The bike had been sitting idle, garaged, for the last 8 weeks while we were away on vacation. Prior to that, it always cranked right up, no problem. Could this period of non use have something to do with my problem? Starter turns the engine over very rapidly, so no prob there. Thanks in advance, Mitzger
As Stated Follow the check list. When in doubt Change the ignition fuse. Is your battery fully charged and has enough fuel to be pick up? Make sure the fuel pump is pumping fuel could be bad clogged fuel filter. If you are not running non ethanol fuel there can be water separation that makes the fuel inert. Startron or Seafoam can restore whatever. you have in it. make sure you do not have a bad petcock.
Hopefully between the list, and simple deduction will put u on the right path.
