    gp1200r just died

    Just test drove a 2002 GP1200R. Rode like a champ for 15 minutes then just died. Now won't start. Has gas. Has spark. Any ideas?

    An engine needs fuel in the right amount, air in the right amount, spark at the right time, and compression to be able to start and run.

    Yes I understand that. Just trying to understand why it died in action then won't start. I've had skis that I shut off and wouldn't start again but never had one do this.

    Check compression.
    Check for spark.

    Compression is good and has spark.

    if you crack a flywheel or shear a keyway, it will spark but at the wrong time

    The kill switch lanyard. too much gas in the engine will prevent it from starting too.
