Question about Motorcycles
My GSX R 1000, 2011 model motorcycle wont start or crank after Ive stack it. i broke the exhaust valve actuator and It now displays a FI warning light and it won't start. Does anyone know whether there's a bypass for this and can i safely ride it without causing bike to get more damages until the exhaust valve actuator parts arrive

hello and welcome
with that long of a storage period it is a safe bet that the jets in the carbs have plugged over. this can happen with little as a month or two without proper winterization or fuel conditioning prior to storage. so the carbs will need to be removed and cleaned properly. this is quite the task on the older v4 hondas. and i would reccomend a manual before doing so. after being removed a good can or two of aresol carb cleaner and a small gauge wire to break up builup can clean these carbs out. this is a very very common problem. and im sure you will find this to be the source for your no start. thank you.

Need to check the ECU for registered malfunction.You must take it to a dealer's workshop.Engine warning light means that a sensor is not working properly.

Check the kill switch rock it back and forth to be sure it is making contact. Open it up and spray it with contact cleaner that is safe for plastics available at radio shack. After sitting for four years I would start with the fuel system. New filter and NEW GAS and check the fuel lines for cracks and leaks. I have seen bikes that sat for 6 months and needing the carburetors cleaned and reset.

You didn't say what year and model the bike was but on any four stroke engine, you must have three things for the engine to run. You need fuel, spark, and compression. The easy one to check is the fuel. Take your air filter off and make sure you're getting fuel to the engine. Then, check your spark. Pull the spark plug wires off the spark plugs in the head and insert another set of plugs in the wires. Ground the plugs against the engine, turn the ignition switch on and press the start button. Watch the plugs to see if you have spark. The next test is compression. With the engine cold, remove the spark plugs. If you have a compression gauge, connect it to one of the heads and spin the engine over with the starter. If you don't have a gauge, simply put your finger over the spark plug hole. Turn the throttle wide open and press the start button. You should show about a hundred pounds of compression if you have a gauge or the compression should blow your finger off the hole with a good deal of force if you're checking it that way. If you have all three of these and they're timed correctly, the engine should run. If the engine won't run, find out which of the three elements is missing and work from there.

for Fuel Injection. The fuel system sensors have detected a problem. It could
be anything > a dirty air filter restricting airflow, a plugged
injector, an error in fuel mapping, any number of things. Serious
problems can trigger the computer to prevent the engine from starting
until the problem is fixed. You will need to take the bike to a dealer to have
them plug in a code reader. The code reader will tell you exactly what problem
has been detected. There is also a chance a sensor has gone bad and is
giving a false signal. Keep that in mind. Now determine if you want to do the
fix or have the dealer do it. Please
