2006 Aprilia RS125 doesnt start

Hi Guys
Just purchased a second hand aprilia
Took the bike for a couple runs and everything was fine
because im new to riding I kept stalling it so I assume by pressing the starter button it would have drained the battery
next day the bike starts then dies.. i assumed it was the battery
now it just doesnt start. I have charged the battery, reset the clock and checked the battery voltage (it is @ 11.5, which is between 10 and 12 as per the manual) it makes this turning over sound but still doesnt start.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

     Just a stab in the dark.
     Its posable that its very flooded. Generally 2strokes like to cold start with full choke and throttle wide open. You may need to take the spark plug out and spin the engine over to get rid of the excess fuel. Then put it back in and try full throttle and no choke. Just try the full throttle thing first with the fuel turned off. I've  had to do this for 20 odd seconds on some bikes before getting even a "pop" out of them.

Hi .... Try switching the petrol off just prior to stopping the engine and start up again with the petrol OFF. There's enough petrol in the carb to start the bike. A good battery should show over 12 volts. Take the plugs out and give them a good clean or replace them. Is there a petrul pump fitted ? A two stroke needs to be ridden quite hard to maintain efficeincy, higher revs etc ........ let us know how you get on ?

Aprilia rs 125 starting problem


First check the battery to see its still fully charged. If it is do a voltage drop test between the battery and the starter to check for a bad relay or open circuit. If that checks out, you very likely have a bad starter/solenoid. I can explain how to do these tests if u need me to

Aprilia RS125 Help


Ive just bought a 2000 model RS 125 but my knowledge of bikes is pretty limited :/ The bike was running fine for a week with no problems at all but then the electric start doesnt want to work. I went through the manual and tried a couple of things (recharged the battery checked fuses cleaned spark plug etc) After I did this I still didnt have any luck but the electric start sounded abit more promising. I gave it another couple of goes and it started but when I let the throttle off the engine died and Im back to square 1. Anyone have any ideas about what could be the problem? I was talking to a friend and he said that I need to make sure that there is power going to the motor. He mentioned using a voltmeter to see if there was power going into it. He said that if there was no power then it would need a new electric start but if there was then I would need something else but I cant think what? Does this sound right to anyone?ou'll be able to tell if the ignition system is okay if there's a spark at the plug against the head with it removed when you kick it over (is there a kickstart lever on the bike?)/spin it over with the electric start. You could try bump starting it to see whether its just the electric starter motor or the ignition system itself that's the problem. If you do have a good spark then the bike should start with a bump push start/off the kicker (does it have one?)then you'll know whether the starter is the problem. My bike's kick-start only though so I'm no expert on starting Aprilia RS125's...Good luck. Don't waste money on new parts until you're sure of the problem though.,,,
