Greetings y'all, I've got a 2002 Bonneville that I'd like to get going! Only trouble is, I keep flattening the battery with the attempt. Here's the breakdown: - Bike was shipped via truck from QLD to VIC, so lots of bumps. - It's not fuel injected, so I imagine the carburettor doesn't like all the bumps and such... guessing there's something i can do here to help - Last starting attempt before battery ran out of juice, it did "pop" twice as if the cylinders very briefly fired, so it may start - Apparently everything has been serviced on this bike, spark plugs included (although I've yet to check them) So I've a few questions if you're willing to help!! 1. Is it typical to have bike-starting problems after a shipping a bike? Any suggestions with respect to priming the system? 2. I have a proper motorcycle battery charger. Now there's a gap in my knowledge here, so forgive a potentially stupid question. Can I connect the battery charging unit to the wall, then the charging unit to the battery (as normal), then the battery to the bike, kinda like "jump starting via the charging unit"? I'm guessing this is a big fat "NO"! 3. Can you jump start a bike using another bike? Is it worth doing? If so, presumably you should only do this from another bike - and not a car (too much current from a car battery)? 4. This bike has a fuel tap showing "on, off, res". We've set the fuel to "on". Presumably this is ok. 5. As an aside, I have another bike that has a "pri" setting on the fuel tap. When taking the fuel tank off, this setting does not allow fuel to come out. However the "on" setting does. However when the bike is running, the fuel tap has been set to "pri" - does this mean the fuel is pulled through by the engine pressure? When observing the fuel flow through the fuel filter, having the fuel tap set to "pri" shows a dripping stream of fuel, whereas "on" shows a solid stream of fuel. Which setting should i be using for riding? Any help hugely appreciated! Cheers. Sir L.
