Not Starting

I'm having a problem starting my bike. Was out for a 20 mile run a few days ago, where everything was fine. Went to start it today, and the engine won't take hold.
I put in a fully charged battery, and it still won't fire up.
I checked the fuses, checked that there is spark on all 4 plugs.
The plugs looked fine, but I changed them anyway.
The fuel pump is kicking in.
Would you see fuel being sprayed into the carbs with the airbox removed?

I also found this while I was having a look around.
Would this have anything to with not starting?

Would anyone have the part number, or a link to the part number of this hose? It goes from the engine to the airbox. (breather pipe I think)

I used to have a manual with all the part No.s , can't find it though.

It turns over but does not catch?

You would not see fuel being sprayed.

Sounds like the same issue I'm having, except mine died riding down the interstate. Won't fire up either and I've checked everything you've checked as well. Changed the spark plugs, tested the fuel pump and checked all the fuses. Next I plan to test the power relay. Hoping I figure it out soon. Miss riding. I'll let you know if I do.

Just constant turning over.
I found the manual for the part No's and I thought the number for this pipe was 800092251. Might be different manuals.
Have to phone the dealers.

How do you replace an led?
While I was having a look around for looses wires, noticed that the led for my alarm is nearly broken off and not working.

You have an alarm?

That's my guess for what your problem is. I would remove the alarm entirely and see if that solves your problem.

I wouldn't know where to start.
I think I'll get it looked at.
Funny you should say that.
This switch under the seat is not working either. How do you test this?

Got the new breather hose ordered today though.

As that switch is part of your alarm system, it's almost certainly that which is cutting out the ignition.
Stripping out the alarm is a simple job but needs someone with some experience, as there are
so may different permutations to how it has been fitted. I take them off bikes all the time and
every fitter seems to have their own view on how to hook them up.

As my bike did the same thing recently only after 1500 miles, it was the fuel line in the gas tank popping off the fuel pump YOU SHOULD CHECK THIS>!

May you live as long as you want, but not want as long as you live

Check what?
There's no link.

Is it a straight forward job to change the fuel filter?
What do I need before I get started?

You should be able to see the fuel hose that he is refering to through the fuel cap area look into tank with torch see any bubbles etc. To get at the fuel pump you must remove the tank & remove the bolts at the pump area to remove pump there is also a drain plug in bottom of tank to drain fuel to change fuel filter you will have to remove pump anyway so check hoses at same time.
Hope that helps
