Motorcycle starts then dies

then for the heck of it, i removed the air filter ( i dont know why i did, i was running out of ideas lol), and it starts everytime. So without air filter, i would attempt to start the bike, it would start, idle down then die. i would attempt 2nd time, it would start idle down, then die. and this would happen repeatedly.

Motorcycle only starts with carb cleaner/starter fluid. 2000 Ninja ZX6R the bike only starts when i spray starter fluid or carb cleaner into the intake. It fires up revs really high for one or two seconds then dies. Fuel is flowing from petcock to fuel pump and the pump is pumping into carbs (I've tested it with removal of fuel line for pump to ...
It has a new battery, but I left it on the trickle charger this winter. Got the bike out and rode it to work a couple times. All of a sudden, when I start the bike, it runs for 2 seconds or so then dies. Put the run button on, hit "start" and it does the same thing and dies. Turn the bike off, and the key light comes on the instrument panel.
Re: Bike will only start with choke opened up, then dies. « Reply #6 on: October 11, 2016, 08:26:24 am ». Yes, choke must be on (rich a/f ratio) for engine to start at all, and then it only starts up for a moment (reving really high when it does this), then dies. I've only had the bike a couple months and haven't cleaned carbs yet.

I then took out the battery and charged it with my Motorcycle trickle charger! It worked fine till last night. So when this problem happened I first thought there might be something wrong with the battery and I replaced it today but nothing changed. It starts and then the car shut off in a couple of seconds with the cluster light being out.
Start your bike with the choke and it will probably rev to 3500-4000 rpm, but don't let it. It may also rev higher when you begin to turn the choke down. Just keep turning the choke down until the rpm's lower. Find the happy medium where it's at a fast idle, 1500-2500 rpm.
Discussion Starter · #1 · Mar 30, 2010. Brother's new 99 400 will idle for 5-30 min then die suddenly. Replaced plug, cleaned air filter, verified fuel flow, and sprayed carb cleaner everywhere he could. Previous owner said some type of vacuum diaphram needed to be replaced and there was evidence the carb had been apart.

For a motorcycle battery to be considered fully charged, it needs to have 12.6 volts. 12.4 volts is considered 75% charged, 12.2 is considered 50% charged and ...
However, it suddenly goes down and dies. You try it again, it's the same thing. There are two things that are included in this scenario: It could possibly be a temporary problem that goes away later in the day. But then it does happen regularly. So, it still is a problem. It happens all the time, every time, rendering your motorcycle unusable.
Jun 05, 2012 · It doesn't matter if the bike starts or not, what you're looking for is a voltage reading. A healthy 12 volt motorcycle battery should maintain a range from 9.5 - 10.5 volts under the load, for a good 30 seconds straight. If the battery begins to hold and then steadily declines, there is a problem. If the voltage drops to 0 volts, there is a ...
