Re:Problems with turn over 7 Years, 1 Month ago  
Lifeguard, others might chime in here, but most states have an implied warranty when you purchase a veh through a dealer. As a direct result, the dealer should be willing to help you right now. Wait and that may not happen.

Check the paperwork you signed. There should be some standard form in there telling you about your rights in the purchase of a used vehicle. Just be glad you got it from a dealer. If you bought it from an individual, you'd be on your own completely.

Hope it helps.

Ratl.

Re:Problems with turn over 7 Years, 1 Month ago  
wow thanks so much for the advice. I am going to check the:

Terminals and wiring to/from the battery to make sure of solid contact

Pull plugs and crank to see if they are filling/filled with gas and then work on carb

make sure that the gas is off when not using

Pump is not factory so it still may be an issue

Can't go ack to dealer as I purchased directly from owner, dealer was only holding on to it (friend of sales guy). I am sure owner did not know about this problem.

will let everyone know what is going on with this thing in the future.

Thanks all so much. This site is great.

A good, smart 'Battery Tender" can be your best friend. BTW,

Battery is good and is on a tender. I have several bikes and this is the new one in the stable but she still deserves a good tender once in a while.

Re:Problems with turn over 7 Years, 1 Month ago  
Nice try Huskerbob but it is getting gas. The clicking is there, I cant get it to actually turn over more than one time. It just strains and then nothing and then a series of rapid clicking form somewhere near the battery. When hooked to the car battery it just slowly, and I mean one every eight to ten seconds, turns over and then stops after the third or forth trun. So again I am thinking it is compression from over filled cylinders. Cold as a witches hind end right now so no go one the testing. will have to wait until this weekend when I cna get the heater in the garage fired up. Frustrating

Take the compression solenoid cover off and manually push it in as you crank the bike and see if it starts then.

Re:Problems with turn over 7 Years, 1 Month ago  
Yeah did that and after pouring over the tech section onthe forum I am really suspicous ofthe battery cable issue. Seems like from eveything I am reading and what I am seeing on the bike it has to be the cable/battery/something electrical. I am changing the cables and the battery this weekend and I will bet that is it. Will let you guys know (personally I think the dealership "mechanic" was full of crap!)
