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.
