Bike not firing

Just got back from riding at Red River park today and got stranded out in the back section. I was going down a steep section and dropped the bike on it's right side. Picked it back up and lost balance and it dropped on the left side. After that it wouldn't start. I coasted down the rest of the way and tried to bump start it

No go. When I got to the bottom I keep trying to start it. The starter had good power and would turn it over but it wouldn't fire. After trying a couple of times I would turn it off and let it set. I did notice that I am not hearing the normal buzz that the fuel injector makes. I don't see any damage on either side and don't see any loose wires. We finally got the bike back to camp around 5:30 this evening and got home. Has anyone else had this problem? What can I check? What next? P.S. It has been a great day, and got better. When we stopped to clean the bikes at the car wash, I forgot to put my boots back in the trailer. Anyone have a size 12 that they aren't using???,Under the left side cover you will see two relays, one is a fuel pump relay the other a fan relay. Try changing them around and see if that works it could be a faulty relay. Some auto shops sell them, if you replace it or just refitting it seel the relay with silicon to stop water getting in.If it is not this look at the fuses under the seat are not loos or blowen.,,,

I live in eersteriver I work in strad and wants to know if there's a bus going that way

Hello, Patricia -

Clarification: Do you mean Eerste River and Strand in the Cape Town, South Africa area?

If so . . .

I did not find information about bus service between the 2 locations.

I did find a MetroRail schedule for travel between Eerste River and Strand. This is the link to the MetroRail home page:

On that page, in the lower right corner, you should find the Travel Information link. Click or tap on that link. That will bring you to the Timetables page.

If you scroll down the Timetables page, near the bottom, will be the link to the PDF document (Adobe Reader software needed, free) for Area North, a route which includes stops at Eerste River and Strand.

I am answering from the USA and am a librarian by profession. I found this information by using the following search strategy with my favorite search engine, Google, and using quotation marks as shown:
transportation "Eerste River" Strand

That search strategy brought me to this web page:

It also brought me to the MetroRail website.

I suspect if you had spoken with someone working in your employer's Human Resources / Personnel Office, he / she would have been able to direct you to the proper public transportation information, as well.

Another good source of answers for all kinds of questions: your local public library. Find your local public library here:

By the way, is intended as a website for asking and answering questions on how to go about REPAIRING _THINGS_. It is not the best website for asking questions about public transportation in South Africa.

Best wishes.

When I try to start my 1994 WR250, 2 stroke, it takes a million kicks, or 3 or 4 good pushes down a steep hill, popping the clutch. When I do get it started, once it warms up it will idle, and start back...

Sounds like a combination of leaking fuel tap and old fuel.

When you park it overnight or longer, pull the fuel hose off the carb , and drain the carb bowl.
So when you next ride it, reconnnect the fuel line, turn on the fuel tap long enough to fill the carb, 10 secs,then turn it off to start the bike, turn it back on when the bike starts.
even if you replace the fuel tap this process can help.

I have a broken spoke on the back wheel of my bike, and the wheel wobbles from side to side. Is it dangerous to ride up a steep hill, I need to get home, and am wondering if it would be best to walk it or...

This depends mostly on your weight. Yes, it's safer to walk, but if you are a small person, and you can ride the bike on a level surface (like a parking lot) without the wobble increasing, then try pedaling hard in the parking lot. If that works ok, then you can probably get by. Don't ride fast. Don't ride down a steep hill. If you have hand brakes, and your front brakes are good, then don't use the rear brakes. But don't go over the handle-bars by using the front brakes hard! If you are not a small person, then walk the bike. Good luck.

Sounds like you are tripping the main breaker for some reason. This breaker is designed to trip when the maximum current load is exceeded. After a few minutes, it resets so you stand a better chance of not being stranded.

There is something on your bike causing an excessive load on the electrical system. Have you added any new accessories or lights recently? If so, you could have exceeded the maximum current load for your electrical system.

If not, I'd suspect a chaffed wire somewhere. These can be very difficult to find. I'd start by looking where the wires come from beneath the tank and go into the front end. The wires flex a lot here and are subject to break.

Electrical problems can sometimes be very difficult to solve

Good Luck

It should fire right up. You won't know till you try. We had a water pump running on the dock jetting poles down in the mud. The pump vibrated off the dock and in it goes, running, I grabbed it by the hose and pulled it up, It fired right back up and kept on going. Never missed a beat. We thought it was going to **** in water and never run again. Honda's, can't beat em. Hope this helps.

My bike quit while riding home the other day.

start of breaking down of HT coil, if breaksdown while warm, leave for a while and start back up, it's HT coil, sounds like you should just carry on and see if it gets worse, then you'll know. unusual for a sudden complete breakdown so you shouldn't be stranded.

695 ride hight

I'd start 15mm higher and work up 5 mm at a time from there. You'll know when you get to the point you don't like. Are you going to do anything with the front? If you do you'll want to make adjustments one end at a time. I never lengthened my stand. The bike leans at a pretty steep angle, but it's a non issue to me.
