Question about 2005 Suzuki RM-Z 450

1 Answer

Spark plugs changed and bike will not start.

I had my spark plugs changed the other day. When I went to start it up It would not start and made a large backfiring noise.I took the air box off and looked at the boots. I noticed that two were in the wrong spot. I tried to start it again and it did the same thing. THis time smoke was coming from the two air intake ports on the left side of the bike. THere was also oil around the intake edges. I don't want to start it again because I don't want to ruin the bike if it is not already ruined. THe only aftermarket product I have on my bike is an exhaust can. THis is for a 2005 GSXR 600. Thanks

Sounds like you still have some wires crossed up somewhere. Should be 2 from one coil on 1 and 4, and the 2 from the other coil should be 2 and 3.

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.

You have 2 solutions : take out the spark plugs and dry them with cloth, put them back in and start the bike.
Or, leave the bike over the night and the excess fuel on spark plugs will evaporate.
If the engine is hot and you have this problem, just leave the bike for half an hour and start it.

Im not getting any spark, what are some ways to troubleshoot spark on my ZX9


Hi, Jerome and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting, leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or CDI or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Went to start my 04 600 and there seems to be no spark the bike was fine and all i did was change the plugs,oil etc.


Is the bike turning over? If not have your battery load tested. If so double check your plug wires and make sure they are tight at both ends. If the bike cranks and the wires are tight you then need to check and see if the plugs are getting spark. If plugs are getting spark then make sure its getting fuel. I hope this gets you started.

2003 883 sportster wont start


What u are describing is typical of a faulty ignition system, but could also be a fuel problem. I check by removing the aircleaner and rotating the throttle. If u see a nice spray of fuel, thats probably not the problem. Check for a spark at the plugs. I can explain how if you need me to. If you cant see a good spark, U have an electrical problem. I had a crank position sensor go bad on me. Dont do what I did (replaced the battery, ignition, and regulator as part of my diagnosis procedure)
