Okay, here's my dilemma.
Rode the bike for 10 minutes, shut it down, tried to restart, engine fired one time and will not start again.


Here's a rundown of what I've so far.

Disconnected battery to reset ecu
Checked kickstand switch with meter, okay
Fuel pump runs
Battery reads 12.4 volts
All fuses good
Battery on a tender to maintain voltage while I'll my hair out.
Fresh fuel

Rode bike yesterday for 30 minutes with no issues.

2012 848 Evo Corse
1400 miles with no mods.

I have completely run out of ideas before I call the dealer and trailer 130 miles for service.

So you hit the starter and it just spins and spins?

Can you hear the fuel pump cycle when you turn on the ignition key? How much fuel do you have in the tank?

Starter turns the motor over fine. I topped the battery off last night and again this morning, nothing. Motor turns over and over.

I can hear the fuel pump run and fuel tank is full, 93 octane.

Tried the kill switch with the clutch pulled in, same results.

The dash panel displays no error codes other than the 600 service error. I purchased the bike used, the owner changed the oil at 700 miles but did not bring it back the dealer for reset.

I checked ALL fuses and they're okay.

The next thing I'm going to try is pull the font spark plug and see if it has power.


kill switch?

Try starting with the clutch lever pulled in.

Does it throw any code or warning light on the dash?
Did you all so check the regulator fuse?
Starter relay or ignition coils?

Just somethings to check.

Could you post a video while trying to start the bike.

I followed the suggested links, very informative I might add but no luck.
Removed the front plug and checked for spark, all is well on that front. Checked for bubbling in the fuel tank and could deduct nothing.

A strange anomaly happened after I examined for spark when grounding the plug. When I depressed the start switch and releasing it the bike kept on turning over, as though the starter button was stuck. Turned the ignition off and again it happened. Third time I put down the kickstand, put it in gear, turned on the key, depressed the start button and bike would turn over and the only way I could stop it was to turn off the key. Yes, the bike is on a pit bull stand.

Disconnected the battery and it did not happen again. The bike still will not start.

I'm thinking this is out of my league and it's time to trailer it to a dealer.
