Changed oil, now won't start

I find myself in the same situation, changed the Oil pressure switch, changed the oil (seemed like a good time to do that), kill switch set to run, turn on key (I don't hear the Fuel Injectors doing anything, but the FI light is not on), press the starter and it cranks and cranks, but nothing happens. I have fuel, I have oil, and I have a headache..

your comment about listening for the Fuel Injectors pressurizing - what should I be checking if I don't hear that?

This thread was orginally for a 2007 1800R.

What year and model?

If you have a 2nd Gen 1800C or a 1800F, there is a separate 20 fuse for FI, Ignition Fuel pump in the right frame cover..

Two main 30 amp fuses in the left frame cover..

2005 1300c Red, Mustang seat, HK 2.5 straights. Leds for safety-front & back. 193,834 VTX miles

What sound should be listening for??? The one that isn't there now that was before, the quiet whine/hum of the fuel pump. If you don't hear it, don't bother pressing the start button because it's not getting fuel. Twisting the throttle won't help start it either

What year is the bike?
Is there a fuel manager on it? If yes, does it have power?
Is it in gear?
