Hi Tony:
Odds are pretty good that the carb will need a good cleaning. Gas left that long will turn to jello.

Pulled the choke bike wont start


Usually if you flood it (by overchoking), you open the throttle wide open (to draw in more air to lean the mixture) while cranking starter.
Beings you had the spark plugs out you could have cranked it then, and let the engine compression blow the excess gas out the spark plug holes.

I have a suzuki gsx r600 and I can't keep the bike runnin.. Well I got the bike from a friend and its been sittin up 4 years, so I tryed jumpin it and it comes on after a little juice get to the battery,so...


If you suspect the battery, you can disconnect it and run straight to your car battery though the jumper cables. If it has been sitting up this long the carbs' will need to come off and cleaned. Gas has dried inside and clogged jets and ports. If you are not getting fuel to the cylinders that is your problem.

Rode home new 883;, next morning bike wouldnt start, battery weak. would not turn engine over. bike is 2009 with 40 miles, bought from dealer


how old is your battery? if it is 2 to 3 years old it may need to be
replaced . charge it up and see if it keeps charge, crank your bike
run it for a short time 4 or 5 min. shut it , and try to start it. if it
drags when cranking go buy new battery.

Bike wont start


I posted this for a similar problem, maybe it can help. Are you sure it's getting gas to the carbs? Some people don't realize the 99-02 SV650 has a vacuum-actuated fuel pump, and sometimes it can get stuck. Mine has had this problem, and it took me a while to determine it was the problem. I would guess it only happens after the bike has been sitting a while (ours unfortunately sat for a year or so without being run).

Best way to check it is to lift the tank (it's bolted to the frame on the right side of the engine just under the tank). Unplug the line toward the front of the motorcycle from the fuel pump, and connect some spare fuel hose to it running to a can next to the bike (don't want to get gas everywhere!). With everything else still connected, crank the bike for a short period to see if any fuel comes out (shouldn't take long). If not, then move backward and ensure fuel will flow from the vacuum-petcock when the bike is cranked. If that does work, your fuel pump needs some work. I was able to take mine apart and unstick it.

Yamaha 2001 Raptor 660, sat for a year, wont start, starter is ok, battery is ok, spark is great, but it sounds like starter is not engaging, when it does engage bike just cranks and cranks.


Your gas is bad.  I have to change my all the time If your starter turns but dose not engage the starter barring is out DO NOT BUY STOCK. buy after market when you replace that.  they

Car wont start


I can only say that for the old cars even sitting for a year is not healthy, because most parts of engine, starting system, charging system will get corroded/deposited. Most probably you will need to change battery, motor oil, fuel, spark plugs, check the starter and alternator. Also check the fuel pump, fuel filter. First shot would be battery, fuel, spark plugs and starter.
Good Luck

Harley softail 2000, has been sittin for 3 months, cranks but wont start


The battery has to be fully charged. It will crank but will not start without a fully charged battery.

If it still does not start, check for gas.

Really the battery is most likely at fault here if it was alright 3 months ago.
