    2007 R1200GS Won't start

    Need some advice on a non-starting GS. Turns over fine and it is getting spark but won't run. Maybe a fuel pump? Had been running fine up to this point. I would appreciate some advice on this one.
    Thanks

    2007 R1200GS won't start

    My GS will turn over but not run. Has spark. I have read about the EWS ring failure. Any ideas
    Thanks

    I don't think it will crank with an EWS failure.

    I suspect a fuel pump issue. Listen to see if the puel pump comes on when the key is turned on.

    btw- if you're thinking fuel pump, listen to hear it initiate at start up; you should hear it pressurize the FI system during the first 5 seconds or so after you turn the key on (with sidestand up and/or in neutral).

    Or pull an injector and point it into a can and crank engine. No spray = fuel pump or its controller.
