Flooding 929

I am having trouble getting my 929 to start/stay running.

Here is the situation. I bought a 929 off my buddy 2 weeks ago that had been sitting in his garage for the last year. He did start it every so often just to "run it" to keep things lubed.

1. I bring it home change the oil and drain the gas and put new gas in and buy a new battery and charge it to full.
2. Once battery is good, I turn the key, fuel pump primes, hit the starter and it just cranks over and won't fire. This goes on for at least a week until I locate a plug wrench (bike didn't have one)
3. Tonight I pull the plugs they are wet and black, I then clean them with a lighter and wire brush. Put 'em in and hit the starter BAM fires right off for about 10 seconds then stalls hit the starter again and it wants to fire just doesn't quite catch.
4. Pull the plugs again clean but before I reinstall I hit the starter with a paper towel over the plug holes for couple seconds to maybe blow out any fuel in there. Put the plugs in and does the same thing just turns over and won't ignite .
Now here is the question, I just have the airbox sitting there without any rubber gaskets installed or the airbox screwed down, could this be the problem that it is getting to much air and the FI is sending to much fuel to compensate for the extra air?
Or are the plugs (NGK) just toast and I need new plugs plus the rubber gaskets around the airbox and seal it before I try to start with new plugs?

Sorry it's long just alot of info I wanted to get out to ya'll for some help.

Get new plugs. I fouled the plugs on my 929 and cleaning them didn't do squat. Replace your air filter too while you're in there.

Re: Flooding 929

Holy crap that was fast

Thats what I was thinking getting new plugs. So should the bike run without the airbox installed?

Re: Flooding 929

Yeah, it should definitely run for more than 10 seconds.

Oh, one more thing. Check the fast idle adjustment. It's the knob at the end of the wire on the left side below the seat.

Re: Flooding 929

Re: Flooding 929

I can't remember How many turns did you turn it? It shouldn't need much adjustment at all

Re: Flooding 929

Well, I'd say put the new plugs in and see what happens. If it's still acting up, adjust it a slightly the other way

Re: Flooding 929

I will get new plugs. But should it run fine without the airbox "sealed tight" or do I need to seal everything up then start it?

Re: Flooding 929

Hold on a second. Did you notice having to disconnect a sensor located in the top of your airbox (white in color, right side)? If you disconnect that sensor the bike may tend to run funny, if run at all. I'd buy new plugs regardless, but when testing, make sure you have this sensor plugged in.

Re: Flooding 929

Yes, the sensor was plugged in the 90% of the time.

that wasn't fast, that took 4 minutes. people musta been slacking that day.

I'm not really sure of this but I bet iridium tip plugs don't deal too well with a wire brush (they seem kinda picky anyway, they get ruined if you try to gap them)

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: Flooding 929

Any luck yet? Next time you try starting it, maybe jump it to a running vehicle. This has helped me with getting mine started several times. I know you just replaced the battery, but with it being cold, that little umph can help.

Re: Flooding 929

No not yet gotta order the plugs. (Stupid question gere) Jumping it from a car car won't hurt anything? I know it's 12V...
