Hi Steven, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, attempt to re-start with the side stand folded up and the clutch lever pulled in.

Still, let's review the basics to serve as preliminary checks (if have not been done):

  • • attempt to re-start, then carefully remove the spark plugs;
  • • determine if the spark plug tips got wet with fuel;
  • • cautiously perform a spark test;
  • • inspect the starter relay.

Hey Louie, I'm Steven.I'm about to head into work but I'll give these a shot over the weekend. Hopefully one of those works. I'm really not wanting to take it into the shop. $$$

Appreciate the post back Steven and would look forward to an update when able.

Incidentally, consider re-inspecting the battery, its ground lines and/or re-check and re-clean the battery cables + terminals, connectors and wiring.

More importantly, have the battery externally charged and also LOAD TESTed (even if new/charged and just for the purpose of eliminating it as a potential suspect).

...again if have not been done.

No luck.tried it with the side stand up, checked the spark plugs (not easy) tested them, made sure they were spaced correctly, tried new ones, checked the starter relay (had to have an election buddy help with that) and check everything with the battery. Still, nothing....

Please confirm:

  • checked the spark plugs - sparks when attempting to start;
  • checked the starter relay - jumped the 2 big terminals.

Nothing you sugusted worked. It ended up being a disconnected fuel filter hose. I'd like a refune.
