Question about 2007 Honda CBF 500
Can I push start my bike ?
The short answer is yes.
I'll add a couple of extra comments.
- You can push it for ever and it won't start if it does not have fuel or spark. So, I;ll ask, Why do you want to push start it? If the battery is dead, or it won't hold a charge, that sounds like an appropriate fix.
- Push starting a bike can be dangerous. You have to consider that when the motor starts, the bike will want to accelerate, and probably rapidly. Know where you're planning on going if it starts.
- Technique.... It's easier to push a bike that's in neutral than when in gear with the clutch dragging, so the safe and easiest way to push start the bike is to have the ignition switch on, choke set where you think it should be, transmission in neutral, have a rider sit on the bike, and get it rolling downhill. The rider will then pull the clutch lever, put it into second gear, and let the clutch out at the same time as they drop their weight onto the seat. Tricky for a novice, but the weight drop helps to keep the back tire from sliding.
Think Safety!! If you're a novice rider, I would not recommend that you try this.
