Question about Motorcycles
Posted by Anonymous on
Try a new sparkplug. If the bike has a battery, it may need to be replaced. Is the air filter clean? Remove the bowl on the bottom of the carburetor and dump it out then clean the carb and bowl with a spray carb cleaner. Is the kill switch on the handlebar working properly? Is there a side stand kill switch? Is gas flowing from the gas tank to the carb? A 2001 bike is 9 years old. It is probably time for new crankshaft seals and a de-carbon of the cylinder head and exhaust port. The muffler could have an internal collaspe causing back-pressure that will not allow the engine to run. Remove the exhaust where it connects to the cylinder, check to see that the exhaust port is not plugged with carbon, ( the port should be about the size of quarter ), now try to start the bike without the exhaust hooked up. Check the fuses. Check all wire connections. This list should help as it is generic and would apply to most any two stroke bike.
