Remove the sparkplugs and ground them to the engine try to start check for spark at plug if sparking check for compression put your finger over plug hole try to start if it pops off check carb for gas (didnt say if it was running and then sat for a while) with spark and compression and good gas it should run if your finger dosent pop off then the problem is no valve movement to create compression(broken cam chain) that would allow the engine to roll over quickly or whirr as you said check these things and let us know

Ran out of gas this morning, filled tank, killed battery trying to start it, jumped it, ran fine for 4 miles then started cutting out, now it won't turn over at all,... Ant suggestions


Hi Mike:
Since you've solved the gas problem, it looks like you're just dealing with a bad battery.
Try getting a jump with boosters to get it home.
Then check the battery......... fluid level....... Will it take a charge...... Will it hold a charge.
are the terminals and connections all good?
All the fun stuff.
Enjoy

Give it some time. charge it, unplug it and start it. Then when it is empty, charge it again unplug and switch on.
repeat this several times,. If it does not change, could be the battery is charged to dead. or a strange spike on the power line killed the tablet.

I have had over 20 bikes over the last 44 years and never had a battery last longer than 4yrs. Im guessing the battery needed to be replaced anyway. Did you check to see if the switch on the kick stand safty was stuck? What is going on with the emergency kill switch, is it sticking? I would check the connections to the starter and the starter relay as well.

Suspect your battery won't hold a charge as it did when new. As they age, from repeated discharge & charge from normal start and stop, over time they don't charge as deeply. I think this is your problem. You can verify by charging it up, and taking car to local Autozone, Advance or any good auto parts store and have them load test your battery, that'll confirm or not. While there have them test your charging system - they do both FREE

Battery runs down when it's parked, any idea?


Hi!!

Batteries over time loose capacity to hold charge. You can jump start the vehicle in the morning and run around all day, but the next morning it won't have enough charge to start up.

Take vehicle to an AutoZone to have charging system and battery checked up at no charge. There are other autopart stores that also offer this free service to their customers..

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck!
