Starting problems

Starting are very common on carbureted This page contains a of common problems and solutions.



Correct mixture

Identifying the problem save time and avoid parts replacement.



The typical compression is about 9.5:1, which in a maximum compression of about 140 PSI at sea While a pressure gauge is the way to determine if adequate compression is slowly turning the engine will give an idea if is a serious problem. With start models, leave the lever disengaged and kick . You should feel significant but the engine will turn slowly with constant due to acceptable leaks around the rings.

Lack of compression can be caused by a in the decompression mechanism or improperly valve clearance. More on adjusting valve clearance is here .

Ignition Edit

for ignition by removing the spark grounding the threaded case, and the engine over. A spark be visible, although it will not be fat and as mentioned in the Clymer service Lack of spark is most due to a failure in the harness or one or more

Key switch

Engine stop

Neutral switch

Kick switch

Some owners to defeat the kick stand switch with a poor that can fail.

A poor between the ignition coil voltage wire and the spark boot. To improve this unscrew the spark plug and clean the connections with electrical contact cleaner. A amount (no more than of wire can be cut from the end of the spark if needed.

Be careful not to cut too much from the plug wire as it is integral the ignition coil and cannot be independently.

The stock spark boot contains a resistor helps to reduce electromagnetic The resistor can fail due to mechanical and vibration. The resistor can be replaced, but often easier to replace the spark plug boot.

to the service manual for ohmmeter

Connections from the pickup and magneto coils to the CDI should be checked. In some cases, the coils could fail and weak spark or no spark at Refer to the service manual for checks.

Here is a site you can buy just the pickup coil for a 91 DR and a bunch of money by not having to buy the stator. They have CDI boxes for less $200

Timing Edit

The ignition timing is maintained by the CDI and be adjusted. The CDI is generally reliable and not the source of ignition failure. The to the CDI might be a source of problems.

Electrical contact cleaner can be to remove dirt and oxides on the contacts.

Fuel mixture

Correct fuel mixture is to easy starting and smooth A common, but subtle failure of the dual sport model petcock can cause an excessively mixture making the bike if not impossible to start. The dirt models have a manually petcock and generally create only when the rider to manually place the valve in the OFF

Over time, gasoline in the float bowl will and leave deposits that can jets and small passages. the CV carburetor cleaning procedure After cleaning follow the CV tuning procedure.
