K100 not starting

I just got my bike back after a 3 1/2 month of seperation (not my fault) and days after I got it she will not start. I've pulled plugs and checked various this and thats. So, here's the question: With a little over 40k on the clock can the Fuel Pump (mounted in the tank) suddenly go bad? I am picking up a new fuel filter today, but it's awfully odd that I road the bike 45 miles from the paint shop, parked it for 2 days and now it won't start. The starter turns like it should and the choke (idle advance- it's fuel injected) is operating, but NO crankie. Who's got a K bike and can tell me if I'm on the right path. I am not a mechanic- I just have limited mechanical aptitude. HELP!

I've been so busy with business for the last 6 months or so that I had not noticed that the Acemeister had added a K-Whiner - aka Slush-head - to the stable.

Ahh, the Whiner - many an MOA type has put literally squintillions of miles on the nearly indestructible flying brick.

If I were you, I'd check out BMW Sport or join the MOA and look at their forums. I - like Justin Wilson - absolutely gaaarrrroooonnnnntttteeee that you'll find several folks who have tracked down and solved exactly the same intermittent situation that you experienced and are likely to experience again.

K-Whiners not as likely to toast a rear end as the newer bikes either.
