    Cafe Racer not starting

    After I made about 200km trip with my bike and stopped, it didnt start. First I put it off for hot start problem wich i havent experienced before. But after night it still dindnt start. I charched the battery and still nothing. Last year i changed the starter solenoid. Engine turns great after charge, fuel pump makes the normal noise after I put it in ignition. But it wont simply start.

    I don’t think it would be the kill switch because it would not turn the meters on when putting on ignition.
    Mine has turned on without the clutch pulled in.
    And sidestand switch will turn the bike off only when putting it to gear.

    Try the crank sensor switch ... as you sit on the bike right hand side on the clutch casing ... mine was dirty and stopped my 1130 from firing and starting .. unplug, clean put back and off she went ... worth a try

    Don't discount the side stand switch. It may still turn the bike over and start ... But then stop ect . I know it happened to me several times a day this year on my trip to Germany . I had to take it apart and tweak the small spring inside .

    It happened to me, in my case it was the fuel pump, I would check it.

    I cleaned the crank sensor, checked the killswitch, checked the sparkplugs, and did try to start with the side stand on it place. With the sidestand it didnt even crank when it was on the ground. Maybe i will go and buy a fuel pressure meter and check if there comes pressure on the fuel rail.

    Did you check the fuel pressure? I am having similar issues and ran a pressure test only getting 18 PSI so fuel pump or not enough power to the pump. Are fuel pumps known to fail, but only partially, priming, but not producing enough pressure?

    Propably now I have to check because the problem is now narrowed down to be fuel related cause with ignition spray it will try to start even littlebit. And also when I am checking the intake manifold there is nothing coming in it. So the problem is in injectors, fuel pump, injection ecu, or is there a relay for injectors? In workshop manual there is six relays and one of them is injection relay, but in mine there is only five relays.
