The carbs are gummed up with varnish from sitting so long. Clean the carbs.

My piaggio zip100 won't start been stood 2yrs drained fuel add new changed spark plug and new battery still won't start any clues


Hi, Sarah 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 3 years or older 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.

The bike had stood unused for 3 years. Had the tank cleaned (rust) and changed the device that channels fuel out of the tank. The bike (2007 Grand King 125) starts and cuts off after a few revs.


Hi,
Sounds like you have to pull down the carburetor and thoroughly clean it. Over the years the bike did not started debris and calcium deposit might have blocked the air/fuel jets.
Clean it and soaked the carbruretor for a day with lacquer thinner, so that all the air/fuel passages will be clean out. A high pressure air will help the clean up!
Thanks for using FixYa!

You should replace the fuel also as fuel deteriorates over time.Drain the tank and replace with new fuel.Also drain the carb.as it will still have old fuel in it.

1986 Suzuki GSXR400 will not start


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the choke.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
14. 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.
15. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
16. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
17. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
18. Faulty neutral, clutch, kickstand safety switch.
19. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
20. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
21. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
22. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
23. Check for engine trouble codes.

MY MATES SONS GSX 400 (94) HAS STOPPED WE CAN'T GET A SPARK. CHECKED THE PLUGS AND CHANGED THEM CHECKED THE IGNITION PICK UPS.. VOLTS GOING DOWN READ 6.8 COMING BACK UP READ 5.8.. NOT SURE IF THIS IS WRONG...


Just a thought, have you checked all the fuses are located correctly and connectors are all mating. CDI units do fail and there's no way of testing it at home, all you can do is check for supply voltage 12V, ground or negative bonding (using an ohm meter/multimeter) check for varying voltage from ignition pulse generator, finally check voltage at the coils, you should expect to see a fairly high voltage 11-12V. Not sure where you would get one as it's quite a rare bike, a Suzuki dealer would be your best bet, maybe a GSXR400 one will work but don't quote me on that.

YZ 250 STOOD FOR 5 MONTHS WILL NOT KICK OVER ANY HELPFUL IDEARS ?


Hi, if it's stood that long it may be that the fuel's gone off, had a lot that smells like dirty paint thinners after a couple of months & bikes don't want to run on it. I'd drain the carby & tank & try fresh fuel. May just be badly loaded up if fuel was left on etc, so maybe remove sparkplug & give a few good kicks to clear it out, then refit & try. hope this helps :)
