Hard to start after riding

I take my zx9r out and i go to the bank and kill the engine and lights for 5 min. When i try to turn it back on it doesnt want to turn on. This is happening more often also when i stop and get gas. If anyone had some tips please let me know

This. I'm a big fan of Motorcycles Unlimited and recommend them all day long. But for any electrical work you should do as much as you can on your own.

Remember shops charge by hour and electrical work is time intensive. Meaning you can spend 6 hours straight tracing a problem and only have a list of things that probably aren't the problem. A multimeter, terminal cleaner, MAF cleaner and notepad are your friends on this one.

I can lend a hand tracing the issue if you still need help next Thursday night.

Maybe your carb is sticking open and your dumping fuel? Stuck float bowl?

Pull the tank/airbox off, look down and rotate the throttle, make sure the plates/butterflies are travelling back to where they go.

Totally agree!! If you have extra money layin' around that's cool, but if your $$ is like mine I'd check the basic stuff first.

I had the same problem during the summer

I think it was a bad gasoline or other fuel issue , cause it went away after the next refill.

I could get it to start by truning the key to on position them back to off then back on then off then on and hit the start button.

maybe some junk was in the fuel line I don't know...
