Another bike wont start thread.....

Well I rode my bike all day saturday, and at first my bike wouldn't start. But i tried it a couple more times then I gave it gas and she started right up... But today when I got home from work, I went to go start bike bike and and cranks normally and everything turns on normally, But the bike just wont fire up. Ive tried the 10 second flood situation, and still no luck, then I tried charging my battery, because it was starting to get weak after cranking it every 5 minutes.. and it just cranks over just as fast as it normally would every other time i start the bike. Ive tried pop starting it but I don't have enough speed where I am, and its very wet out right now. Any ideas on what I should do?

Thanks Jordan

Is the kill switch in the run position? When you turn they get to run, do you hear the fuel pump prime?

When you crank the bike, can you smell fuel from the exhaust? Checked to make sure that your plugs aren't fouled and that you are indeed getting spark?

yes I can smell fuel, and i haven't tried to see if I can get spark yet. but thats my next mission. my bike almost has 8,000 miles and that's when they recommend changing the spark plugs anyways, so it couldn't hurt to change them out.

At 8k miles, the plugs should be fine unless you're running a somewhat rich a/f ratio, or used bad gas which could cause some other issues. When cranking it, have you been opening the throttle any to get some air into the engine?

If the plugs check out and you have spark, it's pretty much either the IACV stuck closed or bad gas. Since there is an unburned fuel smell, that at least lets us know the fuel line and/or breather tube are not pinched and that the injectors are working.

Try getting a buddy to help you push start it. Might sound dumb but this is how I got mine running yesterday. When you get up to about 9-10 mph dump the clutch and have whoever keep pushing until its running. Its worth a shot, i mean it sounds like my situation.

Did you do anything different when trying to start it up, or hold it in a different position?

Here's an idea that will help prevent you from having this problem in the future... don't start the bike unless you're going out to ride it. It is very unlikely that you have an electrical problem but most likely it was flooded. Start it... ride it... shut it off keeps this from happening.
