Best bet would be to empty the fuel left in it then buy some fuel stabilizer and refill fill the tank with good gas also check the battery and fuses.

Electric fine bike wont start


Many motorcycles that are newer have a built in safety device that keeps the bike from starting when the battery is too low to keep from burning out components from running low on voltage. Can you hook a battery charger to it and have it start or is it just turning over and not starting? Without any details about your problem it is hard to troubleshoot. Has the bike been ridden recently, has it been setting so the carb is gummed up, is it fuel injected, does it have an electric fuel pump?

My suzuki gsxr 750 sat all winter and i didnt winterize it at all. the battery died... i charged it and my bike just wont start. It cranks over just won.t start. What should i do?


check spark plugs,check for spark. check fuel is good. possible needle and seat gummed up in carb float bowl. disasemble and clean with brake or carb cleaner.do not change float level. re assemble ,you can use the cleaner to help to fire the motor with a shot through the carb. make sure you cleaner says flammable. good luck.

Let bike sit over winter it starts but then cuts off after about 2min


it's a safety feature of the bike, if the ECU senses that the bike is not being ridden it automatically shut off.

My kymco xciting 250 wont start. i have not ridden it over the winter. i have gassed it up and charged the battery. when i hit the starter the lights blink on the panel but it will not turnover.


Did you warm up your Kymco during winter? If not then your first priority is to have your battery professionaly measured for cranking power capacity or get a new one..

1992 ZXR 250 Ninja locked ignition & brakelight stuck on


Try jiggling the handle bars as you turn the key to relieve the pressure off the ignition lock. The kawasaki's have one position past the off "Lock" position that is called the "Acc" this will leave your brake light on. So the key switch goes "Acc", "Lock", "On". Make sure your key is in the Lock position and not the Accesory position
