It comes and goes. Started the other day so I rode it for 70 miles. Now has been starting for 3 days straight no problem. Leading me to believe its a battery issue. Dealer is coming to get bike Thursday next week for a frontal lobotomy.

So there is no issue! Put the batt on charge and presto!... if not done so. Sounds to me the bike just needs to be ridden properly when your leg heals. Hope you recover well

Rode a few hundred miles and the problem has never returned. All good here.

Great thread guys, thanks. I've been trying to get a class bike going, and this is now the 3rd time it wont start. Gonna charge the battery and give it another go.

Under the seat, behind the ECU, covered by a plastic cover.

The 1190's have an undersized battery and relatively high parasitic draw. The battery was in need of a charge. If the build date of this bike is before November 22, 2013, then there is a battery cable recall. OEM cables had improper crimps on ends which have high resistance. This effects charging and starting current flows.

Will it not come up with an MTC failure, if you spin up the back wheel without the front turning ? im sure mine did once when I was spraying lube on the chain.

yes it does, but it goes away if you cycle the key.
