Re: Bike wont start
My '05 exhibited those symptoms once after being ridden into my garage and stopped as normal. A short time later I went to start the bike, cranked as normal but would not fire up. In the end, after checking everything obvious (as you have done), I tried cranking with wide open throttle and the engine fired up. Didn't understand it then and it has never happened since (2 years ago +/-). In the old days we would have said the engine was flooded, but I never smelled fuel at any stage. Dunno whether this is of any help, maybe try it.
