awesome write up. Should really help me out this weekend!!
You may have done what I did; you can install the pulse generator backwards in which case it will not permit the engine to light. Unfortunately, the only way to tell is to pull it open again...So I disconnected my battery, took my covers off. I made sure to get everything off properly. After getting things pc'd I put them back on. I made sure to put everyting back on properly, etc. After I get the bike back together, I tried to start it, it turns over but only a couple times without firing. Fuel Pump primes. But it acts as if the battery id dead. I replaced the battery, same issue. Ive even tried charging the battery, still the same issue. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Make sure the pulse generator signal is mounted correctly (it can be installed backwards.) You'll have to crack it back open.Just did the clutch cover on my '08, ran into a snag. After fooling with the clutch lever rod for what seemed like an hour , I got it all back together. When the bike is in gear on a stand and I pull in the clutch, I can barely rotate the rear tire. Also when I put the key in the ignition, I get an oil light, and the bike cranks but won't start. What could I have overlooked?
Thank you very much for the help:shakehand. I did have the CKP sensor installed incorrectly. That solved my starting issue. However, I still have the issue of the clutch being engaged preventing me from putting the bike in gear. I don't get it, It all went in like it should. I rotated the spindle while putting the cover on, and it drew the cover in as if it seated correctly. I adjusted the linkage and it still won't go in gear without stalling. :cursin:Make sure the pulse generator signal is mounted correctly (it can be installed backwards.)

Make sure the wave and thrust washers are on in the correct order.
Sweet success!Is the bike still on the stands? If the kickstand is down the bike will die when you pop it into first. Hmm.
