Question about 2001 Honda Vigor FX 650
Just bought a honda vigor 2002 model, but it seems to have a starting problem, takes ages for it to fire up, today took nearly 10 minutes for it to kick in, is this a common problem with this bike, can you please help
Hi there and thank you for using FixYa!
Yes this is a common problem with bikes having dirty spark plugs and poor fuel quality. What you do is to remove the plugs, clean it well.. or better, replace it with a new one. Then if it still doesnt start, pull the choke knob for a while. start it.. if it still doesnt start. Open the carbs to check if there are any dirt blocking the jets. Blow the holes with compressed air. Assemble and replace it back. Start. if it still doesnt work, check for the cable, make sure it has current firing to the spark plug.
let me know if this helps..
