I don't know. I don't have the book on this bike yet. Sounds like it could be a loose wire somewhere like the coils. Check for fire at the plugs. You are saying the engine turns over but does not start right ?
Did you read my reply here??whatever it is, kickstand, or N switch.. why is it cranking .. is my question
thanks for the posts guys, and letting me vent a bit...
i suppose you are right... i have been just extremely lucky with my vehicles... and took it for granted.
the issue is now... it is not happening all the time.... today, it never happened once.
my nearest dealer is 140 miles one way... and the weather now is a little too cold for that long of a trip on the bike.. i will most likely just haul it in the back of my pickup...
thanks for the feedback guys
So it's not a HONDA problem?My buddy got the EXACT same problem with his ninja 300 last year.
Wouldn't start with the kickstand down (while in Neutral).
Very annoying if u like to run your bike for a few minutes while you gear up.
Kickstart up and it fired right up.
After a wash or when he drove trough the rain it sometimes worked again.
Turned out it was a loose wire on the kickstart switch.
I'd recommend U take it to the dealer and let them fix it. And test it a few times when u collect it.
