I tried to start the Strom today and it didn't want to go. It just cranked over great but no fire. I tried this three times for about 15 seconds each. On the fourth try I blipped the throttle a tad and it fired right up and ran for the morning commute just fine and for the return trip also. Being fuel injected I didn't think blipping the throttle would be necessary.

Any ideas? Bike was started two days before without a problem. Probably nothing to worry about?

I wouldn't worry about it. If the same thing happens again and frequently, you got a problem. Could be a one time thing, something to do with position of the planets and stars. Ride on.

Zero throttle is the norm. If the engine turns over and doesn't start for some reason though or if a lot of vapor gets into the system on a hot day, the excess gas needs more air to get the mixture right. Opening the throttle will do that.

Mine did that recently. I washed it, parked in the garage where it sat for 3 days. When I went for a ride it cranked but no fire. On the second try I opened the throttle and it fired right up.

I attributed the problem to water in the switchgear. But who knows. Probably is the tipover switch or some other sensor.
