Requiring assistance!!!- Bike wont start

Okay so heres the deal: few days ago i was ridin around and i was running low on gas, but i didnt have a chance to fill up i just went home. Went out to start the bike the next day and no love. It will turn over but wont fire. So i figured it was just out of gas so i got a tank and filled it up. Tried again, no love.. but I could smell gas in the exhaust so i know its getting fuel. I tried replacing the spark plugs thinking that was it but still no luck, does the same thing. its a 2003 CBR600RR with 7k miles.. any ideas on where to look next??

Thanks a ton!
Patrick

flooded? keep tryin without touching the throttle and when it sounds like it wants to start, open the throttle just a little while cranking it. thats the first thing that comes to my mind but that wouldnt explain why it just started doin it all of a sudden unless you were twistin on the throttle.

turn the key, and toggle the kill switch. you should hear the fuel pump prime. make sure you have the bike in nuetral, kickstand is up and the clutch is pulled in. that should eliminate any of the likely switches.

let us know what you find out.

well i thought maybe it was flooded when i first couldnt start it so i I tried killing the fuel intake by opening the throttle all the way but no love. I know the fuel injector is working because i can hear it kick on... its turning over but it sounds like it might not be firing...

i think the manual says open the throttle all the way and try starting it for about 10 seconds or so to clear all the fuel out of the cylinders. opening the throttle all the way just stops any more fuel from coming in but doesnt get rid of whats already there. try starting it with the throttle all the way open for 10-20 seconds

its a fuel in jected bike
just keep turning it over
do not trun the throttel
keep turning it over and it should start up if it is flooded it will drain out it self just keep turning it over with out giving it gas and if you keep reving it after its started with out giving it a chance to warm up chances are you could warp crap inside things heat up at diffrent temps

Yes it's fast. And no you cant ride it!

Opening the throttle all the way cuts off the fuel completly. This i know. I use nothing but premium. I'm pretty sure its not flooded. Its driving me nuts because it sounds like it wants to fire...... Ive drained the battery trying to start it (not in one solid go, of course) but im pretty sure if it was flooded it would have started by now??

pull your fuses out or disconnect your battery and leave it for ten minutes.... then put em back and try it again... maybe that will reset everything...couldnt hurt.... but i never went to mmi.

open the gas a little bit when it sounds like its wanting to fire. just dont flood it again if that was even the problem.

I have this same prob. every year when I try to start it in the spring and near the end of the season. At first I thought it my be the plugs so I had my mechanic buddy come over and take a look at it. The plugs were fine. We had to use some ether to get it to kick over, this was this last spring. Now I'm having the same issue. It just won't start. Quite a frew RR owners have this issue. I rode my bike all last week, but on Tuesday I was going to ride and it just won't start. I have cables hooked up to my truck battery, without the truck running while I'm turning it over, but it still won't start. Let us know what you come up if you get yours started!

In the future, you could try a rolling start. (My other bike is a Harley)

It only hurts while you're concious...
