Hi, Guys ... Mate has a Rocket 3 classic that's been 'triked' and won't start. Was running OK before but won't now. No error codes show up on ECU and everything looks ok ... battery charged to 12.9v ... can you suggest anything?

It more than clicks .... it spins the engine but doesn't start .... the start button, etc seems ok ... from rainy & very cold Bonnybridge in Scotland ...
has it been sitting for a while?
might try a shot of starting fluid to see if that helps.
over here little critters likes to chew on the wires might take a look
gas could be old and it wont hit a lick
do u here the pump run for a couple seconds when u turn on ignition?

Had the TuneECU diagnostic active on the system and it allows you to 'test' the fuel pump, which I've done and all seems ok .... and early on last week we tried the 'starter fluid' through the air filter but nothing happened. That was when we realised / discovered there was no spark at the plugs either.

with a 12volt test light check coils for 12volts if it has 12volts then ***with ign on
on test light hook clamp to batt neg side and probe to the ground side of coil and see if it flashes when cranking (on each coil)
