1190 Adv electrical death

Hi Guys,

New guy here.
I have an 1190 adv which I have just ridden up to Malawi from Johannesburg, some 1700kms. My first ever adv ride.
Bike was great bar a couple of niggles, but the strangest thing happened when i was at my destination and putting it away.
Whilst taking the bike up some small steps into a store room, it stalled. I hit the starter button and there was a slight click from my rear right side and now the bike is totally dead. Rev counter is stuck on 2k, and nothing comes to life when the key is turned. Totally dead.
I checked the fuses under the seat and theres nothing blown, so are there any other fuses or master links on the bike?
Cheers,
Steve

I often want to take a shotgun to put my Adventures out of their misery but every time I ride I get of with that grin on my face...

did you try to 'gently' hammer it back to life?
tap anything with relays
mybe some stupid ass relay which got stuck...

Kill switch? I catch myself every now and then thinking my bike "died" and it's the damned kill switch being on(off?)!! On a 990 anyway. Don't know what the 1190 has. Sounds like you have another problem but...

What's on? No lights. Got a multi meter? Got a test light? First thing . Check battery terminal bolts, check voltage. Anything under 12.2 no way it will start. you said there was some small issue . What was that?

Thanks for the responses gents, however weirdest of things. Went to check the bike and lo and behold, turned the key and she sprang to life!!
not sure what on earth happened, but maybe something for people to keep an eye on!!

Poor earth, poor + connection, check battery terminals and starter relay terminal, starter motor terminals and earth lead on the engine.

No, this was more like a system shut down/freeze. The tacho sticking at 2000 was the giveaway the electronics had shut down. almost like a heat induced shut down or some other s/w crash.
from menory, i think i flicked the kill switch by mistake then thumbed the starter before the bike has done it's start up sequence, where the tacho sweeps around etc.
Strange that the bike shut down totally though.
