    A timely thread. My 2015 had a no start about a year ago. All fine since then, until yesterday when it recurred. New Yuasa battery in the bike last year; starter turns the engine over normally, but no firing at all. I tried full throttle briefly, thinking it may be flooded but no firing. Then, after turning the key off and back on, it fired up quickly on the next attempt. After a repeat of the above about an hour later resolved by again turning the switch off and on, I headed home to not push my luck and get stranded. It seemed to be ignition switch related, now with the above information, I have an idea as to where to look. Much appreciated.

    Bencart_uk, for clarification, did you remove the ignition switch for visualization of the damaged wiring? Just wondering how you accessed it. Thanks.

    I could see the damaged wire by looking underneath the front fairing with a torch. I didnít need to remove anything.

    To repair I stripped the full front end off the bike to gain better access.
