Electrical/starting help needed
I've been having issues since I performed valve checks and installed new injectors + PAIR plates. First the bike wouldn't start, it was just clicking. I replaced the battery and while it will start now, I'm still having issues.
Here's an example of what happens:
Turn ignition to Run, gauges sweep, fuel pump primes. Press starter button, absolutely nothing happens; no noise at all, nothing. Wait a second and press it again, starter engages and engine turns over but doesn't start. It slows as I hold the button in and once I let go I get a second sweep of the gauges/pump priming. At this point the clock and trip meter have reset as if the battery had been disconnected. If I press the button a third time the engine will often start after a second or two of cranking, if not on the third try it will start on the fourth or fifth.
This isn't the rule, but neither is it the exception; occasionally it will fire up on the first or second try, but it has done what I described above multiple times. I'm pretty sure the battery is fine; it gives good readings and I left my grip heaters on for about an hour after parking the other night and she started up just fine the next day. In fact when it does take multiple attempts to start it seems to crank better/faster on the subsequent tries, as opposed to losing power.
Any ideas on what to check? I imagine it's a poor connection somewhere, maybe a ground, but where would it be that it's affecting the starter/ignition as well as the gauges? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
