2006 600 k7 not starting
So as the title says, bike doesn't start.
My bike had an oil leak from the water pump about a year ago. I fixed that after checking videos and forums. Was perfect afterwards. So with that done, I kept riding and all was fine. However, a few months ago, my bike started over heating. I followed every guide I could regarding refilling the radiator, mixtures and all of that. I did everything as specified but it seems my bike had a different issue.
The water kept boiling out from the reservoir. Eventually I parked her since this was just going to damage the engine. So my expectation is the water pump once again. I removed the thermostat but that however didn't make a difference. Instead of running cold for long, it still heats up quickly and gets way too hot if I stop riding, and I mean hot.
So I stripped off the fairings, drained the oil and water, removed the water pump and found that there's nothing wrong. The shaft turns as it should. It turns smoothly with a little resistance. If I pull on it, I can feel the oil seal holding that sucker very well in place. So I just replaced the housing seal and the o ring since I bought all the seals so might as well use them.
Mechanical seal and that other white and black seal I left out since removing the oil seal means having to use the heat gun to actually melt it. Also replaced the thermostat. So seems great, doesn't it? Well guess not. I have to remove the tank in order to get to the thermostat. I replaced the tank, the two pipes fitting into the tank and plugged the fuel pump back in with it's connector.
Reconnected the battery and switched her on. Now this is where my problems are starting. The oil and water has also been refilled by the way. So my secondary butterfly thingy on the side of the intakes has been disabled since the gears inside that thing are shot. So usually it just does the priming, push the button and immediate start.
Now I turn the key on and it only "half" primes. It doesn't go through the whole process. When I swing, the swings like made but doesn't start. It almost sounds like there's just little hint of wanting to start but nothing. Bike is in neutral, on a bike stand with the side stand up. So in my experience, should start immediately, but nothing!
So I read up and saw there are a lot of things I have to look at and this is going to probably take me a while since i'm no expert with this. But as for why not starting and overheating issue, anyone have any ideas?
Also, there's no water in the oil either. So don't know if that is the head gasket or not. I'm out of ideas and fed up to be honest. I've been without my bike for almost four months and I have no idea what to do anymore and I don't have the money to send it in to the dealership. That is just going to be insane.
Also, I didn't mess with the electrical stuff. Except for changing fuses.
Actually, mentioning fuses. I did check the fuses and found one, the high beam fuse, was blown so replaced it. But as I was checking them, removing the fuel pump fuses and replacing it, even with the bike off, the dials still go through the prime process. The needle runs to the end and back again. No idea if that means anything or not.
If you would like to see what happens, I can make a video and link it here during the weekend or so. Let me know.
