    Interesting.. 400.

    So that thing connected to the battery, is the starter relay? Just making sure. Thanks for the help.

    Just checked out the bike, started all good, want to go for a ride, but the damn rain..

    Check the battery contacts first, the earth to the frame and the starter.

    Then check the fuse in the starter relay and it's contacts.

The day I got it back, I went for a ride, and all was good, went to a mates, and only dropped by for around 10-15 minutes. Went to start the bike, and nada. Only got one clicking sound. Only one. Jump started it, and the battery was around 12.5, which I read is normal. All was good for around a week, until an hour ago. Stalled the bike on a hill, and same thing happened, got one click again.

    Was pretty annoyed, as it was raining, walked to my friends, and got the battery jump starter kit, but could not find an allen key, or any screw drivers, so I ended up calling nrma, on hold for 15 minutes, and I got ahold of them, I was going back to my bike, and giving them my details, so they can come around around and help me, I got to my bike, and just thought I'll see if it works......and it started up fine.

    I'll go and see my mechanic tomorrow, and see whats going on.. now I'm back to being paranoid, that my bike won't start, so I don't like going somewhere, and turning it off, and walking up to it, thinking, is it going to start...

    I suspect these problems...
    spark plug 1,4 burnt, plugs 2,3 were okay
    engine overheated
    excess water in overflow pipe
    possible head-gasket was old and broke
    water + steam coming from HEAD!!!!

    Possible water going into chamber No 1, making it hard to run and idle.

    Checked oil and is milky*dripping*

    GOD SAVE MY BIKE!

    has anyone ever tried to use starting fluid on their bike? . (just curious as it works like a charm on cars.)

    Aerostart can be a useful diagnosis tool, but that is all.
    It should never be used as a band-aid to problems.

    RE: The Official "MY BIKE WONT START" Thread!

    If your bike only starts when you give it a lot of choke then stays up in high revs or redlines the engine then either your throttle is stuck open or your idle screw is in way too much. If it's not the idle screw then it'll be a problem somewhere either along the cable or inside the carb. It'll almost completely stop the bike from starting unless you give it a lot of choke but then it'll stay in high revs or redline.

    When I had this problem, it was a splitter cable under the tank that took the main throttle cable and split it into two cables for the top and side of the carb. A cable head had slipped out was stuck just above the port it's supposed to sit in so after disassembling the carb thinking the slider was stuck somehow, it was just a case of putting the cable head back into its hole. It was covered over by a rubber cover so wasn't easy to spot!

    Start with the simplest thing to check first - find if it's a problem along the cable by detaching it inside the throttle handle so it can be fully slack and then if the bike starts up and doesn't redline then the problem is definitely just somewhere along the cable. You could also visually check if the slider is sitting all the way back down by looking into the back of the carb so you'll have to unscrew the air filter behind it and move it out of the way so you can get a look into it. You could use a small mirror if you can't get an angle to look in easily. The slider should close fully to completely block the hole, not sit half open.

    If making the cable slack doesn't fix it then the carb throttle slider is most likely stuck open either by not being put in right or by being twisted or something could be in the way so you'll have to take off and open up the carb... then you might as well give it a clean while you're at it! Just don't lose any bits and take pictures as you go to make sure you put it back how it was. Especially the screws.. turn them all the way in and count the half turns to find the setting.
