2010 z1000 1,800 miles when I start the bike it shuts off then I have to start it again. whats up with that?
+1 yes just hold your finger or thumb on the start button until the bike fires...you should be righ then...ccasion:hold the start button a little bit longer, this is a fairly common issue.
Mine does it too. Thought it was due for a new set of plugs until I read this thread.But... when you switch on the ignition and you hear that noises and the dashboard doing the animations, the throttle opens a little bit and closes.
So, all you gotta do to have a perfect start is to start the engine just after switching on the ignition.
No need to be EXTRA fast.
Just don't wait for the dashboard animation and noises to stop.
Simply turn ignition on and start the engine.
