Question about 2008 kawasaki Ninja 250R

1 Answer

I did not winterize my bike. I tried to start it today bc it was warm ~55 degrees outside. It turns over at a normal rate but it will not start. I tried to bump start it and was unsuccessful. However I did this on a flat surface and I am not very big. It's possible I just didn't have enough speed. Any advice for me?

Bike don't want to start


It sounds to me like your bike has been in the cold and the oil is thick , in which case you should carry out the following.Do not force the kicksatrt, you may damage the kickstart spring or gears etc.
Try and get the bike in the warm (sunshine if you have any).Remove the battery and charge it until the voltage is about 13 volts.When the battery is charged and the bike has warmed up above 0 C, then try starting again. All should be OK. Following this, you should change the oil to a thin multiigrade oil say" 10-40 and preferably a graphited oil. Drain and clean the carbureter and jets.The problem you have is common in winter so next winter try and keep the bike somewhere warm.Hope this solves your problem.

I have a 2008 Sportster XL883 It has a loud tick coming from the front lifter area when it warms up seems to get louder when it warms up. The colder it is outside the longer it takes. Is it a bad li


I have the same problem with mine(2008 XL883L), its at the shop right now. its my first harley so all the noises are new, my gsxr doesn't make a single tick. from what i'm told by alot of others that have the bike is that the engines are noisy, so a lot of first time riders of them think there is a problem. took it to the shop just to be sure, they said it sounds like a tappet, if it is its around $150-200. called them today, they said the synthetic oil has started breaking down where i sit in traffic (nc) but the engine itself is fine. $65 for labor and a oil change to regular oil.

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix with a digital climate control system. The heat quit working, it doesn't blow out any heat. Now that it is warm outside the air stopped blowing out any air. The digital temperature on the climate control is not correct. When it states that it is below 30 degrees on the ext and it is warm outside the air wont be cold. Once it starts going above 30 degrees the air gets colder. Today the blower stop working all together. Was told it maybe the climate control unit was bad. You can hear the door opening/shutting when you switch the temp from cold to hot. But there was no heat blowing out whatsoever in the winter time. Could you please give me your opinion on whether or not it is the climate control unit or something else?

I have a 2 1/2 ton unit. If the outside temperature is 95 degrees. What should I expect from my unit in cooling my house.


If properly charged your unit should perform fine, having a dirty condensor at that temperature can cause problems not easily recognized.

A well insulated house should be able to maintain a 20 degree temperature difference whether its summer
or winter. No Mechanical cooling or heating involved
for at least 6-8hrs if not more.

If it never cools when it is 95 degrees outside the ambient outside temperature is not the problem.
At 95 degree out side air you should be seeing inside discharge air temperatures betwenn 48-55 degrees.

It is the load in the house that determines how long the unit will run at 95 degress.

When the outside temperature gets above 70 degrees it stalls and dies.  During the winter it worked fine.


It seems strange that you have this starting/no power issues when it over 70 degrees outside but not when it is cold. When it is cold the battery and starter are normally under more pressure to start the engine and it is also harder to burn and atomize fuel when it is cold.
The reason I suggest removing the trim panel and checking voltage at the ignition switch is that is the best place to start. The ignition witch has to have power present at the switch and must distribute that power as the key is turned to operate accessories and the starter motor when turned to the start position.

Hi; I hope You called a company that will honor any warranty on the heatpump. Sounds to Me like I would contact the original installer for more help or free replacement.Also at 55 or 75 degrees outside The heatpump should be providing toasty air. Only at close to freezing temps will You get a reduction in warm air and then the heat strips will help out then also check to see if the unit has outside air dampers and make sure they are closed..alpharome416

My frig. in the garage.. The freezer works great in summer months but in winter months it doesn't. Why is that?


Good day,
That is normal. The thermostat that runs the whole machine is located in the refrigerator compartment.
When it reaches normal temperature, it shuts off. In winter months that may mean as long as 12 hours or more. Thus not enough running time per day to keep the freezer near it's normal temperature.
Engineers design domestic refrigerators to be in an area comfortable to humans. Normally 70 degrees or higher. Thus your problem.
The only solution is to bring the machine inside.
Sorry.

Thank you for using FixYa

you didn't say what zone you're in but if you're north of southwest missouri you can forget about anything seeming warm below 30 degrees outside i tell all my customers to switch to emergency heat when temp's get below 25 for extended periods of time 2 days - weeks. either way you're at the mercy of the utility company on emergency heat you get hot heat and faster results heat pumps out of the box can only give you what they can generater from outside temperatures 35-55 they work great giving better than 3 to 1 but that falls off drastically when the temperature plunges

Throttel sticking


reeds and so forth. Then drained all the gas out. My throttle is somewhat sticking or not springing back quickly when I turn it. Is this do to the fact that it needs gas back in it to lube itor maybe just needs to be warmed up more? It was 40 deg F today. I haven't put gas in it because I am waiting for winter to end. Also When I add the gas back in the tank is there anything special I need to do before I try and start it? Like pump the throttle a few times or something. ,had the same problem. I popped of the the actuall throttle grip and under it was some caked in sticky stuff. Clean it off added a little lube and its good to go.,,,
