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

Initially, a little more background info please:

  • • has it been in storage for a length of time;
  • • is this a sudden recent issue;
  • • or slowly developing while in use;
  • • any recent work, repairs or mods done.

Have you tried attempting a start with the side stand up?

Expert:  Louie replied 9 months ago.

If the side stand was not corrective, please check:

  • presence of IGN+12 on the orange/white wires to the ignition coils and the ECM;
  • pulsating low voltage between the 2-wires of the pickup coil when attempting to start;
  • clicking sound from the injectors likewise when attempting to start;
  • and if the fuel pump work or even at least primes immediately on ignition on.
