my '04 won't start for some reason.
last time i rode it was a little over a week ago. i noticed it had a bouncy idle. i gave the idle adjust screw a turn or two in both directions and it didn't really seem to do anything for it, but it would remain running. the bounce was from about 1300rpm to maybe 1700rpm. the bike has had poor performance under 5500rpm since i bought it. it's got a k&n filter and 2bro's slip and mid pipe. no power commander yet and i still haven't gotten a straight answer as to whether i even need the power commander or not.
after it not starting i figured i should check the air filter and it didn't seem that dirty at all, i could still see light through it. it's probably got over a thousand miles on it since i treated it last. i'm going to go ahead and clean and oil it again. it's soaking at the moment. but even without the air filter in the bike will not start.
i guess i'm about to pull the plugs to investigate further, but before i do, i was hoping someone here would have something i missed. here's the deal so far:
2004 600rr k&n filter, 2bros slip and mid, -1,+2 gearing, 21k miles on the clock without a speedo healer.
key on, gauges light, fuel pump primes
kill switch is on, and when cycled also is activating fuel pump
started and ran fine last time it was ridden(no more than 2 weeks ago), except for below 5.5k rpm which was everyday for this bike
starter spools up and engine turns over, rear wheel spins freely in neutral
almost ran while rolling on throttle while pressing starter switch. but will not fire up.
i guess i'm a little concerned with the idle adjustment screw. i can't tell if it's turning or not. i don't really trust the cable. i've also heard that they break. it's connected but i can't tell if it's functioning properly or not.
if anyone has a straight answer regarding the PC5 feel free to chime in also. if any of you guys can help me out with some ideas on how to get this beast running, i would GREATLY appreciate it.
it's a beautiful day and i'm off work, and my bike WONT start!!
