09 675D starting issues

I need help with a starting issue.
The bike ran great on recent trip. I trailered the bike home (15h) with some rain along the way then I parked the bike in the garage. Went to winterize the bike a couple weeks later but it wouldn’t start. As I turned the bike over it fired a few times and then nothing. The bike turns over no problem but just won’t fire.
Things I have check are as follows

*Air box has no moisture in it. Slight smell of gas
*Fuel relay is good
*Loom side of the regulator rectifier has 13v on it
*Reg rec checked and seems to be good
*Stator checked out ok
*Bike has gas
*Battery is good.

Any ideas before I hand the bike and my wallet over to the dealer would be much appreciated

Always start with the simple stuff. You either have a fuel or a spark problem, simple check pull a plug out, leave it connected to the ignition coil and ground the plug to a good ground, start bike, see a spark? If so try the other 2 plugs, if all spark than you have a fuel problem. If any or all don't spark replace all the plugs and you should be g2g.

Explain in detail how you know the battery is good. Is it turning over slowly or only a few times then stopping?

If you can rely on your ability, you don't have to worry about reliability.

I tested the battery while the bike was off, during turn over. It turns over great, it just doesn't fire.

The kill switch and ignition are good. I have to check the plugs yet. Gotta get the motivation up to dig down to the plugs.

Then water in the fuel tank maybe. The fuel pump pulls right off the very bottom of the tank so if there was water in there from the rain then it would be pulled in first.

This can happen if the seal isn't tight on the filler cap. Also if the drain around the filler is plugged (sometimes the drain hose gets pinched) when you open the filler cap the water pooled around the cap will go into the tank.

I've seen a similar issue with a bad crankshaft position sensor. It's part of the stator assembly because the wiring for the stator and crank sensor run in the same harness from the stator cover to up underneath the gas tank.

If the sensor goes bad, the bike won't start. It'll just turn over without firing.

Just to double check.. When you first turn on the bike, does it make the usual set of noises that make it sound like an old 56K modem? Is there anything that's missing?

Before you buy anything expensive, Get a copy of TuneECU for free and buy the $20 USB cable from eBay to plug your computer into the diagnostics port. TuneECU has a lot of great diagnostic tests you can run, including cycling on and off pretty much every major system on the bike.

If the fuel pump is working, take the air box off and hook your gas tank back up. Then try starting it while looking into the throddle bodies. Throddle wide open, you should see gas being injected to the valves. If not the crank sensor is shot. Good luck

If it were me.... I would buy a can of starter fluid, turn the ignition on, hold the throttle wide open.....and spray the fluid in the front grill while cranking.

If the engine starts & runs for a bit......you have eliminated many variables.

Based on it starting, next I'd drain the gas and put new gas & Staybil in the tank.
