View Full Version : K75 - Won't Start - Any Ideas
Out of winter storage and won't kick over, here's what I know:
Had a couple of backfires
Got good crisp spark on plugs
Gas to plugs OK
Tried to push start with no luck
Wanted to buy diagonstic for checking ignition timing but local dealer won't sell, not sure where to go for that.

Sounds like it might be flooded. Leave the spark plugs out overnight to dry the cylinders and the spark plugs, and try it again in the am.
One other thing: did you remove the fuel injection computer to check the battery for any reason over the winter? If that big connector isn't fully seated/snapped into the computer, the bike definitely won't start at all.

The kill switch on the handlebars? It'll get'cha every time.
And don't worry about how I know to check that ...

always get back to basics!
air / fuel
take a spare plug and connect it, crank it, to confirm spark
cant hurt to check plug gap
maybe check fuel filter not enough gas? or crud in filter
eliminate one thing at a time
if you have to push start it cause the battery is to low you dont have enough power for the computer

TRY REPLACING THE PLUGS AGAIN.
HAD THIS PROBLEM A FEW YEARS AGO.
HAD SOMEHOW DAMAGED A PLUG ON REPLACING. TOOK ME TOO LONG TO GET BACK TO PLUGS.
