Bike Does Not Start

Tried to start my bike after sitting for about 3 weeks. Din't start so I put it on the chrager and it started and ran it for the whole day. A couple of days later same thing happened. When I try to start it all I get is a couple of clicks and then nothing. All my lights work though. Any help would be appreciated.

My motorcycle won't start no gas to the motor


Yes, battery, if weak can cause hard start, due to low rotation of the engine thus less compression build up at cranking.
You can also get the battery tested to it's ability of the cranking power via a battery tester which has volt meter and a button to test it with a load that of an eqivalent of a starter motor and the meter would show the indicator to red if weak and if ok it would show at green! hope this answer helps.

Start with the carbs. Old gas is a carb killer. Probably the lowest Jets in teh carb bowls are gummed up.

It sounds like the float needle valves are lletting gas run into the bowl,in turn running gas into the motor,and fouling the spark plugs. Have you noticed if the oil level seems to be going UP,or the fuel level is going down? Kawasaki motorcycles are prone to leaking needle valves in the carbs for some reason. And the longer it sits,the worse its going to get.Try this,...pull the spark plugs and see if they are wet with fuel.Then,unhook the coils,and spin the motor over with the plugs out.If it shoots raw fuel about a foot out of each or ANY cylinder,then that is your problem. JUST BE SURE TO DISABLE THE COILS BEFORE SPINNING MOTOR OVER,AND DONT BE CLOSE TO THE PLUG HOLES WHEN YOU SPIN IT OVER!!
Good Luck!

Okay i own 1996 suzuki gsxr750 now i have recently took everything off the bike to get parts painted tank,fairings, etc. while i was doing some minor things with the bike while it was completly stripped...


Bike batteries need full charge to start a bike, if there is less than full charge you can't even push start them. No click generally means no charge, the clicking sound is the solenoid working.
When you just start the bike and run it at idle, even fast idle. The battery does not get sufficient charge. What you take out of it to start it, is more than what you put back in it when you run it at idle. Bikes need to be at road speed to charge efficiently.
Also just sitting around they discharge, you may have an earth leak also. That causes your battery to discharge at a more accelorated rate than normal. If it has a clock in it, this bleeds off a small amount of power but still enough if it isn't being correctly charged.

I have a 97 f3 that sat for 6 weeks. Now it will not start. It turns over with no problem, but no spark. Ran great all summer without any issues. So far, I have replaced the spark plugs...what are the next...


well ive fixed this problem multiple times with my bike it definantly sounds like your carbs need to be cleaned, when u leave a bike sitting for a while and leave gas in the bike it will clog up your carberators once those are cleaned the bike should start right up

Fail to start


I think I would change the petrol in the tank as it may have become a bit stale. Also I would replace the battery.Make certain the replacement battery in fully charged before you try again.

'79 CB 750 won't start back up after running for a while


I would take the bike and or the battery to Sears or any large auto parts store and let them test the condition of the battery and the chargeing system.They will do it for free.Bike batterys seem to only last 2 or 3 years.

Started to get hard to start then got worse over 3


You need a cheap multi meter, measure the resistance on the wires going to the switches, with the clutch in, and with the stand up the resistance should be very low, if it is high then that switch is the problem. Also check the earth (negative) from the battery to the frame, if this is corroded your bike will be hard to start
