ANOTHER "bike wont start thread"

So i've been rebuilding my bike since June, and finally, it's almost done. I t-boned a truck and had to replace the front end of my bike.

Off and on, i would start the bike up. It would start right up, only problem was a dead battery.

One day, i started it up and it turned right over. I ran it for a minute, and out of nowhere, it died. I tried to start it for a couple seconds, but i didn't want to flood it or kill the battery, so i stopped. This was probably a month ago.

Flash forward to now .. my bike (03 RR) is SOO close to getting done. I knew the 03's had problems with the rectifier, and my showed symptoms, o i replaced it with an 05 (this was after it died, as said in the paragraph above). I also just put in a brand new battery. I hook it all up, mount the BAS where it should be (i do not believe i did this the last time it started it up. It was on the ground on it's side), get the harness all plugged in (other then a blue turn signal clip and a few very minor other clips), and press the start button. It's cranking really really hard (not giving any gas), but won't turn over. I give it a little gas, and the noise changes a bit, but still wont start.

Not wanting to kill my battery, i stop.

Any ideas? I'm scared this is gonna hold me down for awhile, when my bike is sooooooooooooooo ... sooo close to being back on the road :(

TIA

i read the other threads, and alot of em talked about the BAS. I made sure it was connected, and it was. I even unplugged it, blew on the connections (hey, it works on NES!), and plugged it in tight. Also took it off the rubber stay, to make sure it was facing the right direction.

Then i check all the connections of the rest of the harness. Everything is plugged in, except a small narrow light blue connection, which is for blinkers i believe? I can't find the other end to it, so it's unconnected. Also two wires on the oposite side, which were wired for blinkers as well, which i cut off.

Other then that ... new battery, new rectifier, power to all accesories, it's in neutral, it's got a good charge, it just wont catch.

like i said, last time i had it started, it started right up then died a minute later for no reason. Since then, it hasn't started.

if you have any idea, please help. thanks

Try the full throttle method, If it doesn't start after 3 sec. stop.. Mine did the same, stall then nothing.. Full throttle came back to life.. injectors were leaking... Never done it since.. Check back and let us know.

Is the fuel pump running? turn key flip on switch listen. If no then it can be a couple things, (BAS) bank angle sensor. From what i read with the cut wires, id check all fuses, and the relays, ther on the left side under the airducts. If its not that and you still have no fuel pump, then it must be the diode in the ignition. If your fuel pump is running,, check the vent to the gas tank. they can create suction if clogged and run bike out of fuel. humm, from that point id pull a plug wire and see if you have spark.

man this is gonna be a pain.

i just tried what you guys said.

i turned the key to ON, and heard nothing other then the cluster doing it's thing (speedo and tach go up and down, lights up).

then i opened it up full throttle, and tried to start it for about 5 seconds. this did nothing. then i tried for 3 or so seconds with no throttle, this did nothing.

where should i go from here?

thanks for the replies, and the help. It really means alot.

if you heard nothing then it has to be your fuel pump...are you sure that relay is okay?...if it's okay your pump is bad.

You want to hear your relay click on the left side of the tank... You will also hear a whine that is your fuel pump... BAS....

so when i turn the key to ON, i'm listening for the relay click, and i should hear a whine from the fuel pump?

i just checked all the relays to make sure they're connected. They are.
I just checked the fuses, and the START/BAS one is GOOD.

I'll listen to the relay when i get back, but i dont remember hearing the whine from the fuel pump. The only thing i heard was the cluster doing it's thing.

Thanks for the help, i really appreciate it. :)

HAYAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA.

i';m an IDIOT. My BAS was upside down LOL. I always thought the BAS was the headlight relay, so in short, i'm an idiot. I had the two switched around in my head.

thanks alot guys, sorry for being an idiot lol
