bike wouldnt start
« on: November 17, 2018, 08:39:14 PM »
Hi guys

Just asking advise

Hadn`t rode my Tiger for 3 weeks and seen the forecast  so I thought I would start her just to make sure I was ok for this Sunday, but she wouldn`t start :161: . Battery was fully charged  and bike was turning over but no joy :191:
Tried again a hour later and she `caught ` for a second  :157:
Tried again later and she `caught ` for a few seconds.
Tried again later and she started :156:

It ain`t a problem , just wondered why  :084:

When I bought my GPZ750 in 1983 if I bipped the throttle when starting it wouldn`t, so I had to change the plugs.


Just wondered if I might have `bipped` the throttle and `wetted` the plugs, dunno if that possible with fuel injection :084:

Anyway she started so I off round the  Peak District on Sunday for ,probably my last run of the year( waiting for the sh*t about riding all year :015: ) ending up at Matlock Bath for fish and chips, it the rule  :152:

Safe riding

Two possibilities come to mind.....
1) if it sat for 3 weeKS and there was water in the fuel it would have settled to the bottom near the fuel pump.
2 ) sometimes the stepper motor doesn't reset after it was last shut down. Turning it off, waiting about a minute for the reset and then another try it should go.
Laterally unstable unless moving.

Gbear-  I got some wet gas this summer that cause my Tiger to run rough for several hours.  After reaching home, 4000 miles later, I parked the bike for 3 weeks.  It was very difficult to start, I had to play with the throttle while operating the starter.  When I parked the bike a second time for about 6 weeks, same problem.  I needed a lot of throttle to get it running.   It seems to be ok now.  I've parked it for a week or more with no hesitation on start up.  So my guess is, you had some wet gas.

it hapened to me twice, after a 3 week stop.
The solution was hit the starter and slowly open the throtle until the engine start.
It may take a few seconds but the fuel arrives and we have the engine running.
