    Default My bike won't start

    I rode my bike with the petcock off now it won't start it's a 2008, 3009 miles , never dropped. When I try to turn it over I can hear the motor combust in synchronization with the starter, sometimes it starts for half a second then dies. When it does start for 1/2 second I try to increase the gas but doesn't rev. If you have any thoughts or concerns please feel free to let me know thanks

    Did you turn the petcock to On or Res?

    lean the bike to the right and tap the carb with a screwdriver handle on the float bowl. the float bowl got empty and probably got stuck.

    Disconnect the fuel line from the carburetor. Hold over a glass cup. Turn the petcock to On or Res and make sure fuel flows freely.
