another bike wont start....

well like most we had some snow recently. I had the bike put away for only 2 weeks in my garage on a charger. Battery was replaced earlier this year, and still shows a full charge. The bike just doesn't seem to want to turn over. I replaced the plugs as they were pretty fouled. I can get the bike to start but as soon as I lift my thumb off the starter button it dies. There is some smoke but it looks like water vapors. i have checked relays, fuses, bac, even had a spare ecm sent in. I also pulled the each plug to make sure they were sparking.

Anyone else have an idea? Is it possible the gas went bad in only 2 weeks?

I am really enjoying my 2011 honda fit but I need back on the cbr haha

If your gas went bad in 2 weeks that means it was bad when u got it. Try holding the throttle open when you crank it

I had tried that. If I worked the throttle I could get it to start but it still would die on me.

Maybe its flooded. Try cranking with throttle wide open. If your battery sounds weak, jump it off a car (car engine OFF).

^^^ definitely fuel pump then. They have a tendency to work sporadically when they are on their way out.
