    I have a 2007 K9. I was riding it earlier this week and it just stopped. No electrical power at all. I was about 100 miles from home and went to the local AutoZone and asked them to test battery and the rocket scientist working couldn't stick his finger in his butt, so I just bought a new battery and went back to my bike and replaced it and still nothing. I then had to trailer it home. After getting it home I have checked the wiring from the ignition switch to the EHC and everything checks ok. The breaker checked ok too. I can't find and wires burnt or rubbed. I have tried putting 12 volts to the EHC and nothing happens still dead. Do you think I need to have Slick check it or is it pretty well FRIED.....
    Thanks

    Does your headlight come on? If you don't have an led bulb Maybe your plug melted and shorted and possibly fried your ehc

    I'm by no means a wiz about the electrical parts of these machines, BUT, it don't work right now, so why not take the opportunity to have it checked? If Slick says its' bad, you can go ahead and replace it. Otherwise, ya can spend a bunch of time and grief messin with things and still not have it runnin ! :2cents::2cents::patriot:

    It could be your key switch. The key switch grounds the EHC to turn it on. Who is Slick?

    Yea, had mine tested and they said it was "100% rock solid", well it wasn't and I continued to beat my head against the wall trying to figure it out, :oldbang:I had a similar problem, but mine would do it intermittently, :oldangry: finally I bit the bullet and installed a ESC from DOC and no more problemo's! :whoop::old2::chopper:So as long as the person testing it knows what they are doing and has the proper equipment to test it with then I guess it's worth it, but for me it was just another big waste of time, you also should check to see if you are getting power from your left circuit board to the green wire on your starter, my circuit board went bad also at the same time, good luck!

    All I can say is probably.. I can't stress it enough to just get rid of all that BDM bs wiring and computers and hardwired it.. about the same cost ..

    Sent EHC to Doc and had it tested, wouldn't power up. Put Doc's harness in, works great. Hell of a nice guy, very helpful and the new harness looks good too. Easy to install, no issues at all.
