So last time I started her up she fired first push of the button and idled away like new. Turned it off and it sat two days. Went to start it today and absolutely nothing. Sprayed a little starting fluid in the TB and nothing (rules out fuel, right?).

Oddly...if I wiggle the kill button it fires. I noticed this before but I thought I disconnected the switch and was still having issues. Could be remembering wrong.

I put on a new kill/light switch so will see if that makes a difference.

Edit: New kill switch didn't help. Must have been coincidence. Turn signals still acting weird as well. The search continues...

Take a closer look at the loom/cables behind the headmask and where they go past the breather hose. They move around when you steer and had my kill switch cable rubbed bad there.

I've confirmed that I have a bad ground situation, as least for my turn signals.

Now I have a couple more questions that might help me.

1. Did this bike come from the factory with turn signals? If so, where are they supposed to ground to? Mine were grounded to the top triple clamp which is not working out.

2. Assuming that both issues I have are due to a bad ground...where should I look for a bad ground that would be preventing spark?

No, it did not come with turn signals. I'm not sure what kind of kit was used, but they shouldn't have a separate ground. They should just plug into a harness. There are OEM parts available that make it a truly plug and play situation regarding street legal lighting.

If your turn signals have a separate ground that is wired to your top clamp, I would have a good look at the rest of the wiring on the bike. It sounds like it may need a little sorting.

I created an Excel file of all the OEM parts I used to install street legal lighting on my (at the time) stock 2011 FE390. I can email it to you if you'd like. You can also look at an EU spec spare parts list to see how things go together since they were street legal with signals and such.

I attached a pdf of the OEM parts list. If you want the Excel file PM me your email address.

Here's a link to all things Husaberg. Manuals, parts list, repair manuals, etc.

I do own a FE390 having light, turn signals and horn. Yes, they collect the ground wires on the top triple clamp.Since I drove Italian bikes before this one, I checked and improved wiring. Simply draw a wire, 1,5mm2, from the grounding under the saddle to the triple clamp to improve connection.

Working on just that right now . Strange that it worked just fine for 7 years and then one day...nope! Wonder what changed...

Well just from my experience:
- wiring comes loose in fuse box
- wiring comes loose in non-factory connectors
- 70degree rear tank mounting hurts cables and eventually cut through them
- loose cables get broken by the vibrations
- open connectors get corroded
- sensors deteriorate e.g. fuel level sensor lights up with full tank
- screws unscrew by all the vibrations
- filters glog up
- injectors glog up
And many many more in all those years. Most of this happend with the classics I owned. Although the thin wiring on the Husaberg already gave some issues.
