Bike doesn't start... sometimes. - July 19, 2007, 10:54 AM

My buddy and I rode out to this "bike night" up in DC (TGIF, 193 exit off of 295). When we got ready to leave his bike wouldn't start. He said it has happend before. His lights turn on fine (plenty of juice in the battery), he clicks on the fuel button and it "whines", but when he pushes the starter button... nothing. No click, no nothing. He had to just let it sit for an hour or two and then it fired up like there wasn't any problem. Anybody experience this problem or know what a possible solution would be? It seems to be very random and sporatic. He rides a 2000 GSXR-600.

Mine did that a few times, found out it was the sensor on the clutch lever, if I pressed the started button and pulled in the clutch (never had to pull it in completely) it would finally sense it is in neutral and crank over. Only 1 time did it not work, and all i did was put key to off position then back on and it started right up. If it does that again have him just pull in the clutch a little, mine would crank over within a few secs of me applying a little pressure to the clutch.

just my 2cents worth of info on it

LOL... but no it wasn't. It was more for informational purposes. There are a couple of spots in the DC/Maryland area, Cranberries (sp?) for one. .... anywho the problem is for real.
