oooook so.

End of last season my bike wouldnt turn on. Im dealing with it now. The bike was starting fine and then one night it was acting a little funky and was essentially turning off, and then turning back on. Later that night after the problem had subsided we stopped, i shut the bike off and it wouldnt start back up, was doing something similiar to what it is doing now.

I loaded the bike in a truck to get it home, when i unloaded it i decided to try and start it, and like magic it started up. It ran fine after that for a month or two. and then one day i came out to start it and it would only crank, and no backlight in the gauge.

The current conditions are as follows.



Turn the key and there is a gauge sweep, but gauge backlight doesnt come on, and fuel pump doesnt cycle.

The bike will crank alll day long but it just wont start.
Iv tried push starting.... it wont go.

The neutral light will light up, and the oil light comes on in the gauge, just no white light lighting everything up.

Looking for a solution, or if anyone has had previous symptoms or may have an idea to aid me.....

The bike has been sitting on a trickle charger for the past 5 or so months in the same non starting condition it was in...


thanks in advance, trying to get it right before the season

the guage light and no start could be 2 different faults, check your fuel pump fuses/relay.

Tomorrow i am going to try bypassing the bank angle sensor, and possibly checking the relays.....


The real question i have is the fuel pump isnt priming, ok, theres some possible reasons, but why is the fuel pump not priming and the gauge not lighting, are they related somehow?

Another thing to check is the kill switch. Seems they're a bit unreliable (become intermittent) if you use them regularly when turning off the bike. Open it up and check/clean the internal contacts.

i would doubt kill switch and bas but doesnt hurt to make sure. i would check fuses. a lot of the time, 2 things will be connected through a single fuse. if the problems are related, that would be my guess but wouldnt explain the working on and off. i dont know a whole lot about relays but that could very well be the problem too.

k.... yea im gonna check some of that stuff today..


My thought about it being the kill switch is y would the bike be cranking over and over if it was the kill switch, wouldnt it just not respond?

Start with the simple solutions first
1. Make sure the battery is fully charged
2. Check the fuel pump relay
3. Check the kill switch connectors
4. Check the fuse box

The fuel pump has to prime as soon as you turn the key on any of the issues above
can cause the fuel pump not to prime and with out that the bike will not start

That is not true the bike will crank even when the kill switch is switched to the on position it will stop the fuel pump from getting powered ie not start the bike

ok cool, well then that is something else i am going to check, the fuel pump definately isnt priming so im gonna have to check that,

i guess the gauge not lighting could be another problem all together.

The gauge not lighting up might be the main connector being loose or the led back light got burned if it was a fuse the gauge wont function at all

The fuel pump is one of two the relay or the kill switch but it would not hurt to make sure the battery is fully charged a weak battery wont have enough juice to get all the electronics working properly at the same time

Its been on a trickle charger for about 24 hours, and it wasnt completely dead before so it should have all the juice it needs.

Do you know which relay of the relays operate the pump??

I believe your RR is an 05 / 06 and if i am correct There is 3 relays behind left side mid fairing from memory i think the middle one is the fuel pump relay you might be able to get to it by taking the left side ram air cover have you checked the kill switch connectors ?

Yep its an 05, i found the relays, can i just swap one for the fuel pump one and see if it gets it to prime then i know if its a bad relay, or do i need to get a new one....


So how do i go about checking the kill switch?

You can swap the relays to do the testing as far as the kill switch you have to open the controls and make sure the connections are solid its not that hard

Swapped the relays around and it didnt change anything, fuel pump still didnt prime, also the gauge has everything working except the backlight for the record.


When im trying to open the click switch housing it wont come all the way. Iv taken out the two screws in it and it will start to oull up about a half an inch but wont come off, like its getting caught on something.....
