newbie with new bike but its all bad :-(
hey guys, i decided to register to this great forum because i just picked up an 03 cbr 600RR off a friend, i drove from ny to virginia to get it and the battery was dead. the bike has been sitting for a few months and was last started in december with no issues,(was jumpstarted off a running car) so i brought the bike home and noticed immediately that all the lights and everything worked down to the t but no fuel pump priming. There is an FI light on the dash. When the kill switch is off the FI light is off and red oil light stays on solid, then i turn the kill switch to run and the oil light goes out then the FI light stays on for 10 seconds then goes off and the oil light comes back on. Its not getting spark. i tried unhooking the harness from the front fairing the two big plugs i put a brand new battery 12.84v currently on a tender too. it cranks but no fire. i no the fuel pump is shot becuase he let it sit with no gas for months and im assuming condensation got the best of it. i drained the gas and tested the fuel pump by connecting it directly to the battery and nothing. i have 11.56v coming from the fuel pump plug but it slowly goes down millivolt by millivolt. i cleaned the kill-switch and tested all the relays and they all click. i replaced the fuel pump fuse under the seat cause it was blown. i am stumped and cannot afford to pay a dealer 70 bucks per hour to diagnose it. i spent every dollar i have on this bike and am broke and a college student. luckily the guy i bought it from is going to pay for the fuel pump. i checked the BAS and its mounted correctly but how do i test if it works? WHY IS THERE NO SPARRRRKKK!!!! PLEASE HELP ME i have searched the forums but cant find the answer to my problem...thank you all ps if i unhook the fuel pump connector does that cut off spark?
