Did you not try again after it stalled? If you didn't, try again, but don't use any throttle. Let the ECU work out what fuelling it wants to use to start the bike - less is more where this is concerned - you don't wanna flood the engine. Hold the starter button down for no more than 3 seconds at a time, and leave a good 15-20 seconds between tries to avoid the starter overheating, they're not really designed for loads longer than that... you don't want to have to change your starter as well!

How much throttle are u giving it when u try to start?

Turn up your idle screw one full turn (clockwise). Get some starter fluid. Spray it into the intake as u try to start it.

New battery is good....

But if it's been a while since you've started her up then splash some fresh gas in the tank. Sounds to me like she's just not really wanting to come out of her nap.

If the bike ran fine before you put it away then it should run fine after. Just might take some coaxing. If it starts and runs like shit... try fresh fuel.

I'd concur with Try Again.

Crank it and don't give it any throttle. This bike has an ECU that should figure out how much it needs.

Crank and give it a rest. Crank and give it a rest if no start. I'd give it a minute or three of this, on and off, before I bothered with adjusting idle, adjusting mixture screws, etc.

Did you do anything to tank recently? Anything where you might have punched a red or blue vent line on reinstall?
All fuel injector connectors hooked up?
Battery negative to engine block lug is secure?
Check coil packs for high voltage and primary/secondary coil winding resistance.
Crankshaft position sensor.
Throttle position sensor.
Don't know how this would all go bad on a 2014....

Cheers for all the tips guys. After not touching it yesterday I adjusted the idle and it turned on fine. Straight after work it turned over fine again. Thanks for all the troubleshooting guys appreciate it!
