Came home from work this morning with bike running normally. Put it in garage and went to start it this afternoon. Turns over strongly but won't fire. Seems like it's not getting fuel but not sure. 2001 model. Any ideas? Thanks.

Crankshaft Position Sensor. Shuts the bike down, injectors will not fire and so on.

Are you sure you counted 9 short and not 8 short. If it is 8 then it's the camshaft sensor and that has been reported before. If it is a 9 for sure then you have one of 3 things wrong. The crankshaft position sensor has died, or the connections to it are bad, or the ECM has crapped itself. I'll see if I can find you a picture of it. The crank sensor doesn't fail very often. Was this bulletin performed on it?

OK, if you look at that service bulletin, check to see if your VIN is in the range and it shows you where the engine block should have been punched with a dimple if it was done. If it does fall into the VIN range and the punch mark isn't there, then this could be a possibly cause of the crank sensor failure code.
