03 cb919 wont start, need help!!!

The bike has been acting funny recently... 2 times in the last month I was riding the bike and it just died on me. The first time I pulled over, sat with the key on and rocked back and forth on the bike (the oil and fi lights were on) after a couple minutes sitting and cycling the key a couple times the fuel pump primed and bike ran fine. The 2nd time I pulled over, kicked it into neutral and it fired right up. Its ran fine since then. Oil level is good, was changed less than 1k miles ago, coolant is full, etc. Yesterday I went to start it, I turned the key on, all the lights came on but the pump wouldn't run and the bike wont crank (headlight goes out when I push the start button). I checked all of the fuses, I bypassed the bank angle sensor by putting a paperclip between the white (or yellow) and red wire, when I do this I can push the start button and the fuel pump will prime but the bike wont crank. When it was running correctly the fi light would go out after the system had pressure. I don't know what else to check or where to start. Does anyone have any advice?

Check your battery. Seems to be the largest cause of such issues.

Battery is fully charged, even tried it with the charger on the battery.

Check for a loose battery cable some times when you activate the starter if there is loose wire the arc of the current pushes the wires apart that's why you have to make sure the cables on the battery are tight.

Kick stand switch?

There are bold motorcyclists and old motorcyclists, but (OK) there are few old bold motorcyclists

Found it, if the kill switch isnt making contact the fuel pump will not activate when the key is turned on, starter wont engage, etc... For anyone having this problem check the wire harness behind the headlight, when the kill switch is in the run position it should have continuity between the white/black wire and the solid black wire. If not, jump with a paperclip and go from there!

Yet another kill switch failure from Honda. Do yourself a favor: only use the kill switch in emergencies! Otherwise, use the key or the side stand switch.

+1 I never use the kill switch. I vote to just use the key. The side stand switch just gives me another opportunity to forget to turn off the key and run the battery down.
