Question about Motorcycles
Only 900 miles on clock,has been running but always had a pop back through the filter on tick over and always turns over slow..so replaced battery and still the same..checked starter and seems ok..out of engine but when in bike it sounds tight or its spinning and not engageing..struggles then of course drains the battery..checked all sensors clips practically everything..been told it could be starter pinion cogs..would love some advice before i start spending on it..cheers..
Check the cam timing and the ignition timing. If the engine is firing at the wrong time it will make turning over difficult.

Testimonial: "hi yeah thought the same and it will bump start and run with full power..it started today first click of starter..turned over fast and ran the smoothest ive ever heard it..turned it off and went back to it but back to the same old problem. wont start again..struggles and wines when trying to crank it..im looking at either starter or pinion gear cogs slipping or not engaging properly..could do with some help with this one as no one wants to work on them as there very rare now..even got a new throttle body with injector and throttle position sensor on there way, so ill try that aswell..but everything else seems fine..i spent all day yesterday cleaning all contacts and checking every fuse and wire through out the bike and nothing seems at fault..thanks for all your times.."

SOURCE: 2006 Aprilia RS125 doesnt start
Hi .... Try switching the petrol off just prior to stopping the engine and start up again with the petrol OFF. There's enough petrol in the carb to start the bike. A good battery should show over 12 volts. Take the plugs out and give them a good clean or replace them. Is there a petrul pump fitted ? A two stroke needs to be ridden quite hard to maintain efficeincy, higher revs etc ........ let us know how you get on ?

Your gas is bad. I have to change my all the time If your starter turns but dose not engage the starter barring is out DO NOT BUY STOCK. buy after market when you replace that. they

Drain and replace the gas with fresh.
Remove the air cleaner and spray carb cleaner into the inlet. Work your throttle a little then put everything back together and try to start it.

I have just found my 30 amp fuse blown on my daytona , this prevents the alternator working , it was reading 10.9v before I changed the 30 amp fuse , now it reads 14.5 volts , I think I blew it as I didnt know how to put the alarn into service mode and left the ignition on , anyway I am hoping its just that , 3 heat up/cool down cycles and the engine management light should go out
