Are the guages sweeping? Any lights or other things not normal? Can you hear the fuel pump wine when you turn the key?
Yes, No, yes.
Everything looks and sounds normal. That's what is so puzzling.
I had another weird thing happen the night before I left for the rally.
I was moving the bike, walking beside it with it at an idle, when all of the sudden there was a loud pop. Then it started running really rough. I took the tank off and LONG story short
I found that one of the intakes (?) from the air box to the head had SOMEHOW popped out of the rubber boot on the airbox. It was of course, sucking in WAY to much oxygen and thus running real bad. I re-seated the intake into the rubber boot. The clamp was tight, I have NO idea how that thing popped out
Anyway, after reseating it and retighening the clamp and re-assembling the bike, it started and ran fine for 1004 miles.
Now, as I say, it won't even fire!
