Cranks, but no Start, New plugs.

Well, I rode my 2008 last week with no issues. Had to go TDY to Alabama for a week. Come back and it cranks but doesn't start. I replaced the Battery, Plugs, and checked the tip over sensor. I also checked all the fuses and relays. Oh and it isn't throwing any codes. Next will be to drain the fuel and replace it in the tank. Anyone have any other ideas. I have done a few searches and have hit a wall.

Is the stop switch on?

I'm the most brutal and vicious and most ruthless champion there's ever been. There's no one that can stop me. My style is impetuous, my defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious I want your heart, I wanna eat your children.

Yes, I forgot to post that in the original post. It seems to be priming just as strong as before.

If I can't figure this one out, it'll be a week before the dealership can even get it in. Guess they are really busy this time of year.

had the same thing over winter, turns out it was just a low battery (thought the trickle charger was on and it wasn't), even though the cranking sounded fine. You said you replaced the battery, sounds dumb but just making sure its fully charged?

You said the pump primes, do you actually havefuel pressure? becareful, if you disconnect the quick-connect, and prime the pump (turn the key on), fuel will spray, sounds dumb, but easily done when your in the middle of things. Guilty.

you replaced the plugs, but are you actually getting spark? I bet it something really simple.

Don't be a road crayon, pavement does not care how cool you think you look in a t-shirt and shorts.

Ok, made sure that the new battery had a full charge, I still hear the fuel pump prime, have the new spark plugs installed but not 100% sure that I am getting spark. Just won't start.
