can u pull the air cleaner cover and filter off and try spraying a small amout of starter fluid in there and see if it tries to start? I still think you have a fuel delivery issue.

Are you trying to start the bike in neutral or are you pulling the clutch in???

Please try it in neutral and report back.

After that test.....sit on the bike, lift the kickstand up, and try starting it again.

Mmm ... starting fluid. Good way to check if the injectors are clogged and everything else is working OK.

I had gas crystal in a motor home I bought which had been sitting for a few years. Kind of like rock candy. It was a crystal an had to be physically removed it was keeping the seat for the float on a carb from closing. Your bike could have been sitting for a little longer than 6 months.

Injector problems are often solved by a professional cleaning with testing.

Fuel Injector cleaning for motorcycles or cars is done for $21 an injector plus $10 shipping for the lot by WitchHunter Performance of Duvall, WA.

Thanks for the responses. Sorry it took so long to respond back. I did take the air filter cover off just to check the condition of the filter. I have not tried starting fluid. I did not know if it would cause damage. The green N light is lit on the display panel. It will not engage the starter unless I pull in the clutch handle in even when when in neutral. I also noticed that if I put it a gear and pull the clutch handle in and try to start it, it will pull the cycle even when pulled all the way in.

Everything you just stated about the clutch is Normal. Try a little of the starting fluid.

then you are not getting fuel. I would suspect the vacuum line to the petcock, or clogged injectors.
