4 posts in this topic

My bike has been in garage for about 2 months. I can not get it started ? any clues on starting bike in cold weather. I guess I will remove tank and clean spark plug.

I have a 98 400 and I was able to track the problem to my pick up coil on the stator. Unfortunately, nobody sells this part alone - they want you to buy the entire stator (+250 i think) - Anyway - look in the manual, it tells you what the resistance of the stator and pu coil should be - I bought a PU coil from someone on ebay that was willing to part out their stator. I have an extra coil if you need - but they rarely go bad. Get out your ohmmeter and manual and you should be able to find the problem

If you bike ran fine two months ago and not now, it is most likely due to a plugged pilot jet or sticking float, Clean the carb. Might be a good idea to check for spark and the valve clearances while the tank is off.
