Went to a friends house today and everything was fine...until I went to go home and my new 09 V won't start. Turns over fine, fuses are fine and I even disconnected the battery for a couple of mins and she still won't start. Any suggestions before I take it back to the stealer. I have the battery on the Tender for the night hopefully thats all it is. Cheers
You say it "turns over fine", but that won't be the case if you try to start it in gear with the kickstand down or with the kill switch off: you won't hear anything when you press the starter in either of those situations. More description of the problem would help. It's a new bike (and presumably a new battery, unless your guy really is a "stealer"): it should run like a top.
Thanks for all the input. Have fuel, battery is fully charged, no FI light, fuses including main are all okay, gas is almost full. Haven't checked the spark. I do smell a little fuel so maybe a solenoid or something. Well back to the dealer tomorrow as I'm not into tinkering too much as it still brand new. Cheers and I will post what the findings are.
Well dealer called today said the bike was running and they could'nt figure out why it wouldnt start in the first place. No errors or anything, plugs and all where fine along with test drive. 20km into my drive home I started to loose power. I pulled the clutch and gave her gas and it just bogged and let out a small muffled pop and continued to lose power all the way to a stall. I'm starting to think its my fuel. I switched to Premium just for the fun of it and I think it could be contaminated. It honestly felt like it was starving for fuel like I was running out, no sputtering but gradual power lose. Could be related issues as BugR. Dealer is picking it up in the AM.
