SOURCE: engine wont start but turns over

If it smells fuel means that you overfilled the cylinders with gas.Take out the spark plugs and check if they fire.That way you are checking the ignitions coils too.If they fire,install new spark plugs and crank the engine with the choke pulled and no throttle at all.Assuming that your carbs are cleaned and corectlly adjusted.
If the coils don't fire then you should check the pulse generator sensor and make sure that it's pulse is transfered all the way up to the ECU.

Try this: remove your air-filter (prob. located under seat) and spray starter fluid in there. This should start it up and might clean out the problem. Make sure all gas lines are turned on as well. Sometimes after motors sit too long the mechanical parts tend to build up a thin layer of film and rust which causes them parts to stick or clog tiny air/fuel holes. If you can get it started with the starting fluid the motor self lubricants and the suction the bike creates might pull the rest of the debris threw and spit it out your exhaust.
Give me a thumbs up if this helps ya thanks!

Backfires may indicate that a valve is sticking open, so that you are not getting compression. I am assuming that no repairs or adjustments were done which might have messed up the timing of valves or ignition.

1993 Honda accord, the battery is good but when i try to start it it wont turn over. The alternator is good and all my fuses are good, why wont it turn over? Should i get a new starter?

To begin with, turning over means different things to different people.
Does the engine crank but not start, or not crank at all ?
If it cranks but does not start, Honda cars are known to have weak fuel pump relays which would need to be tested.

Where is the battery compartment on a honda ps125i 2007

It's inside the utility box compartment, under the seat. Near the seat lock, open the plastic lid to see the missing battery!
Hope that helps you!

Bke wont start

Hi there, try this sometimes the stand switch can make the bike not work if has got rusted at the back.and check or replace the coil., then check if you are getting a spark from the plug by putting the spark plug on top of the head. The next thing is if the bike turns over but not fire up, you need to strip down carb and clean jets, also check petrol value under the tank If you have a book it will go through this step by step. good luck.
