I'm almost ready to sell the new techno wonder and keep my 09. I tried again tonight w/o the filter, no luck. I drained the fuel from the dealer and put in Sunoco premium. I couldn't figure out how to remove the clip on the line to the tank/pump, so I poured it out the fill opening. I'm thinking the pump/injector may have some of the flame retardant still in them. I normally flush the tank and carb before I first start my new bikes. Is there a way to drain the injector and line to it? I guess my next step is to find an auto store open Jan 1st and buy some starter fluid. :moon: (opps..I meant starting fluid)

Absolutely take her to the dealer and have them help you walk through your issues. Blowing up a new bike is a bad idea when there may be some weird issue. we had issues with a series of the Yamaha Nitro EFI sleds two years ago at a dealership that I was weekending at. Turned out a series of sleds in a specific run had some sensor issues that were easily remedied. A good dealership will appreciate the learning experience and knowing your issues so they can help other customers.

Does it have compression?
Does it have Fire?
Does it have Fuel & Air?

I would take the plug out, use a eye dropper and put a squirt of fuel in and replace the plug and kick it. If it fires this will tell you that your injector may not be firing for what ever reason. It will also tell you if you have fire going to the plug obviously because it fired.
If it doesnt fire after directly injecting fuel into the cylinder then it could be compression, valve timing ect..

buy some starter fluid.

Don't do this. You will never learn to troubleshoot anything like this.

Just a thought.

Yes I have spark and the plug was wet, so I have fuel. Yamaha ships the bikes with a liquid flame retardant in the tank. If think this crap fouled the plug. I left the new plug out overnight to air out the cylinder. It started today on the 3rd kick. Still takes a few kicks to restart. This would suck if I stalled in a moto. Hopefully after break-in and some time on the motor it will get better. Unfortunately there's snow on the ground and the only track nearby, Blue Diamond, is closed. If only they had equipment, like a bulldozer, to clear the track. (Insert sarcasm here.)

You will get use to starting it. All my bikes have been a little different starting technique but its easy wants you learn it.

Well today was another day and...it wouldn't start. I tried everything again. Changed the plug, used cold knob, didn't use cold knob, held throttle wide open to clear out cylinder etc... I was already writing my "For Sale" ad. As a last resort I did what Yamaha says never to do under penalty of death...I held the throttle open just a crack. Success, it started. That made me think the idle was too low. I set the idle to 2150rpm and it seems to be working. I'll try again Sunday and see if the beast starts. At this point I'm kinda stuck with her. I already installed the GYTR graphics, bought the power tuner($20 batteries not included) and have a Dr.D pipe sitting there in the box. And I've yet to ride it in the dirt, around the dealer parking lot doesn't count. Wish me luck tomorrow.

Man I was really hoping you got it. Yamaha has a 30day warranty even with that if you have not rode this bike yet and with all the stuff your trying to get it started I would load this back in the truck and bring it back to the dealer.

Good luck
