Try this: remove your air-filter (prob. located under seat) and spray starter fluid in there. This should start it up and might clean out the problem. Make sure all gas lines are turned on as well. Sometimes after motors sit too long the mechanical parts tend to build up a thin layer of film and rust which causes them parts to stick or clog tiny air/fuel holes. If you can get it started with the starting fluid the motor self lubricants and the suction the bike creates might pull the rest of the debris threw and spit it out your exhaust.

Ducati 600 ss been stood still for 6 years, any tips for ensuring a good start?

Hi, Simon if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 3 years or older when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

2005 ZX 636 will not start

Have you drained the old petrol from the carbs? Do this by way of the drain screw at the bottom of each carb.
As long as there is a spark it should now fire-up

Good Luck
Hope this helps.

Battery drains after 40 t 60 days.replaced alternator and battery but it happened again

is the car just stood up doing nothing or are you only doing short trips 3 or 4 miles a day?
every time you start your car it takes 20 minuets of driving to put back what you took out the battery and thats with out head light/heaters on?
drive it further or walk?
if its stood up for months its likley to be the alarm draining the battery running it up once a week wont do any good realy. its the same thing as boing whats above?
if its just standing around get the bigest solor sell as you can find say 10 wats and hook that up to the battery,,, then its problem solved

You need to get some new float needles, and have the carbs cleaned and the float heights set correctly.

Bke wont start

Hi there, try this sometimes the stand switch can make the bike not work if has got rusted at the back.and check or replace the coil., then check if you are getting a spark from the plug by putting the spark plug on top of the head. The next thing is if the bike turns over but not fire up, you need to strip down carb and clean jets, also check petrol value under the tank If you have a book it will go through this step by step. good luck.
