street 500 need help

so on Friday morning i went on about a 2 hour ride just to enjoy the spring air here in Italy. When i parked the bike and went to start it the next day it would not start. the bike would crank but i did not hear the fuel pump prime, i have spark at the plug. I am checking relays today and all the fuses are good. What could be the problem? Is it the kill switch that i have read about on other forums?

I would double check the fuel recall first, I know models were having issues with those... 2nd part, yes, it could be the "kill" switch, only way to diagnose besides the wiring schematics would be to jump and bypass the switch but that requires a ton of extra work and know how as to what you can and cannot do... If you are not capable of doing it yourself, you are going to have to pay someone that will...

If you have ignition, great, now you need fuel as you alway have air.... If the fuses are good then yes you can move on down the river of the electrical prowess, make sure you are going circuit by circuit, not all at once...

Ok so the running lean/rich issues are supposed to be fixed... According to the recall... Well, since you took it there no need to update us here unless that's something you want to do... I am curious though... And as I have said before, if it is out of your capabilities, then you have to get someone that is qualified to do the job.... twice...

kinda irritated with the this Harley shop. they want to go straight into replacing the fuel pump because they don't hear it prime. i personally think that they want to make money ( 506 euro) off of me since i am an american in their country. so they are giving me the run around with warranty and what is exactly wrong. but once i get a for sure answer i will update. maybe it will help the next guy down the line.

If the Pump is not turning on, Could be a bad Relay. Or the Trigger Circuit of the Relay. They could Bypass the relay with another know good one to test.

To a point yes, the relay is just a control device used for typical pumps, lights, flashers, etc... Easily fixed and replaced if it is just a relay, highly doubt it... Look at the device pulling the amperage and doing the work in that circuit after the easy stuff is checked, like battery voltage, fuses, relays, then the device being used...

Trigger circuit of the relay? Do tell what that is....

They can do alot to test it out, and I am sure they did, but the problem isn't just the fuel pump, it's the warranty and the service department... Hold them accountable... If it fails within a certain warranty period, and it is supposed to be replaced, besides maintenance wear and tear items like brakes, oil changes, adjustments etc, then hold them accountable... Unless you have a crazy extended warranty and all that is contract covered just by paying a small deductible...

feels like i have been pulling teeth all week between talking to the American Harley Corporation and the the European Harley Corporation my bike is finally under warranty here and it is being fixed cost free (thank god Harley supports the military). The fuel pump should be fixed by Monday and we shall see if that is the problem then. i am sticking to my guns with the "kill switch" being bad but we shall see soon enough. thank you guys for all of the support]

I remember when I took my 2010 Majesty back to Yamaha for a No Start. It would start. Just had to sit for awhile. The Mechanics turned the key on. No Pump Whine. Then tested the Relay. To make certain it was the pump. The bike only had about 3400 Miles. Bought it new in 2012. Only had it a few months.

I don't understand the big deal though... If it is covered it's covered...

Which branch of military? And what country? Of course HD is supportive, look at the american military...

Well they would be the ones doing the diagnosis and the repairs, they want to test it out fully before throwing parts at it.... You just said the pump was being replaced, now you suspect the kill switch is the culprit in the first place? I am lost....
