Here's One for the Books
 
CTX700D won't start. Cranks, but won't catch. Fine if that was the problem I could fix it. But 1 bike is in neutral so no check there, but the Fuel gauge is bouncing like a yoyo from 0 to full and up and down repeatedly. Can't find anything on this so into the shop. Yes there is gas in the tank.

Huh.... Did it sound like the fuel pump primed?

I think So, but the fill gauge is separate. It goes to the shop tomorrow. I guess they will find the problem. Of course it's out of warranty.

The Owner's Manual (page105) says that's a "Fuel System problem". Have them check the battery too.

If you are handy you might want to disconnect the battery and reconnect.

You may want to check voltage of battery while it is disconnected, I think it should read at least 12.5 volts.

A disconnected battery may still read 12.5V or more and still be bad. This is why there are load testers for batteries.

If it cranks but won't start always try some starting fluid first. If it fires then you know you have a fuel delivery problem. I once went to a friends house to help him with his jeep not starting. He didn't have any starting fluid. Bet we worked on it for more than an hour before I noticed his fuel hose was kinked.

Verify that the fuel pump cycles when you first turn the key on. On page 4-7 service manual, troubleshooting “ Engine crank no start” check fuses . Blown main fuse (30 A) . Blown sub fuse 15 A (Fl) . Blown sub fuse 7.5 A (ENG STOP) . Especially check the 15 amp (FI) or fuel injection fuse. On page 22-15 it references the fuel meter blinking and testing the level sensor and fuel meter although I don’t think a bad level sensor would prevent the bike from starting. The level sensor is part of the fuel pump housing so its possible the pump is not getting power to run “fuse or loose connector” or the pump is bad, this would keep the bike from starting. This is just one of many other possibilities.
