I don't know if anyone is going to be able to figure out with out actually being in the presence of my bike, but I'll ask anyway. Bought a 1990 EX500 from E-Bay off a guy who lives close to me. However the bike won't start(no noise at all, no dash lights). He said all it needed was new sparkplugs, air cleaner, and battery. All I've done so far was swap the battery. Put it in then tried turned the key, still no lights on on the dash..... I'm thinking maybe the guy got over on me. I did try to get him to start it before I bought it, but he couldn't. The guy was trying for like an hour with the dead battery and since he had a very good rating on e-bay I probably did the dumb thing and trusted him. Could the igniter be bad, the wiring from the battery, the fuse box? Just trying to get some idea of where to start from. Thanks.
