Bike Won't Start: fuel in oil, fire from exhaust
Hi 675 forum, I could use some help diagnosing what's wrong with my bike.
Bike: 2006 Daytona 675, 4100 original miles
*bike shut off while riding on the highway, I pulled over, bike wouldn't start. When I stood it upright from the sidestand I had fire coming from the muffler which went out in about 10 seconds.
*CEL; bike still won't start
*I changed the oil and noticed a strong guzzoline smell coming from the used oil.
While discussing this with the original owner (I am the second owner; I've only put a couple hundred miles on it), I learned that he never replaced the recalled rectifier/regulator. I just ordered a MOSFET unit from Rick's. I'm not sure if this is causing the issue, but I imagine it should be replaced regardless.
I would really appreciate any insight.
