It sounds like you have either a flat battery and there is not enough power to turn the engine, or the engine has hydrolocked with fuel.
Take the plugs out, remove anything that may cause a spark or ignite the fuel and remove the ignition coil low voltage supply.
Spin the engine over bearing in mine petrol will blow out of the piston almost anywhere!!!
Allow the petrol to evaporate and then put the plugs back in and put the wires back on the coil.

After gas sits in the gas tank & carbeurator(s) for a long period of time. it turns into varnish, stinks like hell. you will need to remove your carb(s), and take them completely apart. clean out all the jets, clean out the choke also. put it all back together, with some fresh gasoline, and you'll be good to go bro......

There may be water in the carb float bowl from condensation. There should be a drain screw on the side or bottom of the bowl. Just remove the screw and let it drain then replace the screw. Turn the gas on, wait for the bowl to fill up then try to start it. Is the air filter clean? Install a new spark plug.

Bike sat for 2 months.it was full of fuel when it was parked


Sometimes when a bike sits, the floats get corroded and stick and sometimes they stick open allowing fuel to overfill the carburetor, if the intake is open when parked, the fuel will run right into the combustion chamber, pass by the piston rings and into the cranckcase.
I saw this happen serveral times.

Check your oil level and its probably overfilled, but its a gas and oil mixture so do not just drain out enough oil to the correct level, drain all the oil and change the oil filter.

Now you'll also have to pull the carburetor and have in thouroughly cleaned, jets removed and soaked, rinsed and blown through with compressed air.

After your carbs are cleaned and a new oil change your bike will be good to go.

Some people prefer to use seafoam added to their gasoline, to help prevent the floats from sticking and the jets clogging.
If possible it is also helpful to start the bike at least weekly and let it warm up to temp.
especially if you plan not to ride it for a while. If you fear that the gas will run into the motor again from sitting, be sure to turn the fuel petcock to off.

Engine conked out whilst riding then wouldnt start untill 20mins


Drain the carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side of each carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, (not all bikes have a water trap bowl). Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carbs to fill with gas. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetors from the engine.

FOR EACH
carb > Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Install an in-line fuel filter. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

Also, sync the carbs such that the slides on both carbs move at the same exact instant when the gas is slowly increased from idle speed.

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.
