Hi I am a car mechanic who bought first bike. It's a 1999 Daytona 955i it sounds great feels healthly besides a slight low end hesitation up till 4k rpm and smells rich. It runs fine no overheating or funny sounds. I rode it for 4hrs without any issues till I turned it off it wont start till 30-60min have passed n is cold again. Cranks just fine just no start. If I give it some throttle it will kinda start then I start again with lil more gas and. Boom on again. Just changed plugs and oil I got no idea what to do from here all vacuum lines have been changed but no luck on it starting when warm
No check engine light , 91 octane gas
Well I just discovered I can get it to turn on when at operating temp. By giving some throttle maybe on the 2nd or 3rd itll start , that's latest update. is there any way to test the crank sensor. Would a bad crank sensor cause it to run rich give slight power hesitation at lower rpms ?
And your right on the fuel pump/regulator. I only thought maybe it wasn't providing enough pressure to start the bike when hot but yet I can start it with more throttle. I can post a video a little later I'm planning on going for a ride
Last question. Wouldn't that crank sensor cause it to not turn on at all ? Maybe running rough ? At least that's what I would expect in a car
Do these bikes use 87 or 91 octane. ?
I have managed to get it to turn on while hot couple times in a row by giving it some throttle as I press the start button I will upload video shortly
Lol well I got a cold start video since its night right now it actually back stabbed me and turned right on after I shut it off ....soo tomorrow during the day I'll ride it and shoot a video again XD. this is the YouTube link.
Finally got a chance to catch the bike slipping. Lol. So this is a video fresh after I did a 2hr ride on first try it actually started right up because it was cold out I noticed itll start on cold weather.
And finally on the 2nd attempt to start it didn't start. This is part 2 of the other link I just posted . I attempted to turn it on by playing with throttle but no luck since I was recording. You can hear it kinda wanting to turn on as I use a bit of throttle after 2nd or 3rd start
