quick question

i have a 03 RR, i put velocity stacks in, in july, i totaled the bike, and just got done restoring it. theres nothing mechanicaly wrong with the bike. except i have a weak battery. but anyway, the other day when my battery wouldnt start the bike, i tried push starting it (down hill). it jumped but wouldnt start. so, i tried it again, but it did the same. my question is, do the velocity stacks cause this? before i put them in, (had the same weak battery) i could push start it on a level serface. let me know
thanks josh

how long did the gas stay in the tank for?
I'm thinking you got oil somewhere in the engine keepomg it from starting.

After my get off my bike wouldn't start. Had to keep trying, once it did start it burn a crap load of oil. After burning the oil never had a problem.

Charge the battery and keep try, she fire up.

V stacks has nothing to do with a weak battery

Push starting a fuel injected bike is harder. The computer needs 12v to tell the injectors when to fire. If u don't have that then they don't work.
