OK one to keep for the records, anyone has a X9 500 that is working fine all kill switch and emobilixer fine but no spark, i spend 2 hours working on a X9 500 and could not find a spark.

 only to find the cause of no spark was Tilt switch i believe, unplugged clean started bike put it back in and bang X9 is fixed, next time people check this is every dont start, was so simple.

That's how I got that second X9 when I traded in the Nexus. Dealer couldn't start it and I got a really good deal cash my way if I could start it. Unplugged the tilt switch and it started first press. Mechanic couldn't believe it as he'd tried for ages. It will start without the switch fitted.

That's a good tip!  (no pun intended)

Murphy's 4th law of motion states that any small object that is accidentally dropped will immediately hide itself under a larger object.

Same thing on my Aprilia Mille, starting problems, and went on the AFI Aprilia sponsored forum , a chap from Norway suggested it may well be the TPO sensor, as his was to blame, so admitedly one had to look through the book of words, and I took it off recalibrated it and hey presto, all that fathing about with changing the 4 plugs on the VTwin, and in the interim the starter solonoid was being iffy, a wire was loose so I purchased a new one.
