Default bike wont start

I have a 2004 r6.

My bike was working perfectly fine until I replaced my coolant. After that, my bike wouldnt start. When my bike key is turned to "ON" , my lights and speedo come on, but when I try to start it, all I hear is the starter buzz/tick. Could it be because of some spilled coolant? While I was pouring coolant into the radiator, some coolant spilled out. I tried to start the bike once every hour, but it hasnt worked all day. Can someone help resolve this problem.

**I just removed the underseat and tried starting the bike. I located that the buzzing/clicking noise is coming from the big black box where alot of wires go into.

not to sound silly.. but is the battery flat??. Did you spill coolant everywhere when you changed it?

Just been looking up the code:
Er-1...... No Signal received from the ECU

. (open or short circuit in the wiring sub lead)
. (malfunction in the meter)
. (malfunction in the ECU)

Id be making sure the battery was not flat to start with, then id be checking all the multiplugs and spraying with WD40. (not forgetting of course to check all your fuses

Hope that helps

No, I didnt spill coolant everywhere, just some drizzled out of the radiator when it was filling up. I'm going to check later to see if my batteries flat.

Where is the ecu and the meter? I want to check into those things too.
