    Don is it a virage I or TXI? Freedom?

    Have you tried disconnecting the tps and starting it? Check fuel pressure while it won't start?

    Disregard disconncting the tps then.
    When it won't fire, have you checked for spark? You say The display shows 11.something volts when cranking, you need to check volts with a meter.

    Do you have spark?

    Unplug one of the spark plug wires, connect a spare spark plug, and ground the spark plug body to the cylinder head bare metal. Does it spark when you crank the engine?

    Do you have a bilge button on the handlebar?
    Press and hold it down. Does the bilge pump run?

    While holding the bilge button, try starting the engine.

    Ok I have 11.6 or more when cranking when I check with meter on red/purple wire. I do not appear to have spark.

    Yes.

    If you still don't have spark, disconnect the black/yellow wire from the stop switch, and try again.
