Default 1st post is the best!!

ok so I got my bike about a month ago and it wasn't running, well through all the hard work and waiting..i finally got all my parts through ebay, parts include, new battery, new airbox, new ECU computer. I just put them all on today and everything fit perfect, now heres the problem. The bike is turning..just not turning over, and im in no way mad about that. hell im just happy im getting power..but if anyone knows what could be stopping the the bike from turning over..let me know..thanks ya'll

Why is it that when someone mentions their fuel pump not priming that everyone immediately jumps to "bypass your BAS." I'm sorry... but the last thing you want to do when troubleshooting is jump to a conclusion and start bypassing safeties.

Check your killswitch... Check the main harness under the left side fairing.
