  1. Hey guys, I've used this forum before for tips etc. but never made an account but recently I was going up a hill (bike was at fairly high rpm) then it just cut out there was no funny sounds or anything coming from the engine so I pulled over and tried to start the bike again which failed. I then bump started the bike and it started but then as I was riding back I had to stop at a junction and it cut out again. I have checked my spark plug and it was fine but I replaced it anyway for an iridium one I now have no idea other than it being a fuel jet blocked or an air issue as to why it isn't starting even when I bump start it. I'd really appritiate any suggestions as want to sort it myself instead of taking it to a dealer and paying a ridiculous amount! Thanks, Jay

  2. Hey JayGriffR125, when you replaced the spark plug did you make sure your Ht lead was completely dry and also give a spray of WD40 ? i had similar problems to this a while back though mine did turn out to be a the fuel pump in the end so i replaced that myself quite easy with a new pump from eBay took about an hour or so and saved me a fortune :) . I'm not saying yours could be something as drastic as that though it could easily be just a wet socket or as you say a fuel jet blockage . hope you find the problem though .

  3. when you turn the key, can you hear the pump prime (whirling sound) ?
    sounds simple but check the HT lead is tight, check there are no exposed wires (could be wet)
    i have had the same issue 2/3 times now.
    1st - HT lead
    2nd - Spark plug
    3rd - wet electric (indicator) needed to bump first time after as the ECU would allow it to fire
