Question about 2001 Gilera Coguar

1 Answer

My Gilera Coguar is pig to start in the cold

Hi,

I am having a lot of difficulty starting my bike in the cold. I often flatten my battery trying to start it and have to use a booster. I was told that if I replaced the spark plug this could allieviate the problem. For a while it seemed better but now it's bad again.

If anyone has any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate them.

Cheers,

Jono

'87 Yamaha ProV 50: Will cold start and idle well. After a full throttle 1-2 min run will begin & continue running very rough near idle. Will die without addtl throttle imput.


Hi Roderick:
I'm not familiar with your engine configuration, but on some of the older bikes, vibration eventually can cause a wire to break in the coil. When the engine is cold, the wires make contact and it runs, but as soon as it gets hot, the connection is broken or compromised and the spark quits or drives you crazy.
Since your bike runs when cold and quits when hot, I'd be looking for electrical rather than fuel problems.
Hope this helps.

Malaguti Drakon 50 will not start on electric starter.


I do not know what a Malaguti Drakon 50 is BUT what are you saying?? Are you saying that the bike will not turn over or that it will turn over but even so it will not start with the bike electrical system and battery but that it will turn over with a booster battery but will not start with the booster battery or are you saying that it will turn over AND start with a booster battery attached??

Cold start difficulty


Hi, Mark probably all it needs is a proper tune up otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. Enrichner system plugged, not properly functioning or improperly operated.
2. Fuel overflow.
3. Restricted fuel supply.
4. Gas cap and or fuel tank not venting properly.
5. Plugged slow jet or passages.
6. Inlet system air leak.

could be either switch at fault, start by pulling the wire connectors off the rear switch to see if the light extinguishes, if so its the rear switch, if not its the front.

Try an auto electrician that does bikes, you can usually fit a relay/booster on starter motors to give it that initial boost, i tend to agree about your mechanics.

Tyre pressures front & rear


Look at the sidewall of both tires. There will be a 'MAX PSI' embossed on the tire. It will probably say Max 45 PSI. At 45psi the bike will ride like a rock. At 15psi it will ride really squirrely. Find a psi at which you feel the bike handles well and rides well. One rider may weigh 125 pounds and the next rider may weigh 300pounds. The best psi for each rider will be different due to weight.
