Inj issue - I think
Hi, new poster to the forum but have been helped out by you guys plenty in the past.
I have a '13 650 ABS, I do 350+ miles a week, mainly motorway and it has nearly 50k on it.
I have had all the usual issues - headlight wiring, starter switch etc even had the stator rewound (just before the recall!!)
Went I did the stator/RR before (maybe 6mnths) I fitted a voltmeter so I could see the charge before it was too late, when I started on wed I noticed the charge was only at 12.5v, even when rev'd. I drove the car in and tested it that night.
In the eve the bike started normally and ran ok, my multimeter confirmed a lack of charge. I started the normal checks to find the fault, knowing I still had an outstanding recall on the stator. I checked the resistance across the 3 parts of the stator - all 0.5ohms.
I then checked the resistance between stator and engine case - only 0.6ohms..looks like stator shorting out?
Thought I'd just check the current from the stator to be sure, bike was very reluctant to fire (battery still good) when it did fire it cut out after a few seconds and refuses to restart.
Assuming I'd pulled a plug when moving the stator wiring I've stripped the tank and air box -- all plugs SEEM ok.
Fuel pump delivers 3sec of fuel to inj, plugs fire, if I put fuel into barrel of inlets it fires and runs till for a few secs, so got to be no fuel from inj?
I have the FI on after a few secs of cranking (will get code tonight, but guess will be c33 inj?)
Have yet to check inj but have looked at wiring diag and seems wiring goes straight back to ECM?
chances both inj wires faulty seems unlikely (everything else seems ok clocks sweep etc)
So could it be a sensor, which feeds the ECM info to open inj, wire failed??
Any info would really help !!
There seems to be lots of plugs in inaccessible places to check for green rot but any info on where to start would help.
The local dealer has ordered the recall stator but without the machine running I can't get it in to have it changed.
