Twice in the past 4 days I have experienced a hard start. First instance, I went out just like always got on bike, put in nuetral, pulled in clutch and hit start button. Normally after sitting over night or in this case one day without running, it will take 3-5 seconds for the bike to start. In this case, I cranked and nothing but a small almost un-noticable hiccup in the exhaust. Cranked again and nothing, cranked again and nothing. The bike will turn over fine, just not start. Same thing happen again this AM without the hiccup. the first instance I left it and drove the car instead, came back later in the day and she cranked and started as usual. Today, I continued to crank it and after 4-5 trys, it started. The first time the gas was low, today it was full. Plugs look good also, however, I have had it a year and have not replaced them.

A few things come to mind. The times it didnt start did you hear the fuel pump prime up? If not check the kill switch and check both dogbone fuses. I had a bad one. The main was ok but the one going to the starter also works the fuel pump on the fuelies. I replaced both with blade fuses. Hope this helps.

Yes the pump was running and the lights went off on the dash. Dog bones have been replaced with blade fuses. Kill switch, well it was the first thing I looked at. I never use it but I guess it could fail. Thanks for the reply.

Did you check the coil wires and spark plug caps listen for spark jumping or try to start it in the dark and look for spark jumping. :baffled::baffled:
