Hello. I've got a 2006 Vegas (100ci) and I just got my tank back from being refinished (it has a couple dings). While it was off I also replaced the exhaust, and changed the oil. I installed it and now the bike won't start. Any suggestions?

It does have this little key fob with a red light blinking that says low battery... it came with the bike and I've just sort of ignored it- is that a device that prevents starting somehow?

When I turn everything on I can hear that fuel pump whine for a few seconds and it turns over fine. If I turn it off and on again it will (cycle?) again.
The fob is just black with a black rubber cover and the only thing it says is low battery below the little red led.

Sounds like you may not be picking up prime in the pump. There is a shreader valve behind the right cheese wedge. Cycle the key, and push the center in to reduce any air block. Do that a couple of times. It does sound like you have a guard dog security system, and you will need to change the battery. The Fob is a proximity device, but I'm pretty sure it cuts the fuel pump

I've figured out the fob is a lojack fob.

That valve may be the ticket... i did get some air and it did give me one pop, after bleeding so did it again and turning over 1 more pop but now batt is dead... on 6a, I'll try in an hour or so.

charging

Kevin, correct me if im wrong , i was under the impression that a trickle charger could overcharge a batt. where as a maintenance charger , senses the amount of charge and stops the charge untill the batt falls to a pre set level and then kicks in again, the procedure repeats itself over and over and will not kill your batt.

Yes, but I do not understand why you ask. It is his key fob that has the flashing battery light

kevinx,

not doubting you, just a lot of people plug in the batt tender and forget, & possibly cause another problem. and at my age when i remember something , i just have to run with it,


steve :D
