Bad alternator, no voltage in system, or check your air filter, I had a similar problem on an old RD350 which had a filter under the seat. It would shift around and once I sat on the seat it was cutting off the air flow to the motor.

That's why it would start when I pushed it but not while I sat on it!
Needed a little spacer to keep it away from the seat. I bought it like that just after it was all rebuilt with racing parts, got it dirt cheap, $10 part that they forgot to put back on the bike when it was done.

Old owner never even drove it 1 mile after he had all the work done to it. He couldn't figure out what was wrong and sold it as is, he was just ill after I drove back and showed him how it ran, you could hear it 2 miles away!

SOURCE: yzf 250 wont run without the choke

Hi mikelapt
You will have a carby problem. When the choke is one, and different fuel circuit is used. When you turn off the choke, you go back to the idle circuit of the carb is used, when under throttle, main jets kick in. You probably have a blockage in one of these circuits. Strip the carb down, clean with carby cleaner, blow out all air circuits and jets with compressed air, then setup the idle mixture and tick over speed. Always work with fresh fuel, and drain off, discard any fuel older than a couple of months. It goes off, and turns to a gel  like substance that blocks up your carby. Hope this has explained your problem. Happy to talk to you more about it. A FixYa vote is a great reward for for my time taken to explain this to you. Cheers
regards robotek

SOURCE: 2002 400XR hard to start and will only run well with choke on

hello
it sounds like a jet has become plugged. the popping is generally associated with a lean condition. in your case it seems the pilot jet is plugged. this is very common because the pilot jet is a very small orifice and is apt to plug and cause bad low throttle or idle conditions. removeing the float bowl and takeing out the pilot jet and cleaning it or replaceing it should solve your problem. this also will help with the cold starting conditions. thank you.

SOURCE: Bike cuts out and dies when slowing to a stop.

Drain the carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowls. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install new stock spark plugs and start the engine. If the bike still doesn't run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetors from the engine.

For each carb, remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray all the little airways and fittings in the carb. If your carb has them, remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.

Be sure to put these two screws back in the same location they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carbs. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.


Please rate this solution as " FixYa " if all goes well. Thanks

SOURCE: the bike wont run unless you charge the battery first

Double check your battery. It could be bad and not holding a charge... If it's good then you can move to the generator. An easy way to check the generator is to get a voltage meter and put one lead on the pos and the other lead on the neg (while the bike is running), the voltage meter should read approx 14volts. If not, then you know the generator isn't putting out enough power to charge the battery. Then check all wiring back to the stator. Hope the stator isn't bad because I remember it being pretty expensive. Good luck...

No wait this means that the mixture is too lean in gas. When you activate the choke it 'chokes' the engine of air. This is why on a really cold day the choke must be used to start the bike or to pull fuel through on a morning. So what ever you do don't make your mixture leaner in fuel.

Have you tried pushing the lever like you are lowering the bucket while starting it? Sometimes the pumps on these can drag the engine back while starting, especially if cold. It's best to shut them down with the bucket in the air some. Let me know how it goes.

The system for sr5019 uk is very slow, and doesn't always runs smoothly, also, my clock keeps switching itself off when I logoff.


You need to replace the cmos battery. It is the little nickel sized silver disc on your motherboard. It will have the number 2032 etched on it. That is the size of the new battery you need to replace it with. Once you do that you need to optimise your bios settings or have someone do it for you.

I bought a new battery, the bike road fine for a while the in the middle of my ride it started slowing down to a complete stop. I couldn't start it again, waited for 20mins, started it and it ran...


One explanation for this would be that your charging system is faulty. It is possible that the OLD battery was ok, but was not getting charged by the faulty charge system. You put in a new battery, that is part charged before sale and ran the battery flat because it wasn't charging. If you leave a discharged lead acid bettery for 20 minutes or so, it will pick up a little again and possibly let the bike start and run, but by the time you got home you had killed the battery completely.

All the facts fit, though I'm not promising that it is the problem.

Take the battery off and charge it with a charger. Now, put it back on the bike and run the bike (It should start) While the battery is on the bike, get a volt meter on it. It should read slightly over voltage (doesn't matter if its a 12 or 6 volt system, it will read a little over when the bike is running) when you turn the engine off, you should see the volt meter drop down to the stated battery voltage. If you get no hike with the engine running and drop as you power off, its a good sign the charging system is faulty. A similar test, start the bike, meter the battery and turn on the indicators, stop light and head light to pull as much power as you can, the battery voltage shouldn't dip, because the charge system should compensate. If it does dip, consider this a confirmation that the charging system is faulty.

My 85 maxim will start if u push it and continue to start the rest of the day but once it cools down you will have to push it again any ideas


Sounds like you battery isn't holding charge overnight. If it was the alternator, it wouldn't start during the day so the alternator sounds fine.

Make sure the battery that is on it is the right one for the bike.

Try taking the battery off the bike and using a battery charger to charge it overnight. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid it's going to need a new battery.

Good Luck

1991 firebird turns over slow,but always starts.


If the battery is in good condition, good connections and passes a load test, the starter may be bad. But be sure the connections and the grounds are good.
