A female friend of mine w/ an 06 R6 is a novice rider & the other day she hit a curb goin about 10-15mph making a right turn & laid it down a bit on the left side. Now it wont start. Whenever you turn on the ignition to on you can hear the fuel pump but when hit the start button all you hear is a clicking sound toward the rear of the bike. It clicks till you let go. Any help would be appreciated. just trying to help her out & i know what a good source of information forums are. Thanks.

Is it correct that there is some sort of switch for neutral safety, or a switch on the kickstand? What would happen if they are inop? Would the symptoms be similar? And where are they located? battery connections look snug.

I don't know if this will help but there are three safety switches that could be effected. There is one on the upper part of the kickstand. One on the clutch lever at the pivot point and one on the engine that shuts it off when the bike is on it's side. With that said, I don't think those are the problem. I would check the fuses and check the battery itself too make sure it has a good change. If the safety switches are tripped the bike usually won't click or try to turn over. Hope this helps.
