i also have a problem with starting on my 93 cbr 600 f2, just replaced the ignition switch, and battery and the fuses are all good. but when i turn the key nothing happens, no lights turn on, nothing. anyone have any ideas to help? id greatly appreciate it. thanks
I usually do not comment on forum rules or lecture people on them,but I will point out that this is an exact duplicate of your three other posts,and at this time 100% of your posts are duplicates of each other. Whether this is called thread hijacking or power posting or probably a bit of both just makes it more unlikely that anyone will help you.
Now to your problem. You need to check your continuity across the fuse holders or to any wires connected to them. Make sure that your battery + and - poles are on the proper wires and if any green corrosion was present,the wire can be totally gone under the insulation.A cheap multimeter at Harbor Freight is only a few dollars and well worth the investment.You could have used a meter to test the ignition switch and avoided having to buy a new one,for example.. Hope this helps

Even a new battery can go South fast in an unheated garage.
Is your kill switch on or off?
Siodestand cut-out, or the bike is in gear?

So alrighty then and point noted. I googled your bike model and discovered that there is a forum specifically for your bike. Better yet,there seem to be troubleshooting threads and issues that are fairly common like regulator-rectifiers getting fried that could cause what you are describing. There are troubleshooting trees for electrical stuff and free downloads for manuals as well. You can check the honda page on this forum--right at the top at Hondawiki and see if there is a manual for your bike here on this forum. If you want to identify parts on your bike that you might not know the name of,as well as receiving a discount off the parts counter, hondamotorsportsoftroy is a website that has all the bike specific exploded drawings of almost everything that Honda has available.
My other advice still stands--you need a tester and a manual. You need to identify the problem by testing so you do not waste a great deal of money on parts... Sorry that I cannot post the website I found,but forum rules for this site prohibit me to do so. Good luck and tell us of any progress you make

so i saw the lil cylinder that has the main fuse in it, and connects to the positive part of the battery and it was a lil rusted on the connection. so i bought a wire brush and scrubbed it off and now the lights and everything turns on. the engine has some trouble turning over, but i will jump start it tomorrow. ill let you know how it goes

so i push started the bike, and the bike rides fine, no problems. but after i turned it off i still cant turn it back on, i really dont want to have to constantly have to push it to start it. any ideas? thanks
[COLOR="Magenta"][B][COLOR="Purple"]I am having a very similar issue as the original post. I own a 1996 Suzuki Katana 600. Recently, it would not start, only electrical power was present. It was deemed a faulty battery, so I invested in a new one.
Upon installation of the new battery, nothing happens. I don't even have electrical power. I am a newbie bike owner, but I do know how to follow steps.
Prior to calling the shop and having it hauled away, what steps do you suggest I take?

i have a triumph daytona 650. i replaced the battery and checked the fuses and all are fine. i was riding and the bike just shut off, i pulled over and tried to turn it on but when i turn on the key nothing happens. i then went to the store and replaced the battery. the bike then turned on and started and after driving .1 of a mile it did the same thing. i made sure the battery was fully charged and tried it again and this time it just did not turn on. when i turn the key nothing happens, nothing electronic works.
