Question about Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 95 CBR600f3 that won't start while the kickstand is down. Is this normal or is there a sensor that may have gone out?

When I have the kickstand up the bike starts and runs fine, but if I don't have the kickstand up the bike won't start at all. A friend of mine has a bike similar to mine and his will start while the kickstand is down.

Thgis is normal ... it is a safety interlock. Put the side stand in the storage position before you start and you will be just fine.

SOURCE: 05 honda vtx 1800 runs rough

Your carb idle pins/needle valves are either fouled or worn/damaged. Or floats that control your equilibrium for gas distribution throughout the carb array are not working together with valves/pins. Has this bike set a spell, at least once for too long of an interval? I'd pull the whole darn carb setup and inspect/clean, then reinstall exactly to specs. Ask for the very best teardown/rebuild cleaner for carbs at the parts store! Betcha a little elbow grease and a perfect dismantle and clean, then rebuild is all you need! Been there----Did dat!

SOURCE: 1998 Honda Goldwing will not start nothing.

Sort of sounds like a Twilight Zone kind of problem doesn't it. I would have the battery checked for an internal dead short. This is something that happens on odd occasions and can happen even to a new battery. Yea, the little lights will work ( they do not draw much juice ), but the starter motor draws a lot of juice and a shorted battery just ain't got it. Also check the wiring harness connections. One loose connection can cause bunches of trouble.

SOURCE: 96 cbr f3. removed gauges now bike will not run right.

its probably put the bike in limp mode which limits the bikes performance while being diagnosed for problems.they cant be read now because you have removed the readout from the system. the meter in these bikes are an integral part of the entire elec. system. when you reinstall the meter, it will probably flash a "code" to show the problem it encountered. unhook the battery for about 5 min. then rehook and start bike. after warmup, it should run ok if all systems are goes.

2003 KLR 650 won't start.


The clutch also must be engaged there is a safety interlock on the kickstand and on the clutch handle.
Also the kill switch by the throttle (red rotating switch) must be on run it also prevents the starter from working.

The usual point of failure is the interlocks, you can unplug the connector from the interlock switches and jump them to test if they are working.
the clutch switch is by the pivot end of the clutch handle.
The kickstand switch is under a plastic cover about halfway up the frame, there is a cable like a bicycle brake or shift cable that runs from the kickstand to the switch under the cover.
I have a wiring diagram for this bike, if you still have problems let me know and we can run thru troubleshooting procedures.

2010 harley davidson changed battery and now won't start


Put it in neutral and pull the clutch in. Kickstand up and Killswitch in the normal position. Turning the key off and back on will reset the FI Light. Make sure that battery is fully charged first. Low voltage might not fire the injectors. Let us know how it goes.

Heck, toggle that killswitch a half dozen times.

Chevrolet venture fuel level sensor on the dashboar not working


The sending unit in the gas tank is bad, at least that is the case 95% of the time. The GM sending units have really gone down hill in the last several years. There is a wiper that wears through on them and then it won't read the gas level. You will have to drop the tank to replace it. Please rate my answer so I get points awarded for it.
