Cbr600 blocked injector

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by basejumper, Jun 8, 2015.

  1. Hi peeps.
    Picked up a 01 gsxr600 for $800
    Put new plugs and fuel in it
    It's still not starting
    It will run using a can of start ya bastard
    Fuel pump is flowing ok
    Pulled injectors out and one of them is blocked
    Would one blocked injector be stopping it from starting ?
    Any one got any backyard remedies to clean an injector out?
    I would have thought it would still start but just run rough.
    Tx guys

  2. A blocked injector will certainly give you problems. Make sure the tank is clean and the filters (both the intake screen and high pressure filter) aren't damaged.

    Soak the injector in a jar with clean, non-ethanol fuel and some injector cleaner (MIGHT work, no guarantees)


    take it to a mechanic that has an ultrasonic cleaner (a diesel mechanic might be your best bet)


    replace it
