ok, help please! I think i flooded the 929 now it's not wanting to start!

I needed to fix my throttle, it was sticking a little! I went to start it, didn't notice that the throttle was fully open when I tried to start it! it started a little then died it! from what I have found, I have to pull the spark plugs out and let it sit for a few hours??? what a pain!!!!!!! can I just wait a little bit! guess who got some cable lube! guess I can put the new spark plugs in now may be thro in some 954 injectors, and throttle body's too! any way, there are no codes ect!

ps if I get the 954 throttle body's and injectors. would a pc3 make it a lot better??? or is it just so you can fine tune it? If I keep the bike all get a pc3 at some point! if it makes a huge diff all get one now!

didn't know you could flood a FI engine, but i just looked it up and yes, you can. learn something new every day. when i have flooded an engine in the past, waiting about an hour (sometimes less) has always got me back up and running. never removed a spark plug, although that would probably help it go faster.

I don't think you can flood an FI engine. I bet the OPs issue is a different kind of 'flooding' than what you see with carbed engines.
Unlike carb jets, injectors won't 'squirt' unless the engine is running because there is no mechanical linkage between the throttle and the injectors themselves.

google it. if you turn the engine over a long time and it doesn't start for some reason, you've just squirted a bunch of fuel into your cylinders. ie, flooded the engine. a spark plug wet with fuel does not spark. wait an hour, it will dry out, try again. or, don't.

I've done it a couple of times by switching the ignition on and off a few times while doing some electrical work (thus injectors firing a few shots when priming). I don't think it'll happen by holding the throttle open when pressing the start though.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

it could have been the cause to0, I think I did that as well! the throttle had been sitting there all day, wide open!!!
what did you do sky??? take the spark plugs out, wait a hour that's what I have read!

Just wait a bit. Might take a bit longer to start. Don't hold down the start button for more than 5 seconds or so at a time though.
