GT 1000 cut out w strange symptoms
Hello fellow MS'ers.
I seek help with my GT 1000 which died 1/2 mile from home, it wasn't electrical, it just stopped running. So, got it home, yes I have spark at all 4 plugs. I also pulled cam belt covers just to check obvious, all looks as it should. Next I pulled the Corse Dynamics fuel pump assembly hoping it was a disconnected rubber line from the pump to the filter...alas, its on there as it should. Now on to the strange symptoms:
1. Low fuel light comes on at key turn then is out even w empty tank and assembly in my hands. Wires to the sender look okay and I disconnected it, reconnected it, so that little sender appears to be bad. It is related to the bike not getting fuel? IDK? Fuel pump whirrls so yes, that's getting power. I have yet to change filter, all internals looked very clean however and I wouldn't believe a fuel filter would just acutely shut off fuel to engine?
2. I'll hit the starter button and the starter motor will do its thing and still turn with my thumb away from the button! Yes it will stop spinning with kill switch. Can someone explain if that's a normal thing with no combustion?
Any help with narrowing down what I believe is a fuel issue is appreciated!
