Hey guys. So I've been having trouble getting my bike to start. Here's the deal.

I changed the oil early last week, and have had no problems. Bike ran great. Then last Thursday I went to move the bike because I was moving back home for the summer and it started fine. Then I went to go for a ride on Friday and the bike wouldn't start. I automatically assumed it was the battery because of all the lights and stuff I've got on the bike and I've had battery problems before. So I had the battery hooked up to a trickle charger and when it was all said and done, it still wouldn't start. Also tried to jump the bike with no luck.

Here's a video of what's happening I just took.


Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

J

Full throttle and start it. You had leak down from the injectors and it's flooded. T

So just hold the throttle all the way and start it?

actually, it did start and as soon as I let off the throttle it shut off. Won't start again. Going to wait a bit and try again; this time keeping the throttle on.

Thanks T.

I thought it may have been the spark plugs?

How long did you hold while starting? You may be hitting the starter for 5 seconds straight to get it to start.. Smell your exhaust, does it smell like gas?

sounds like it's flooded. hold the throttle wide open, and crank it for probably 20+ seconds. let sit for a few minutes and repeat.

been trying this - still nothing.

Next time, don't start it up and then shut it down right away, as when you moved your bike. As you discovered, this leaves the plugs wet and makes it hard to start next time. Once you start it up it really needs to be fully warmed up (or better, ridden) before shutting it off again.

OP:
On top of that, it just causes a lot more wear on the engine...
