    Getemwet-



    My neighbor use to race these bikes in circuit and he actually solved my problem...I started with the flooding issue, I bought a new petcock and fuel pump expensive fix, but it solved the problem of too much fuel dumping into the carbs and bombarding the needle floats (my pump was bad though). They make a rebuild kit for the petcock but I didn't trust it. To fix the vapor locking drain the oil from the bike if it smells of fuel and is very liquidy instead of viscous then your seats are probably bad in the carbs. Buy some crappy oil because it will mix with gas don't change the filter till all the gas is out of the cylinders. Remove the spark plugs, while they are out press the start button so the engine cycles and pushes the fuel out the top, through the spark plug holes might want to cover the opening with a clean shop towel. Then change the oil and filter. After that was fixed I overhauled the carbs with new needle floats and seats and adjusted the float height. My bike still runs like **** probably needs a top end rebuild?? but atleast it starts! Good luck!

Dont know if you got the answer from someone who knows what the hell they are talking about cause obviously these idiots never owned a 96 s-rad. the problem is that your engine is loading up with fuel and basically vapor locking the engine witch you could also call severely flooding it. you have a carb problem as do i and if a real mechanic comes on and reads our problem please let us know how to solve... thank you

Check the voltage at the battery...you should have at least 12.44 volts.. if below that your battery is weak. Check for corroded terminals. The ground from the battery to the frame on these bikes are known to corrode. Check the starter solenoid, terminals clean and tight? You can "jump" the solenoid to see if starter will engage.
Good luck...i hope this helps...

Have you tried charging the battery, or jumpstarting it? You can take the battery to any parts store and they should be able to load test it. I would start there. You can also take a screwdriver and jump across the terminals on the starter solenoid. Be aware, its going to cause sparks, and will pit the blade of the screwdriver!! If you do that and it turns over, your ignition switch is probably bad. If it still doesn't, probably your solenoid on the starter. This all is predicated on the battery being charged, and the terminals clean and tight.

First of all your motorcycle should start with the kick-start if the kick-start is very very hard your motor is seized. First check this then leave the starter motor last

Where i can find elecrical wiring diagram


When you try to start the bike, does anything happen? Noises? Clicks? Or is it silent and nothing happens? If you hear a click or it try's to start but doesn't turn over. If nothing at all happens when you hit the start switch then you most likely have an electrical issue, versus if you hear the starter click or try to start to bike, then that would mean a mechanical issue.

I have a 06 r6 I put a new battery in it and now when I press the start button it just clicks if I keep pressing it then it will start but after I ride for a Lil bit when I stop it will start wright up but...


hi, your starter gear clutch bearing is "warning" you. It will fail shortly.That's a one way bearing that ""engages" your starter when you hit thr starter and "desingage" when the engine starts .
It'a also possible that you hear some noise when you stop the engine.Your bike must be around 30000 km ?

Put the run button on and hear a click from the start relay. Hit the start button and nothing at all. Dead silent.


The click you are hearing is not coming from the "starter relay". The starter relay is activated by the "start" button only. The relay you're hearing is from the ECM or the securtiy system and that's what has your bike "dead in the water". I'm sorry but I know nothing about either system.

Good luck

My engine wont start


check battery for full charge and tight cables.use test light check for power to starter when pushing start button.if there is, check starter. if none check for power to start solenoid on small wire going to it w/ testlight when you press start.if none, check start button, & wiring.if youi have power to it,but no start, take large screwdriver & make contact between both solenoid cable posts,make sure bike is in neutral. should crank, confirming that solenoid is bad.also, even if the solenoid has no power going to it to energize it you can still use the screwdriver trick to get bike to crank.
