Bike will turn over but won't start.

I hit sand on the road while accelleration out of a corner. My bike went over on its side while running and stopped running. I picked up the bike and now it will turn over but won't start.

    Check for spark. If no spark then check kill switch on handlebar. Check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. Check the fuses. Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter.

Cranks but will not start


There should be a bike equivalent of an alternator providing power to the bike. Sounds like it died. In a car (where I am getting my idea from due to lack of bike experience), the battery starts the car, the combustion rotates the engine which turns the alternator which charges the battery and provides electricity to the vehicle.

Another (slight) possibility is there wasn't a perfect connection between the battery terminal and the post of the battery.
By removing and replacing the battery, maybe you removed a little "gunk" inbetween the connection, and retightened everything up good.

Finally, the "check engine" light for 3-4 seconds "might" just be a glitch.
The best check is to pull the error codes (DTCs) and see what (if) the computer stored any errors.

Buell blast won't start


You have a bad switch somewhere - either the clutch switch in the clutch lever or the kickstand switch is bad. Of course I had a blast that had a sloppy connector at the back of the key switch that did all of the above too.

I have a 883 harley davidson sporster, was riding the bike and road over a bump and bike shut down and won't start


I'd check the battery first. I've seen the post break loose from the batteries in many Sportsters and leave them dead on the road. I've only seen this happen once on a Big Twin. Why? I have no idea. If nothing on the bike works, this may be the problem. If everything else works but it just won't start, I need more information. Does the starter engage and the engine turn over?

Bike will run great no problems then start cutting out when you hit the throttle quick. sometimes wont even start and then randomly it will start up and run fine i think its electrical but cant put my...


G'day. Two probable causes I can think of are.1/ Faulty ignition coil/cap.2/ accellerator pump not working(carburettor models only).Have your ignition coil/cap tested first as it is easier than removing the carby to check if the accellerator pump is working.To test the accellerator pump.Remove carby,with cables & fuel re- connected- opperate throttle-should squirt out fuel from front of carby.
Hope this is helpfull

Hit a bump in the road , speedometer , tact ,went dead


Wonder about your stoplight, taillight? Most of that stuff runs off the accessories fuse. Check that fuse to see if it is blown. If it is, replace it and see what happens. If it blows immediatly, you've got a dead short somewhere. If it stays there, you may have an intermittent short. The intermittant short is a bear to find because it's tough to fix a problem when it ain't there. Electrical problems are always difficult and this about the best information I can give you. It's a starting point.

Good Luck
