My 919 isn't starting, WTF?
Ok, here's the problem. Last weekend I did the taillight integrator mod (not clearalternatives, the trailer hitch one), the bafflectomy, and flapper disconnect. After doing the tail and flapper, bike ran great. Then I did the bafflectomy and the bike started for 3 seconds and turned off. Confused, I tried charging it. Next day I plug it back in and try to start the bike. I hear the started motor going then a backfire like pop or two and it doesn't start. So I take battery to dealership to have them charge/check it. They confirm it's got a few bad cells, which doesn't suprise me because I had a similar problem where my bike wouldn't start because of the battery a few months back (bike was a new 04 leftover and had been sitting for a while). Today I borrowed my friend's battery and tried to start it only to have it do the backfire thing again. So I took off the rear cowl and checked my wiring for the tail only to find nothing....checked the fuses to find nothing...any thoughts on WTF is wrong with my bike? It only has 1400 miles on it too.... PLEASE HELP!
