Hi all,
I went to start my engine and it's not turning over at all - nothing happens at all! The dash and headlights come on as normal after turning the key and I've fully charged and checked the battery by bypassing. I've checked all the fuses, including main fuse and no luck there. I've also taken apart the starter switch and all connections seem to be working fine and are well lubed up.
Admittedly I have left it for just over a month in the cold garage while I was abroad, with very little fuel in it, but have since topped it up. I find it hard to believe that the fuel line could be clogged given how new the bike is.

Any idea what else could be wrong? I'm keen to sort myself if possible and unfortunately I no longer have the Yamaha assist (expired last month!). Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

With my Honda CB750 out also, I'm at a loss for things to keep me away from the family!

Thanks in advance!

Chris

Don't think it can be cos the bike is in neutral so should always start regardless of side stand down, right? Unless my memory is failing me from 2 months of riding **** asian bikes!
Thanks for the suggestion though.

If it's not turning over at all, it definitely sounds electrical rather than fuel related. On most bikes I'd suspect the kill switch had been activated accidently but this isn't possible with the XSR set up. I'd look at the side stand switch, as nightic suggests. Even if it's in neutral, a malfunction here could still operate the engine cut out. There's a lot of salt, crud and water on the roads at the moment which could fester nicely during a month or so in a cosy garage! Give all your switches and connections a good squirt of WD40. Let us know the culprit when you find it.
