First of all remove the spark plugs and check, if dirty clean the plugs and set the gaps. Now crank to flush out any overflow in the cylinder. replace the plugs.
Check the fuel filter and the fuel lines. check to see if there is any restriction of fuel flow to the cylinder. Replace fuel if the fuel was dirty and clean the tank.
Now crank with the spark plug to see the intensity of the spark. if Ok replace the plug and crank.
If there is not ignition check and reset the spark timing.

Left bike on at work..battery died, bought new battery "ready start" still no power


Hi, Ramessu and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
10. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

Bike have spark and feul all fuse are fine dut dont want to start behing standing for 5months now help me to start it want ride it please


This bike has fuel injection and will not start if the battery is flat or has a low charge bumping it will not work
if you have had cold weather over the last five months I would expect that the battery is dead and will need replacing
when you have replaced the battery it should be fine

Hi, Anonymous if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 3 years or older when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

2008 Hyosung GT650S I think my side stand relay is causing my bike not to start. The Stator was replaced recently and the battery seems to be holding a charge fine. Sometimes the bike just won't...


What I would suggest then is to bridge the side stand switch. If the switch stays open circuit, it will never start but if you bridge the wires before the switch then the bike should start and have now solved the problem for the interim or you if it does not start you know you have to look elsewhere.

Please get back if you require anything else or give favorable feedback.

Thank you

Hi!!!!! i have an kawasaki zx6r 1998 and it dosent want to start , i started it 2 days ago, but today it dosent want i charged battery, and when i push start button it dosent do nothing, i checked coil...


Check the clutch, neutral and side stand safety interlocks.
Double check that the bike is in neutral, and the clutch is pulled in when trying to start the bike.
If the bike is in gear with the side stand down, the bike cuts off all ignition.
If the clutch isn't pulled in, the starter won't engage.
Check all these safety interlock switches, and make sure you are in neutral with the clutch in when trying to start the bike.

My BMW r1200rt motor bike will turn over and runs for about 30 seconds and then runs down like it is starved of fuel can any one help


Hi, Traceyhanlon for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

The bike sat for nine months I kept it in the garage and covered but when try starting nothing happens but oil light


Sounds like the battery may not be charged. Put a charger on the battery, bring to a full charge. Try starting. If it won't crank, locate a load tester and check the battery for weakness/dead cell. If the battery is not the problem, the starter/starter solenoid may have corroded/dirty contacts.

Engine won't turn over. Has been sitting for


if the starter wont turn the engine over try putting the bike on its center stand plonking it in top gear and turning the rear wheel to see if the engine is sezed up,, it may just be very tight,,,or the starter may have set solid from lack of use, also the battery is by now dead,,,18 months stood doing nothing and not chareds very often wont do it any good at all, try using a car battery to jump start the bike

My Bmw K100 LT has problems keeping the battery charged when its running and after 20 mins it dies ,when i try to start it again it doesnt have enough charge,i thought it was the alternator so i took it...


if the alternator on your k100 is ok, then its the battery not getting charged or its a dud one, if a battery is left sitting about for a long time it's battery plates sulphate, after this happens it wont take a charge ever again so dump it and put a new one on it, i have a k75rtic grate bikes but they do go wrong at times, batterys are not cheep, so keep it fully charged up over the winter with a solar charger or if left for a long time to stand,
ps,, dont run the bike up unless you run it till its fully warmed up, or the choke floods the motor up the next time you try to start it up it only turns off when its warm, and has nothing to do with the leaver on the handel bar's,, this only raises the reves!
