Got a Little Problem

6 posts in this topic

Let my baby sit a little long.... Went out to crank it up the other day, fired right up, let it run about 2 minutes, pushed in the cold start, put it in gear and the bike went dead.... have not been able to get it to start up since, will fire for about a second after about 10 kicks and goes dead again. I even get some loud backfires occasionally when kicking it.. What do you guys think fouled plug maybe? I have kicked the bike to death for a day and half with no luck any input would be greatly appreciated....

Certainly try all that first, however, sounds similar to the way mine did when an exhaust valve hung (and of course subsequently bent). Was running great, stopped it, couldn't ever start it again. Only a top-end teardown revealed the true problem.
