First check your battery is fully charged. A starter motor takes a lot of voltage to spin an engine over. Usually around 9 volts on a 12 volt system. Do you get any other noises like clunks, 'machine gun' style clicking? The sound your describing is possibly the starter motor spinning but not 'catching' the flywheel. You'll need to remove the starter motor for this to check why it's not engaging. It could be a worn starter motor or the drive teeth to turn the flywheel could be worn. How old is the bike? Starter motors do wear out, especially if they are used regularly.

Check if power is leaving solenoid to starter while cranking. If starter is getting power to it's power terminal but not turning over,see if you can turn engine over by hand. Check sprage clutch assy into engine also. On my bike there is a flat washer spacer that can away into engine if I am not careful,can jam in gearing.

Remove the spark plug. Generously.spray carb cleaner down the plug hole. Rotate engine over a half a dozen times while plug is still removed. Spray down plug hole again letting it soak in over night

Usual cause is an air leak in the intake side of the manifold.

Motorcycles • Answered on May 09, 2021

Yes, this is acceptable. I prefer to set the front tire at 30 and the rear tire at 36 when riding single. It's a matter of ride quality preference. As long as the tires are inflated enough to prevent excessive flexing of the side walls, you are safe. By lowering the air pressure, you get a bit better traction as your tire's "foot print" is a bit larger but it doesn't handle quite as quickly either.

Good Luck

It's a guess, but a break in the wiring harness between handlebars, switch, and the rest of the bike. It's not carrying all the current needed.

ever look under the seat

sounds like water/moisture has got in the circuit so look at tail light area and work back to fuse and check other main parts for water in the wiring.

It isn't difficult, especially if you can get some one to hold the tank up for you. Sorry I don't have pictures.

1. remove the seat: on a stock seat there is one bolt behind the pillion, slide the pillion seat backwards out of the leather handle and undo the two bolts underneath to release the driver's seat which also slides out backwards.

2. disconnect the battery: always a good idea when working on your bike, not always necessary but generally safer.

3. remove the instruments: the instrument cluster on top of the tank is held on by three allen bolts, the front two are much easier to get to with a multi-tip-screwdriver type tool. Underneath the panel is an electrical connector in a rubber sheath. just peel the rubber back and gently work the connector loose - don't pull on the wires.

2. unbolt the tank: at the back of the tank you'll see one large bolt, undo that and slide the tank back until it is free of the rubber mounts towards the front of the bike.

3. get help: now you could do with someone to hold the tank up while you work underneath it. it is possible to do this by yourself but much, much more annoying.

4. disconnect the electrics: there are two connections to unfasten before lifting the tank. the electrical connector is most likely brown in color and connects two sets of wires, you should be able to depress the clips with your fingers and separate the wires easily. again, don't pull on the wires themselves.

5. disconnect the fuel pump: the pump is part of the tank and is connected to the injection system by a pipe with a clip on the end. this one is a bit fiddly but you should be able to depress the inner section of the clip and work the pipe free of the tank with your fingers. You may find that a little fuel spills out but it won't be very much.
