Hi, Jnseb9073 if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 3 years or older when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

1999 Yamaha 1200GP Wave Runner wont' start. It has sat for about 2 years. I have new battery, new plugs and new gas, it turns over but won't start, any suggestions?


Sounds like the carbs are gummed up from the old gas sitting in them. Remove the carbs, disassemble, clean with a carb cleaner, and reassemble.

I have a 2000 duc monster. I'm having a vapor lock issue, gas boiling, backfiring, acting like it's exhausted of fuel etc...I live in bfe Texas, I'm an alright mechanic but I need help on how...


Hi, Docwahn2 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel boiling in fuel line due to extremely high outside temperatures and unprotected fuel lines missing convoluted tubing cover routed too close to cylinders and or heads.
2. The gas cap is not venting properly.
3. Fuel tank vent line blocked, plugged, kinked, or smashed.

2003 chevy truck wont stay started. Put a new bat in and it ran for about 5 miles and dead. Waited a few seconds and drove few feet and dead. It will start and sit and idle fine until you push on gas...


Start with the simple, if the fuel filter has not been replaced. There may be a good chance that the filter may have gotten to the end of it's life and needs to be replaced. The fuel filter should be replaced 15,000 miles or one a year.

Good luck and keep me posted.

No spark at plugs


Is there power to the power packs. If not trouble shoot backward from there. Check the plugs on your: crank angle sensor, the cam sensor and the clutch switch. Another problem could be fuel, if the brain doesn't sense the flow of fuel it won't send a spark to the power packs.

Also check the 2003 forum at miata.net there is a world of knowledge over there about Miatas and MX5s
