SOURCE: electric start dont work

You probably have a bad switch

First look to se if there are any fuses
also see if horn works

FIX for determining if starter works

to find out take jumper cables and put the red cable on the plus side of the battery and the black on the minus side of battery(ground)

Put the black lead(ground ) on the frame of the bike near starter and touch the red to the starter lead( you may have to peel back rubber boot over starter nut

when you touch the starter nut it will spark and should spin over

if it does then you need to remove the screw assembly that holds the starter button and remove and clean it out with electronic cleaner (you may have to replace it if so go to honda shop and order new one

Good luck

SOURCE: yamaha tdr 125 1997 not sparking constantly

think you have a timing problem some may have screwed with the valve sproket on top of cylinder-its connected by chain to the crank where the alternator is they have to be geometrically alined{timing marks} you can do it your self with a cycle manual from bookstore or library. youll also learn to electrically test components-learn some japonese

SOURCE: Honda Varadero 125. Not starting.

Hi !
First check if the current is coming from ignition coil....
If YES ... then the spark plug is burnt(shorted) Get new plugs.
If NO... then there could be a problem with the ignition coil itself Or the coil in the dynamo is burnt.... Regards

SOURCE: Bike wont kick start or idle , it will coast

first drain the carby, then set your air mixture screw 2 turns out, from the fully turned in position. The starting proceedure is as follows, when the engine is COLD, turn on fuel, pull on the choke fully, and kick the engine over. DO NOT use any throttle, when the engine is cold, and the choke is on. Remember Choke on, NO throttle.
When warm, no choke, and a little throttle when kicking.

I have a xlr 125 2001 motorbike bin sat for about year was running even though it was stolen and had ignition hot wired anyway tried to start it but no joy i have fuel and spark new plug even sprayed gt 85...

Ok. Start from scratch just to make sure your not missing something simple. Verify you have compression on your cylinders. If you dont have a compression tester you can always use your thumb and spin the bike over.If you have good compression, then the next issue is spark. Pull off a spark plug wire with a pair of insulated pliers, hold it next to the plug and try to start the bike.If you have no spark then that is your starting problem.If you have good spark, then your last issue is going to be fuel. But I am betting you have a spark issue. Good luck.

Honda xlr 125 2001 got spark and fuel but wont start

The engine does not start if there is a wrong setting of the fuel and a wrong timing of the spark.So unless the settings are correct the presence of spark and fuel is not the condition for the engine to fire and start.
So you need to check the timing of the spark with relativity to the TDC. set it to the correct level. Now remove the plug and check the spark, check the intensity. If low check the HT coils and the triggers. Also check the fuel settings ,check the cylinder for over flow after removing plugs and pumping out the excess, then replace plugs and try to start.

Xlr 125 wont start do i have to pull the clutch in to start it

You need to put it into neutral in order to start it or pull the clutch and hold it down until started. I would suggest putting it into neutral. Double check that you have it in neutral by trying to push the bike without holding down the clutch when you think you have it in neutral. If the bike rolls easily, then you know its in neutral. If it won't push or seems hard to get it to roll forward then you know its still in gear. Once you have it in neutral (for sure), hold the clutch down and start the bike.

Othen than that, all you have to do is make sure its turned on and it should start. Some bikes use a key to turn it on, others have a throttle control switch. We had Suzuki Quad racers which were 2 stroke - and are a little different.

Bke wont start

Hi there, try this sometimes the stand switch can make the bike not work if has got rusted at the back.and check or replace the coil., then check if you are getting a spark from the plug by putting the spark plug on top of the head. The next thing is if the bike turns over but not fire up, you need to strip down carb and clean jets, also check petrol value under the tank If you have a book it will go through this step by step. good luck.
