    • K1100RS starts but won't run

      Hello all,
      I have recently bought a K1100RS, 1995 model. ABS
      I took it for a spin at the weekend. Stopped in a local town for an hour and when I came back the bike would not run.

      It starts and runs (and revs) if the starter button is kept depressed. As soon as the starter is released it dies immediately, as if ignition is lost.

      Any ideas. I have been trying to find out what the differnece between the starter circuit and the normal running circuit is.
      Tomorrow I plan to swop some of the relays.

      Thanks in advance for any help.
      Mark

      Sounds to me, like the kill switch at the right combination switch may have some problems or the switch at the side stand. :question:

      Just guessing...
