:( I just had my dealer off-load my Rune in my garage and after they left my Bike would'nt start. I called and they said they started it to get it to the trailer for loading.
I've had my bike since nov. '04 and no problems.
The Starter turns,I get plenty of fuel ,no Fire!
I tried the Flooded engine fix, no luck...
I checked fuses and connections,battery,etc. no luck...
Any suggestions ?
Thanks !!!

wont start

Sounds stupid, kill switch in run? I had a friend, ran the battery dead then saw the kill switch was off.

Pull a plug and see if you have spark when you turn it over.

The only other thing I can think of is if the bike got tipped over enough and some how the bank switch is engaged. Thats a oil filled switch that shuts off the bike if it falls over. It self centers once its back up.

Try the other key. Maybe its reading the first key correctly. Shot in the dark.


do you hear the fuel pump pressurize when you turn the key?

I can't be one of the simple/stupid ones cos he said that the engine turns over. All of those would give a dead engine. :?
My 2c, like Rune 102 says, pull a plug see if it's firing and how the plugs look ( wet, black etc etc)

If any og the advices above

HiRev,

If any of the advices above dosen't do the trick, and you still don't have the plug sparking, you must have an electrical problem other than fuses not working, and you must call the dealer (again).

For JerseyIllusion and Runerod I'll just mention that here in Denmark it´s considered a certain kind of impolite patronizing communication behavior to adress a present person in third person, like "he" ... :wink:

Point taken anyway, JerseyIllusion :)

Switch...

You know. Sometimes we do look right past the obvious because it seems too simple. We have all done it and will all do it again... Glad you are up and running again...

Odd ? Engine will not Fire!

Hey Guys,
The Plugs were fouled-out !...I only have 953 miles on it. :shock:
I use Exxon 93 Octane and haven't had any problems!
The service mgr. says just a bad set? :roll: Oh.well we'll see in time if that's the case.
I did ask if the injection was calibrating the right fuel mixture...he said Yes!
8) So, we'll see...

Again,Thanks to ALL for your suggestions!

plugs

Hi,
at an Honda tecnical meeting j get informed that when the plugs are wet they break.
j think the only way to have the plugs wet is to swich off the emergency near the trottle when the engine is running fast.
thanks for the news and nice rides
ciao

If you switch to SHELL 93 you will have less soot on your exhaust. Try it out. I quit using Exxon.
