    Help bike won't run

    Hi everyone. I am at a loss.
    I have an 03 tuono. Was running fine the other day, come the morning it starts and runs for about 2 or 3 seconds and stops. If I try and use the fast ideal or throttle it won't start, only starts if I touch nothing and again it stops after 2 or 3 seconds.
    It was suggested it may be the tip over switch but I have measured the resistance and it is within specs. Any help is much appreciated as I am at a loss.

    If it fires then its not the tipover switch or probably any other ignition issue. My first guess would be the fuel pump. Sounds like it is priming the fuel line but not keeping pressure once running. Fuel pump failure is relativly common. change pump and try again.
