93 NSR250 - Start without battery?

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by V4bloke, Jul 31, 2007.

  1. Hi,

    maybe a silly question, but can the above model bike be started without a battery? I know some 2 strokes can be started minus the electricals, but for some its an intergral part of the starting system i.e. RZ500.

    Picking one up for my brother and it has a dead battery. Wanted to know if I can get it running before we get a chance to get a new one (may be a couple of weeks) I know nothing about 2 strokes

    Thanks :)
  2. No it won't run.
  3. the battery is required to open the powervalves, and exhaust valves. no powervalve = no fuel :)
  4. it will run....but not the greatest
  5. thanks guys :)
