Haynes manual advice

Discussion in 'Everything Else' started by mattb, Mar 14, 2011.

  1. Advice from the Haynes manual for a bike I'm buying - trouble-shooting if the bike won't start:

    1. Is there fuel in the tank? On models without a
    sub-fuel tank, raise the seat and open the main fuel
    tank filler cap (Figure 1). On models with a sub-fuel
    tank, open the sub-fuel tank filler cap (Figure 2) and
    rock the bike from side to side. Listen for fuel
    sloshing around.

    Do not use an open flame to check in the

    'nuff said!
  2. Good advice so far. Hopefully it does go beyond this.
  3. Sometimes a torch just won't cut it...............you need the romantic, warm glow that only a naked flame can give.
  4. There is an old saying... For every stupid warning, there was a moron who needed it
  5. Naked flames are fine.
    You just have to remember to shove a canary in there first.
  6. Can't fix things on an empty stomach, after all :p.
