doulbe check the grounds, & you might need to add and extra ground wire to the bike, closer to the starter. This should help. There is a valve that release the compression when you kick it off.You might see if you can pull this release the compression valve while pushing the start button????

SOURCE: Honda CBR 900rr 95 Will not start

Check fuel pump is working(remove seat and tank)Although your bike has carbs,they are fed by a fuel pump(under seat and tank)
if there is no fuel getting pumped when you are cranking over,replace fuel pump relay(cheapest option)If still no joy your fuel pump is u/s.although hondas have a seperate small vacume type hose running off the back of the pump,any pump off a kawasaki zx7/zx9 will do the job(they are all made by the same firm)

SOURCE: 95 Honda CBR 900 rr will not start.

Definatly a good tune up would help, but it also sounds as if you may have a bad stator. I would check the voltage at the battery and see if it goes up and down when accelorating.

There is a proper way to start an engine. Most bikes have four controls to assist in starting.

  • The choke, used when the engine is cold. Pull the red knob for choke.
  • The " Hot Start " Lever, used when the engine is hot. Pull the lever to lean the fuel mix when the engine has been running.
  • The de-compression lever, always used.
  • The throttle, used to prime the cylinder.
Don't kick, instead, push the kick lever downward. You will feel the back pressure as the piston is going upward on the compression stroke to the point the pressure is great enough that the kick lever "locks up". You are very close to TDC. NOW, pull in the de-compression lever. Push the kick lever a little bit more to get the piston past TDC. Now release the de-compression lever. Give the throttle a 1/4 turn then let it snap closed. A diaphragm in the carb gives a shot of gas when this is done. DO NOT do this multiple times because you will flood the engine. Leave the throttle closed when kicking. A flooded engine will often backfire. Now give a strong kick through the full sweep of the kick start lever. Quickly get your foot off the kick lever at the end of the kick to avoid any chance of "kickback" from the kick lever. This happens in the case of a misfire, aka > backfire. It can be very painful, and can even break a leg. I am serious about that. Repeat the process (but without the throttle priming), until the bike starts. Go ahead and give it another primer shot after the 5th kick attempt. A good battery, a clean spark plug, a clean carb and clean air filter will also aid in starting.

1985 Honda shadow vt500c how to replace front turn signal stem, after engine gets hot and you shut bike off try to restart bike won't start, also I have a noise sounds like coming from water pump


Hi, Luther the answer to all those questions is way above my pay grade for this situation, I would call or visit my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

My bike won't start(lights light ,horn works push starter button nothing no power to spark plugs ??? i belive one of the starter interlocks must be stuck in an open position possibly?


Hey, When that happened to me I took the bike half apart and it ended up being the Kill switch. Try rocking it back and forth also if you have contact cleaner flood the switch and let it dry then give it a light spray of wd-40. also check the start switch to be sure it is making contact,bike is in Neutral and the kick stand switch is also working.

Won't start ~ rode a few hours then parked it ~ turned on key no lights came on ~ i checked the starter connections ~ all fine there nothing ~ ran great before


there is a high possibility the battery is dead. or maybe the bike isnot charging the battery. i suggest push starting it then ride it a few blocks and shut it off pull the key and then start it again...it might be the attery wont hold a charge...if thats the case then replace it but do that before messing with the stator. hope this helps good luck!

My garage got very cold during the month of December and my bike does not want to start now. It had started but it turned off and smells like it is flooded. What could be the problem?


Bike should be fuel injected so very hard to flood. Most likely battery was weak from cold and couldn't turn over and spark enough to start. Try charging battery for a few hours, beware of sparks if you smell gas. Hook charger up then turn on.

I rebuilt my carburater on my 2005 cr 250 now my bike will not idle and their is alot of fuel coming out of the overflow. when my bike is cold it starts and runs good after running awile and i turn it off...


You need to take it back apart and follow the float level setting directions to the letter.

The float level is very critical.

Also check and make sure you have the needle and seat installed properly.

2005 Rmz250 wont start when hot.


YOUR BIKE HAS A POWER VALVE (DIAPHRAM FUEL PUMP) THAT GIVES A SHOT OF GAS EACH TIME THE THROTTLE IS TWISTED. WHEN THE BIKE IS HOT, IT FLOODS EASILY. DON'T HIT THE THROTTLE WHEN STARTING THE BIKE WHEN THE ENGINE IS HOT.

My 2005 Crf 250 r will not start by kicking when cold if you roll it it will fire right up like it should runs great after you get it started the first time what are some simple things that i could try to...


Add water to the battery. Enough to cover the plates in each cell.
The battery may be on its' last legs. If you don't have a 1 or 2 amp charger, push start the bike and ride for a few hours. This should charge the battery < IF > it will still take a charge. If it won't take a charge and hold it then it's time for a new battery.

The reason you can push start the bike is that the flywheel is able to spin fast enough to generate enough current to provide spark. Kick starting won't do that. Just because a battery has SOME power does't mean it has ENOUGH power to do as needed.

Please rate this answer. Thanks hunterdan01!
