Question about 1991 Suzuki RGV 250 M

1 Answer

Starting problem I try to start my bike and the engine just turns, because of the age i changed the plugs and wires. the bike starts fine if i put some stater fluid/gas directly into the carbs(carbs are spotless inside). I also took the fuel line off of the carbs and of course gas everywhere and i even turned the pressure way down on and air compressor and sprayed the air into the fuel intake on the carb and gas sprayed out of the top of the carb, so i know the jets are not clogged. So is my fuel pump just not producing enough pressure to do the job or is the problem elsewhere?

If the motorcycle has sat more than 6 months with reformulated gas, it more likely has jets plugged up and will need a carb cleaning. Plug jets will cause sputtering and bogging down when the engine is loaded.

Well I just bought a kawasaki kx 250f it is very hard to start runs fine after it is running but once it shuts off hard to start also it is tough to find neutral

i had a similar problem with mine starting and re starting hard. my problem was the vavle clerance on the exhaust side. the vavle was so tight it took me 20 minutes or more to start it. once it fires ran fine, a littel hotter than usal. i check the vavles for the proper clearance i adjusted them to manufacture settings put a new plug in and vroom started in less than 5 kicks. also check the acc pump diphram they tend to dissolve with age and use one they got bad or get thin the bike will not run right. once you have checked all of this also change the pluge, always helps to have a fresh plug.

hope that gets you started any more qustions let me know

My 1991 jeep wrangler will not start. Engine turns over fine. The engine is getting fuel and has fire to the spark plugs. I have already changed the distributor (cap and pop up coil), plugs, plug wires,...

Check the timing to ensure it is correct.
Check each cylinder for the proper compression.
Try starting the jeep with some starting fluid. If it starts with the starting fluid, you may have a few bad injectors, or faulty injector wiring harness.

I had a problem with my Sportster in a similar situation.
When I opened the trailer the air was warm and the bike was cold. It got condensation on the coil and would not start.
Replacing the leads fixed it.
Maybe that is what happened to yours.

Hello Maria to remove the spark plugs you will need a 3/8th drive13/16th spark plug socket with universal and a extension.removing the spark plug,first pull the plug caps off then use the socket wrench turn the spark plugs counter clockwise to remove and install the new plugs.turn the plugs until they are seated and tighten them 1/4 to 1/2 turn.
also depending on the age of the plug wires and caps the caps you can replace yourself the wires you may want to find some one to do that for you. with age they will start to leak and loose voltage to your plugs

Fault with electric start on my Suzuki GSF 250 Bandit

Check that the clutch is in, kick stand up, and neutral light ablaze. Then try your start button. When you had it running and hit the button, the starter engaged at a slower speed then the bike engine was turning, which led to the stall. The stall means your starter works. If the starter works when the engine is running then it is wiring. Check your kick stand wiring along with the clutch wires which plug in on the handlle bar or where the clutch cable enters the engine.

Kawasaki zzr600e wont start

If you are not getting the starter to wind after pressing the start switch check these probs.Have you checked the fuses for the ignition switch? Check all fuses. Track the wiring from switch and check all plugs and connections.  Turn ignition on and try clutch starting the bike to see if the motor will run once it is cranked over. If you need to bump it, make sure all your connections and wiring are all making good contact. You must conduct a process of ilimination in order to rectify the fault. good luck.

Changing the rod bearings won't have any effect on the trucks ability to start or not start. Since you said you did not take motor out or take off head, I'm also going to assume you didn't mess with the timing belt/chain. Also I'm assuming the engine will crank, just not start. If not try turning the engine by hand, If it dosen't move something got messed up when the bearings were replaced. If the engine cranks, pull any spark plug wire off the plug insert a screwdriver, hold about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch from the engine block and crank the engine (hold onto the plastic handle) there should be a spark. If there is a spark remove a plug and check the distance between the electrode and the terminal. If no spark do the same thing with the coil wire. If coil wire sparks you have a problem between the coil wire and the individual plug wires (distributor, cap rotor, etc). If coil does not spark you have a problem with the primary side of the ignition circuit (ignition switch, wiring, primary windings of the coil, etc). If the engine still does not run try spraying (just a little) starting fluid or choke cleaner into the intake (past the air filter). If engine starts you have a fuel problem. You would need to check out you carburetor, fuel pump, etc. If after spraying starting fluid into the intake, the engine still dosen't start, remove any duct work and filter going into the intake. (this will eliminate any restriction in the intake). Try starting, if still dosen't start, remove the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold and try starting, this will eliminate any exhaust restriction. If engine still dosn't start you are going to have to do compression tests on the engine, and or cylinder leakage tests, and or vacuum tests on the engine. If you get to the point where you have to try these tests you are looking at something wrong internally with the engine (timing jumped out of adjustment, no compression, etc) Sorry I couldn't give you a simple straight forward answer but I hope this gets you up and running.
