This bike has fuel injection and will not start if the battery is flat or has a low charge bumping it will not work
if you have had cold weather over the last five months I would expect that the battery is dead and will need replacing
when you have replaced the battery it should be fine

SOURCE: 05 katana 600f no spark!

sounds as if you have an issue with the charging system, try using a volt meter to determine if the bike is charging. To do so you will need to access the battery under the seat, with the bike running hook up the volt meter to the battery terminals, at idle you should have around 11volts when reving you should have around 13volts. If not you may have a bad stator or other electrical issues. good luck

SOURCE: bike wont start

I would check for compression on the cylinders. a engine has to have fuel,fire and compression or it wont run. Check the specs to get the operable compression levels.

Bike dont want to start got spark and feul benstanding for 5months now

Todays fuel is so full of crap that if left standing for any length of time will gunge up carb jets. The only solution I\'m sorry to say will be a full strip and clean of the fuel system & carbs. If you don\'t know what you are doing get someone who does. Stripping a carb is no job for the uninitiated.

Bike have spark and feul but dont want start

You already tried towing it to start it up? Did it break down near the house or did you have to have it towed home when it didn't work? You might have to have it towed to a car service.

1991 fzr 600 no spark

you dont need your clutch to start the bike in neutral, the only wire goin near your clutch should be for your horn. the clutch is cable activated on the fzr, if you have no spark check your basics, fuse's relays and such. on the fzr there is two sets of fuses the four under your seat and then relays and one single fuse under the back plastic (left hand side if sitting on the bike). then the next easiest would be to check your wire's they need tune up's just like cars. other than that you are basically left with the digital ignitor or your coils, if you have power goin to your coils what about after them ??? Also the kickstand safety is only when the bike is put into gear it will shut off the bike if stand is down.

My motor wont start..!

  1. The carb has 2 choke knobs,red and black one,black for cold start and red for hot start,I found on my 426 that by pulling the black one every time I try to start the bike,the bike starts hot or cold.When it started press the choke knob back.
  2. A dirty air filter will also make the bike difficult to start.
  3. Do not open the throttle even a bit whilst kicking it,the carb tends to flood very easily and then you are going to kick the bike for ever and ever.
  4. The exhaust turning red hot I'd suggest you get the carburator's jetting checked out,it can be because your feul/air mixture is not right and this could also be a factor in your starting problem,but another reason can also be when the bikes stands still whilst idling or even being revd whilst not in motion the engine tends to get very hot very quickly,the bike does not have a electric fan blowing threw the radiator,and if you did not know your exaust system removes between 60-70% of your engines heat,so it will turn red hot if your are not riding so the cold wind can blow over the exhaust and threw the radiator.
  5. You say you get good spark,where did you test it?Did you check the spark plug itself,or only the sparkplug lead,I find the 426 to be very hard on spark plugs,when I find my 426 difficult to start the first thing I change is the spark plug and it solved my problem many times.
  6. You also mentioned you have feul "to" carb but do you have feul - carb to engine.
  7. How does the compresion feel when kicking the kickstarter,any lack in compresion could indicate a sticky valve in the open position,the unexperianced rider will not kickstart this bike due to the amense compression these bikes have (Ratio 12.1).
Just a few suggestions I hope one works for you.
