929 not starting help...

So I have a 2001 929, stock except for baffle fix, air filter, and pipe. It has 30k on it. Recently I started having to put it on a charger every night to ensure it would start. Now even with a jump start it won't start. Cranks good but fuel pump not kicking on....ideas please?

If it's a problem that's gotten worse over time then perhaps the fuel pump has died.
Do you use the kill switch regularly?

Yes I do use the kill switch, every time I shut down.

Don't, it's not designed for that.
My guess is you need a new kill switch.

Re: 929 not starting help...

Is it possible that the heavy humidity got in under the switch and is preventing pump start up?

If it's very worn I guess that wouldn't help.
Bypass the switch to confirm it is actually the problem.
