    Hi Mendez,

    You sound like your allowing too much fuel into the intake. I do not know if you have Injection or Carburator. If you have a carb, then adjust the fuel down. Since I do not know your carb, I cannot say where to look. If it is a needle valve screw, close it all the way and open it 1.5 turns.

Honda 2000 sabre vt1100 has hard time with cold start & if the choke is used at all it floods.

Change the spark plug/s and wire/s. If there is not enough spark, the engine will have a time starting and may flood.

I have just bought a 2002 Daytona. The previous owner said it had just run out of fuel and wouldn't start although at the time it smelt as if it was flooded. Got it home and put in fuel but still wont...

remove spark plug and see if it is soaked after cranking, also look at the plug to see if it has been
burning clean , or all black covered with carbon, if it is black then change it . also check if it is
burning clean , should be white and looking normal, also look a the gapping , set to spec if closed
or open to much . while you have it out place back in plug wire and rest it up against head and
turn over a couple of times, looking for spark to jump from plug to head metal . if no spark try new
plug before installing . this maybe a simple fix. if this does not fix problem ? write back and i will
go to the next steps.

My aprilia 125 moped will not start, there is a spark at the plug, stinks of flooded fuel, it's soaking the plug when kicked over, what's problem?

Sounds like the engine is flooded with gas.Turn the fuel off if you can.Remove the spark plug and move the wire away from the spark plug hole.Now turn the engine over like your trying to start it.See if gas comes out spark plug hole if yes engine is flooded.If it is flood that bad your exhaust will have fuel in it also.You should get a new spark plug before trying to start it again.If gas does not come out the plug hole.Install the new plug and try starting it with the fuel off.Hope this helps.

Hello Maria to remove the spark plugs you will need a 3/8th drive13/16th spark plug socket with universal and a extension.removing the spark plug,first pull the plug caps off then use the socket wrench turn the spark plugs counter clockwise to remove and install the new plugs.turn the plugs until they are seated and tighten them 1/4 to 1/2 turn.
also depending on the age of the plug wires and caps the caps you can replace yourself the wires you may want to find some one to do that for you. with age they will start to leak and loose voltage to your plugs

Hi, Cgallops108 and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirt or other foreign matter between float valve and its seat.
2. Float valve sticking.
3. Float valve and/or valve seat worn or damaged.
4. Float misadjusted.
5. Float cracked, leaky or damaged.
6. Excessive "PUMPING" of hand throttle grip.

Honda cbr 600 wont start

hi, each lead has the specific number on it. if you do this correctly then they genrally give you an idea to where the sit in the coils( the way they bend :-) ) also i believe the coils are better off been attached to the frame once you are sure leads are in corect order and possitioned correctly in the coils.i just presumed the coils neaded earthing. make sure battery is pleny charged as a bad battery can just hinder. it is also very easy to flood the bike so just check the plugs again. if they are unusually wet then dry them off and try again . otherwise maybe try cleaning all electics.

hope this somehow helped

Engine wont fire up

Do you have fresh gas in the bike? Try changing the plugs with new ones and check for spark. You can do this by putting the new plugs on the plug wire and grounding it to the head on the engine crank the motor over you should see a bright blue spark. Check one plug at a time. No spark check the ignition wires and coils. As for the oily plugs it could be they are just fouled caused by either flooding the motor while trying to start, bad plugs, week coils, bad gas, poorly adjusted carb's. I would start with the plugs and work my way back to the carbs. Still fouling the plugs after all that start checking the engine, ie compression check ect.
