SOURCE: why wont my suzuki bandit 250 start?

If you tried to start the engine for any length of time, the plug would be damp and smell of petrol because fuel was being drawn into the combustion chamber. Without spark to ingnite the mixture, it would cause the plug to become damp. I am assuming you fitted the correct spark plug and that it is gapped correctly.

I don't mean this to sound foolish, but I would suggest you make certain the emergency kill switch has not been accidentally switched off. Also, if you have a sidestand safety interlock that prevents the engine being started while the side stand is down, flip up the sidestand and try again to start it.

Additionally, to make sure the plug wire is securely fitted to the plug. It is possible that the inside of the plug wire cap has gathered moisture and may need to be wiped dry.

If none of the above suggestions solve the problem, remove the plug then reconnect it to the plug wire and hold it near the cylinder - but not near the plug hole in the cylinder head (fuel vapors) - while pressing the starter . You should see an obvious spark. No spark likely means the coil is faulty.

SOURCE: Honda CBR 900rr 95 Will not start

Check fuel pump is working(remove seat and tank)Although your bike has carbs,they are fed by a fuel pump(under seat and tank)
if there is no fuel getting pumped when you are cranking over,replace fuel pump relay(cheapest option)If still no joy your fuel pump is u/s.although hondas have a seperate small vacume type hose running off the back of the pump,any pump off a kawasaki zx7/zx9 will do the job(they are all made by the same firm)

Definatly a good tune up would help, but it also sounds as if you may have a bad stator. I would check the voltage at the battery and see if it goes up and down when accelorating.

SOURCE: I am having starting problem with Honda Activa.

Check to see if you are getting any spark to the plug. You can get the testers for a few buck at Auto Zone (spark plug cable inserts into it and then you push the contact pin into the cable) when you kick start the bike the tester should light up, if it doesn't you may have a bad coil or the wiring to it may be loose/disconnected.

I have an 03 FLSTC, same issue. Went through four starters before 70k miles. Problem solved when I had both the gear reduction and compression releases installed. Have 40k miles on my fifth starter and no problems.

Sounds like the bendix drive or solenoid on the starter is failing. The solenoid energizes the starter coil and also extends the drive into the flywheel.

My 1991 780 Bertone Coupe has not been starting when left on the parking lot in the sun. I've replaced 2 starters this summer but it still keeps happening. My mechanic is stumped. The only comm


If the car is in a secure area, raise the hood to vent air from the engine compartment when you park.

The symptoms sound like Vapor lock or a bad coil. Check fuelpump pressure when it acts up again.

If this vehicle has an ignition Relay, or a Fuelpump Relay, they may be affected by heat. Replace those Relays.

I am thinking the starters failed because of extreme cranking usage. Next time you replace one, get a Lifetime gaurantee.

There can be a strenuous condition for a starter when the engine is overadvanced. GM had a problem with its Crankshaft sensors which kept the Cams overadvanced and it fried the starters when the Owners tried to start their motors. But this was not due to heat and occured on cold motors too.

I hope my solution is helpful. Please rate my solution.

Here is an idea. Check the connections between the battery and the car's ground and the starter. Then find the ground cable which connects the engine to the car and check the connections there as well. Often times odd ball electrical problems are caused by a faulty ground, especially when there is a starter issue. May help, costs nothing but a few moments of your time, and once in a dozen times it is the problem.

It could very well be your starter. I assume your battery is charged and we can mark that off. A starter will usually not go out instantly. It is a process. You can get it to start sometimes by hitting the starter with a hard object. Now, when you try to start the car and it doesn't, does it make a noise or not? If you get nothing, it is probably your starter. If it turns and doesn't start, it is something else.

Try having one person turn the key to the start position and hold it there, while someone else taps on the starter with a hammer. If tapping on it makes it work, you need a starter. Good luck. Hope this helps.

High pitch noise when turn key to start / engine not turning over


Check your battery first. Cold weather does horrible things to car batteries... if it's more of a grinding sound I would say that your starter gear is bad. I believe they call it a ring gear? I had a similar problem with a kushman scooter that I use to deliver snowcones through the neighborhoods. It has teeth that need to engage and if those teeth have been grinded down it will have a hard time engaging....
