Bad starting is down to damp in the electricks give every thing a good spray with WD40 that should sort out the problem as for the card its not to hard to adjust the settings but its limited to how far you can take it

Hi I have a rmz 450 on a 06 and the valves needed doing so I put new valves in reseated them set up timing all ok went out on the bike no prob started good as always didn't ride again for a few weeks got...


If the timing is right and you have spark, then it could only be a fuel issue. Does it have enough fuel getting to it? Have you checked the needle and seat in the carbs for wear or debris. Try undoing the fuel bowl drain plug and let some fuel out, if nothing comes out, try turning your fuel on. If on, and it is a vacuum tap. Check that you are getting good vacuum for the fuel to come out. If it is a gravity feed, take the hose off the carb and turn tap on to see if enough fuel is running out.

HONDA GL1500 wont start when it rains


Easy! moister is getting into your electrical system. Sounds like its starting at your switches and probably just need to pull the switches apart, clean the contact points and apply a little grease. Your best bet is to not let the bike get soaking wet, cover it and and only wash it by wetting a towel and not spraying it with a hose.

Hey guys, i have a rmz 250 2005, i have heard this specific model came out the Kawa factory, is this true?? and if so, are the valve clearance settings the same??as the rmz still battles to start, should i...


Call a Honda dealer with the frame number on the bike. They should be able to tell you where the bike was manufactured. The valve settings should be the same no matter where the bike was made. There is a proper way to start the engine. Four controls are on your bike to assist in starting. Below are generic instructions.
  • The choke, used when the engine is cold. Pull the red knob for choke.
  • The " Hot Start " Lever, used when the engine is hot. Pull the lever to lean the fuel mix when the engine has been running.
  • The de-compression lever, always used.
  • The throttle, used to prime the cylinder, (power valve).
Don't kick, instead, push the kick lever downward. You will feel the back pressure as the piston is going upward on the compression stroke to the point the pressure is great enough that the kick lever "locks up". You are very close to TDC. NOW, pull in the de-compression lever. Push the kick lever a little bit more to get the piston past TDC. Now release the de-compression lever. Give the throttle a 1/4 turn then let it snap closed. A diaphragm, (Power valve), in the carb gives a shot of gas when this is done. DO NOT do this multiple times because you will flood the engine. Leave the throttle closed when kicking. A flooded engine will often backfire. Now give a strong kick through the full sweep of the kick start lever. Quickly get your foot off the kick lever at the end of the kick to avoid any chance of "kickback" from the kick lever. This happens in the case of a misfire, aka > backfire. It can be very painful, and can even break a leg. I am serious about that. Repeat the process (but without the throttle priming), for six kicks. After six kicks go ahead and twist the throttle again for a second priming. A good battery, a clean spark plug, a clean carb and clean air filter will also aid in starting. Note that not all carbs have a power valve. When a power valve is not present you should crack the throttle open only 1/8 inch from closed on each kick.

Electrical problem


Sorry to hear about your problem. The good news is it wont last long and you can most likely fix it with a can of WD40. When you washed the bike you got the wires wet and that can cause a short which will prevent the bike from igniting. Another thing you want to make sure did not happen is getting water in the air filter, if that happens you will **** water in through the carbs and that can be an issue. Water is heavier than gas and it will not **** through the lets in the carbs. You may need to drain the float bowls to insure there is no water in them. One drop in each bowl is enough to stop the bike from running.
Use the WD40 to spray in all the fuses that you took out. I think you just got everything wet. Water in the carbs may be the bigger issue.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.
Regards,
RSelvy

1100 problem


I had a problem like yours and it was dirty into de carbs and in the fuel key. A good test to know if all the cilinders work is to put a wet paper or a tisue on the exhaust head of each cilinder and then you can see if they work...this is to know if the lost of power is becouse the engine doesn´t work complete...You can make this test in different revs...
