    Gp1200r everything checks good, but wont turn over

    Just got the engine and all reinstalled yesterday. I turned over a couple times and all was well. Was about to check check compression and now it won't do anything. Meter is working and so is that loud ass buzzer, flashes light, oil and fuel. As I hit the start switch the light flickers with each push, so guessing the start switch is good. Relay has been tested, good. fuses good. Starter is good. It was working one min, not the next . . . .

    It will turn over if I jump the relay together. Otherwise doesn't make a sound. Turns over fine by hand.

    I don't know much else to check, any ideas ?

    THANKS!

    Ok, so I checked the cat temp chip, I hit the start button, attempted to turn over. Would a lose connection or bad chip cause it to act like this ? If so, anyone got any, read possible to make one ?

    It won't turn over if that cat sensor is unplugged/loose and same for the exhaust temp sensor farther down by the mid wall. Check both and make sure they are connected good or you have a chip in place if you have a d-plate.

    Great, that answers that part of the problem! I found the sticky on the DIY chip. From my understanding it's just the resistor. So could you just cut off the harness and solder it directly to the wires OR stick it in the plug and keep it from coming out somehow ?
    I don't have the plate, there a Riva pipe on it so I already had the chip, I think it just went bad!

    sorry, but the exhaust temp sensor wont make it not crank... wont do anything but sound the alarm

    now the water temp sensor will kill spark, and I think on the earlier ones it wont crank either (cant remember)

    if the water temp is bad, as soon as you hit the start button it will start screaming at you and flashes the overheat symbol

    Hmmm. I know when I was over on the side messing with the chip & harnesses it did actually click over, but not 100% sure which one cause it to work.
    Would either the cat chip or temp sensor cause it not to turn over, to not even make a sound ?
    Seems maybe a lose connection, but messing with it again and still no go!

    Maybe I had pulled some of the wires in the front, I dont know, but disconnecting and reconnecting all the wires under the hood solved the problem.
