929 won't crank

I'm trying to get a wrecked CBR 929 to run again. I'm trying to narrow down the possibilities.

1. the ignition - I ordered a key set for the bike, but recieved the key set from a 1998 CBR 900. (I got screwed.) It has the same wires, but a different plug. Will this ignition work with the computer on the 929 if I just match the wires up?

2. the ECU - Is there any way to see if the ECU is good? I'm trying to figure out what is bad, but without knowing what is good, I'm at a loss. I don't know of anyone else with this bike. If anyone lives around Memphis and would be willing to help, I would be gratefull and willing to compensate. Any help or sujestions on how to test the ECU w/o another bike?

3. the gauge cluster - Will the bike run with out it or not? I've heard that it will and I've heard it won't. Which is it?

I know that's a lot to answer, but I don't want to make multiple threads. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 929 won't crank

if it was wrecked there is a good chance the tip over sensor is unplugged, damaged, tilted.

Re: 929 won't crank

The bank-angle sensor has been by-passed. The ECU seems to be trying to start, other than turning on the fuel pump. I know the fuel pump is good. The ECU just won't ground out the relay to turn it on. I'm running out of ideas quickly.

Re: 929 won't crank

Ok, it cranked. It runs. I am now the proud owner of a running 929 motor. I had to hunt down a whole bunch of elecrical gremlins. I did find out some very useful information.

1. you DON'T need the gauge spedo/tach cluster for the bike to run.

2. The ignition off of a 1998 CBR 900 will work on a CBR 929.

3. Remote start is entirely possible on these bikes. (yes, I will draw up a diagram and directions to help you wire one up on your bike.)

4. This motor is amazing. The electrical...another story.

Thanks for everyone's help and as soon as I figure the easiest way to wire a remote start, I'll post it. (minus the info that will help a theif.)
