Default SV1000 wiring harness- HELP!

I am building a SV1000 project buggy and I can't get spark! Replaced the ECU and still nothing. I sent the harness and paid someone to bypass and terminate it.. no luck. Anyone have any advice or a referral to someone who really knows their stuff.
Any help would be appreicated. I am located in SoCal.

Cheers

I would get a manual and start with the small stuff first.
Like, check the oil level, clutch switch position, If it has a kick stand switch etc:
I'm not familiar with that particular engine, but that's my normal sequence when I have to troubleshoot a wiring harness.

There are some real experts here on electrical. Tip over sensor, anti-theft sensor in addition to what Carolina mentioned. Getting an new ECU may have beem premature.

LEt's see what the sperts say . . .

If you're willing, then head to Peter D's in Phoenix with your stuff. He'll be able to get it up and running. Contact stetler on this site and he'll be able to give you info on it. He recently went through a similar situation w/an R1 powered ride.

If it's not getting spark, but everything else, then look at the clutch switch, the kick stand switch and oil level.

If you can find a wire diagram, post it up and someone here should be able to snip out the un-needed stuff and show how/where to jump things that can cause problems.

That's what happened to a friend of mine with his 954 bike.
Worked on it for days and found in just a few minutes the oil level was low!!
He was sweating bullets because the Honda shop in town was quoting a HUGE price to troubleshoot his bike.

It was like Swingblade! Ain't no oil in it!

Might be a resistor issue.....sometimes, depending on if a motor has an anti-theft ignition, to bypass it you have to use the right resistor.....we had to do that on my CBR600F4i motor - can't remember if we did it on the SV1000, too.

I PM'd you, also.....

Thanks again for everyone's help. I think between Weller and Peter D. I should be able to get this ironed out.

Another thing I would check are spark plugs.
They tend to go bad all at once while sitting too.
