Hey guys, newbie here. My bike is not starting. I've changed the plugs, batrery is 100% healthy. Does anyone know what it could be?
Please help!

It didn't even try to kick over. Have you pulled the air cleaner? I would pull it, consider shooting some starting fluid down the throat, see if it kicks over then. It sounds like it is not getting any gas.

Thanks for the reply, we drained the tank..don't know what the previous owner had in there..the gas was red. We shot some gas down the throat and it does start but not as expected. The work is still in progress and I will keep you posted.

They were just trying to get that 40 cent per gallon tax break for using off road diesel.

your gonna have to drain the fuel pump housing and get all the diesel out before she will run.Tank of fresh fuel, gasoline 😁
once the pump housing is full of fuel the pump should purge the lines & injectors and then start. I don't think the diesel fuel would harm anything.

Either that or ALOT of Marvel Mystery Oil... but either way, let's just hope it wasn't tranny fluid...

^ exactly what he said... Also, the fuel filter is going to retain some of that 'red stuff'. It may take a full tank run through just to clear it all out, as diesel is a bit thicker than gasoline. I can't say for sure if it would actually help, but I'd try to find the highest octane gasoline available (sunoco in some places may have 104). Just thinking about keeping any extraneous stuff from raising combustion temps while it's being flushed through/burnt off.

Once you get it running again, some Seafoam in the tank (at appropriate mixture volumes) wouldn't hurt to help clean anything that built up or was a byproduct of the flushing process. Also may not hurt you to go ahead and put a new set of plugs in afterwards too.

Depending on what year your Fury is, you may want to look into retro-ing the vertical fuel filter setup in while the pump is out. 2010, 2011, and some model year 2012s had the horizontal setup from factory. This design led to clogged filters and no start conditions as well. I never experienced any problems, but I finally updated the setup to mine last summer just for peace of mind.

Hi mate, I've got a 2010 and having problems with getting it to start. I see from your posts about a fuel filter problem specific to those models. To upgrade the filter to the vertical type, do I just call a Honda dealer for this part? Or can you buy it at other places.
Please let me know, I'm in Australia by the way.

Hey guys hope everyone is good, i just replace my 2010 with the vertical fuel pump and still would not start, after much trouble shooting it was the electrical connector it burnt out and was hard to see but i had to do a workaround instead of replacing and it worked and started right up. so make sure its pumping gas you wont hear it engage like most fuel pumps hope this helps
