oil down the carbs.... keep flushing that motor. you really should have flushed it more than once before trying to start it. but some oil down the carbs should loosen up the rings & get them to seat again. this is most likely the problem.
oh, and PS.... eventually, you're more than likely looking at a rebuild... maybe not, but... more so than less...
No, not running yet. I'll try oil in the carbs. I bought enough cheap oil for 4 changes but I was under the impression that I had to run it for a minute or two between flushes to get all the water out. That's why I tried to start it. Thanks for the info.
ok is this an 08?
If so, do you hear the fuel pump kick on for 2 to 3 seconds when you first key on?
if NOT, then unplug the rollover sensor, shake it, hear it rattle, then put it back on right side up! (it's marked)
Same thing happened to a guy with an efi bike last time we rode. Dont really know how we got it to crank but it eventually did. It cranked a few minutes after spraying carb cleaner in the throttle bodies I dont know if that was good to do or not but it did eventually crank and seemed to run fine afterwards.
Sounds like your rings are stuck you need to put some oil in each cylinder then turn it over and hopefully the rings will unstick and fire back up.But you still mayb elooking at a rebuild after you get it going.
