No fuel or no spark. Quick test: spray some starter fluid into air intake and try to start it. If it runs and then dies, you've got spark but no fuel. If the bike quit with no prior symptoms, check spark plug wire not knocked loose, fuel filter clogged. (You do have gas, right?)

Drain the carb floats and clean with Seafoam. Gas breaks down after about 6 months and the ethanol in the gas coats the carb.

your injector or fuel pump may be going out, next time when you check the issue, check your distubutor again and making sure you getting sparks, if you do have sparks than it has to be your fuel problems.

2007 yamaha virago won't start - replaced spark plugs and emptied gas tank and filled with new gas. it turns over - it has spark (fire) but won't start. Bike had been garaged for six months with full tank...


it's not that your not gettin gas it's that the gas is not getting thru the carbs to the engine. your bike will probably start w/choke on and then die, your jets are clogged and happens to most bikes that are stored w/gas in the carbs.,,,clean them if you know how or take it to a trusted mech...good luck to you...Tim

Started, died will not stay started unless starter button is held


Check for spark and fuel. The spark should be blueish-white and consistently flashing. If the ark is dull-orange and/or inconsistent then there is a problem. the fuel should flow freely from the pet-****, through the needle and seat, and past the primary and secondary jets. There are other things that can cause this problem, check the intake manifold gasket, spark plug, wire, water in the gas, and so on. well good luck.

I have a pit bike 125 its not starting wot so ever got good spark but still not start


If you have spark them it must be gas. eather no gas or to much gas. Put it on chock, be sure the shut off valve is in on position.Now crank it over a few times , if it wont fire. Check the plug , is it wet or dry .If its wet then it may be flooded and needs to dry out and air out the cylinder.Try starting when dry. If its dry try putting a 1/2 oz of gas into the spark plug hole. replace the plug and turn it over . This will get them to fire up. Good luck DFD

Bike only fires once


Okay, let's have a look at it. Say Ahaaa.
The probable cause of the problem is not the spark. Get a fresh set of Stock NGK spark plugs, ground the plus to the engine, and check each cylinder for spark as the starter button is pressed for 3 seconds or so. I will wager that the spark is present.

The likely problem is the fresh gas was put into a very rusty gas tank. Bits of rust now inhabit your carb and are having fun plugging up the carb. Look at the gas valve. With a little luck there is a small bowl behind the valve. Remove it and tell me what you see in the bowl.

Bike shut off on the freeway and wont start again.


Got gas? Got water in the gas? Drain the carbs and fuel line.

Check for spark. If no spark then check again with a new plug.
Is the kill switch on? Does the side stand have a kill switch? Is it working properly? Tip-over kill switch on your bike? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter.
Are all wires clean and with a solid connections? Check the loom. Any abraded 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. With a little luck this will get you back on the road.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

My 05 gsxr wont start


Check for spark first of all. If no spark, is the kill switch on? Is the side stand up? It should be up when starting. Is the bike in neutral? Check the fuses.

If spark is present, is the gas turned on? How clean is the air filter?
If the bike still will not start go ahead and drain the carbs. If your bike has a water trap bowl behind the gas valve then remove the bowl, clean and reinstall it.

Doing this should get you back on the road.

Wont start.


Hi, Sounds like a sticky float valve in one or more of the carbs. When sitting, the carb overfills causing the revving when you start it, then it dies cause the carb isn't filling. Also check the exup valve in the intake, it could also cause the exact same symptoms but because of too much back pressure once it starts. Good Luck to you, hope this helps Fixya!
