Getting a munual takes 3 to 4 weaks, so i don't think i'm over my head, trying to repair it before that. And yes, i have ordered it.
BUY A MANUAL.
Could be anything from electrical to fuel. IS YOUR TANK ON NORMAL OR RESERVE?!?!?!?!? I have seen that problem before where a rider will not be able to ride the bike because it wasn't able to start, and all it needed was GAS.
I don't need gas, just bought plenty of it yesterday.
Also, using the start button to get somewhere is a great way to overheat your starter and electrical system. It might not cause problems now, but could in the future. Not very smart at all.
Yes, i am fully aware of that, and i know what it can take.
How many volts does the battery have?
I don't have anything to measure it with, but it's new, and seems to be just as good as the old one. The problem has been there with both batteries
How many volts is the alternator feeding to it when running?
When was the last time the carbs were cleaned?
Don't know, i just bought it. And i can't call up the guy asking him about it.
Did you check the vacuum lines from the tank to the carbs?
No. I figure if the line is clogged, it will stay that way, and not get clogged on ocations, and work fine other times.
How about the CDI box? DO YOU GET SPARK?!?!?!?
To tell you the truth, i haven't been able to check that, Whenever i want to, the bike starts, but wont rev and runs strangely. So obviously the spark is there, but i have not been able to check it while the bike could not start.
Are the plugs fouled, or have they been flooded recently?
How old is the gas in the tank?
Are your handlebar/sidestand kill switches sticking?
Is the airbox blocked?
If it was blocked, it would stay that way, and not on and off.
How old is the air filter?
Does that bike have a fuel pump (I don't think it does). If it does, are the lines hooked up correctly? Is your ground wire loose?
It doesn't to my knowledge.
Depression and desparation do not solve problems. LEARN YOUR BIKE INSIDE AND OUT. DON'T BE SQUIDLY AND GET A MANUAL.
Isn't that what i'm doing right now, while waiting for a manual?
