Washed friday, started and drove into garage.
Sat for the weekend and wont start Tuesday.
Kickstand, "choke", neutral, and kill switch all checked. The kill switch will prime the fuel pump when flipped. Bike turns over but will not catch. I will pull the battery and put it on the charger tonight just in case its just coincidentally low.
Will someone please give me the KISS list before i miss something incredibly easy?
I ended up giving it some gas while trying to start it and it finally ran for a second. I few more tries and it was running like normal. I've never had to touch the throttle when starting. I wonder if this is a sign of something beginning to fail.
I had this same scenario once when I first washed the '03. All systems were A-OK, cranked well, but it would not "catch." I held the throttle wide open, let her crank, and it started. Never had a problem with her since.
Normally, I never use throttle or the enrichment knob.
Still on the original battery in service since 02/04 and 62K+ on the clock.
