    Default Bike not starting - 900 Sport

    2011 900 Sport (2002 model) 1400 miles on the clock and recently serviced. Driving to work slowed for a right hander and bike dies on me then refused to start.
    I've checked the fusebox and all seem to be ok.
    Initial thoughts were fuel pump, choke or a short in the sidestand solenoid thing. Engine cranks over ok so I'm thinking not the solenoid thing. I left it for a few hours so totally cold - same thing - crankity crank but no vroom vroom
    When ignition switch is at "ON" and I kick up the sidestand, theres not the usual buzz of the fuel pump kicking in.
    Any other fuses I should check, or possible other causes suggestions???
    A I right in thinking the fuel pump is located in the actual tank???
    Many thanks.

    Check the breather hose is not blocked. Is their a spark? Fuel on the spark plugs? Run/off switch is set to run!!

    If pump not running, most likely electrical fault rather than the pump, I would check all connectors to the pump..I have a 916 but I assume the pump is in the tank on the 900s, if so first connector will be underneath the tank.

    Most likely the fuel pump relay is faulty or a bad connection at it's base. I think it is located under the tank beside the ECU and the battery. There are 2 relays and the flasher unit. The relays should be interchangeable which could help fault finding.

    Old enough to know better, young enough not to care

    Thanks for all the help and advice - would appear that it's a fuel pump relay problem - all the advice was much appreciated.
