You may want to perform a fix of the ignition problem yourself and what you need to do is to check the ignition system. There are three major components of the ignition system, and any one of them could fail and lead to serious issues. 

The main components of the ignition system are; Black box, trigger coil, a source coil. You need to check all these components and pay attention to any issue. Most black boxes, for instance, will derive their power from the battery, you may want to check the wires for possible burnout or breaks. If nothing seems to be the issue with the black boxes, you should check other components. If the issue has to do with wiring, please contact QuickPro Locksmith and our ignition technician will get the problem fixed. 

Check the Fuses for Ignition Problems

Fuses normally blow under certain circumstances to protect the motorcycle from excessive damages. You need to confirm the status of the fuses before doing anything else when fixing ignition problems. You may need the manual to find the location of the fuses. If any of the fuses is broken, you should contact us at QuickPro Locksmith for the proper, genuine replacement. 

 Check the Ignition Switch

If your engine is still not starting after replacing the fuse, you need to check the ignition switch. Turn on the key to see if the neutral light will come on. If the neutral light fails to turn on then there is a problem with the ignition switch. You will need a switch replacement to fix this issue, and fortunately, QuickPro Locksmith will help you fix it.
