bike wont start!!

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by honeybeesweet, Sep 4, 2007.

  1. hey all new rider... i just hired a bike for a few days it was starting fine but just went to start it then and it wont turn on it wont make a sound at all!! any suggestions??

  2. check the kill swich (usually on the right handle bar)

    if its not that check the battery and connections
  3. kill switch is on... fuel tank is on... even pull out the choke... nothing seems to work
  4. well im not an electrical expert...ive had a bike wont start thread of my own.

    but if theres no sound/lights at all. then electricity isnt getting through somewhere.

    check the battery and jump start/ push start it. if its anything more than batt or a loose connection, get the company you hired it from to worry about it
  5. the lights work so im thinking its not an electrical problem... do you think it is a flat batterey??
