Question about 2005 Benelli Tornado Tre 900 LE

1 Answer

Can keep the go power

Ok Ive got a problem where I can all of a sudden only start my bike with starter fluid and then it runs for almost exactly 2 miles and then slowly runs with less and less power till it finally stalls. I originally thought this would be a gas related problem so I put dry gas in and then I put in more later (way too much overall) and I checked my inlinbe fuel filter which is clear and obviously gas is running though. I also am pretty sure the carburator is functioning because it runs the starter fluid though. The other thought that my friend suggested is the pick up coil

Which I can test I guess but I dont even really know what it does really. Any how I havent actually looked at the bike since I got it home just hoping you all had some good insight. why do u have to put in starter fluid? or do you mean you prime the carbs? it ought to start by itself w/ just the gas in the tank. u could be having an issue w/ the petcock or if its a vac operated petcock then its probably a tank cap vent blocked. ,,

No fuel or no spark. Quick test: spray some starter fluid into air intake and try to start it. If it runs and then dies, you've got spark but no fuel. If the bike quit with no prior symptoms, check spark plug wire not knocked loose, fuel filter clogged. (You do have gas, right?)

Car died while stooped at light

if it won't run on starting fluid then you have a no spark issue. i'd check spark out of the coil to the distributor. you could have a bad ignition control module or coil

If you are talking about a remote starter ... with a key fob ... what were you thinking when you put this on a dirt bike?

If you are talking about the sart solenoid, jump it with a piece of heavy wire to see if that is the problem.

hi ,
Try to disconnect the battery terminals as well as the starter terminals .
refit them and make sure all are tight . All loose connections will not help and will cause false contacts and therefore loss of power to crank the starter motor over .

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, start with the clutch lever pulled in and/or the side stand folded up.

Offhand, check the 2 wires going to the starter relay. 1 should have a +12 while the other must go ground when starting.

Postback results of above tests.

Incidentally, a 98 XJ600N could be pushed started.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Starting fault

There are two safety switches that you may need to test. 1) Neutral safety switch- this switch is what tells the bike that it's in neutral and allows the starter to engage. 2) Kickstand safety switch- this switch will not allow the bike to run in gear if the kickstand is down. My initial guess is the neutral safety switch. If the neutral safety switch is bad, then you will not be able to start the bike with the kickstand down because the bike thinks that it's in gear (even if in neutral). This also may explain why the initial intermitent problem of not starting when warm since the metal contacts will expand and possibly not make contact when warmed up. Are you trying to start the bike with the kickstand up or down? If it were the kickstand safety switch, the bike would probably start okay and then die when you put it in gear.

Starter keeps running

i would say in my opinion and im not exactly sure but the gear from the starter motor connecting to the flywheel is locking in place my best bet would be to check this gearing system out and try doing a service on your bike like fluid changes
