Bill,
What you are describing sounds like an ignition coil breaking down as soon as it come up to temperature. It could also be as simple as a spark plug and most probably is. I tend to disagree with the suggestion you received about the contact points (if your motorcycle actually has them). Generally points will make a mess out of starting and if they are failing wouldn't wait 20 minutes to let you know. I'm going to say spark plug(s) (change 'em both) then possibly a coil OR the high tension lead is shorting against the block or some part of the frame. Now I can't say names or someone will get upset but a German made motorcycle doesn't generally work to well with spark plugs made in America. Been in the Recreational business for a lot of years and if there is one spark plug that just works it's found in every Honda MC and of course is made in Japan. Hope you picked up on were i was trying to lead you ;-). Cheers have a great day, hum you riding your motorcycle and I'm up to my bum in snow and getting another foot of the stuff :-(

Tim,
I would look at three main things first. Compression, spark and fuel. Once in awhile us mechanics can get a "hunch" of what's wrong but overlook some common problems. I would invest in a compression tester and a spark tester. Both are fairly cheap and available at any parts store. Simply unscrew spark plug and srew in compression tester and turn starter over. Observe the reading, do this for all cylinders. Then put plugs back in and install spark tester. Turn starter over and observe spark. If you can get your bike started again, check compresiion and spark when your unit fails. This should put you in the right direction. Hope this helps!

07 blade cut out on road after refuelling


Check that fuel is getting to the cylinders by removing a spark plug after turning it over. If the plug is wet then fuel is getting through. if not check the Fuel tap is turned on and that the fuel filter isn't blocked

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:

2. Spark plug cables in bad condition or leaking.
3. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
7. Intermittent short circuit due to damaged wire insulation.
8. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.

My bmw f650 just cut and i cant seem to find the problem.my mechanic checked the plus,fuses and only managed to get it crunking but wont start.what could be causing this?and some times the fuses get burnt.


Pull one of the spark plugs and hold it against the engine with a non-conductive tool and have someone crank the engine.Is there spark?No spark indicates a possible timing problem.If you have spark squirt some fuel down each cylinder,put the plugs back in and crank the engine.If it barks you have a fuel delivery problem and that on a BMW means bad fuel pump or plugged injectors.There really isn't anything else on the bike.You don't say which fuses burn out,but let me know if its the fuel pump because that would make all kinds a sense.Good luck and hopefully good riding
