1. Are you sure you are getting gas to the carbs?
2. Are you getting gas into the cylinders? - are the spark plugs wet after repeatedly trying to start it?
3. Are you getting fire to the spark plugs?

Once you have confirmed all the above are working...

1982 yamha maxim 650 turns over but wont start battery is charged, turns over fine just wont fire up

you need to do basic diagnoses - 1 compression test,should be better than 130 lb and if in good order around 170 and all cyclinders within 14lb. 2 - check and make sure you have spark at all 4 spark plugs. 3- check and make sure you have fuel in carbies by undoing drain screw in each bowl, if above 3 all ok you probably have stale fuel and will need to remove carbs and clean out jets. this model also suffers from worn butterfly shaft through carbs which creates air leak and the manifolds to the head also leak and **** air.

I have a 1992 Suzuki GSX-R 750, that wont start

It is in the carbs, A bike will act like that when it needs to be jetted, most jets are not adj, but whoever built the bike, must have messed with the carbs, you can go back to factory settings, which is about 1 1/4 turns out, and try it, you might need to get new jets, you might want to try dyno jet kit, they are adj and work great.. I had to do my bike, the exhaust was burning my eyes, backfired, wouldn't run, factory jets didn't work. But I found a dyno jet kit on ebay, and it works great. But before you take the carbs off, take a piece of heavy paper and cut the air intake in half with the paper to see what it does, then cut by 1/3, then 1/4, just to see if the intake is messing with you. Check it out, hope it helps.

I have a miss fire

Recheck the firing order; 1-6-5-4-3-2

On the distributor passenger side radiator to fire wall. 2-4-6-coil
On the distributor drivers side radiator to fire wall. 3-1-5

Cylinder passenger side radiator to fire wall. 2-4-6
Cylinder drivers side radiator to fire wall. 1-3-5

Good luck and also check the distributor cap again for proper seating.

Are my carbs blocked

you are going to have to open up the carbs and look at your jets screws. take a thin wire poke it through and blow it out.. replace and enjoy the like new feeling ride.

My Honda Fireblade will not start?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, confirm presence and consistency of spark on the plug ends when cranking. Thereafter check for fuel reaching inside the cylinders by cranking with sparkplugs in place but not HT wires connected. Remove the plugs and note for presence of fuel.

Perform above spark and fuel tests; postback results.

Note: Almost always, the carbs has to be pulled out for a complete cleanup. The old gasoline could have turned to varnish like substance and coated the ports, jets, passage ways and carb bowl/walls.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Honda cbr 600 wont start

hi, each lead has the specific number on it. if you do this correctly then they genrally give you an idea to where the sit in the coils( the way they bend :-) ) also i believe the coils are better off been attached to the frame once you are sure leads are in corect order and possitioned correctly in the coils.i just presumed the coils neaded earthing. make sure battery is pleny charged as a bad battery can just hinder. it is also very easy to flood the bike so just check the plugs again. if they are unusually wet then dry them off and try again . otherwise maybe try cleaning all electics.

hope this somehow helped
