Alright troubleshooters, whip your 919 service manuals out
I'm in North Carolina on vacation, and was performing some basic maintenance for my 1k ride tomorrow. So I hop on, put the kickstand up, green neutral light is on, engine stop switch is in the correct position, and I push the start switch and...nothing. No noise, no click, no change in guages or indicators, nothing. Turn the key off, then on, toggle the engine kill switch, hit start button...nothing. This time I notice that the fuel reserve light flashes several times then goes off (I have plenty of fuel left in the tank). Try this sequence again, and each time the fuel reserve light either flashes several times, or once and turns off. Eventually, I hold down the starter button and several seconds later, the bike starts and runs normally.
The 919 owner's manual doesn't say anything helpful, and my service manual is at home in Missouri.
This does not leave a warm fuzzy feeling in my gut for tomorrows long haul. Any ideas? Service manual say anything about a flashing fuel light?
For all the "bulletproofness" of Honda, mine sure seems finicky at times.
My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.
