Hi Anonymous, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections especially the negative cable at "BOTH" ends
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.

It was as simple as a fuse. The high beam fuse is tied into the starter! Thanks for all of the suggestion!

So I just had this exact problem about an hour ago. I wondered about the starter, crankshaft, etc. but discarded them for the simplest explanation: battery.
I'm sure you've all noticed how absurdly easy it is to mistakenly miss the steering lock and put the parking lights on. Odds are you may have done this without realizing (I must've even if I don't remember). Jumper cables are the answer.
If you've never jumped a bike, here's the skinny: 1) Make sure the car you're jumping from is, and remains, off. 2) Connect the cables as normal; black to black, red to red. 3) Let the bike sit for a minute then start her up. 4) If you can, take her for a ride to get the charge back up.
If this doesn't work, then you may very well have more serious issues. Hope this helps, ride safe!

Clutch discs are stuck, put the bike in gear, not running, pull in the clutch and push the bike back and forth to break the clutches loose. Once they break loose start the engine put the bike in gear, hold the front brake, and slip the clutch a little to remove any built up or stuck crud on the plates.

in a situation where a vehicle is started while in gear and the clutch not engaged the vehicle will jump very dangerous. So for safety the manufacturer has implimented 2 safety switches located by the clutch and brake pedal if the pedal is not pressed thereby activating the switch the car wont start. Check if the switch connections are ok sometimes they get stuck or get dislodged and also sometimes need to be readjusted

I have a yamaha virago 250 1996 model. Ok, now. I take the stand off. The engine switch is in Run position. When I press the clutch and put my bike in gear , and try to start it, it does not start...why ?...


The clutch master/lever has a safety switch that tells the bike if the clutch lever is in (no power to rear) or out (power to rear). After almost 30 years this switch may have failed, making the bike think that the clutch is engaged regardless of lever position. If you have a multimeter you can test the switch yourself. Since the bike starts properly in neutral (also a safety feature) then the clutch lever switch is your most likely problem. Your bike might also have a side stand switch like mine. It functions much the same way, if the side stand is down and the bike put in gear it will kill the engine.

2003 KLR 650 won't start.


The clutch also must be engaged there is a safety interlock on the kickstand and on the clutch handle.
Also the kill switch by the throttle (red rotating switch) must be on run it also prevents the starter from working.

The usual point of failure is the interlocks, you can unplug the connector from the interlock switches and jump them to test if they are working.
the clutch switch is by the pivot end of the clutch handle.
The kickstand switch is under a plastic cover about halfway up the frame, there is a cable like a bicycle brake or shift cable that runs from the kickstand to the switch under the cover.
I have a wiring diagram for this bike, if you still have problems let me know and we can run thru troubleshooting procedures.

Checked fuses all of them r good the bike will not start has new battery


Check the safety switches, specifically the neutral detect and clutch safety.
If the bike thinks it's in gear, or that the clutch isn't pulled in, it won't start!
Check the wiring to the starter relay.

Hi!!!!! i have an kawasaki zx6r 1998 and it dosent want to start , i started it 2 days ago, but today it dosent want i charged battery, and when i push start button it dosent do nothing, i checked coil...


Check the clutch, neutral and side stand safety interlocks.
Double check that the bike is in neutral, and the clutch is pulled in when trying to start the bike.
If the bike is in gear with the side stand down, the bike cuts off all ignition.
If the clutch isn't pulled in, the starter won't engage.
Check all these safety interlock switches, and make sure you are in neutral with the clutch in when trying to start the bike.
