    Should have 90psi or more compression to start.

    Pull muffler to check for scaring on piston.

I suggest you open the fuel tank and "fish" up the fuel line hose with the filter attached. Simply blow out the filter. That should allow your engine to get necessary fuel to carbuetor. This is 90% of today's no start problems.

Bike have spark and feul but dont want start

You already tried towing it to start it up? Did it break down near the house or did you have to have it towed home when it didn't work? You might have to have it towed to a car service.

Engine wont start

First check for spark at any of the sparkplugs if you have no spark check ignition coil .If you have spark check the fuel pressure it should be 60-66 psi with key on engine off.If its below 52 psi then replace the fuel pump and filter.

Will not start has 60 psi compression plug firing has gas model 50 new coil good spark plug

When I have a problem starting a saw this is what I do.
  • Remove the spark plug and pour 5 ml (one teaspoonful) of fuel into the opening
  • Dip the end of the sparkplug in fuel so the spark gap is wet
  • Replace the sparkplug and try to start the saw
The fuel that you poured in should ignite and may be enough to cause the saw to start. You may need to repeat the operation 2 or 3 times. Do not be tempted to put in too much feul as it will only flood the saw.

If the saw was left away with fuel in the carburettor for a few months the fuel may have formed a gel in the jets of the carburettor. If the above method doesn't solve the problem you'll need to have a mechanic strip down the carburettor and clean the jets.

Check for vaccum line that controls fuel shutoff. remove sparkplug add a few drops of fuel in hole,reinstall sparkplug and try to start if it runs all is well.if not even for a few seconds you have another issue.

2005 crf 70 wont plug and wire.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initial checks:
  • check for spark on the sparkplug when starting;
  • check that fuel is reaching the combustion chamber (sparkplug would be wet);
  • check for engine compression.

Postback results.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

sounds like youve really done your home work all that comes to mind now is try a cam posistion sensor this would keep your car from starting as well if that is good you can aslo try a crank sensor. you will get all of the readings that you are getting and these sensors can still be bad.

My motor wont start..!

  1. The carb has 2 choke knobs,red and black one,black for cold start and red for hot start,I found on my 426 that by pulling the black one every time I try to start the bike,the bike starts hot or cold.When it started press the choke knob back.
  2. A dirty air filter will also make the bike difficult to start.
  3. Do not open the throttle even a bit whilst kicking it,the carb tends to flood very easily and then you are going to kick the bike for ever and ever.
  4. The exhaust turning red hot I'd suggest you get the carburator's jetting checked out,it can be because your feul/air mixture is not right and this could also be a factor in your starting problem,but another reason can also be when the bikes stands still whilst idling or even being revd whilst not in motion the engine tends to get very hot very quickly,the bike does not have a electric fan blowing threw the radiator,and if you did not know your exaust system removes between 60-70% of your engines heat,so it will turn red hot if your are not riding so the cold wind can blow over the exhaust and threw the radiator.
  5. You say you get good spark,where did you test it?Did you check the spark plug itself,or only the sparkplug lead,I find the 426 to be very hard on spark plugs,when I find my 426 difficult to start the first thing I change is the spark plug and it solved my problem many times.
  6. You also mentioned you have feul "to" carb but do you have feul - carb to engine.
  7. How does the compresion feel when kicking the kickstarter,any lack in compresion could indicate a sticky valve in the open position,the unexperianced rider will not kickstart this bike due to the amense compression these bikes have (Ratio 12.1).
Just a few suggestions I hope one works for you.
