new year gift from my 1190R

2800 something Km
day before yesterday a nice tour with friends



used it to go to work the same evening and had a great ride home at seven in the morning
the bike sleeps ouside under a shelter but that's it so I plugged the charger in
today, wanting to go for a ride so I wouldn't have to deal with all the shit and fake friend's wishes for the new year... nothing
crancks over but doesn't fire
smells like gasoline
as if the engine was an old carb version completely drowned
shit is all you can do is push a button so it ain't even my fault ...
as I tried to start it the motor-management/fuel injection sign came on

happy new year...

probably something of the kind
won't even try to fix it or to get it started myself
call the assistance and have it delivered at the dealer's
warranty...

Unfortunately that's a "known error" at low temparatures.
You could try to switch all powered electr. accessories off before start (incl. heated grips) and try again. Battery doesn't provide enough power / bike's using too much for starting.

I guess that's what the "Adventure" name stands for.

Same here in Ostend, Belgium! My 1190A will be towed in about 30 minutes to the dealer... My dealer states that the latest software update will fix this difficult cold start (in my case NO start) issue...

Same symptoms: cranks, gasoline smell, nothing...

Did you crack the throttle a bit? Maybe bike was flooded?

I feel your pain... fortunatly my 990 fired right away, but was pouring rain so heavily that was impossible to ride... round the block, back into the shed...

my 990 will do do the same thing in the winter. will crank but no fire.
mine does this because I need to cange the oil and put a thinner viscosity oil... I know its like comparing apples and oranges but you never know.
