If its getting fuel & air..all thats left is spark... check the spark plugs... no fire, no start! This happened to my ATV 2 weeks ago... ran down the battery trying to crank it...then pulled the plug & it was dirty. Filed it down (no stores in the woods) and fired right up! Same symptoms.

Good luck!

won't start

The small vacuum hose on the front facing side of the fuel shut off is a safety shut off. If this has come off, the bike will crank, but won't start. No gas.

Man I'm guilty of that! Really felt foolish after making the discovery.

Don't take this the wrong way but we have all done it.....Is it in nuetral? With the kickstand down the kill switch will not let you start it in gear (even with the clutch in).
While were are visiting "dumb things we have ALL done" is the big red button by the thottle on?
Ok......flame me only if you have never done either on these guys :wink:
Please tell us what it is when you get it running......we need closure here :shock:
