Hi there. 2004 TC just hit 10K miles, and my brother bought it with 7K miles about 4 years ago. It had the 'stage 1' when purchased, with the K&N filter, and the loud pipes. Don't know if the ECU is different or not. Bike had everything replaced 1K miles ago: spark plugs, all fluids (including brake fluid), new tires, everything lubed and adjusted, and was running perfectly. Tried to fire it up today, after sitting in the garage for the weekend, and absolutely no sign of firing up. Cranks fine, but no fire. No sense in burning the starter. Checked relays and fuses, and all fine. Checked all connectors and fine too. Everything sounds normal prior to cranking the engine, meaning fuel pump is priming, etc.
I'd greatly appreciate any help. I'd like to start with a service manual to see if there's a troubleshooting guide for this symptom. And my first question is where can I find a .pdf one? It must be available for free by now, no?
Second question is if there's a known issue with these bikes that could be causing this. Since bike was perfect 2 days ago, I'm eliminating the injectors and coils. Therefore, my money is on the ECU or a critical engine sensor. I'm going to call the 2 local dealers to see if it's possible to just check the ECU by itself, since I don't want to spend a ton on having to flat-bed the bike, and be at their mercy on troubleshooting charges. If one of the critical sensors is bad, a hard code shouldn't be erased, and dealer would be able to read it, right? All comments and advice welcome. Would like to tackle this issue myself first. Thank you folks.
