2004 r6 won't start...

So I'm trying to diagnose the problem and i pulled the coil packs along with the spark plugs. i tried to start the bike and when grounding the spark plug on the frame there was no spark. i continued to do this with all 4 spark plugs and all of them had no spark. the battery is fully charged, so there is deff power. it seems strange all 4 spark plugs won't spark (all of them are the original stock). could it be something else that would be preventing the plugs from sparking????

Re: 2004 r6 won't start...

1) do you hear the fuel pump prime when you turn the key on?
2) are all the fuses in good shape

Re: 2004 r6 won't start...

Well first of all, I'll assume you're getting power to everything else (lights, horn, etc.)

The very first thing to do is to check the fuses for the ECU and ignition. There is also a fuse for the ignition coils. There are also a few sensors and switches that could be the culprit, such as the crank sensor. But start with the fuses and come back with an update.

It's obviously extremely unlikely that the ECU is bad, and exponentially unlikely that all four of your spark plugs are bad.

EDIT: Damn you guys are fast lol

Are you grounding to a unpainted surface?

Re: 2004 r6 won't start...

You need to take a step back and look at your troubleshooting steps.

There are circuits that have to be completed for the ECU to allow spark.

1. Sidestand switch
2. Neutral switch.

Either of these 2 switches will prevent spark. Check those first. Does your neutral light come on?

Not sure about the Clutch switch, but that might be a possible factor as well.

I just read that you recharged your battery and it's now not starting. Have you tried to bump start or jump start it?

The neutral switch is ok if the light is coming on. Sidestand switch is attached to your sidestand.
