919 won't start after maintenance
Hello, I'm new to WristTwisters.
I purchased a 2007 Honda 919 right after Thanksgiving. Love the bike. I've ridden it only a dozen times since, because of weather. I spent a recent Saturday performing routine maintenance, changing oil, oil filter, blowing out air filter, check plugs, etc. I also added some mods to it at that time. Added mirror extensions, handlebar risers, windshield and sliders. I also installed the leads to the battery to allow easy connection to a charger. Everything went fine and I was proud that I accomplished so much . . . until I tried to start it. It would turn over but never start. The F1 light blinked nine times. The manual said that this meant the IAT sensor was bad. I figured I must have clipped it when checking the air filter so I ordered a replacement.
I put the replacement in today. Got the exact same response. Engine turns over, but doesn't start. Same effect as if it had no gas. If I let it turn over long enough, the F1 light starts blinking nine times again. I no longer believe its lies.
I'm stumped. What simple thing could I have done that has created this problem? Short of sacrificing virgin armadillos on a BBQ alter to rid the bike of the evil spirits, what suggestions do any of you have to track down my problem?
