First off are your plugs gapped correctly? Also how long has it been since the valve lash has been set? Is this a battery powered ignition system or a CDI style? If it's battery then a good battery source is needed, also check every ground and every single switch between the hot side of battery to ignition coil, include your start button and also the engine kill switch(which should be open)

I have a 97 f3 that sat for 6 weeks. Now it will not start. It turns over with no problem, but no spark. Ran great all summer without any issues. So far, I have replaced the spark plugs...what are the next...


well ive fixed this problem multiple times with my bike it definantly sounds like your carbs need to be cleaned, when u leave a bike sitting for a while and leave gas in the bike it will clog up your carberators once those are cleaned the bike should start right up

Runs then sputters and wont start


you might need to clean you stator(altinator) or maybe get a new one for you spark to work right if you have already changed the coil.also bad gas can do it also or low fuel.when the tank is low put your bike gas valve on reserve.A friends bike was running badly and all i did was put it on reserve cause the tank was low and the bike ran great after that.

Hi i just got a 1988 gsx600f i put new plugs in it tuck it out for a ride and it was running good then i gave her a little gas to kinda see what it would do and it bogged so i idled it home and statred...


it seems odd that your coils would play up, usally the they just stop working. You talk of it bogging down? , i would suggest that to be a carby problem, especialy if the bike has sat around for a while. first try to just drain the carbys, as you can do this without removing them, should be a drain screw or plug on the bottom of the carby. Make sure your air filter is clean too!

The bike has sat for a few years. have had the carbs cleaned and rebuilt. I've drained and cleaned the fuel tank. The bike cranks and cranks but will not start. It is not firing at all. Seems like no...


clean the points as well, they may have got muck on them? or even stuck up? how good is the battery?,,, it may crank the bike over but how much power is left for the spark plugs to fire up on? i take it there is petrol getting to the carbs? try this out take a good plug stick a plug lead on it hold it down hard on the head of the bike and spin the motor up, if you got a spark you will see and hear it,,,ps,,get your mate to do the holding down bit (he, he, he,?????)

2001 nomad, has power commander, vance and hinse exhaust and hyper charger. Bike starts but miss fires. Bike seems to run better uphill then down hill. It started on day on a ride when the bike just died...


DRAIN CARBS FROM PETCOCK AT BOTTOM OF EACH CARB MAKE SURE FUEL DRAINS COMPLETELY THEN TURN FUEL BACK ON, IF THIS IS AN INJECTED MODEL DRAIN TANK AND FLUSH THEN RUN IT HARD FOR 20 MILES OR SO, MAKE SURE YOUR OIL LEVEL IS OK

Bike won't start


Check compression ratio and valves clearance.The carbs leak any fuel from their o-rings.Spray through the air box with a carb cleaner spray while pressing start button but little bit at a time.Don't twist the throttle too much and always use choke until she fires up for good.
