wont start, need some help please!
First off, let me start with a little background on what happened to the bike. It was a basket case when I got it, but its a 96 cbr900rr. The bike was overheated or something. I live in Indiana so we have cold winters and there was water in the radiator so that might have messed something up. Either way, there was a nasty section in the cam chain area that blew out in the cylinder head. I found a new head off ebay for a 97' which to my knowledge works with my year. With that I also got a gasket kit and a few other misc. parts I needed. I got it pretty much all the way buttoned up, but I'm starting to do some of the wiring and having issues. For starters, its got no body so no lights or instrument cluster. I only have some lights in the back by the license plate for running lights and brakes. Have lights for blinkers, but not worried about those at the moment, just wanna get it running.
I guess my question is what all exactly needs to be plugged in to get the bike to start? I'm guessing things like the neutral indicator, side stand switch, kill switch, and starter button are needed, but things like the temp sensors and other odds and ends. Do I need the clutch sensor plugged in, and also do I need to have the clutch in to start the bike? I thought as long as the neutral switch/light was on it would start with no clutch or kick stand. Not too sure, and any help is GREATLY appreciated!!! I thought I had basically everything plugged up temp. and tried to start her, but wasn't getting anything. Well, it was turning over with the starter and the lights in the back were working. The sounds it was making sounded familiar coming out the exhaust (like it had decent timing, nothing was clicking to my knowledge or banging against anything). I think I wasn't getting spark, but not sure. I wanna run compression checks also.
With all that, the oil and radiator fluid did mix, making that chocolate milk looking crap and then the bike did sit for a bit taken apart. What can I do to clean the carbs? As I'm thinking that could be an issue also. When I took the fuel tank back off, there was gas in the line after the petcock and before the carbs, but that doesn't mean its flowing well inside them.
Thanks again for any help!
