My 1997 900ss/sp will not start. I'm new to this bike so I'm wondering if there are some known issues to look for... Here are the symptoms: 1) Engine turns over fine and strong but does not fire up 2) I smell gas 3) I am getting a spark 4) After letting it sit and dry out a bit tried again. It backfired and flames came out of the exhaust pipe - Thanks in advance for any suggestions!Can't tell from the post whether or not it's been sitting a while. If it has even for as little as a couple months, the first thing to do is drain the fuel and get some fresh stuff in there, float bowls too if you can. From my experience, they are sensitive to stale fuel. Wouldn't hurt to throw in new plugs too and of course charge the battery.,,,

Hi, Anonymous check your clutch adjustment and I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Aprilia but despair not for a mere $10 you can download another one. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

My Suzuki HD 125 wont start even new battery and new SP installed


Can you hear the sound of starter motor? If you can't it might be a blown fuse. Shor circuit or the circuit is broken. If you can hear but the engine is not starting, get your ignition cable checked and the spark plug as well.

Rgv250 starting problem


Iv had problems starting my RGV too. Try changing both spark plugs. If that doesn't do it you should give the mechanic who restored it a call, may be a stiff carb slider on only 1 cylinder

Starting. Turns over but won't fire


Can you do a hydro check on the battery? Should be near 1200. How about the volts? Should be very near 12. When it is running, what kind of volts do you get. Should be 13 or more but not above 15.

Id check the solinoid (sp). They do burn ... When it clicks, check voltage on the starter side. (the starter side will be dead when the start switch is NOT pressed.) If you have the same as on the battery side, id look at the starter (if you can find it ;-)

I hope this helps ... Hope you get it going.

thanks

1995 900 sp clutch does not disengage when lever


hi,this may help,it sounds like your clutch plates are stuck together,this is quite common on bikes that have been parked up for a while,mine does it ocasionally,i fix it by getting the bike moving and crash starting it,once you have got it running and moving with the bike in the highest gear you can get it into(you can change up and down the gearbox without the clutch and not do any damage)simply pull the clutch lever in and roll on and off the throttle a couple of times and the clutch should disengage...hope this helps
