Stall and no start
On my third Fireblade 954>100RR (2011 stolen)> 954.
Had the current 954 for two years, today on a commute to work, stalled the bike and then it wouldn't start. After nearly an hour it did start and managed to ride to work.
My first blade had this problem twice. Weather conditions here in the UK were a bit damp. From searching forums and my own history I thought this was the rectifier. But reading around believe this could be the fuel line is touching something hot or the fuel pump itself. The bike is now 11 years old.
Where I have moved to it is something I need to rely on and the fact I've had the same problem on two different bikes concerns me. I've had Yamaha and Suzuki before, but I can't get the time to tear the bike to bits and I no longer have a garage.
Any thoughts on what this is? I'm contemplating upgrading back to a 2010 blade depending on insurance, but the power is really too much for road use. So also thinking about a GSXR750, point is both bikes are much newer and won't have much niggles. Don't get me wrong, for comfort and power balance, the 954 is probably one of the best of all time, but I need reliability.... And this is a Honda!
