Had the same problem afte not starting the bike for a few yrs.. its definitely the smaller jets in the carbs.. you need to take off the carbs and gently clear the smaller of the two jets with a needle and some carb cleaner so that you can blow through it... anything else is a waste of time. ... there's some great vids on utube how to remove and clean the carbs but its definitely the smaller of the two jets blocked in each of the 4 carbs... not that hard to do neither. . Good luck

You must open up completely your carburetors.The old gas turns to gel after a couple of months.First clean them up good and then we can assume it is something else if it still does not start.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, confirm presence and consistency of spark on the plug ends when cranking. Thereafter check for fuel reaching inside the cylinders by cranking with sparkplugs in place but not HT wires connected. Remove the plugs and note for presence of fuel.

Perform above spark and fuel tests; postback results.

Note: Almost always, the carbs has to be pulled out for a complete cleanup. The old gasoline could have turned to varnish like substance and coated the ports, jets, passage ways and carb bowl/walls.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Did you replace the gas? Use a gas stabilizer? Have you changed the fuel filter? Very important if you are letting a gas powered engine sit for any length of time. I suggest removing the tank, or if you can do it with the tank in place, flush it out, and replace the fuel filter.

If you take the bolt to a bolt shop they can measure the size and pitch, or just buy a sump bolt from the honda shop. get a new sealing washer at the same time. If the honda ones are too expensive, try the bike breakers, they are a fairly standard size, but again take the old bolt.

Fireblade wont start just backfires


It sounds as if the timing is out. But having a manual will do you no harm. There is only a 98 one available (unless I missed it) so good luck.

Car wont start


If it has been sitting for 3 years it could be a number of things. First thing to try is a good tune up (plugs, wires, oil change, air filter, and fuel filter). If the plugs have fouled out they are not getting enough spark to burn the fuel. Also if the fuel itself has turned, you should try to drain the tank, this is not feasible at times and can be substituted by adding as much fresh gas as possible and a can of Octane boost/ Gas drier. SeaFoam is what I would recommend (found at your local autoparts store. If you have over half a tank of gas that has been sitting that long, you will need to find a way to drain what is in it. There are a few tricks to doing this without dropping the gas tank or sucking it out with a garden hose. Try the tune up first though.

I only put priemum gas but I was woundering if it was bad gas that's been sitting for 2 years from the prevous owner.


If you are not sure, try draining your fuel tank and make sure its empty.

For bikes, unleaded or premium gas works just fine.

Try also to change oil.

I can only say that for the old cars even sitting for a year is not healthy, because most parts of engine, starting system, charging system will get corroded/deposited. Most probably you will need to change battery, motor oil, fuel, spark plugs, check the starter and alternator. Also check the fuel pump, fuel filter. First shot would be battery, fuel, spark plugs and starter.
Good Luck
