Check battery for full charge and tight cables.use test light check for power to starter when pushing start button.if there is, check starter. if none check for power to start solenoid on small wire going to it w/ testlight when you press start.if none, check start button, & wiring.if youi have power to it,but no start, take large screwdriver & make contact between both solenoid cable posts,make sure bike is in neutral. should crank, confirming that solenoid is bad.also, even if the solenoid has no power going to it to energize it you can still use the screwdriver trick to get bike to crank.

Legend tt cuts out when put in gear


My bike cut out after a short time when the choke was released when warm. I changed the crank position sensor and did all relevant checks. took it to a Triumph dealer who took three weeks to repair the bike. They said that it turned out to be a perished carb' diaphragm which let the needle drop when as vacuum decreased when the revs dropped as the choke was returned.

Everyday when i leave my gilera runner vx i have to let it warm up as if i try drive straight away it bogs and cuts out what is the problem?


The choke maybe cutiing out too soon or it is the air temperature that is cool.
Let it warm up for a few minutes before riding off.

Sounds like the idle circuit in the carb is restricted. The engine is running on the choke only. When the engine reaches a certain temp the fuelthat does get is more readily burned allowing you to back off the choke. The choke probsbly can't be completely opened? right? Fuel quality is also something to consider Oil content in fuel affects combustion temps and volatility. _good luck_Ned_

My 1994 xr6004 has good compression and has had a new top end, it runs awesome and kicks over fairly easy when cold and runs/drives great, but as soon as it warms up and you shut it off or it stalls out,...


The fuel in the carburetor float chambers is boiling while it sits, and flooding the engine. If it has a fuel petcock turn that off, and let the bike stop through fuel starvation. Then there will be no fuel in there to boil.

KTM 520EXC Starts with choke but you cannot take off choke


well you hit it right on the head there,, its the jets in the carb blocked up,,strip down carb and clean out all the jets with carb cleaner and compressed air dont go poking any thing into the jets as you will distroy them that way,,, another way of clearing the jets out that you could try first is,,,take off the air filter and start the engine up on choke in needs be,,rev the motor up high and slam your hand over the carb intake,,removing it just before the motor cuts out do this a good fuw times and it some times??? only some times clears the carb jets out for you

Bike wont kick start or idle , it will coast


first drain the carby, then set your air mixture screw 2 turns out, from the fully turned in position. The starting proceedure is as follows, when the engine is COLD, turn on fuel, pull on the choke fully, and kick the engine over. DO NOT use any throttle, when the engine is cold, and the choke is on. Remember Choke on, NO throttle.
When warm, no choke, and a little throttle when kicking.

Is your power valve clean, and moves freely? And don't forget to make sure the air filter is squeaky clean. How does the plug color look?
