SOURCE: yz 250 wont kick start

Hi andersondts.

To get you right there i believe it should read as 'jump' start and not 'bump' start ...:-)
Well the problem could be with the battery, is it a maintenance free (dry) or is it a wet 0ne (uses sulphuric acid specific gravity 1250).
( 1) How old is the battery?
( 2) If its a wet one ,check the specific gravity of the acid in it, if its low thn charge it.You may hve to add or top up to its required level , if so thn use distilled water only !
( 3) If the battery is more thn 17months old ...replace it.
( 4) Its not bad to get the charging rate of your bike to make sure that it is working properly as required.

I hope this will help.

SOURCE: r1 no neutral light wont start on button bump

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Try with the clutcj lever pulled. Check / trace the sky blue wire to the neutral switch.  Whne transmission is in neutral this wire must have continuity to ground.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: triumph sprint rs 955i,all correct lights come on

try charging up the battery, the starter needs around 60 amps to turn over compared to the lights that only need around 5 amps, maybe it just doesnt have enough power to turn it over... hope this helps

does the headlight come on with the ignition key?, if not there is a possibility that the battery is flat, or no good.

SOURCE: starting problem with honda crf250r 09 model when cod or hot

I have a honda crf250 2009 model i recently brought it off a mate. Had the same problem could not get the thing started. Missed races cause of this... I worked out how to get it started. On Cold start, turn the fuel on give the throttle 3 full pumps. Then do not touch it! Put ur hand in the middle of the handlebars if need be. Kick start the bike still may take a couple kicks but on mine its generally about 2-4 kicks. Then through out the day when u want to start it do no twist that throttle it just squirts fuel in and u may as well just pack it up!! I know this is what i have to do not saying yours will be the same but i hope it all works out!!!

Peugeot 307 wont start

By bump start do you mean you can have it pushed or push it, jump in and depress the clutch and get it started using the momentum of the vehicle to turn the crank? I usually call that a jump start but I think I have heard it called bump start (from having it bumped/pushed by another vehicle I think). Anyway if that is the case you need a new starter. If not post back and I will do what I can to help.

I have checked the solenoid and the starter and both seem to be working fine yet still wont turn over when start button is pushed

Check Voltage to/from solenoid, to/from battery, 12-12.5 volts DC when not running. 12.5-13.5 when idling at 2000-2500rpm, had similar issue and tried cleaning the contacts on the starter, contacts on the push-button also. Only to find it was the solenoid. To test starter solenoid, by-passing the starter button & solenoid, Turn the key on. Now use a screwdriver to make contact between both poles on the solenoid, there may be sparks, but only maintain contact for 1 or 3 seconds this will by-pass the solenoid and start button. I've heard it called "bumping" the starter. If it this cranks the starter or even starts (mine does) replace the solenoid ($8 on Ebay) ($12 at Advanced Auto Parts). If not its probably going to be your starter, stator or starter brushes etc
