I have a yzf600r. it started yesterday. but then i put in a new battery and niw it won't start. Its like its not getting any gas.

so I take it that the 600 is turning over with the new battery. Did you check the fuel lever? You might have turned it to off when you dropped in the new battery. Otherwise start trouble shooting, Is it getting spark? Take one of the spark plugs out and put the lead wire back on it then touch the bottom the spark plug to metal and turn it should see some spark.Do this to all spark plugs. Then on to fuel, take the fuel feed line off, turn it over and see if fuel sperts out of the line. If all thats good, I would remove the carb. and clean it. Hope this kinda helps :)

We just put in a new starter but when we connect the battery sparks come out

Two causes of this (if sparking occurs when sarting is attempted):
(1) teeth on new starter not properly meshed to flywheel
Cause: installation of new starter not securely or properly bolted down.
(2) new starter motor itself is faulty right out of the box.
Cause: poor manufacturing/rebuilding quality control by starter mfr/rebuilder.

Also, if sparking occurs when battery connected (and the sparks come from the battery connector),
then the starter is improperly wired.

So, where are the sparks coming out of?

Put new battery in a month ago, now when i turn key on nothing happens, no dash indicator lights come and nothing happens when key is turned on

Possible errors are either incomplete or non-load generator ground connections between the engine and car body.

I put new spark plugs in along with new wires. i also put a new fuel filter and it wont turn over idk if it is the ignitionmodual or the coils?????

There's a difference if it turns over, but doesn't start, or if it doesn't turn over at all. If it does not turn over at all, the problem may be as simple as the battery not properly connected, or up to the starter needing replacement. If it does turn, or rotate when you crank it, but it doesn't run, then you may want to re-check the correct connection of the wires, meaning connected in the right sequence. If you verify that they are in fact connected properly, then you may want to check to make sure they have spark. you can do this by taking one of the wires off 1 spark plug, inserting a screwdriver in it, then, as a friend tries to start the car, you bring the screwdriver close to a metal part. if you see a spark, then the problem may be fuel related.

81 toyota pick-up. No spark

Check to make sure the main fuse is good. Sometimes those blow when you short out a wire from the battery to the ground on the car *like when an alternators live wire hits ground on the car.
On a 1981 Toyota pickup, im unsure of where it is located, but sometimes they are located in the fuse box, as a big fuse usually a 100 amp or 80amp fuse.. Sometimes they are located along a ground connected to the engine and the frame of the car. This could make it just crank and not start.
Check also to make sure that the engine is grounded, by taking a test light and connecting it to the positive side of the battery, and testing the metal around the motor. Sometimes grounds can break, or when shorted out they can melt. If the motor is not grounded then it will not start. and will just crank.
Hope this helps a little - Jarett

Car won't start after sitting parked for over a year

hi! there,
even how new your battery was, there some other component cars have in starting your car,battery is just one factor
the ignition system need to check for proper maintenance.since most of them now are elctronically system.this where starting came when you turn your key the current flow mostly in ignition system until your spark plug ignite and produce combustion upon cranking your engine if all are in full condition your engine run,in your case ther are some faulty part and wiring needed to check.
try to clean your ignition coil some impurities block current flow.
check your ignition module most terminals acid may jump current flowing,check all cables that connect distributor to spark plug replace faulty cable,spurk plug clean contact point of spark plug if necessary replace,tighten connection of your starter motor couple to your fly wheel maybe theres a loosen connection,internally spark plug becoming wet had hard the current flow due to leak on rocker arm valve seat,oil is leaking check this out,if all are quite ok
star your engine.regards and have a nice day
