Daytona 600 won't start

Hi Everyone, I purchased a 2004 Daytona 600 last fall. Love the bike and it was running great when I parked it for the winter. This spring I popped a new battery in there and she won't start for me. When I turn th ignition on I hear the fuel pump prime and then a series of buzzes that I believe is coming from the left side of the bike just underneath the air box. I have seen a few other people with similar issues across the web but haven't been able to find a post where they found the answer. I will be taking her to the shop next week if I can't figure it out. I am slightly mechanically inclined but don't know that much about bikes. Thanks for any insight!

1. Is it out of gear
2. Turn the kill switch off
3. Turn ignition on
4. Pull in clutch while starting

Yep, I did all of those things, the bike will turn over but won't pop at all, I think it has to do with an actuator or sensor or something that is just below the air box on the left side. I'm wondering if anyone can confirm what that part is and, if it is failing, would it cause what I am describing.

It's a small piston that seems like it's trying to move up and down. Based on the diagram I'm assuming it's the "stepper motor assembly".

When I first turn the ignition on I hear the fuel filter prime and the the part I am describing buzzes repeatedly. Sometimes it stops at four buzzes, sometimes it does more than that.

Dumb question - is the battery fully charged?

It's a squid thing. You wouldn't understand.

Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

Yep, bought a brand new one and charged it up this spring.

I'm gonna try to get it into the shop tomorrow. Hopefully they can figure it out. I'm much better with the carbureted bikes than these fuel injected ones

Is the fuel pump actually pumping fuel?? Have you disconnected it from the rail and test.

Next if it is pumping fuel is it at the correct pressure??

Another thought is to check for a clogged up fuel filter.

Ok, so I took it into the shop and it turns out it was a faulty fuel pump. It's very difficult to test the fuel pump on this bike because it's inside the fuel tank. Apparently it is also very expensive. Good luck out there to anyone who is having similar issues

The fuel pump not hard to test at all... i mentioned it 3 posts up.. just disconmect it from the fuel rail and turn the bike on. If it works fuel will come out.. easy..

How much did you get charged for a new one???

Well its fix now enjoy it..

The fuel pump on that bike is in the fuel tank so it is a little more complicated but yes, I probably could have tested it
