I'll assume you did not mess with the fuel line, the bike is not in need of tuning and the battery is charged. Issue may be something else if the above is not true.

On my 2000 Speed Triple my headlight relay went bad. It left the headlights on when starting. The headlights are suppose to switch off so the startor could get more juice out of the battery when starting the bike.

That is the dry-break disconnect - it is not uncommon for these to fracture.
They screw into the fuel pump assembly.
You don't necessarily have to remove the pump from the tank, but advisable to remove tank from bike in order to have good access to remove the old fitting(s). You will need to drain the tank to perform the replacement installation.
To remove the tank, you need to remove the seats, tail section, front tank cover, then unplug the two dry-break fuel lines and the elctrical pump connection - there is also another electrical connection on the underside of the tank, for the fuel level sender, so be sure to unplug that one also. Lastly on the opposite (left) side are the two vent & drain hoses which you can pull off the nipples. Two rubber mounts at the front & the one at the back & tank will be ready to come out.

The fittings are not easikly removed - that is because they have a sealant on them that is almost like epoxy; even when whole, they tend to snap off when you attempt to unscrew them. You will mostly need to use an EZ-out in order to get them out. Be patient - this may be quite tedious but important you get all the plastic & old sealer out of the threads before installing the new ones.

You will be best to replace the male and female parts as a set - the o-rings may be leaking anyway on the male fittings at that vintage.

There are all metal replacements available here as alternative to the OEM plastic ones
Be sure to note there are three different sets availabe so match the correct year for your '98.

When re-assembling the tail, ensure that the correct (short) screws are used in the front fitting - those go into captive threads in the tank. If the wrong screws are used they can puncture the fuel cell - not good!!

Good Luck

Oil level. Checked with engine on or off? How many quarts approx to fill it? Gas petcocks 3 settings. one is on. One is reserve. One is prim? What is prim? What is the spark plug size? 18mm? Special...

1. Oil level is checked with the engine off and the bike on its center stand so that the oil level is even across the engine.

2. Without knowing the model and year of your bike, it's not possible to suggest the oil capacity for your engine. Some engines have the maximum oil capacity molded into the engine case near the oil filler; others do not.

3. Your fuel petcock is vacuum activated. When the engine is running, a small amount of vacuum keeps the fuel flowing when the petcock is set to "On" (main tank) or "reserve" (emergency dregs of the tank). "Prim" stands for "prime," which permits fuel to flow without the presence of engine vacuum. You'd use this if you ran the bike out of gas and needed to get fuel to the carbs so that the engine could be started again. You don't want to keep your petcock set to "prime" for very long when the bike is turned off (or even when it's on) so that the carbs can't overfill. In extreme cases, you can fill your crankcase with gasoline, which can lead to hydraulic lock and the potential for serious engine damage if you try to run your bike like that (I've had that happen to me).

4. Again, without knowing the year and model of your bike, I am not able to provide any information about the spark plugs used by your bike. However, if your bike has 18mm spark plugs, you'll need an 18mm deep socket to install and remove them. I recommend using a 6-point over a 12-point socket for this purpose--and spending the extra dollar or two to get a good quality, brand name socket. I have never seen an 18mm "spark plug" socket, but if you're really concerned, you can take the little rubber insulator out of an old spark plug socket and stuff it in an 18mm deep socket. I have never bothered.

R1200RT won't start nothing at all, battery is charged . Bike was left standing for over a month.

First of all remove the spark plugs and check, if dirty clean the plugs and set the gaps. Now crank to flush out any overflow in the cylinder. replace the plugs.
Check the fuel filter and the fuel lines. check to see if there is any restriction of fuel flow to the cylinder. Replace fuel if the fuel was dirty and clean the tank.
Now crank with the spark plug to see the intensity of the spark. if Ok replace the plug and crank.
If there is not ignition check and reset the spark timing.

Bike been standing for 3 months, got good spark but wont start.

Is this still the 2 cycle version ? Clean spark plugs, remove and clean carb completely and replace fuel. 2cycle fuel gums fast as the oil breaks down. I'll take the fact that the motor was running before parked.

Bike wont start.good spark to plugs.fuel pump working. side stand switch fine. neutral switch fine.

i have the same bike try this. Firstly check the fuel is fairly fresh, using premium fuel on this model seems to work well. drain a little fuel from each carb to remove poss water build up and get fresh fuel. if spark plugs over 6 months old or over 5000 miles change as zxrs` eat plugs a spark does not mean it is allways good. i have changed to irridium plugs and have not had problems since . before you take out plugs turn over the engine a few times then when you remove each plug they should be wet ,if one is dry no fuel so clean carb,remove plug caps before you do this and note exact location of each.good luck Bri.

Tips on changing plugs for the first time

I have never changed the plugs on this type of bike but here is a rough idea for you.

1. Remove the fuel tank making sure you dont spill any fuel
2. Remove the Airbox
3. Number up the plug leads (mark them numbers 1-4) making sure you dont get them mixed up i.e no.1 lead resembles piston no.1, no.2 lead resembles piston no.2 piston and so on
4. Remove the spark plugs with a correct size spark plug socket

5. Before installing the new spark plugs make sure you have made the right gap clearence on the tip of the plug
6. Install the spark plugs
7. Re-fit the leads making sure the correct marked up lead goes with the correct piston
8. Fit the airbox
9. Fit the fuel tank

Hope this is help to you. If you are in doubt then take the bike to a nearby mechanic in which i should imagine that it is not expensive to have them fitted professionly
