Why dont I have spark? V Star 1100 First lost my keys, had to hotwire bike, (still hotwired maybe this is the fault for no spark?) As the days passed I noticed the bike having more difficulty starting


Hi, Kahmaar nice novella sorry to hear about all your problems that were self-inflicted and yes you may have fried the ECM when jump starting with a running automobile and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting, leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

My 2007 yamaha 650 v-star classic suddenly quit running one day as i was riding, as if the key was shut off. now it won't start. what causes this?


this happened to my v-star 1100 it turned out to be the voltage regulator had a short and fried the battery and the loss of voltage from the battery caused the bike to quit.


another thing it could be is a short in the kill switch I've seen that happen on quite a few bikes over the years....good luck hope this helps.

Bike been setting for long time wont start i change gas & battery.


Hi, Stanley if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

I have a 2000 yz 125 and it would start. i have


  • Start with a new spark plug. Do you see spark? If not, 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.
  • Drain the Carb then refill it. Only twist the throttle one time in ten kicks. Extra gas pumps in on every twist of the throttle. Twist too often and flooding happens.
  • Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Is the handlebar kill switch on? Is the Neutral light on?
  • Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop.
  • Got gas and is it turned on? Clean air filter?
  • Carb, head and intake manifold mounted tight?
  • Does the carb intake manifold have reeds? What condition are they in?

600 honda hurricane will not start


Be sure the kill switch is off. Check the side stand kill switch. Sometimes they go bad and kill when up AND when down. Hopefully the problem is constant instead of intermittent. Intermittent problems are the worst to find. Both coils are not likely to go bad at once. CDI yes, coils no. How good is your battery?
