Won't Start/ Change Battery/Spark Plugs
The bike has around 3,000 miles on it, last week I was riding it. Out of nowhere the bike cuts off, try to start it but no gives. Push start it no gives, luckily I was close to home. So I pushed it all the way home. I refueled it with 87 octane at racetrack like day ago before cutting it off.
So, I assumed it was a bad battery, and giving enough volts to start. Replaced it and the same problems. Looked at spark plug, it was black or so, and the gap was close to 8.7 or so mm. Replaced it and refueled bike with non-ethanol gas and Techron Fuel System Cleaner. Still the same but I put some starter fluid in airbox, and bammm it starts but still dies. Done this multiple times and continue to put starter fluid while running so the new gas and fuel system cleaner go through the system. Can rev high while starter fluid is sprayed. I also took off my tank and dissembled the fuel pump to see if it was gunk up. But it wasn't.
Should I continue to spray starter fluid(whole bottle) to get the system to clean or its a bigger problem then fuel(stator, injectors, coils).
