SOURCE: katana won't start

Are the spark plugs firing ? Did you add a stabilizer to the fuel prior to storage?? If the plugs are firing, I would suggest that you drain the fuel bowl on the carburetors, disconnect the fuel lines and spray carbs full of a good carburetor / fuel injection cleaner and let it set a couple of days,then try to start again . If it still won't start, youmay have to disassemble the carbs and clean them in carb solvent.
If your bike has fuel injection, the gunk buildup from the gas may not be your problem. LAST RESORT Take it to a bike mechanic.
Hope this helps

It sounds like it is time for a new battery. While the regulator could have been damaged during the jumping procedure, the symptoms you've outlined still point to a bad battery. Motorcycle batteries do not fair well from a complete discharge. Sometimes removing the all of the acid and replacing with new acid will provide another year of service, but not always.

My reasoning for the thinking it is the battery is because of it not being kept charged over the winter and it was working fine before then (charging system usually does not get damaged from non-use). If the bike died when you removed the cable while it was idling, this would suggest the battery as well as a magneto based charging system is very weak at idle and relies on the battery to supplement it during periods of idle. To test my theory, jump the bike off, rev it to 1200 to 1500 RPM and disconnect the jumper cable. If the bike continues to run but dies when you let it idle, then the charging system is functioning and the battery needs to be replaced.

Check to be certain the new battery is good. They can be bad from the factory with an internal short. Next check the fuses. Chances are there is a blown fuse.

voltage regulator probably,intermittent problem or alternator diode burned .Ask a mechanic to check your voltage and your flowing current in the system while idling

Hi Anonymous, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections.
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.

Rode home new 883;, next morning bike wouldnt start, battery weak. would not turn engine over. bike is 2009 with 40 miles, bought from dealer


how old is your battery? if it is 2 to 3 years old it may need to be
replaced . charge it up and see if it keeps charge, crank your bike
run it for a short time 4 or 5 min. shut it , and try to start it. if it
drags when cranking go buy new battery.

So i bought a batt for my 1999 suzuki katana 750 i rode a couple a times let the bike sit for a couple of days now when i tried to start it it sounds like it wants to start but it will not kick over...


Put the battery on charge - while it is charging remove and clean the sparkplugs - once the plugs are clean and refitted also make sure all the HT leads are secure - check the fuses, have a once-over of all the connectors and cabling and make sure everything is dry and secure.
Likely the battery was never fully charged to begin with - but still clean the plugs since they will be fouled from the non-starting.

If my 2005 jeep sits and i do not drive it everyday, it will not start the next day. Had the battery changed a year ago.


You can tell if the battery is weak while it is cranking. If that is the case then battery need to recharged. When a car is not running regularly, it doesn't have the charge from the alternator so it becomes weak. If there is no sign of weakness in cranking then the problem is not from the battery, but it is from lacking of two basic things: ignition and / or fuel. Need to find out what is the root cause. Good luck.

Yamaha TW 200 starts but won't run.


If the bike has sat for a long period of time without being run - the gas that is sitting in the carb(s) will shellac.. Then the carb(s) would need to be cleaned and "rebuilt"..
