I can watch the video but no sound, I need some sound to hear how quick its turning over.
btw... you can twist the throttle till your blue in the face when your starting it, the bike is fuel injected--- the ecu isnt going to give you anymore fuel than it normally does starting. That only works with carburetors.
remember basic internal combustion. Suck, squeeze, bang, blow (fuel/air, compression, fire, exhaust)
1: intake (check your airfilter) rats nest or bees nest in the intake tracts? don't laugh, i've seen it more than once.
2: fuel, you said theres fuel in the tank. But is it getting out of the tank to the rail.
the fuel pump is humming you said, but there is a fuel filter screen in the tank that may be stopped up (<---not likely but possible) you can take the line off the bottom of the tank to see if its getting past (becareful to catch the fuel that will come out or your going to make one hella mess.
***OR*** get some brake parts cleaner or carburetor cleaner from your local parts store and spray several shots in the front intake section of your fairings... if the bikes fires and tries to run---voila--- you have yourself a fuel problem
generally if you have a sparkplug or fuel injector problem, they dont all go bad at once, they will cause a misfire while running, not a no start condition.
3: compression, if for some strange reason you have lost compression, something catastrophic has happened. but the easiest way to tell is the engine will spin much faster than normal. <---again, very unlikely that this has happenend
4: "blow" if the exhaust has become clogged, i.e. rats nest, matchbox cars (if you have kids) or rags. then the bike will sound muffled and spin over slow.
99: another very unlikely problem is timing, timing chain has broken, timing chain tensioner failed, or broken camshafts/stripped cam sprockets. all of these would most likely have happened while riding and believe me, you would have noticed it.
