So I’m at the point of starting the bike again for the first time in a year since I started the rebuild, but it won’t start.

  • Starter only turns when clutch is pulled.
  • Jumpered fuel cut relay and fuel pump works.
  • Also no spark.
  • Sidestand switch works oké.
  • Measured the sidestand diode, one way no continuity and the other way around continuity but 540 ohm resistance (bit high? No values found in repair manual).
So my guess is it has something to do with the conditions when bike can be started, so sidestand or clutch. Signal goes to CDI which in turn will provide signals for fuel pump and spark.

So any ideas?

Well, the things that could prevent it starting : sidestand, clutch, gear/neutral and kill-switch
Is it in gear? Does the neutral switch work? [Clutch switch seems to work if pulling the clutch makes it turn. ]

Can you bypass the sidestand switch to make double-sure it is not the side-stand?
Something like this thread... Side stand switch bypass

Odd that it doesn't have spark when turning, maybe it is a couple of issues...

Good luck mate.

Suggest you check all the interlock circuits are in place and to the correct switches. You could try defeating them one at a time to find the rouge one. Good luck.
