Inspect the area inside/under the filter to access the shut-off switch and it's wiring. It may be broken at that point or disconnected. If that is ok, then follow the wire thru the body and check for any breaks in the wire. Remove the recoil assembly, and you will see the wire routed around the flywheel to the coil. The coil will have a ground wire and the wire going to the switch. any of these points can have a wire broken to cause your senerio.

Model 026. when trying to cold start, why does the compression button pop out without starting?


Its ment to.!!! that's the job of a decompression button.

Procedure:
1.push on off switch into full choke position, depress the decompression button.
2.pull the saw over until it 'fires' once.
3. the decompression button would have popped back up, click the on/off switch up to half choke.
4.pull saw over and it should fire up, revving.! blip the throttle to return it to tick over.

HOW TO PULL CODE ON 2012 HARLE


1- Turn motorcycle ignition switch to OFF & Run/Stop switch to RUN.
Push odometer reset button in & hold.
Turn ignition switch to Ignition and release odometer reset button. Background lighting will illuminate, speedometer needle should sweep its full range and indicator lamps (battery, security, low fuel, check engine and cruise) should illuminate. The word "diag" should then appear.
Push the odometer reset button once and you will see the selection menu "PSSPt" with the first P flashing.
Turn motorcycle ignition switch to OFF & Run/Stop switch to RUN.
2- Push odometer reset button in & hold.
3- Turn ignition switch to Ignition and release odometer reset button. Background lighting will illuminate, speedometer needle should sweep its full range and indicator lamps (battery, security, low fuel, check engine and cruise) should illuminate. The word "diag" should then appear.
4 - Push the odometer reset button once and you will see the selection menu "PSSPt" with the first P flashing.
5 - Each letter represents an area of the diagnostics module. The module that is flashing is the one you are going to check. To move from one letter (module) to the next, you push the odometer reset button one time. (from P to S to SP to t and back to P, etc.)
P = ECM/ICM (Electronic Control Module [EFI] / Ignition Control Module [Carburetor])
S = TSM/TSSM (Turn Signal/ Turn Signal Security Module)
SP = speedometer
T = tachometer
6 - To get the DTC in an area of diagnostics, push and hold the odometer reset button in for 5 seconds and release. If there are any DTC's the code will be displayed or the word "none" will appear if there are no DTC's. Push the odometer reset button again to view additional codes if they exist.
7 - Record the codes.
8 - If DTC's are not to be cleared, Press and release the odometer reset button. Part number of module will be displayed. NOTE: To determine if a code is current or historic, clear the displayed code by pushing in and holding the odometer reset button ( longer than 5 seconds) until 'clear' comes up. Release the odometer reset button. Turn OFF the ignition switch. Run your bike and shut it down then recheck the DTC's again by repeating steps 1 to 9. If the code is current it will reappear.
9 - Press and release the odometer reset button to continue to the next module.
10 - Turn Ignition switch to OFF.
On models not equipped with a tachometer "No Rsp" will appear when the tachometer identifier is selected.
"No Rsp" will also appear if the run/off switch is in the off position when doing this procedure.

The actual error codes will appear (format) as "P0374", for example.

How to start my LS 650


Pull the choke knob all the way out, put the shifter is in neutral, turn the ignition switch to on, make sure the fuel petcock is in the on position, engage the clutch and press the red start button. If it doesn't start in the first 10 seconds let it rest for another 10 seconds before trying again, otherwise you risk running down the battery and/or burning out the starter motor. Pulling in the clutch engages the auto-decompress to make it easier to start the engine. Once it starts let it run for about 30 seconds and slowly ease in the choke to the middle position. If it starts to stumble pull the choke back out for a while longer. Once the engine cylinder jug is warm but not uncomfortably hot you can push the choke knob all the way in.

The only button i can think of is the decompression valve, but i did not think it possible to hit this while operating the saw, this button is a starting aid, you push it in to satrt the saw, when the saw sarts it will come out automatically, if you push it in with the saw running it will stop.

This sounds like the throttle spindle sticking, or the cable sticking, if you remove the top cover and air filter, then push the throttle spindlefully back to the stop screw with your finger, then try again, the spindle may be a little gummed up.

Check your battery connections make sure they are clean and tight.
Check your battery depending on how long you have had it, it may be time to replace it.

Same problem here ... 2008 C90T ... dealer no help ... in 3rd or 4th, ignition off, force it to roll backwards until you hear the piston shift ... should start then. Told it's the rear piston stopping at or near top dead center, but also told adjust the decompression will "solve" the issue; anyway, a rolling forward-start in 4th will work, too, otherwise try rolling the bike backwards until you hear, and you will know when the piston moves and then it will start.
