Help! It won't start!

So, earlier this morning I take the Duc out to Radio Shack to get some parts to make a tag light. I come back home and park it, everything's fine. I hop on it a few hours later to run to the store, it won't start :mad:
The fuel pump is coming on, but I'm getting no fuel and no spark. Anyone ever had similar issues? I need this bike running, as it's my main mode of transportation.

After a little research, I discovered that it could be the crankshaft position sensor. So, I pulled it and cleaned it off. Shure enough that was my problem. It's running silky-smooth now :cool:

Funny... I had a no start condition the other day too- up near the top of one of our canyons, where I stopped for a "comfort" break at one of the facilities.

Tried everything I could while out in the boonies with not many tools. Totally frustrated... then I realized I had used the Kill Switch to stop the motor since I was on a certain incline and could not comfortably reach up to use the key... DUH!

Felt like a real fool , but it started easy once I turned the switch ON!

Lesson learned for me.:eek:

Hopz - I did the same, got so far as to call my son to come with the van. Naturally figured it out just as he was pulling in. DOH!!

Something else easily over looked is the starter relay up under the dash, mine has worked loose more than once, I now use a few zip ties to hold it in place.
