Hi,you need to drain all the fuel from the tank,,when you have fresh fuel in the tank,on the bottom of each carb bowl there is a screw,half undo each screw so the bowls drain until fresh fuel comes out,tighten up the screws and start her up.

My yahama maxim 650 wont full start running but it sounds like it wants too


Hey Nick, unfortunately it could be several things. As Tom Diffin mentioned carb gummed up or even bad fuel from sitting all winter. If your positive the spark plug is firing (pull plug, connect to plug wire, place within a couple mm of a metal bolt, CAUTION: hold with insulated pliers so you don't get shocked, bump starter and watch for a spark) then try a very small squirt of fuel (starting fluid would be great) into the park plug hole and replace the plug. Try to start if the engine fires and then dies you have narrowed it down to carb, fuel or timing. FYI get a motorcycle repair or operators manual that describes how to winterize your bike for long storage (check library, you can read for free and make a photo copy of a page cheap). Keep us updated and good luck.

Bike running rough at lower revs


If the bike sat without being used over the winter It could be bad gas. if gas sits without being used for an extended period of time it destabilizes and gums up carborators and fuel injectors, you need to add a fuel stabilizer to gas when storing for winter. To fix the problem the gas has to be drained from tank, then refil with fresh gas and appropriate amount of carborator/fuel injector cleaner/treatment. Then start the bike and let it run it should clean itself out and start running smooth. If bike did not sit unused for winter its possible they installed the wrong plugs sometimes they talk you into spending more money on platinum or split fire/gimmick plugs (always use the exact same plug that came in the bike when it was new!!!!!)

My suzuki gsxr 750 sat all winter and i didnt winterize it at all. the battery died... i charged it and my bike just wont start. It cranks over just won.t start. What should i do?


check spark plugs,check for spark. check fuel is good. possible needle and seat gummed up in carb float bowl. disasemble and clean with brake or carb cleaner.do not change float level. re assemble ,you can use the cleaner to help to fire the motor with a shot through the carb. make sure you cleaner says flammable. good luck.

95 sportster wont start. Everything was running fine until now.


do a basic test .try starting the bike, then take out a spark plug. is it wet or dry? if its dry, no gas getting into the combustion chamber. if its wet, place the thread of the pluged in spark plug against any engine metal, crank the engine and look for a good blue spark. no spark or an orange spark means ignition problem.

I winterized my bike last winter. I drained the fuel tank on my zx 750h. ran the motor to empty lines and now i refilled the tank but it wont start. what am i missing. It fired and ran for abou 10 seconds....


try new spark plugs. and for next winter you're better off not draining everything. best thing is add some fuel stabilizer and run it a few minutes once in a while. empty lines tanks and carbs attract moisture.

Bike not firing properly, plugs fouled


If you used the choke to start the bike last winter, you probably fouled the plugs. Depending on the age of the plugs, you can either clean and re-gap them or replace them with new, which also have to be checked for gap.
Secondly, if you did not run the bike out of fuel after starting it, chances are you have some build up in the carb jets. New, clean fuel and Techron or Seafoam gas treatment will help if it's not too bad. Follow directions on the can. I personally used Seafoam but Techron is recommended by Honda. Be sure to mix per instructions, which on Seafoam is 1 oz. per gal.

Will not start turns over ok but will not fire up


during the winter you can get build up on the tip of your spark plug that will prevent the engine from firing. remove the spark plug and soak it in gas for ten minutes or so. Dry it ogg with a clean towel reinstall it and it should start right up.
