Problem Starting 91
I just signed up, posted in the 'new members' and now here I am.
I bought a 91 CBR600 as a project bike, had it running like a dream as of Sunday afternoon. Then it stalled out and will no longer start.
All the info I can think of...
The sparkplugs are good, I just pulled them and checked that there is spark
The kill switch is a non issue because I pulled and by-passed it
The air filter was oiled Sunday morn but removed it acts the same
When I connected the front faring (turn signals, head light) I blew the fuse, troubleshot this and believe I found the root cause, however this is also (in my belief) the cause of the bike no longer starting.
Battery is new and fully charged when attempting to start (13.5+)
All fuses check good
Gas is getting to the carbs and the plugs are coming out wet
When I took the plugs out and cleaned them the same thing is happening
When I turn the key on all meter lights come on
When I hit the start switch everything turns over but nothing fires
Any hints at all please, I am a novice so plainspeak is always better
I will follow through after work tommorrow.
