My boy had a low speed high side on Sat. Now the thing won't kick over. When you turn the key to the on position everything is normal except you can't hear the whine that the fuel injection used to make. When you hit the start button it tries to kick over like normal but never starts. Any ideas?

Favorite thing on my bike: the miles I put on it

yeah thats probably your answer. theres a metal ball in there surrounded by a metal ring and filled with some type of fluid. once the ball hits the ring it cuts off starting the bike. its a little black box underneath the tail section. mines in front of the lock for the trunk. just give it a good tap a couple times and try starting the bike again.

Just for the hell of it you might want to check fuses/wiring too. You never know. I don't think it's the lean angle/tipover switch. Thought those cut ignition like the kill switch. Sounds like the motor's just not getting gas. Bike might have hit hard enough to jar loose any plugs that weren't connected properly, like FI power stuff under your tank. Just a thought. I might be wrong about the tipover switch too. Guys?

I spent like a month trying to fix my F4i...till I realized it was the bank angle sensor.
Went thru the entire system with a voltage meter...some how skipping the bank angle sensor...never noticed it was gone with the head lights.
I am just that stupid.

if it is not the sensor it could be your fuel pump. I have an extra on here for an F4i (I was sooooooooo confident that was the problem).

Anyway - $75 for the fuel pump (that you probably do not need, like I did not).
