Yeah its been done mate. The reason I now think it may be the alarm is because the fuel pump won't even prime now but while the ignition is on occasionally you can hear the alarm clicking repeatedly as if it was being turned on and off over and over and it's the same as how the fuel pump kept priming over and over in a row. You couldn't hear the alarm clicking before because of the fuel pump. So it could be a fault with the alarm to the ignition. So that's the next step this week.

4 months off the road Simbo. We've got some very knowledgeable guys in our club but this has baffled everyone.

Ok looks like we have found the issue. The ECM wasn't giving an earth to the fuel pump relay or something like that. There has been a temporary fix but need to check if it is the ECM. It's a long shot but don't suppose anyone has a spare ECM I could borrow just to test it?

My bike is sorted. Turned out to be the least likely cause...the ECU. For what ever reason it wasn't communicating with the fuel pump relay properly. I bought a second hand ECU off eBay for 60 quid and after my mate checked the wiring for shorts connected it and it's fine now :)

Virtually everything was tested lol and a lot of research was done trying to find similar problems and I found a site where a guy with a gixr had the exact same issue. So from that we focused on the ECU but my mate wanted to cinform the wiring wasn't shorting and causing the issue first.

Glad you got it sorted and your mate sounds pretty savvy, was a sound precaution to check for shorts etc before fitting new ecu ...

Does the alarm have an immobiliser - maybe that's iffy ?

My mate had bypassed the immobiliser part of the alarm.

I feel such a dick - for some reason I'd missed the posting that said you'd sorted it - & all the subsequent postings !!  I'm blaming it on "system error" .  Glad you got it sorted - must have been a nightmare
