2000 Fireblade 929 power no spark?

I recently purchased a 2000 Cbr929 fireblade, from a dealership 5 days ago. And yesterday just after heading out on a ride no more than 2 miles up the road, i stop to put air in the rear tire ,, get ready to leave and nothing , It will not start. Got power , tried to turn over but seems there is no spark. This morning i checked the ignition fuse and it was fine. so i figured i would give it another try. this time i go to start it , and with clutch pulled in i push the start button , and the bike jerks forward. This does not happen in actual neutral , but in gear with the clutch engaged it jerks at the attempt of a start. yesterdy when it wouldn't start it wasn't doing the jerking action. anyone have some input?
thank you.

So the only way for it to crank over it has to be in gear

Re: 2000 Fireblade 929 power no spark?

Would this be a clutch switch issue ??

Re: 2000 Fireblade 929 power no spark?

Not intended to insult your intelligence, but when I first bought my superhawk I rode it to my gf's house and when I went to leave It would turn over and over but not start. After messing with it for 30 mins I realized that the engine stop/on switch had been turned off (by me) and as soon as I flipped it back to the "on" position the bike started. So.......you might want to double check that switch. I doubt your starting problem has something to do with your jerking problem but I'll think on it.

Re: 2000 Fireblade 929 power no spark?

So i had a club brother check it out ,, certified tech, and he's like i should have never puchased this bike. He pointed out several saftey issues and rigged components. the rear tire has gone flat 3 times in less than a week ,, failed to start twice and what seems to be a poor breaking system from pads to fluid ..... New question -- Any advice on the proper course of action in dealing with a dealership that's kicking out unsafe motorcycles to the public?

Thank you.

Go talk to them. Express your concern with the reliability of the bike. Did you run over a nail?
