It wouldn't hurt to check the ignition switch and the starter solenoid, but I have a feeling your battery is giving you an early warning that it's about to give up.

Mine stalled out the other day and would not restart straight away, but it was hot and the fan and headlights were on, I've now got a new battery ready to go in.

For Tech Questions Bike Model letters and Country are more useful than saying the year, for UK owners anyway, as registration year is not always the year of manufacturer model.

I thought those could be possible issues. What I found was that the main ground wire bolt was loose. I went to start this morning. All power came in as I turn the key and when I press the ignition button it died. So I started at the battery again and the ground was tight. I went to lossen it and the washer went through the tray. I added a bigger washer to it and it started fine. Do you think there is a bigger underlying issue there?

Its hard to say, but more often when a battery won't turn the engine over its an indication your battery is about to give up.

I've had a loose battery terminal in the tray and it shagged a new battery in less than 30 starts.
