01 f4i wont start
Hey guys, been reading for a while and am glad to finally join you guys on SBW forums =)
Sad to say, my first post is one of desperation. However im faithful that you folks will give wise advice so ill make the *EDIT* short story long *EDIT* as to not leave out any possibilities.
My friend just bought a used f4i from a well known bike dealership. After we got it back to my place safely, i drove it around the corner (sigh) thats when the front tire bit a groove mid-u-turn and i ended up downing it on the sidewalk. It went down on the right side and shattered a section of the windshield.
Afterwards, the bike started up fine and i drove it back. I then let my friend sit on it as i talked him thru the basics (he has no prior riding experience and is his 1st bike). Somewhere during the instruction, while the bike was off it would no longer shift out of neutral, nor would it start.
So now, the bike is in neutral and does not start, when the bike is on and given a few seconds for the spedo to zero out, you hit the switch and it makes a rapid clicking noise, i believe its the starter. I do hear the whine of the fuel injector come on when the killswitch is flipped on, but still no start.
Obviously, my worst fear is that in my little spill i destroyed my good friends new (and 1st) bike =/
Any idea what could solve this issue? or what caused it? Any advice would be great, thanks!
