Won't start

Well i was all geared up for my first proper ride of the season and the **** thing won't start. It has full battery and cranks over fast enough but just won't start. Anyone else had this? Turn the key on and it goes though all the checks and the needles sweep before i try.

Maybe a weird question but are you sure you've put your side stand up and the bike is in neutral?

Yes you could have caused the fuel line couplers to disconnect. Easy to do. They can come off if you put a strain on the fuel lines, or don't push them home properly when reconnecting them.


Should be an easy fix if this is what the problem is.

Yes sorted thanks BD. I had lifted the tank to sort out the indicator wiring that the previous owner had tojjed together. I thought all was ok but one of the fuel lines was very slightly adrift.?
