Check the carb for old petrol, drain off by unscrewing the brass bolt at the bottom of the carb, and allow new petrol to flow through on the starter. Petrol 'goes off' in time!

Backfiring and trouble starting


If you change the exhaust pipes, you have to sync the carbs (if you cant sync them, you have to change the carb jets), usually it is backfiring because the carbs are not in balance.

My husbands bike is always parks inside for winter, and when we parked it worked and drove. but when we tried starting it the battery was dead wouldnt even start when boosted. and we put a new battery and...


How long is the bike setting between when you park it and when you try to start it again? When you get ready to ride it, did you put a battery charger on it and bring the battery to a full charge?

When thinking it's getting to be time to ride, I recommend charging the battery with a charger disigned for ATV'S/motorcycles. When the battery is fully charged, take the charger off and test the battery with a load tester. If it passes the load test, attempt to start the bike. If it starts, and there is no further problems, Enjoy the ride till you park it long term again. I might suggest putting a battery tender and very slow trickle chat=rge on during storage

Hope this helps you

F-I is fuel injection system telling you to clean air-filter,fuel-filter and clean the fuel injector system. This is a good start.

Battery isnt charging.


any battery that has been completely flat can often get whats called sulphated plates if this happens the battery may never recharge and if it did take some charge it wont be much good after, the battery has had it realy the only this you could try is a very slow long charge but even this may not work,,,as a last dich try putting an asprin into each sell,,, yes thats right an asprin it dose work some times but for the life of me i dont know why, it just dose! as for whats the best battery,,,its all down to price at the end of the day, if its a cheapy type battery it wont last very long but il give you a good tip,,,,buy your self a 12 volt solar charger of say 2.5 watts a 1.5watt will just about do for a small battery,, when your going to lay the bike up the next time hook up the solar charger to the battery and forget it,,, the solar charger only needs daylight to work but sun light is better, and it will keep the battery toped up all winter i use them on my bikes (BMW 750cc 35amhr battery fitted) put on at the begining of winter took off in spring and they start first time every time,,,free power,,good huh!
