Hello
I have a 2002 SV650 and lately it has been starting on the rear cylinder. After a couple of minutes the front cylinder begins to fire and the bike runs fine. Havent given it much thought until the front cylender no longer fires. Initial checks indicate the plug is firing but in fact is dry. In my reading of simalar posts ive found that this bike has a fuel pump and that one float bowl,the front one is higher than the rear. Is it possible that the pump is faulty and the lower or rear cylinder is being gravity feed while the front, or higher carb, is being starved? Any insight would be helpful or any other thoughts on why this is happening. Thank you so much and have a great day.

hi first off check the carb has fuel by undoing the drain screw at the carb base (brass screw)if fuel pours out the pump is fine.

most common fault with the sv front cyl is the plug as it gets water trapped in the recess.
so check this thoroughly and unblock the tiny drain hole (i believe it has one)

fit new plugs so your sure there not faulty:thumb:

hope that helps.
