    I have read through many if not all the threads that could possibly be connected to the issues I`m having and am still at a bit of a loss and could do with a few pointers if you would be so kind.
    I have an 07 Gen 2 Tuono which I purchased back in November 2015, It has 17,000 mls on the clock and for the first 5-6 weeks it ran like a swiss watch. Started first time every time, ran really well and put a huge grin on my ugly mug whenever I rode it. Then one day it decided that it didn`t love me any more and refused to start ? It was fine when I put it to sleep in the garage but a couple of days later it would not fire up. Put key in ignition, switched on, clocks would light up and cycle, could hear fuel pump prime, hit started button, engine would crank but just wouldn`t fire. Bike had plenty of fuel as I had topped it up on my way home, battery was fully charged as it was on an Optimate. So i was a bit puzzled. Had a look on here and read a few things and decided that it might not be such a bad idea to get a new battery as I had no idea how old the existing one was. Also discovered and checked the tilt switch and all seemed in order. Fully charged new battery and tried again...... again it would not fire. At this point I decided to start taking things a little more seriously and started to strip things down. I checked all the connections and earths that I could find, cleaned with WD40 contact cleaner as well as removed any signs of visible corrosion. Tried again......still cranking but would not fire ? Then I thought it may have flooded as it was being cranked so left it a week but again it would not fire. Anyway I left it a few days and over the New Year break I went into the garage to try again and hey presto turned the key hit the button and it almost fired, tried it again and it burst into life and I let it run for 10 mins switched it off and back on again and again it fired up I was still puzzled but a lot happier. I decided to keep it in its semi stripped state until I was happy that it would start up OK which it did over a period of about 3-4 weeks. Every now and then I`d go and start it, run it for 10 mins or so and it was fine. I even left it for a week without the Optimate being connected and no problem !! So I thought sod it I`ll put it back together and see how it rides....... big mistake !!!! I took it to work last Monday and on the way it was fine for the most part although it would pop and bang a little when I decelerated and would hesitate for a moment when I got back on the power. At one point it stalled when I pulled the clutch in but it fired up again straight away. I got to work, started it a couple of times during the course of the day and it was fine. When I attempted to ride home it cut out after about 2 miles and refused to start and i had to get relayed home. I have since discovered no spark at the rear cylinder and have changed the coil pack, plugs, caps and leads all with genuine replacement parts and still no spark. It appears that there is no power going to the coils. Can someone confirm where the `brown` connector is that everyone mentions is located please. Also any other handy hints, tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers fella`s
    Steve.
    Hi, I'm having the same trouble you had my story is very similar except mine just won't start.
    Did you ever get to the bottom of the problem as I'm banging my head against a wall?
    Thanks any response would be amazing.

    when he,s left it awhile it starts , is that right ??

    i had a very similar problem with a cbr yonks ago.. turns out the low tension to the coil pack cables had moisture in them.. and were corroding, they dont actually use pure copper..

    Hi Garry
    After trying loads of of options today I finally gave in and bought a new battery even though I had the bike hooked up to my running car yesterday which didn't sort my problem and boom she fired up. No idea if there's any underlying problems that will drain this battery but fingers crossed it sorted it........Watch this space though I'm not totally convinced my troubles are over!!!!!

    Have you scrolled through on the dash to check charging voltage? Should be about 14volts

    I hope the battery solved your problems. I have the same issues. 07 that runs near my house but always dies and strands me when I go more than 5 miles from home. They should have called these Tuono's the Stranders! Looking forward to trading mine in for something reliable next spring.

    Sorry... don't get where you are coming from.... ?

    Your first post drags up an old issue and slags off the brand..

    Yeah... it ain't perfect but why not just introduce yourself and ask for some help ?

    Guess your glass is already empty...

    Good response Felix.

    In fact, there are not many vehicle manufacturer that have never had vehicle problems. Seems Lakeabilene is basing his decision on a very small statistical sample.

    Anyway, based on the comprehensive description of his problem, it's obvious that his bike just gets homesick when it's ridden 5 miles away from home, and sulks, refusing to go any further.
