06 Brutale Won't Start
I put new spark plugs in my Brutale and have everything put back together but I can't get it started. It turns over but acts like there is no fuel getting to the intake. I double checked connections and fuses. The fuel pump is running, I can hear it and see the fuel moving around. When the power commander 3 powers up it goes thru a sequence then the - FUEL (negative fuel) led stays. I don't really know the inner workings of the PC3 but it tells me no fuel is present to start the bike or the + FUEL led would be on. I pulled the number 4 spark plug and it was dry but the center electrode looks like it some carbon on it, meaning the spark plugs were firing. I tried turning the key and leaving it on to see if the system would pressurize but it does not make any difference.
If anyone has any suggestions let me know. I was think if there was a way to "prime" the injectors maybe it would start. When I stored it last winter I drain all the gas out because I thought I might replace the gas fittings but with summer weather in March " I just want to ride". I don't know if it would be smart or safe to pour a small amount of gas in throttle body to see if it would start. Any help would be appreciated. Marty
