Hyosung GT250R not starting!
« Reply #20 on: January 10, 2008, 11:18:44 AM »

IT LIVES!!!


I checked the fuse but it was identical to the other one - both it and the spare were in new condition. So I put them back in.

Went to get my multimeter out to test the battery, but then went back and just sat on the bike, turned the key and hit the starter, in case the WD40 had worked its magic over the last 24 hours. It had :)

I did it 4 times in a row - off then on again - plenty of juice in the battery, and flawless starting! I can only imagine there was crud or water in the switch somehow... I have been riding rain, hail or shine - even rode through some of the flooding when it was pelting down, as I had to be somewhere.

So yeah. Thanks for the suggestions folks. Muchly appreciate it!

it is my knowlege that a fuse may look ok but in fact is no good. By switching the fuses probably cured the problem if it was the wd40 then the problem will come back sooner or later.

Didn't swap the fuses, and this one has since tested fine!! WD40 FTW :)

Okay first you have to figure out if the bike will run to rule out it being a problem with the motor. I have done this a lot last year because my battery was so bad. you turn everything on like you do when its running put the bike in second gear hold in the cluch in and bump start it. in other words push the bike till you get to a jog hop on and let the clutch out if it starts right up its a problem with the starter or the electrical going to the starter or a fuse problem. it sound like a starter problem.

I'm not sure if I would bump start my bike because its damaging hard on the trans...

Periodic bump starts won't do any damage. Now if your only starting method was bump starting that might be another story, but even then I'm not sure it would be disastrous...

thats why you bump start it in second gear and not first it eases the transmission instead of a hard jerk like you would get out of first gear and i actually saw a guy do it in first gear and too much trottle and bam he was on his back and buying new farings for his bike.

Have you tried doing it before? I hadn't, except in cars, until the other night. Did it in second, going down my gently sloping driveway. The engine slowly turned for a moment when I released the clutch, and the engine fired right up.

I'd imagine gearing up or down in high RPMs, even when rev-matching, would be more damaging/wear-and-tear on the trannie than a push start.

Anyone else with an opinion on that??
