No Start

Recommended Posts

I have a 1997 Honda XL650R and it's sat all winter and now that it's getting up to the 60's I wanted to give her a start.

I had to charge the battery a bit but once I got that back in I could not even get a pop out of the bike.

I didn't open the petcock until I had closed the choke and then pressed the start button in attempt to prevent flooding it. I read once that this is the best way to get them started cold.

I drained the bowl after not getting it started and then attempted it again with the gas open and choke full and not full and yet again nothing.

Any suggestions??

Try less choke. Also check kill switch. My XR (not a 650R) is sensitive to too MUCH gas. When it wont go, its usually slightly flooded. Check your plug and clean it / re-gap it if it really gives you trouble.
