Bike doesnt seem to want to start. I just had the battery replaced and bought a 100 dollar battery that comes with a two year warranty. Everything was fine..rode it around for a bit....and then later that day I went to start it and it wouldnt turn over.

The start engine comes on alright, but it just wont turn..just makes this cranking/winding noise. I thought maybe it was flooded, and followed the directions in the manual for a flooded engine (throttle back 5 second hold) but it still wont turn over. Has a full tank of gas now. Any ideas?

ps in light of the aforementioned im obviously a newby

"Turn over" means the starter is turning the engine. "Fire up" is when the engine starts running.

So, I don't know which one is going on. A battery would keep it from turning over. Being flooded would keep it from firing up. You have described both so I don't know what is really going on. Your problem is prolly simple but... we just need to know specifics

sorry i guess im using the wrong lingo here. so initially the problem was that the bike literally wouldnt turn on- battery was dead..i heard a click click click noise when i pressed the start button. That was solved by taking it to a shop and putting in a new battery- he said everything else was fine.

now the issue seems to be that when i press the start button, the start engine seems to get going (like a winding noise that makes before it would fire up..but it jsut doesnt fire up..it just keeps making a winding noise until the battery gives out)

theres a good chance i flooded the engine because i dont really know what im doing with it and im still training on it- but i followed the instructions in the book (pull the throttle back and hold the start button for 5 seconds)..it almost worked but didnt fire up...and im afraid to keep trying because i dont want to kill another battery.

Sounds flooded to me. Don't try till the battery dies... try for a little while then charge the battery. Running a battery till its dead will damage it.

If you have good friends... try to push start it. That starter will only turn the engine like 200 RPMs at most. If you have 2 friends... pit it in second gear with the clutch in and have them push you. Once up to a decent speed, sit on the back seat and let out the clutch. If your friends are strong enough... they can get the motor to spin faster which will blow out the excess fuel easier and she might fire up...

Otherwise, pulling out the plugs and letting it sit for a day or so will evaporate the fuel out.
