Hi, 4413channa and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.*
8. Intake air leak.
9. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.*
10. Enricher valve inoperative.*
11. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
12. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
13. Faulty ignition coil.
14. Valves sticking.
* Carbureted models.

START WHEN COLD WARMS UP WONT REFIRE NO SPARK


Not sure what year, make, model of bike, but basic testing should be done back to coil(s), if the bike fires when cold but once warmed up will not fire, could be a bad coil, or sometimes it could be a bad cam or crank sensor causing it not to start. If it's a newer bike say 2000 or newer, I'd take a look at the sensors first.

I have a 1994 katana 750 gsx-f i can fully charge the battery and when i do the reading it comes up with 13.4 and when its started and tested i was get 15 volts now if i leave the bike sit and let it get...


should not be 15 volts 14v - 14.30v max 15 volts wile running is over charging the battery. and you dont want that as over time the battery over heats and can go bang. check the voltage regulator...

Sorry about the spell trying to eat but my car cut off on me so I was thinking that I ran out of gas so I put some gas in my car an now it's no power inside my car no light inside out my head light come on...


Cranking HARD ?
No Cranking ?
Smell Gas ?
Cranks Fast ?
POSSIBLE - * Battery dead or weak (alternator may not be charging right or gone bad) . * No fire coil pack(s) / rotor button distributor cap Faulty . * Cranks fast ( getting fire but no gas )
FIXES - * JUMP START IF POSSIBLE and if car starts take off 1 battery cable if car dies the ALTERNATOR IS BAD . * Pull 1 plug wire off and check for a hot spark or any spark for that matter .
Could be multiple things with multiple fixs need more info for a more precise answer. Start with the basics POWER +/- , FUEL , AIR , FIRE

When my solenoid fried, I replaced the starter on my 02 FLHRSEI with an aftermarket starter. I have 103,000 miles on the bike and lately it starts hard. I have never changed the fuel filter canister...


If the starter is turning your engine over fast enough, it's not the starter. If it's struggling to turn the engine over, it may indeed be the starter. With over a 100 thousand miles on the bike, I'd suspect the fuel filter would need to be changed. One other cause could be low compression. An engine with low compression requires the starter to turn the engine over longer and faster to get the engine to fire off. I call this "spinning the engine up" like a jet engine has to do. The RPM will increase as the starter spins it and eventually it'll fire. This would mean that it's time for a top end job including rings and a valve job. But, it could be something to do with the fuel injection system. I don't know anything about fuel injection. Sorry. But, I do know that it's supposed to sense the temperature of the engine somehow and enrichen the mixture when the engine is cold.

Good Luck

I have a 1982 yahama 650 hard to start cold if you spray carb cleaner on a rag & cover the intake it will start & run. But you can crank & crank otherwise. It fires & runs for 10 to 15 secs...


There were a couple of different carbs fitted to this era of bike. One of them has a diaphramme that works a 'fuel pump' system and floods the carb as the throttle is opened. They will split and cause problems.

Zl 600 1986 is hard starting


Ok, the correct proceedure for starting a cold engine is as follows, pull the choke fully on, and crank over the engine, DO NOT use the throttle when cranking the engine, when the bike fires and starts, slowly turn down the choke until a smooth fast idle achieved. The important thing to remember is, do not use the throttle while the choke is on, as this lets it **** in cold air, and makes for a harder start, remember the choke is there to restrict air flow, make a rich fuel mixture, for cold starting. If that does not work, then mabey u have a carby problem, make sure your choke is coming on.

Its the cold start sensor, happened to me a few years ago. Sensor located just behind thermostat housing, there are two and you will see the wiring plugs going to them. I am sure it is the front one. Cheap repair, lucas part is about £6.
Be careful though, steel into alloy! ease it out gently and take time putting it back in to avoid cross-thread. Fiddly job but not hard.

Next time this happens, take out 1 spark plug and inject a little gas, replace the plug. (You can do both f you want but 1 is enough) If the bike fires up it is prob not getting gas for some reason…
