I bought a 98 900 and rode it a day before i bought it and it rode fine, but now that i have it home, it wont start!! It has spark and it is getting fuel, but it just wont fire! It trys to but just wont do it. Any ideas? I hope i didnt just blow $2500!

Re: hopefully not a big mistake!!!!

New spark plugs maybe?

If it was working fine, the chances are it won't be anything too serious.

the reason I ask is

neither of mine needed the choke unless it was very cold.... even if, not started for weeks.

when I first got mine. I was used to starting my GSXR that always needed the choke ta start & I flooded it

Re: hopefully not a big mistake!!!!

the guy i got it from said the same thing, that it only needed the choke if itd been sittin a while, but it wouldnt start when i wasnt using the choke so i tried using it and that didnt work either. im gonna change plugs and i took the coils off my 94 to see if the ones on the 98 are just weak

well hopefully, it just a case of you not being used to it's starting routine......

they all got ther own slight foibles.... my first(now loopys) needed no choke, but a very slight bit of throttle just as it fired...
Roadkill needs a bit of throttle as ya crank......

both flood easily if ya choke them in anything but minus tempritures

Re: hopefully not a big mistake!!!!

My 99 600 always had to be started with choke...except when it was hot...go figure

As SB said, they're all quirky in their own little way

Do, or do not, there is no try !
