Before we go on, we need to get a few terms to mean the same thing for all of us
Crank or cranking means that the starter motor is turning the engine...It doesn't mean that the motor is running though. It just means that pushing the starter button, the starter is working properly.
If the motor starts and runs... call it what you like... it's running, it fired up, etc.
So It started up and ran... Sweet. If it didn't start again, i'd double check you BAS bypass.
Do you have oil and coolant in the bike? If so, then next time you get it to start, let it run for a while to kind of clean everything out. 5-10 min...
It may have fouled plugs but that's about $75 to change. These aren't $5 plugs from wal-mart. One thing that helps start a flooded bike is to start it while holding the throttle all the way open... but let off when it starts, don't rev to 15K.
Give this a try and let us know.
