I feel like a broken record, but especially after washing and running the bike, set the engine to TDC so all the valves are closed. If you don't do this small step the steam in the exhasut system can quickly create a small rusty spot that can hold the valves from fully closing and then it will have low compression and a no start situation. I have also seen the kill button get water in it which will also give the no start. Unplug the kill button and try again. Good Luck . :busted: WR Dave
