You should get very close to the 12v battery voltage across the Y/G & B/Y wires with the clutch pulled in when you press the starter button.

The battery is 3 years old, although Im fairly certain it is OK. 12.3 volts should be fine from what I have read.
Looking at the manual, referencing the section Starter motor will not run of 9-12, I followed those directions.
There is no click in the starter relay.
I checked the starter relay voltage, according to the manual 'is a voltage OK', IDK what 'OK' is Im getting 0.3 Volts across the starter relay.
My electrical knowledge is limited, should everything read the same voltage as across the battery - 12.3 Volts?
Sorry for any silly questions I've never worked on the bike before.

An AGM battery at 12.3v (assuming its lost any surface charge) is at around 70% capacity and should easily start the bike.

Sounds like a  dying  battery.  How old is it ?
I get  13V  open circuit on my year old battery.

You need a service manual. If you go to manuals.lib you can find one. In section 9 there are diagrams and a fault finding guide.

Maintenance and Servicing / Electrical Issue
« Last post by anthony28 on Today at 03:52:36 AM »
Tonight I tried to start up the bike after it sitting under a tarp for about a month.
After turning the key, the lights turned on, but when I tried to start the engine, it turned off.
Since then, turning the key does nothing - the lights dont even turn on.
I assumed it was a battery problem but it is putting out 12.3 volts.
I checked the fuses under the seat and they seem ok.
Is there another 'main fuse' that I should check?
Also is there a standard procedure for troubleshooting this kind of thing specifically for this bike?

Thanks for any help!

Modifications and Appearance / Changing transmission on 250 V-Strom
« Last post by Andy17 on Yesterday at 02:47:27 PM »
Hi!
I have a V-Strom 250 in France, cousin of your's Inazuma, I really like this bike but I would like to reduce the engine speed of my 250, for information at 90km / h the engine runs at 7000 rpm, passing to a pinion of 15 or 16 teeth ratio instead of 14, original is 14 * 47.
Do you have any links, personally I cannot find a 15 or 16 tooth sprocket. JT Sprockets does not produce it for information.

Who carried out this operation?

Thanks for your comments, it's a great bike!

You seem to like posting links or questions about Viking products. Same thing on lots of forums makes us suspicious.
