i had pulled my exhaust off to replace it with the laser setup i bought....but im waiting on the shipment of my cat eliminator so i started putting back the stock exhaust on as i need to use the bike before then. I started the bike up this morning with no exhaust, started up no problem, revved no problem. i also started it with the cat on , still no problems. i went to bolt the muffler on but couldnt get it lined up properly so i left it alone. my roomate put the muffler on correctly and tightened it, and now the bike cranks but wont start.

any clues?

im not at home but my roomate says there is an "E" on the display , half a tank of gas. bike has NEVER had any problems starting. its an 04 fz6 with around 8k miles

is it possible that the computer just needs to be reset somehow?

E might mean your electronic tach. Is it possible the killswitch button is clicked to off? (the red button above your starter button)?

(always try the simplest things first)

Does your room mate know he has to turn the key and let the fuel system pressurize before he hits the start button?

Maybe its a good thing your roommate cannot turn on your bike. If I had a dollar for every roommate that crashed a bike......

it could be the electronic tach...i never noticed that it showed an E. but it does show a 0 on the right side and since the bike isnt running that would make sense

im at home now and tried to start it, same problems, it cranks but no fire

make sure the red button above your starter is clicked to on.

When you have the numerical display set to the tach it should have an E before it. At least mine has since day one.

if the killswitch was set to 'off' the bike wouldnt even crank, it would do nothing at all ....

anyway i just got it started, just checked all connections, gave it alittle gas while cranking it, revved it a bit and it started, idled and will now start on demand

Thats funny, because my bike will crank with the kill switch off.

It does have fuel, right?

Was your tank lifted at all? Maybe you've got a kinked hose somewhere.
