wing won't start

02 GL1800. When I turn on the key, the neutral light goes on briefly then everything goes dark like there is no battery connection. Bike won;t start. Battery checks good connections are tight. Anybody have an idea what might be causing this?

Have you put a volt meter on the battery terminals and tried the key? It sounds like a bad battery that has a plate disconnecting when the load hits it. If your battery voltage stays above 11.5 volts when you turn on the key, it's not the battery, but I'm betting the voltage will take a nose dive when you turn on the key.
