Unable to start


Run a compression check looking for stuck valve or rings. A motor will not run without compression. 30 years will do strange things to a motor.

Bike has been sitting a year, new battery, new spark plugs, will crank but will not start.


The fuel in the tank may have crystallised and clogged either the needle valves if carb( which will force fuel out through the overflows if you change the fuel. If injection it may find its way through, with new fuel but get some injection cleaner as a tank additive. Job 1 drain out tank, shake some new fuel around to wash it out job 2 remove fuel tap check for a build up of gung and crystallised fuel job 3 new fuel up. all the best markj3594@gmail.com

No ignition spark after battery change


Are you sure it has no spark or are assuming that because it cranks and wont start?? It may just be stale gas if you have spark. Personally, IF it really has no spark before I tried anything else I 'd charge the battery. Some bikes are EXTREMELY intolerant of low voltage levels and while you may have enough juice to turn it over, it may not have enough to run the coils,ignitors,etc. . It ran when you put the new battery in so that tells me its more than likely OK otherwise and the battery may have simply discharged a tad from sitting and now cranking it. Trickle charge it (2 amp) overnight and try it again.

Bike wont start


I posted this for a similar problem, maybe it can help. Are you sure it's getting gas to the carbs? Some people don't realize the 99-02 SV650 has a vacuum-actuated fuel pump, and sometimes it can get stuck. Mine has had this problem, and it took me a while to determine it was the problem. I would guess it only happens after the bike has been sitting a while (ours unfortunately sat for a year or so without being run).

Best way to check it is to lift the tank (it's bolted to the frame on the right side of the engine just under the tank). Unplug the line toward the front of the motorcycle from the fuel pump, and connect some spare fuel hose to it running to a can next to the bike (don't want to get gas everywhere!). With everything else still connected, crank the bike for a short period to see if any fuel comes out (shouldn't take long). If not, then move backward and ensure fuel will flow from the vacuum-petcock when the bike is cranked. If that does work, your fuel pump needs some work. I was able to take mine apart and unstick it.

Yamaha 2001 Raptor 660, sat for a year, wont start, starter is ok, battery is ok, spark is great, but it sounds like starter is not engaging, when it does engage bike just cranks and cranks.


Your gas is bad.  I have to change my all the time If your starter turns but dose not engage the starter barring is out DO NOT BUY STOCK. buy after market when you replace that.  they
