The bike has been sitting for a while. It was wrecked in the front, but has the forks replaced . Not a hard hit.

I immediately suspected the crank position sensor but I suppose that is what you called the PG you replaced. Have you checked the fuses? I can't get my 01-05 ETM to open so I can't say which one exactly.

Yes I checked all fuses, The tilt sensor checked good. Kick stand switch, ok . Turns over good but no spark to plugs. Bike has only 4950 miles on it.

Make sure it is getting power in & out of fuse #17, if so it could be the FI relay, first one on the right side of the front row.
It won't crank if the tilt sensor is tripped, kill switch off or side stand down with it in gear.

Changed the fuse with a new . Old fuse good. changed the relay. The motor cranks over good but no spark. Kill switch is good. Works ok.

No spark? I would bet you are more than likely not getting any fuel pressure either with key ON or cranking. If you can get to the fuel tap port easily check for fuel pressure, that might help someone narrow it down.:)

As I said, it won't even crank with the kill switch off so no worry there. I guess you are going to have to do some diagnostic work at the ECM connector. Do you have a manual?

I have a 2003 goldwing and took ECM out of it and put it in the bike still no spark.

I wonder if the bank angle sensor got twoinked in the accident?

Yes, twoinked is an engineering term.

No the bike way inside a garage with other bikes. People were in the garage every day. Wiring does not look damaged, checked all the wiring.

An 18 year old motorcycle in a garage and it only has 4950 miles on it. There is always a posaibility that rodent activity has happened. If so, it will not be seen readily. A deeper inspection will certainly be needed.

If it was in a garage, there is especially a chance that mice got into it. Mice hate being outside in the winter, so,...

Sorry, I do not have a manual for this year. But I remember reading something about an electrical connection in a socket near the engine block that can corrode and create problems. To access this connector you have to disassemble the air filter box. Unfortunately not much help but the best I can do now.
