Won't start, i need some guidance please
Hi guys, I've reassembled my bike and filled the cooling system so i though i would start it and get the system bled...... no dice.
My bike has the HRC ECU and loom, so no safety switches etc to check but i'm still a bit lost on where to go next.
What i've done,
The kill switch works, it turns the bike on and off, it cycles the gauge cluster and primes the fuel pump, fresh fuel in the tank.
I've checked the relays, i have 3 and they all test the same.
I have 12v at the plug that feeds the coil packs and continuity from that plug to each plug that sits atop the coils.
I have no spark at the plugs, checked #4 by grounding it and nothing, at all.
I'm not thinking it's the ECU because the rest of the bike behaves as it should, my battery has been sitting around, its been charged and reads ok, when i try to start it i get between 10 and 11v under load so it doesn't appear that a cell is dead but it recharges very quickly.
Can a bad battery turn the engine over fast but not supply a signal to start the bike?
I've checked the BAS as per the many threads i've looked at by bridging the outside connectors and when i do that the fuel pump primes so i'm assuming the BAS which does the same is ok?
Where should i look next? i'm thinking i need a tech with a diagnostic tool but if there are any sensors i should check before i call one i would appreciate the pointers.
