A couple of days ago, my friend gave me his XB-600 because it didnt work anymore. He said something shorted while charging and that he didnt want to service it or spend time on it. So looking at it, I first decided to charge the battery. It was still in good condition, and after it was fully charged I put it back in the the compartment. Nothing happened, no lights on, no battery meter turning, just nothing. I thought that this might be a wire problem, so I inspected the wires. They looked fine, a lil dusty, but still ok. Then I came across the fuse. Opening the plastic case, I saw that it was gone and needed to be replaced. So, after replacing it with the correct type, I put the key in. This time the lights,the battery indicator, and the horn worked. But it didnt not start.
So my question is, [i've never started nor seen one start before] is this the proper way to start? Simply put the key in and turn once? I tried that, and even kept pushing the red button the on right hand side, which I later figured out was the horn. Nothing happens. Turning the throttle, and the same result, nothing.
So except for the lights, horn, and battery meter, nothing [the motor] works. What do I need to do?
Is there a way I can check the condition of the motor?
i can take pics if anyone needs them
