I recently hit a deer on my 2002 RC51. After getting her back home the next day. I tried to start her up and see how bad the damage was. I got her to fire up. Kinda. It was like it was only hitting on one cylinder. Then no more starting. I have checked and i have no spark at plug. Any ideas at what might be the problem???? Anything will help.. Thanks

Damn, I hope you're OK !

If you impacted the deer with the front of your bike, check up under the right front fairing, as the front ignition coil is up there, as well as the ignition wiring. Also, if the bike had a big impact check the bank angle sensor. I bought a crashed bike a few years ago, and only ran on one cylinder. The above mentioned ignition wiring was bad, and something during the impact pulled the spark plug socket out. Ended up an easy fix, hopefully yours is too!
