Check to see if your front spark plug is wet when you run the bike. If it is then your spark might not be strong enough. this could be a bad coil or ignitor. If your plug does'nt get wet then clean and rebuild your front carb. check to make sure your itntake manifold is not cracked or dry rotted and causing a vacum leak.

Why FZR600 seems to lose two cylinders while driving, carb or spark problem?


if carbs are clean and not flooding etc then try finding out which cyls are off then swop plug caps over from good cyls and see if problem moves , if yes then fit a set of 4 new plug caps ! if no then do carbs again !!

Only running on rear cylinder


You are Not getting spark to ur front cylinder. Swap your spark plug, if not then replace your front plug wire. if this is still not the problem ad you are sure the coil is good then look into the wire that gives the coil signal to fire

I started the bike and was at full throttle when running but throttle was not sticking maybe floats stuck,so i took carb off cleaned it and put it back on know bike won't start at all ,i have spark going...


Are you certain the throttle butterfly or slide (depending on what model bike you have) is seated...if the actual throttle in the carb throat is not closing, starting bike cold will be very difficult as you are feeding in too much air.

I have a 1983 cb550sc honda that has a starting problem. when it's cold it only runs on no.1 cyl and all other exh pipes are cold. i have checked all systems and can't find the problem. compression is...


I certainly wouldn't rule out a fuel restriction, either in tank where fuel drains to line, or line(s) to carburetors. When cold, more fuel required, plus once engine starts to run, vacuum from carbs may overcome restriction, as well as less fuel required. My guess is that heavy acceleration is a problem even when warm as well. Doesn't take long to check in tank to see if filter/screen in tank is plugged at all, as well as remove fuel line for carbs and use compressed air (carefully) to clean out line(s) as well as blow back into tank to dislodge debris at screen in tank, but if there is debris, remove tank and flush good. Any in-line filters should be replaced as well.

Hard to start,new bike only 20 miles carb clean valves correct comp good great spark.all work done by factory suzuki tech. dealersphip stmppppped! new bike should run


If you have a good spark and fuel is getting to the cylinders ,check commpression .If compression is good ,Try rubbing pencil lead over plug points ,( This will give a greater spark ) or heat up plugs on gas ring till hot and replace quickly while plugs still hot ..Don't forget to wear gloves.Get a friend to help .and cut down the time of putting plugs back in engine .

96 Shadow. 1 cyl cuts out after heating up. Then engine runs on 1 cylinder.


After heating up.. I would check for spark on that cylinder when it is warm... could be a coil going bad.
Just a thought...

I have a 1974 dt 250 same as an dt 360 the bike has sat in a barn about 4 yrs it will not start removed and cleaned the gas tank went thur the carb new plug used ignition coil compression about 50 to 75...


Compression is too low!

Replace the piston rings.

Also check continuity from engine to frame till high-tension coil...
Check if breaker points aren't dirty ( clean out with fine sandpaper )
Check breakerpoint settings

Missing, back firing just working really bad!


im not certain as i dont have a maintanance manual for that bike, but intake valve clearance should be approx .004 and exhaust valves should be appxox .008 also you may consider taking the coils to a shop and have them tested. coils after warming up will begin to fail once they start to go bad. spark will be great when the bike is cold, but once it warms up, spark begins to fade and hit and miss.. this may be the problem. hope this helps.

My FZR600 won't start. No mods, all stock. I got it a month ago and it had been stored over the winter with no stabilizer. It wouldn't run, so I cleaned out the tank, made sure the fuel lines were clear,...


These things are really temperamental.The plugs are fouled again..I had the same bike and went through the same thing..It doesnt take much to foul them..Get some new plugs and she'll run like a beaut..Just remember not to choke it to much..Thats where the plug fouling happens the most..Always keep a spare with you and you'l always be on the good..It will work!!Have a great night!!!!!!!!
