water and starting problems
Posted February 18, 2009 - 10:31 AM
my bike has become a pig to start from cold lately
fist off the starter motor started paying up.
now today it would not start when cold unless the hot start and choke was used, when running and the hot start leaver is pulled in the reves increase?
more worryingly to water problem i found today.
i change the oil after every ride but when i dropped it today it looked like there may have been water mixed in with the oil in short i removed the fly wheel cover and horrified by the amount of creamy oil i found in there.
now about 3 months ago i changed the pump seals, had no water usage since then.
when i did the job the clutch side of the engine was spotless no signs of water so i just guessed all was ok until i spotted this today i also guess the amount of oil and sludge that was there may also of helped kill my starter.
so questions are would this water have been left in there from 3 or 4 months ago?
if not how did it get in there?
would this also account for my starting problems?
is this just the start of my problems?
