After 2 weeks of not riding my bike turns over but wont start..towed it into repair shop and it started up out of nowhere...they think the vibration of towing did something...anyone heard of this happining?
Thanks, i did check those before towing in, the tow must have vibrated loose the problem since it started right up their..maybe relays, fuel pump?Welcome to the forum. Where are you from?
There are several things that can cause those symptoms. Kill switch, ignition switch and kickstand switch are all prone to getting dirty and sticking. Check all these before digging into any relays or other possible causes.
Possible, but since it's so intermittent it may be hard to diagnose. May also be some corrosion on the position sensor connectors.Would it be the pulse generator? Our F6B had that issue
I have a 2012 GW with 8800 miles which I rarely ride. On Friday, it did not want to start but it did start and I let it run for 25 mins. Yesterday It refused to start.I put an altimeter and it showed 12.7 voltage. Took the battery out cleaned the terminals and put it on a Tender for 5 hours. re installed still will not crank. the fuel pump comes on and the tank is full of gas. Has anyone encountered this problem before? Please advise.It could be, did you get codes? I didnt get any, service manual says you should get some
You are mostly correct it is the beginning of a problem. I would only drive it only as far as you could get some one with a trailer to come pick it up. It's a bitch to be 300 miles from home and the bike not start or have something else go wrong. Could be a costly venture if you had to wait for a week for parts to come in. You could run up some expensive motel bills. It has been my experience if there is an intermitent problem, it is just a matter of time before it will just quit. Sometimes that is the only way to find a problem so you can fix it.After 2 weeks of not riding my bike turns over but wont start..towed it into repair shop and it started up out of nowhere...they think the vibration of towing did something...anyone heard of this happining?
