Have you inspected the inside of your gas tank? Was the tank clean with no gas in it when you put in known good gas? Take a flashlight, and look inside your tank, see if you see any contamination, or sediment.When the engine RPM increased due to the starter fluid it sounds amazing and clean. When I try to pull the throttle it chugs and makes the chugging/ringing noise I mentioned and dies out.
Hopefully you didn't f*ck up your engine by running it solely on starter fluid. Check to see if you see a puddle of melted aluminum on the ground below your engine.Runs good for like 2-3 seconds. Then putts for like 2-3 then dies. Never did starter fluid so I'm not sure if its just starter fluid.
Fer sure! Ya next test will be testing the injectors will be with an isolated power source with the fuel pump pressurizing the system. After that, ill be ebaying a harness!Just read this entire thread. I'm rooting for you OP.
All I can say is it sounds like it's for sure a fuel delivery problem. Hopefully cleaning out the injectors does the trick, but if not, I would start looking at your fuel pump and of course the wiring and all grounds
Previous owner claimed the the owner who had it before had it running as a daily. One day it didn't turn on. Parked it for a while, then sold it to the owner I bought it from. That owner claimed to have tested it and failed with no spark and that he now had it parked for a while. Quick test revealed that there was plenty enough on every coil. Not much information past that. Just been going through everything since. Bike is at 13.5k miles. Had aftermarket 05/06 fairings poorly modded onto this 2004, tip sensor bypassed, small dent on actual gas tank. I'm guessing it had at least one crash in its life. Definetly fuel delivery related at this point.Was the bike running before you bought it? Did or can you ask PO for previous mods or service done to it? Was there pc3 or similar fuel/air control there?
I see that the bike wasn?t running but was that the reason he sold it...
Did they do valve adjustment on the bike? If yes, who did it?
