My MP3 500 has been sitting for 4 years with a no charge issue. Been riding the BV 350 and haven't looked at the MP3 since my first try at diagnostics.
So got back to look at the MP3, stator tested good, regulator replaced right before it was parked. Tested 30 amp fuse in the relay (Tested, DID NOT remove the fuse, that was a mistake).
Could not find a problem, so started looking again. Tested stator again, tested 30 amp fuse, Then I pulled out the 30 amp fuse and only one leg of the fuse was attached.
The plastic around the fuse looked like it got hot at some point. The reply is done, grabbed the reply off the parts MP3 and think I am good to go now. Waiting on a new battery from Amazon.
If it works, I then need to replace the Tilt Lock Pressure Sensor and do the gonzo fix on one of the forks and the MP3 will be back on the road.
Will fix the notch once I do the valve adjustment on the BV 350 (Which is the reason for getting the MP3 back on the road) The BV350 uses shims for valve adjustment, so have to measure clearance on the valves, then pull each shim out to get the thickness off the shim, then order the correct thickness shims.
So the moral of the story is, pull the 30 amp fuse to check it, don't just test it with a meter.
