If you still havent started the bike yet from sitting.then i dont think the choke has anything to do with your problem.but ether way take the plugs out.I think your piston rings are frozen from sitting.did u winterrize it?with the plugs out pour a little auto trans fluid in each cylinder.very little.now crank the bike over to coat the cylinders. becareful it could be messy now let the bike sit overnight.the next day crank bike over again.but this time for a few tries.then install fresh plugs.and try to start it.p.s there will be white smoke from the transmission fluid. that will go away in a couple of minutes.then all should be good.

What kind of bike is it? If it's a moped i would recommend to clean your carb. Also shaking the fuel tank should help.

Maybe the points are a bit rusty from it being parked 6 months. Maybe you washed it then parked it and water got onto those special parts. Open The cover to the points and with a piece of fine emery cloth, sand between the contacts. Also maybe new spark plug. You barely just broke the bike in.

My fzr wont start. I checked the air filter, it had gas in but about six months ago it fell over in a trailer so i think it may be from that. The battery is good. It just wont turn over.


My bike has fallen over many times in the driveway lol but always starts after. Was the bike stored for six months? The gas may be bad. I would drain the tank and try fresh fuel. Also check your fuel line. IT May be pinched off from the fall restricting fuel flow. Also check the fuel filter, may be clogged from old gas too.

My bike hasnt been ridden for a few months, and you need to give it full choke to start and keep it going, it wont idle when the choke is depressed, It is A Vstar 650 Classic


was fuel left in the carburetors when you parked it your metering jets might be slightly clogged with varnish i dont recomend opening them yourself take it to a professional and next time you park it for an extended period of time close the fuel valve and leave the bike running until the carbs run out of gas "the bike will stop running when this happens"

My bike will not idle unless the choke is on just a little. i have 2000 1100 v star clasic


I had the same problem with my 2000 V Star 1100. It started out like yours, only running with the choke on a little bit. It got progressively worse. Turned out to be cracked rubber intake manifolds that join the carbs to the cylinders. It happens as your bike gets older. My rear manifold failed first, then six months later, the front one. Mine was bad enough that the bike quit firing on the front cylinder. You may have to take the carbs off to be certain, mine had failed on the inside around the vacuum port. It causes a loss of vacuum resulting in fuel not being pulled into the cylinder from the carb. It's not a hard job, just a pain ! If it hasn't happened already, look for your voltage regulator to fail as well. :o) Hope this helps, Geno

Don't use cold start.it will not solve your problem.Try running it with out the air cleaners ,it may be that you have an air intake problem and not getting the right Air / fuel mixture .

Bike wont start if not started for a couple of weeks very hard to get going cranks over but wont fire


If, at any point, your bike has sat for more than about a year, the carburetors could have clogged jets. That means that the carbs will have to be disassembled and cleaned.
Otherwise, make sure the choke is operating fully and that there isn't any excess slack, or free play in the choke cable. Take out any excess free play by using the adjuster on the choke cable.

Runs but will not rev . must have the choke on. acts like its cold and wont warm up. has not been run in a couple of months


There are a few things it could be, but your bike is definitely starving for gas. I could be clogged gas somewhere or a bad fuel pump.

I had a similar problem with my '88 Shadow 600 VLX. It sat for a few months and when I tried it again it would fire right up and run for a while if the choke was on and gradually get weaker and stall if left alone. If I turned the choke off or gave it throttle at all it would bog down hardcore and die almost immediately. I was about to tear apart the carbs but I decided to test the fuel pump first. I bypassed the pump and set it up for gravity feed and it ran with no problem after that. I wanted to get a replacement pump but for our bikes they're about $120!

I guess it could be something as dumb as a fuse, but if those and the wiring check out ok, definitely try bypassing the pump to see if it's the same problem.
