I have a 2005 with only 3000 miles on it. I could not start the bike and thought my original battery was weak. I had it on a trickle charger with a green light, but as soon as I tried to start the bike a...


As this point you can't get the bike to turn over is this correct? If the engine is turning over but won't start then yes the gas is most likely the problem. Gas after sitting for even a month can evaporate from the fuel system and it leave a fouls smelling deposit behind that clogs up everything. It stinks and it's a mess to clean out. To prevent this from happening use a product that is called "Fuel Stabilizer" in the last few tanks of gas before you put the bike away for the winter or a dormant period. If the motorcycle is in a hot climate or heated garage this foul smelling gas can happen within a few weeks.

Tip

How to store your motorcycle for winter. Storing your motorcycle.


As the summer months start to come in, we all like to get our motorcycles out and start riding them, but i hear a lot of people saying help, my bike wont start! That is because when you last parked it in the shed for the start of winter, then you made no preparations. With a few simple steps, next summer, you can get your bike out, and fire it up without any problems, ready to ride. There are things you must do when you go into storage, and a few things to do when you bring your bike out.
OK,so winter is approaching, and you want to put your bike away in the shed.
First thing you need to do is drain some fluids. Drain your engine oil. Then drain your gas tank and carburetors. It is important to drain the carbys, as the fuel left in the float bowl will go bad. You can choose to totally drain your gas tank, or fill it to the top with gas. Storing a tank full with gas, leaves no room for moisture to form, causing rust on the inside of steel tanks. Next, you need to also disconnect one lead from your battery, or even better, if you have a trickle charger hooked up to it. Thats about it really. Also,if you are confident in doing so, remove spark plug, or plugs, and spray some penetrating oil down into each cylinder, turn engine over to work it through. This will prevent any moisture or corrosion from forming on the inside of your cylinders. It is also a good idea to clean or replace your spark plugs each year anyway.
Now it's summer, and you want to ride, just roll your bike out. Put in some fresh engine oil, a fresh tank of gas, and a fully charged battery, you are ready to go!

My fzr wont start. I checked the air filter, it had gas in but about six months ago it fell over in a trailer so i think it may be from that. The battery is good. It just wont turn over.


My bike has fallen over many times in the driveway lol but always starts after. Was the bike stored for six months? The gas may be bad. I would drain the tank and try fresh fuel. Also check your fuel line. IT May be pinched off from the fall restricting fuel flow. Also check the fuel filter, may be clogged from old gas too.

My battery died and i lost my charger so i bought a universal charger and it says the battery is fully charged, but when i put it in my camera wont turn on at all, a little red light flashes when i hit the...


dear sir,


the first suspect is your battery,which is running in low battery....kindly recharge the battery for few hours with the original charger,because the charging volt varies from battery to battery of the same brand and using this universal charger is definitely going to harm ur camera very worse,kindly go for the original charger and charge the battery and then put your camera on........


if still the problem is the same ,the problem is usually caused by virus and sometimes it might be software failure also, which causes some of the menu not to function,the only solution is to flash ur cam software from the nearest olympus service centre and it is going to be done free of cost,as your camera is under warranty .......


thank you...take care

Battery isnt charging.


any battery that has been completely flat can often get whats called sulphated plates if this happens the battery may never recharge and if it did take some charge it wont be much good after, the battery has had it realy the only this you could try is a very slow long charge but even this may not work,,,as a last dich try putting an asprin into each sell,,, yes thats right an asprin it dose work some times but for the life of me i dont know why, it just dose! as for whats the best battery,,,its all down to price at the end of the day, if its a cheapy type battery it wont last very long but il give you a good tip,,,,buy your self a 12 volt solar charger of say 2.5 watts a 1.5watt will just about do for a small battery,, when your going to lay the bike up the next time hook up the solar charger to the battery and forget it,,, the solar charger only needs daylight to work but sun light is better, and it will keep the battery toped up all winter i use them on my bikes (BMW 750cc 35amhr battery fitted) put on at the begining of winter took off in spring and they start first time every time,,,free power,,good huh!

My garage got very cold during the month of December and my bike does not want to start now. It had started but it turned off and smells like it is flooded. What could be the problem?


Bike should be fuel injected so very hard to flood. Most likely battery was weak from cold and couldn't turn over and spark enough to start. Try charging battery for a few hours, beware of sparks if you smell gas. Hook charger up then turn on.

My kx450f hasnt been started in 2 months and now it wont kick over. is it the carb?


Your bike has a computerized ignition module or AC-CDI. I suspect the storage of you bike may have allowed the battery to discharge below the minimum voltage required for the ignition module to function. Charge the battery and also drain a small amount of gas from the bottom of the carb(s). Note whether there is free flow of gas from the tank to refill the carb bowl(s).

Bike has set for about a month. New battery was 4


Your battery looses about 1% per month sitting. Shooting 50 amps into your little battery didnt do it any good even though you felt better. You might have a dead cell but I doubt it in a 4 month old battery. You can do a hydro test on it (good reading is 1200) and a volt reading (above 10 is ok) or maybe just replace it.

I suggest you put it on trickle charge for 24 or more hours.

If you regularly let your bike set for more than a week, you may want to consider adding a fuel stabilizer which will prevent or at lease reduce the harmful buildup of varnish and other gunk in your fuel system. I like Sta-bil but there are others. You might inquire at the Honda shop what they recommend. You might also want to use something in the fuel to clean the system - popular is injector cleaner but I am not personally endorsing this. Ask the parts guy at your Honda shop.

I hope this helps you ...

'07 Triumph Bonneville idles but wont accelerate


What happens when you try to accelerate?

Does the exhaust smell 'weird' when it's idling?

The most likely problem, especially with the bike sitting up during summer, would be gas has gone stale. If the bike sits long enough, the gas will actually turn into a varnish.

Drain the tank, refill with fresh gas, and let it run a while.
Basically, you have to run out whatever gas is between the tank and the cylinders, so the fresh gas can get to the cylinders.

I'd put a box fan blowing on the front of the bike to help keep the ehat down. Blip the throttle after a few inutes. Depending onhow much old gas is 'stored' in the fuel lines and such, it may take 10 or 20 minutes to burn out the old gas. Keep blipping every few minutes, and let it cool down after 20 minutes. Some bikes have short fuel path and clear in 2 minutes at idle, I've seen custom setups that took over an hour.
