts but it would be nice to know just why there is no power getting anywhere.
Thanks,
Kiwi Doug.

I would think you are correct and you would need to make sure all the electrics are sorted out before you can expect anything.

Probably blew some fuses when the electrical was damaged. But like Dave said, get the electrical sorted before trying.

Do check all of your fuses, to include the master fuse.
