So i am relatively new here (posting) and recently bought my own 02 919. i bought it from a guy who had recently crashed it and his wife told him he needs to get rid of it.
The bike is in literately good condition and since i got it, i have been fixing it up (Exhaust, radiator, handles etc...) but there was one catch which im only realizing now how much of a pain it is.
The bike never came with a key... It was apparently lost after the crash when the bike was towed to the lot. So when i got the bike, the guy told me i just need a new key and i will be good. Now momma didn teach me to be a patient man, so long story short, the bike wont start and i need assistance if possible.
So i though, joining the two red cables coming from the key cylinder to the main wiring loom, if i just cut them and join them, i close the "key" circuit and bobs your aunty, the bike should start. I was wrong...
So the bike powers on, lights and horn work. Hit the start button, Bike turns over, but no pump prime at all. Check the pump by grounding black/brown wire in the 2nd relay, pump primes.
Next i check the plugs, no spark on any of the cylinders. nothing. I check the coil and resistance appears good.
My suspicion is the bike thinks its being stolen and wont start. Is there a way to bypass this and "brute force" a start out of the little critter? seems to be an ECU issue
