Hi all,

Just finished putting my bike back together after getting the frame back from having a little repair sorted.

I'm pretty sure everything is connected back together correctly!

When I press the starter, the engine turns over on the starter motor, but it doesn't start.

You can hear the fuel pump prime when turning the ignition on, but when I use a spark plug tester (or hold the plug against the engine) there's no spark on either plug.

The coil is plugged in with the three-pin connector to the loom. The 15A fuse 'E' is okay.

Any suggestions?
Cheers,
Andy

The tip-over switch is one of the things I hadn't disturbed.

I just took it off and reconnected it, it 'sounds like' it's working when you shake it.
Would the starter motor turn over the engine if the tip-over switch was 'on'?
The fuel pump is priming too - I didn't think it would if the T/O switch was in 'fallen over' mode.

Cheers,
Andy

A bit of an update:

Using my multimeter I get good readings from the crank sensor (mine has two pins) - 0.88 ohms on the winding and 2V AC when turning over on the starter motor.

I couldn't find my test lamp to test the camshaft sensor.

For a moment I thought I'd connected the crank sensor and coolant temp sensor the wrong way round (the connectors are identical) but the wiring diagram colours match up correctly.

Any ideas what I can try next?

Cheers,
Andy

Thanks for the pointer mate - I eventually tracked down the fault - your suggestion is the closest, there was a break in the loom of the orange/green wire from the cam sensor back to the ECU. I spent two hours testing sensors and wire continuity before I found the fault.

Cheers!
Andy
