Need help - an electrical gremlin has infested my 954
2003 954RR, I have about 21900 on the clock and it runs like a top! A little over a month ago I stopped to get fuel and when I turned the key back to the on position the pump failed to prime and headlight would not come on. First place to check was here and I found the common culprits such as the tip over sensor, relays, kill switch, etc. Checked all of those, swapped relays around, checked the kill switch, disconnected the ECU and next thing I know it starts up just fine. Rode the bike to work the next day and when I go to leave, she acts up again - same problem. I left it there overnight, tried it again the next day and still no signal to ignition. Starter works just fine, all indicators say FIRE, but something is disrupting the signal for spark. I put her on the trailer, brought her home and a few days later tried her again and she fired right up. Since then, about 20 successful starts. Rode to work and home yesterday, go out today and UGH, it's back! No signal for ignition! Obviously it's not the tip sensor, doubt it's a relay or I would "think" I would be getting more issues or it would have gone bad all the way by now (besides I did swap it out early on so that would mean 2 relays going bad??), kill switch was taken apart and cleaned - not a bit of corrosion in there. I'm really at a loss now as to what could be causing it to be so intermittent. Chasing this electrical gremlin down is a real PITA and I'm about to the point where I'm considering just parting it out for the bulk of the $ that she's worth (engine, frame, etc). Really love riding her but can't trust that she will restart every time I turn her off. Anyone ever experience this or have any clue/ideas of what could be causing it?
Also, before anyone asks, there is no Power Commander installed and I also removed my Scorpio alarm in case it was the culprit - which it apparently was not. And no codes, dash lights up like normal - just no fuel pump priming and the headlight doesn't come on when the gremlin rears it's ugly head.
