I cycled the ignition a few times to prime pump, reset stepper motor to no avail. Was finally able to get it to start after cracking the throttle a bit. It idled fine from then on and subsequent attempts to start went fine. Annoying though... Any ideas? Two weeks really isn't *that* long to not start a bike (although it felt like forever to me!).
I had the same thing happen to me two weeks ago,I had one bar on the fuel gauge.I had to give it a lot of throttle and after a few attempts it started.
