sounds like the battery..........

an issue i have though which you might like to look out for is the clutch switch, that tells the bike the clutch lever is pulled in so u can start it.
mine is dodgey and sometimes i needs to pull the clutch lever in , then push the switch towards the lever then start the bike.

i am ok with it "as is" now as it's my secret immobilisar

put the bike in third gear

roll it on a street as fast as you can (maybe one person pushing)

jump off the clutch and give slight throttle

ups !!!!!!! it is running

happend to me last weekend and well just trust everyone it is the battery ( in my case it was myself stoping on a mountain killing the rngine with the sidestand and forgetting to turn off the ignition for several minutes the weekend before)

by now i have an extra cable on the battery to conect it without taking off the seat to the batterietender

There are no Kangoroos in Austria

My bke is having this exact problem! Has anyone rewired theirs to remove this switch?

Outside of doing this how can I repair the switch?

I'm sure you could just cut the switch off and wire it like a closed loop
I'll leave mine the way it is for my "Secret Immobiliser"

It turns over but does not fire

My Daytona 675 has been sitting outside, under a cover, for the last 3 weeks without being turned over and with the battery plugged into a trickle charger. Now I need to use the bike it powers up and the starter motor turns strongly but it does not want to fire. I have tried a few times and even left it for over 2 hours before trying again with no success

I would welcome some views on where to start looking for the problem.

Left mine 6 cold months without a ride when I was abroad, and it started just fine... Because I had disconnected the wires ;)

The slower you move, the more dangerous your bike is... I'll let you work out the conclusion from there

If you find wearing proper gear's too hot, you're just not fast enough !

I'd try and roll start it, that may help in case you flooded the EFI on previous attempts

Same Problem, but Battery OK

Hi Guys!

I have a 2007 model here in Dubai and I have the same problem of not starting. To explain the problem history and fault finding to date:

I rode the bike home and went to bed. Next morning, I tried starting the bike but it would not fire. The engine turns over ok, but no fire in the cylinders....

I have done the following to isolate the fault:

Interrogated the ECU (with Tuneboy) for error codes. One found. Fixed the seized EXUP valve. Once fixed, the error went away.
Replaced the battery.
Replaced damaged/faulty starter relay.
Bypassed all safety switches (side stand, gear lever etc...).
Removed the power commander and reset back to factory map in the ECU.
Manually checked the wiring harness to see if there are any damaged wires - all ok.
No spark physically present at the spark plug.

Have not checked the coils.
Have not replaced the ECU yet.

Does anyone have any other things I can possibly check before I replace the ECU and the coils?

Any help or suggestions are most gratefully received

Exclamation What Did I Do??

Hey all, I have been preping this bike to take it to the track. The Bike started and ran fine about 36 hours ago. IT IS NOT THE BATTERY. I have a volt reader and battery charger everything is tip top on the voltage side. The R/R has been replaced after market W/heat shield. NOT THE STARTER BUTTON, I swapped it with my D675 street bike to double check.

SO, I was doing some work and disconnected the gauge cluster. I have read the bike wont start w/o it so I waited until I plugged it back in to restart the bike as I am in the middle of a coolant flush. The first time it didnt start. So I disconnected the battery for a bit and retried. The bike goes through its normal buzz's and whistles, gauge and tach do normal pre start rituals. The second try the bike started right up and ran for about 45 seconds, everything seemed normal. I gave a couple baby revs, everything was fine. Then for no apparent reason it died. NOW it wont start at all. As I said battery is on a volt reader has plenty of juice to start the bike. Goes through all the normal pre start rituals. I have a feeling it has something to do with me disconnecting the gauge? But I really dont know, It seems like it never would of started if that was the case though. Whats the prognosis fellas??

Talking Back in Action

NEVERMIND! Bike is back in action. I must have done something the other day when I took off the tank and air box to adjust the return throttle. I took everything off and reinstalled it again. Bike started right up and seems to be good. Sorry!
