« on: November 16, 2017, 08:30:19 AM »

Hi, i have a gv 250 and around 4 years ago i took the tins off her to airbrush, as i got a bigger bike. well as things go it has taken till now to get her back together and i can pass her onto my son.
I put a brand new battery on, swapped the plugs and put in new oil/oil filter. But she refuses to start, not even an atempt.
Anyone know what might be the problem.
I didn't expect her to start first time, but she worked fine last time she was together.
Any comments welcome, i will make a list and go through it all.
Many thanks for reading this.
Cheers
Tony...

Simply remember the basics. Air, fuel , and spark. So. Pop a plug wire off and make sure you have spark  if you do. It is no doubt not getting fuel. So shoot a mall amount of starting fluid into the air cleaner and see if it goes. If it runs a few seconds then you know that you need to go through the fuel system. Maybe old nasty fuel.  If it's carb bike they might need cleaned

If you mean it will spin over but not run.... it's your carbs.

there is a love hate relationship I have with the GV carbs.
I have actually done a carb clean by just removing the float bowels.

you will need to remove the side panel coil bracket and you enough access to remove the bowels.
