Things to check if your motorbike is not starting

27th December 2021
"There is nothing more frustrating than your motorbike refusing to start just when you have to rush for work or some emergencies."

There is nothing more frustrating than your motorbike refusing to start just when you have to rush for work or some emergencies. But instead of calling up a mechanic at the first sign of a problem, there are steps for what to do when your motorcycle won’t start.

Here are some simple solutions you can use to check out on your bike:

No fuel

When your fuel level goes down, it is very difficult to judge its availability using the gauge and that could also be a reason why your bike isn't starting.

One of the easiest ways is to shake your bike gently when on the main stand and wait to hear that typical slosh of remaining fuel, if any, from the tank.

Alternatively, you could also check it using the flashlight of your mobile phone.

Loose spark plug wire

Loose spark plug wire is not a new thing for motorcycle riders; it can occur due to the jerks or could be a prank. You don't need any mechanic to fix this problem.

Just unplug and re-plug the connectors and try to start the motorcycle again.

Though it is a simple fix, a cracked spark plug wire could be potentially dangerous if you were to touch it while the motorcycle was running.

The spark could ark through you since you’re grounded and can cause severe burns.

Dead battery

This is the easiest problem to diagnose and is probably the most common reason why a motorcycle doesn’t start.

Depending on how low your battery is, if there is some voltage left you may be able to turn the key as well as turn on your blinker, but turning it over is slow and sluggish.

If your battery is completely dead, your motorcycle will not make any noise at all when you try to start it.

Some signs of a dead or a weak battery are when you push the horn button or switch on the headlights, none work well, or report total failure.

Dirty Carburetor

There are ways to tell if a dirty or malfunctioning carburetor is your problem.

If you have an electric starter, take your air intake off, push the starter, and squirt starter fluid straight into your carburetor.

If it starts and revs up for a few seconds then that means you have a dirty carburetor. you’ll need to thoroughly clean your carbs.

To do this, you’ll have to take off the air intake then detach the carburetor from your motorcycle engine.

Engine cut off switch

Not every rider uses their kill switch with regularity, but if you have used it recently, the engine cutoff switch may be still activated.

Most of the time we use the ignition key to turn off the motorcycle instead of the engine kill or cut-off switch.

So when we use it, we forget to turn off the switch sometimes and keep trying to crank the engine.

Basic bike servicing tips

21st December 2021
"Any vehicle, whether it is a bike or a car begins to age and stops providing optimum fuel efficiency as it did in the first few years."

Any vehicle, whether it is a bike or a car begins to age and stop providing optimum fuel efficiency as it did in the first few years. This is especially true of scooters and bikes as they are smaller vehicles and exposed to more wear and tear.

But all this can be avoided if you maintain and service your bike regularly, and as recommended by your service provider.

Inspect the tires regularly:

It is incredibly important to check the tires of the two-wheeler regularly. You must thoroughly examine the air pressure in the tires.

Ensure that the tire air pressure is maintained at levels recommended by the bike manufacturer.

Also, look for scrapes or cuts, possibilities of punctures, and unpredictable blowouts. Tires should be checked at least once a week.

Check the engine oil:

One of the most important bikes servicing tips to keep in mind is that the bike's engine should also be checked.

It is the engine oil that enables the smooth operation of the bike.

You must ensure that the proper engine levels are maintained and also inspect if there are any leakages.

Running the bike on dirty engine oil also increases fuel consumption and reduces the life of the engine drastically.

Adjust the clutch:

You can change gears by adjusting the clutch. It helps to increase or decrease the speed at which the bike is operated.

The clutch should be adjusted in a way that you can operate it freely.

Over tightening the clutch can cause your vehicle to slip and even increase the consumption of fuel.

It is important to ensure that the clutch adjustment is always in the right place.

Inspect the engine:

Your bike can run smoothly only if the engine is properly maintained and serviced.

It also increases fuel efficiency and reduces the money you spend on petrol. You should also clean the carburetor regularly.

The carburetor float chamber should be inspected and cleaned for every 1500 kilometers of usage.

Check the brakes:

Bikes brakes, like the clutch and engine, also endure maximum wear and tear.

Ensure that you keep both brakes holding the tire and spacing them properly.

It is very dangerous if you tighten your brakes too much as it is if the brakes are too loose.

Brakes should only be adjusted to suit your requirement and riding style.

If you hear a screeching sound you need to replace the front brake pads, since this could be caused owing to a lack of oil.
