Getting out my 2005 sv650 for the spring I first put it back together, as I had my tank off for the winter. When I first put the key in the ignition everything seemed to work fine, but it wouldn't start. I was overdue for a plug change, so I cranked it for a bit, but stopped and ordered some plugs.

The next time I put the key in (I couldn't resist trying again while waiting) the sound of the fuel pump priming was absent and the speedometer display failed to work.

The headlight still lights, and the starter will turn over the motor.

The fuses are fine.

Any ideas what could kill the pump and the display?

I fear that it will turn into a long disassembly / reassembly job that will eat away much of my riding season, and thought i would check for ideas.

Thanks in advance to anyone who read the above while giving it some thought.

Be well,
-Brian

There is a second fuse box, one under each seat. I started tracing the circuits, and found it then. Not before I had the front of the bike apart, but that's okay.

Now to wait to see if this blown fuse repeats itself.

Be well,

Yacoff,
Make sure your engine kill switch on the right handle bar is not on by accident!

Oops, that only explains the fuel pump not priming. Doesn't explain the display failure.
