2011 r1 have 19832 miles, just changed new spark plugs, new battery, New starter, a little dirty air filter,
But the bike won't start, I don't know what's wrong with it?
Can someone tell me what I should do next?

Could be fuel related. If the starter is new, try testing the fuel pump and make sure it’s pumping at the correct PSI.

Just because you hear the fuel pump priming doesn’t mean it’s pumping at the right PSI.

This is where I would start if the starter is new.

Another shot in the dark here are valves. I know the manual says every 26,000 miles but my number 3 exhaust on both sides were pretty tight when I first checked. I should have check at about 15,000 miles.

Just throwing some stuff out there but start small of course.

Check all fuses.

I believe that's your check engine Light coming on while cranking? It might be your cam position sensor or crank position sensor. Bump starting sometimes gets the bike going.

Also, check that your starter solenoid and the plug that goes into it from the harness are wired up correctly.

You had it all apart to change the plugs, check the snap connector on the fuel line that goes to the tank. If not fully seated it won’t be getting fuel

Hey! I also was thinking when you changed the plugs and put the coils back on did you really push hard on the coils until they made a snap noise?

the bike started right after it was done, but the next day it won't start

I had a similar issue. Check the fuses under your seat, especially the 7.5 amp ones. One is for the TPS or Piston Sensor (I can't recall), but it was toast. Easy inspection, easy fix.

how to tell if it was blown? cause last time I changed the main fuse(which was blown) it looks like nothing happens to it

Does it start with the kickstand up? Seems like something wont let it spark or even try. My apologies for the rookie tip bit its just my $.02.

Ive had that happen with my turbo talon atleast twice, it was a wiring nightmare. Tho the main fuse A 30amp, never had it happen under 20A. But it would partially melt down. When id inspect it or even check it with and ohm meter itd seem good. However it wouldnt let enough juice flow most time to crank and start the car. After a week of searching and starting to blame the ecu it finally popped and revealed itself. Itd do jus that crank with no spark. It wuldnt even sputter with a sniff of ether. Hope you find the problem soon.

It will be obvious. It's a little magenta one (not blue) but it will blow the same.

Did you check the 3 separate connectors that were unplugged under the tank when you changed the plugs? I’m just thinking.
