Hi, Anonymous there is no such thing as a "WEAK SPARK" even though dozens of riders will swear that's what they have and are dying to show you, the bottom line is either you have spark or don't have spark there is nothing in between.
You won't see a dirtbike spark really well, and people only look at it when they have a problem. It is designed to fire under extreme pressure (13:1 compression) and is very robust, but it is not a 1mm bright blue line jumping across a spark plug. It can be white and very hard to see. If you are confident you have weak or no spark prove it by holding the plug in your hand and stark kicking you will be in for a "SHOCKING" surprise!!!!!
60% of these bikes have a flooding issue and/or a fouled plug. 30% need valves adjusted and most of the remaining 10% is something simple in the electrics like a broken kill switch, bad earth on the battery or dead battery, wiring at the steering head damaged or blown fuse.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. 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.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Dirty air filter.
10. Intake air leak.
11. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system.
12. Carburetor contaminated, sticky float, plugged jets.
13. Carburetor vacuum diaphragm torn, cracked, not seated or installed improperly.
14. Multiple carburetors out of sync.
15. Fuel filter clogged.
16. Old or contaminated fuel.
17. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carb vent line closed off.
18. Gas cap diaphragm valve faulty.
19. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
20. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
21. Incorrect valve timing.
22. Valve springs floating, weak, or broken.
23. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.
24. Incompatible performance parts.
25. Control module may be in "LIMP" mode
26. Check for engine trouble codes.

Hi, John it should be noted that the reasons your FI light stays on constantly or flashes and your bike will or will not start and may turn over or not, these conditions will vary from bike to bike depending on the year, make, and model and you should always refer to your owners/service manual for proper diagnostic procedures. It should also be noted that any type of prior work done to the bike or an abnormal event occurrence IE: adding accessories, electrical curiosity/adventures, laying the bike down/crashes, rain storms/bike washings just before FI light issues started can be significant hints/aids into tracking down the gremlin. The newer the bike the more sensitive the ECM becomes and will not let the bike start when aftermarket accessories have been installed without being reprogrammed. That being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty Fuel Pump, fuse or system relay switch.
2. Battery starting to fail due to old age/damage, perform a load test.
3. A discharged battery, 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. Faulty safety switches/sensors: run/off, ignition, clutch lever, neutral, side stand, tip over, fuel, and or their connections.
5. Broken wire or worn insulation exposing wire to a ground situation especially inside wire harness at tight bends around fairing brackets, under dash panels, under fuel tanks over cylinder heads etc. Many harnesses are open on the ends that will allow water to enter and accumulate at v-bends.
Dielectric grease and contact cleaner are your best friends for wire/cable/harness connectors, look for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.
6. Installation of aftermarket accessories ie. exhaust systems, mufflers, air cleaners, fuel tuners, electrical component etc.

Hi, Anonymous you need "FIVE" things in order for a cylinder to run properly:
1. FUEL: in order to validate your not getting fuel spray some starting fluid into the air cleaner and hit the starter button, if it fires up and runs for a few seconds then you know you have a fuel delivery issue. Multi carb banks should be bench "SYNC"
2. SPARK: remove the spark plug and with it connected to the spark plug cable ground the threads to something metal you should see a bluish white spark if not you have a faulty spark plug, spark plug cable, ignition coil, condenser, CKP, ECM, sensor or the wiring in between.
3. COMPRESSION: you must have at least 80-100 PSI for most bikes, multi-cylinder engines should be within 10-15% of each other if not perform a leak down test you may have a burnt or bent valve or hole in the piston or broken rings.
4. CAM TIMING: confirm your timing marks are aligned to see if the cam chain or adjuster are worn out and the chain has skipped a couple teeth.
5. IGNITION TIMING: on older bikes check to see if your points have not closed up, timing plate has not become loose and confirm with a timing light for proper retard and advance functions, on newer bikes where timing is controlled by an ECM and is nonadjustable check you CKP, TPS, MAP, O2, sensor or its counterpart for integrity.

1) Call a dealer and ask them.
or
If you cannot do that,
2) According to where you live in the world, decide the coldest temperature you ever have .
If it is about 30 degrees Fahrenheit or more, likely a 10W - 30 will serve you well.
However, if you have temperatures much colder than that, I should recommend a 5W - 30 or a 5W - 20 oil.
God bless your efforts.

It's not every day that we are in a mood of listing motorcycles based on the pathetic design carried on them but it was only for one of the recently launched bikes that reminded us that no matter what sometimes manufacturers do miscalculate some equations. We thought the era of ugly designs is over but that's not entirely right. Some might say that looks are subjective, but we are pretty damn sure it's not in the case of the ones we have listed. Below I have narrowed down some of the Indian bikes that might be head turners but not in a very good way of course.
Hero Karizma ZMR:
The original Hero Honda Karizma (1999-2008) was one of the best looking bikes of its age but then folks at Hero decided to mess it up big time. Originally, it was the Karizma that changed the way motorcycles looked 15 years back. Motorcycles at that time were skinny, ***** and odd looking creatures but Karizma stepped in and wooed every motorcycle enthusiast in India.
Bajaj BYK:
The Pune based automaker, Bajaj is known to make smart products be it talking about the classic Pulsar series or the new modern products like the Dominar. But like every other brand, even Bajaj has made some stupendous looking bikes in the past, not talking about all of them but one. The Bajaj BYK is an old bike, launched in early 2000's and then soon discontinued.
Suzuki Intruder 150:
Out of all other bikes in the list, Intruder 150 is the only bike that's currently on sale in India. In fact for those who don't know it was launched only a few days back. The styling of the bike has been majorly inspired by the 'big-bad-original' Intruder bikes but the way it has been carried on to match the appeal of a 150cc bike has been quite a disaster.
Yamaha Fazer 125:
Maybe if we had to pick the ugliest bike on this list and if it was not the Karizma ZMR, then it would definitely be this bike. The way we look at it, the designing team of this bike must have been drunk all the time. We mean how can they give a bee head to a mass production bike? Seriously?
Suzuki Fiero:
The Fiero like other bikes in the list is one of the old school motorcycles that existed for a small period of time. The problem with its design was that it looked like an abandoned kid of the Kinetic scooter. Its headlight was weirdly wide that would've looked better on a scooter instead of a bike.
