You need to have the carbs cleaned the fuel was probably not been drain from the carburetors and has aged,it turns to a varnish like substance and needs to be cleaned.

I have a 99 ktm 250 sx. Had to get cylinder replated and a new piston. I put the bike back together and oil was leaking from the front lower end of the cylinder and i wont idle. Took the bike back ap


If there is a leak in the head gasket it will never run properly. Maybe the carburetor is plugged if it has sat for a while. The gas/oil mixture can go bad over time. The leak could be from a loose gas line. Or possibly even oil dripping from the oil filter if you just cleaned and re-oiled it.

Can't get my V Star Classic started after sitting all winter.....


Hi, Kyle 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 2-3 years old 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.

There is a leakage problem of petrol in my bike (Suzuki Max100) when my bike stand's idle, after some time i can see the spilled petrol below the engine & wet surface of engine cover, recently i have...


Hi,

You firstly need to determined where the leak is coming from.

Turn the fuel off at the fuel tap. "Does it still leak?" if yes it may be that the tap is the issue.

Try and find the highest point where you can see petrol,

Is it around the hose joints? If it is you may need to replace and put clamps on the hose.

Is it leaking from the carburetor. If yes you may need pull the carburetor apart, clean it and possible put a new carburetor kit through it.

The main thing to remember is that the leak can only be between the tank and the carburetor.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Dave

2003 Yamaha Road Star 1600 leaks gas from underneath when I start it.


I take it when you say gas you are refering to petrol . gas leake ,don't use your bike untill its been repaired, many bikes have burst into flames through gas leakes .Remember petrol does not burn its the vapour given of that catches fire .

1994 Kawasaki ZZR-400 Leaks oil and doesnt start sometimes.


that box is called the air box, its where you engine breathes in its air. you say its leaking oil? these boxes are normally a bit oily but only really surface oil. If you can actually see liquid oil you have a problem with your petrol shut off. When the bike isnt running petrol will leak into the engine through the piston. When you start the bike all the petrol mixed with the engine oil will be pumped back into the air box. also check the level of the engine oil, if too much has been put in there then that can also be pumped back into the air box. If the petrol and oil has been mixing you must change the oil as petrol thins the oil and your bike could catch fire, the engine wear will be really bad.

Battery will not hold charge after being charged. bike sat for yr


You never did say what kind of bike and engine size, the bigger the bike the more juice it requires....Charge your battery fully ...it should read almost 13 volts or more if it doesn't you have a defective or poorly prepared batt....this is not uncommon,that's why a voltage meter is so important for telling you what's really going on. Clean your ground wire from battery to frame and make sure your batt terminals are tight...if no go again,.take your batteryback to the store and have it LOAD tested i'll bet it won't pass the test...they can also test the voltage coming from the batt...but read that load test yourself.....you see ,your batterystarts w/ a jump but isn;t putting out enough power to start your bike on it;s own....folow this letter step thru step and you should be back on the road in no time.....Good Luck to you friend.....Tim
