ZX-9R starting problems

Hi,

I have a 1999 ZX-9R which tipped over at pretty much a stand still. The bike ran after but a few days later will not start. Fuel pump is pumping fuel (as I have gas coming out when fuel line is pulled off) and the bike turns over but will not fire. Doesn't seem to be any gas smell coming from the tail pipe

Is there a tip over sensor on the 1999's?

Would a bad ignition, kill, Sidestand switch stop the fual flow or Ignition but still allow the bike to turn over?

Thank you for any help.
Jeff

Cam position sensor top front of the number 1 cylinder. Gray plug above number one cylinder.

ZX9r Starting issue

Ended up being the battery. It was only producing 6 volts.. I guess even with a jumper battery on it was screwing up the voltage enough the bike wasn't firing.

Normally when the battery voltage drops that low the starter lock out relay drops out and then you end up with the starter solenoid clicking away. You must have a good lock out relay which works at below 6 volts, some prefer 10 volts.

Most of the swithes still allow to rev the starter. I had a 1993 zxr750r, and it was able to rotate even with the kill-switch off!!

Seems like no fuel entering the cylinders for me. Try changing fuel filter. Do you have an electric fuel pump?
