Check the fuses too and basically all the wiring, there could be somewhere a loose connection also check the wires at the solenoid switch.

SOURCE: honda cbr 600 wont start

hi, each lead has the specific number on it. if you do this correctly then they genrally give you an idea to where the sit in the coils( the way they bend :-) ) also i believe the coils are better off been attached to the frame once you are sure leads are in corect order and possitioned correctly in the coils.i just presumed the coils neaded earthing. make sure battery is pleny charged as a bad battery can just hinder. it is also very easy to flood the bike so just check the plugs again. if they are unusually wet then dry them off and try again . otherwise maybe try cleaning all electics.

hope this somehow helped

Start at you battery and work back towards your ignition inspecting each and every harness connector...disconnect, clean with electric contact cleaner, apply a small amount of dielectric grease and reconnect, even the connectors under the seat. Take your time and it will be worth the effort. Check all the grounds too.

1987 kawasaki ninja zx10 wont stay running when warmed up it

you didnt mention anything to do with the carbs so try some "Sea foam".... purchase at Autozone ($10) pour 1/3 can to two gallons fuel and drive it around for a good 10 to 15 miles and get on it once in awhile, ride safe..if the carbs are dirty or clogged... they wont be after your ride..there might be a little hesitation your first couple of miles till it starts to took my bike 10 miles before it cleared out..bump start your bike if you have to to get it going and keep it going till it clears up.

Hi, i bought HERO HONDA KARIZMA before 3months and it went through its first servicng only,and it`s pickup has reduced so much and it is giving mileage about 27-29.Thats it. I am very disappointed bec

Ask your friend do an actual milage check, not just an inexact " I get about 40mpg " as he says. What is he really getting? Driving at top speeds is better for an engine than city driving. Have the dealer do a compression check. The valves may need to be adjusted, (minor thing). If riding highway, get a larger front sprocket, i.e.13 tooth sprocket changed to a 14 tooth sprocket. This will help mpg. Driving fast is not good for mpg.

As far as owner maintenance, the best thing you can do for yourself is to ride over to the dealer to pick up a can of chain lube and ask them to give you some instructions in owner maintenance for your bike. They will be happy to show you what you can do and HOW to do it. This includes adjusting the chain. Don't be bashful. Ask questions; "How often is that needed? What do I look for? What tells me I need to bring it in? Can I get those parts here?" Build a relationship with your dealer. You will both benefit more that way than if I just tell you how to do the adjustments.

Shall i purchase a second hand karizma

Hi ....... Any vehicle is capable of high milages if well looked after. Main thing to look at is any service history, regular oil changes (very important) and general condition of service parts and fasteners which hold them on. At this milage I'd expect the cam chain to have been changed, along with ALL guides and followers. Make sure bike is cold when you arrive, start it (how easy and no smoke ?) and whilst it warms up have a good look around the bike at consumables (chain & sprockets, tyres, exhaust etc) ...... these are all the things that mount up the cost to replace. If the climate is strong sunlight then paintwork will fade and that alone will not give an indication of the general condition of the machine. Good Luck, let us know how you proceed.

2006 Aprilia RS125 doesnt start

Hi .... Try switching the petrol off just prior to stopping the engine and start up again with the petrol OFF. There's enough petrol in the carb to start the bike. A good battery should show over 12 volts. Take the plugs out and give them a good clean or replace them. Is there a petrul pump fitted ? A two stroke needs to be ridden quite hard to maintain efficeincy, higher revs etc ........ let us know how you get on ?
