    Total blind guess here, but is it possible to get water into the gas tank? Water is heavier than gasoline, and would sink to the bottom of the frame where the pump sits. Maybe drain out current gas...

    All the above, and also:

    Most likely it's something electrical that is keeping your bike from just plain starting. Think fuses, relays, wires, grounds.

    Nope, I got lucky and was able to very carefully drill it freehand. I did the initial center punch, then series of increasing drill bits.
    You should be good with the Jim's kit.

    When you say the engine won't turn, do you even hear the starter working? Can you spin the engine by hand, to make sure it's not seized?

    There may be a bunch of other things to check, but I...

    I just went through the same headache myself. It was on the front exhaust, but rear stud which made for really tight quarters.

    I'm just taking my old Suzuki, just to take it easy on my first time out.

    Gotta ask why it was a salvage title. These bikes don't have any big expensive fairings to crack. So no dents on the frame or exhaust pipe? Check the tabs on the steerer tube - a bend here...

    I had to remove my rear wheel recently without the official Buell tool.. You definitely have to get creative.

    So to clarify those pictures above - either find yourself a long 7/8" coupling nut,...

    After doing the above, consider getting the Buelltooth diagnostic tool to plug into your ECM.

    You can then check if the bike has the correct on/off temperature parameters for the fan, and also do...

    Yeah, drooling over that photo was what started this whole adventure! :eagerness:

    Are you getting any CEL's? Do you have Buelltooth to get an error codes? Or jump the wire the old fashioned way?

    Here are some guesses - Bike running too hot? Can you measure cylinder temps? ...

    What exactly are we looking at? Is that the O2 sensor from the top down? If it's on the right side of the bike, there's always the danger of it getting caught in the belt drive which could do...

    Dang, Cooter. Your "10 minute job" was more like a 3 hour ordeal for me. Mostly because I didn't realize you could drop the swingarm far enough without removing the rear wheel. Which meant...

    But if someone cut off that sidestand switch and wired it up higher, where does it ultimately lead to? Somewhere up by the handlebar, or towards the ECU in the back?
