Bike will not start
Hi everyone, I need some help....I live in an area in Australia(Queensland), where there are little or no bike mechanics, so when my 2011 12GS Adventure started to struggle starting one morning, then when it did it was making a horrible ratting noise, i decided to strip it right down and give it a massive 'service', with my Haynes manual in tow off I went. I ordered all genuine parts from Munich Motorcyles. I changed the piston rings, cleaned the pistons, new air filter, plugs all round, new gaskets. I'm sure, or i thought i was, that i got the timing right!!! Now it's all back together, I charged the battery then went to start the bike, it's cranking really well, however not firing, if i get someone to turn the bike over for me and i stand at the exhaust i get a really strong fuel smell, but it just keeps turning over.
Advice would be greatly appreciated on where/what to do - tools/diagnostic equipment i may need - in fact just any help at all - many thanks - Rick
