Hey Chad,

The first thing I would do is a compression test. You say you have spark, but have you actually tested the strength of the spark ? A simple check to see if the spark is strong enough is to take the spark plug, hook it up to the spark plug wire, hand hold the shell portion of the plug roughly a 1\2 inch away from the cylinder head, and crank the engine over. If the spark jumps this gap, you have good spark. If it doesn't jump this gap, your ignition coil or stator coils maybe weak and not producing enough voltage for a good spark.

No fuel or no spark. Quick test: spray some starter fluid into air intake and try to start it. If it runs and then dies, you've got spark but no fuel. If the bike quit with no prior symptoms, check spark plug wire not knocked loose, fuel filter clogged. (You do have gas, right?)

Quad bike will not start


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  • Make sure the key and kill switch are both in the "on" position. Ensure that the proper starting procedures for your bike are followed. Is it in neutral? Clutch pulled in? Gas in the tank? Then try to start your bike. Does it turn over? If not, check to see that the battery is properly connected and the terminals are not corroded. If they're loose or dirty, clean and tighten them. Then, using a voltmeter that measures ac/dc and ohms, check to see that your battery has enough charge to crank the engine. If not, replace or charge your battery and try again. If it still doesn't turn over, there may be a loose connection between your battery and starter; a bad ignition or starter switchl or a bad safety relay. Check a repair manual for proper testing procedures for your bike, as each motorcycle differs.
  • 2 If your bike turns over but doesn't catch, check to see that it's getting fuel. If the bike has a fuel petcock, make sure it is in the "on" (or, on certain bikes, "prime") position. Then remove the main fuel hose and check to see that fuel is flowing freely. If fuel isn't getting to the carburetor or injection system, your bike won't run. If that's the case, your problem is likely something in the fuel system. If fuel is flowing freely, reattach the lines. If it's not, check to see if the fuel filter is clogged, if a line is pinched or if the petcock is working properly. One way to determine if the problem is in your fuel system is to put a few drops of fresh gas into each spark-plug hole, replace the plugs and turn the bike over. If it starts and then quits, the problem is likely in the fuel system.
  • 3 If you're getting fuel and the bike turns over but still doesn't catch or start, check the spark plug or plugs. Start by pulling off a spark plug wire, then removing a plug using the spark plug socket supplied in your bike's toolkit. Now inspect the plug. It should not be wet (usually caused by fuel, when the plug is not firing) or coated in carbon/burned oil deposits. Now check to see if the bike is getting spark. Although you can get a special, insulated set of pliers to hold the plug, there's a "quick and dirty" method for this: After reattaching the plug wire, lay the threaded part of the plug against the engine (not over the plug hole, as the spark could ignite any fuel that is blown out when you try to start it). Now, making sure you're not in contact with the engine or plug, hit the starter. You should see a nice blue spark. If you don't, make sure the threaded portion of the plug is touching the engine (but the electrode is not) and try again. If you still don't see a spark, you either have a bad plug or a problem with the electrical system. Check to see that all the ignition wires are properly connected and that you can't see any cracks in the wires. If the wires are cracked, they should be replaced. If you're still not getting spark, it's time to consult a repair manual or call a mechanic.
  • 4 If you've got fuel and spark, ascertain that your bike is getting enough air. Start by pulling off the air filter. If it's too dirty, you won't get the proper mixture of air and fuel in the carburetor or injection system. If it's clean, check to see that the air box is properly connected-- a loose hose or air leak can feed too much air into the system. If your bike is equipped with a choke, ensure that it's able to move freely and is not stuck in the "on" or "off" position.
  • 5 If you've followed these steps and still can't get your bike to run, call in an expert. If you think you've narrowed down the source of the problem, describe the steps you've taken to point the mechanic in the right direction.

I have a yamaha generator and it will not start/electric start or pull also will not start


If it was left unused for a few months with fuel in it the fuel forms a gel in the carburettor and may have blocked jets. Try the solution below:
First to check that the plug is sparking;
  • Remove the spark-plug
  • Push it into the HT lead, the lead that normally is pressed onto the top of the plug, and rest it with the metal part of the plug against the metal of the generator
  • Pull the start cord and see if the plug sparks.
If it does the problem is with the fuel. If it doesn't try replacing the plug.

  • Assuming that the plug sparks alright pour about 5ml, 1 teaspoon, of fuel into the opening where you took the spark-plug out of.
  • Dip the end of the spark-plug in fuel so the spark gap is wet and replace the plug in the generator.
  • Try starting the generator
The fuel you poured into the spark-plug opening should burn causing the generator to start. The procedure may have to be repeated 2 to 3 times.

If there was fuel left for a few months in the generator and it has formed gel in the carburettor this procedure may not work. If this happens the only solution is to have the carburettor stripped down and the jets cleaned by a mechanic.

Will not start.On occasion it will but never stays running.replaced primer ball and spark plugs.Since it does fire occasionaly can I eliminate not getting spark?


Hi, sounds like an outboard motor that you're talking about. You can check to see if the fuel filter is clogged or just change it all together. Also the carburetor may need to be cleaned out if it was not properly winterized or stored. Hope this helps.

Motor was running great, but it died slowly and never start again


check to see if you have a spark -then check if you are still getting fuel-and how old is the fuel-because it is recommended ,an im assuming its a 2 stroke motor,that the fuel should be replace with a fresh 2 stroke mixture every couple of months as the mixture jellyfies and sludges up the carb etc-try those first

My 50cc mini bike starts then dies 5 secs after starting. why?


It sounds like you may have 2 problems

  • Bad gas
  • dpossible loose spark plug( bad compression)


Solution

dump out the gas put new in
Remove the spar plug and examine the plug if it is wet and black it is fouled
if it is white ad dry it is not getting gas

If you can replace the spark plug if not just clean it with a wire brush put back in and tighten

Finally make sure the spark plug wire is not lose

Best of luck to you
