    could but not likely. sounds like you may have a wireing problem or you could check all coils too se if one is grounding out. also check all fuses and relays.

I have Kawasaki zxr 636 it will not start when cold it trys to fire but won't 20 mins with jump lead it starts and is ok leave it a month it will not go

Hi, Wayne you may want to consider a motorcycle battery tender and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Fuel line to the carburetor or throttle body pinched or kinked.
8. Carburetor float stuck.
9. Fuel injectors clogged.
10. Severely discharged or damaged battery you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
11. 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.
12. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
13. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty MAP, CKP, O2, TPS, sensors.
14. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
15. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
16. Faulty CDI box.
17. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
18. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
19. Check for engine trouble codes.

I have a 2000 zx6r and it wont start ive got a new battery

A new battery means that the power supply seems good. Now what is most important for the bike to fire up is a good spark and fuel supply and our observation must be directed to this section. So remove the plugs and check spark, if not seen then the HT coils and the IGNITION triger from the system must be checked , rectified or replaced.
Secondly the fuel suppy to the cylinder must be checked as you open the plugs the presence will be seen if there was an overflow without spark. If so pump out and replace plug only when the spark intensity is confirmed.

New Ryobi petrol c/saw wont start.

If it is brand new, sounds like you should return it for the retailer to have repaired.

Onece in a while turn over wont fire. runs great other wise

your injector or fuel pump may be going out, next time when you check the issue, check your distubutor again and making sure you getting sparks, if you do have sparks than it has to be your fuel problems.

95 sportster wont start. Everything was running fine until now.

do a basic test .try starting the bike, then take out a spark plug. is it wet or dry? if its dry, no gas getting into the combustion chamber. if its wet, place the thread of the pluged in spark plug against any engine metal, crank the engine and look for a good blue spark. no spark or an orange spark means ignition problem.

My 05 gsxr wont start

Check for spark first of all. If no spark, is the kill switch on? Is the side stand up? It should be up when starting. Is the bike in neutral? Check the fuses.

If spark is present, is the gas turned on? How clean is the air filter?
If the bike still will not start go ahead and drain the carbs. If your bike has a water trap bowl behind the gas valve then remove the bowl, clean and reinstall it.

Doing this should get you back on the road.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!
