Sounds like you are definitely dealing with low voltage symptoms.
Personally I would suspect the battery first. The age of it means little. I would also check the connections for the battery and clean them. Make sure to check both ends of the ground wire.
Another problem I see a lot that causes these exact symptoms is when the interior fusebox/bcm (whatever ...
Based on the description and the comments, this sounds like it may be a bigger job than you had first suspected.
I have removed the jugs and could see where a piston was smacking the heads so there were metal filings from that. It doesn't look like those filings were preventing the piston motion.
That is a potentially serious engine issue. If I recall ...
I have the same car.
I would recommend getting an inexpensive multimeter and learning how to use continuity mode which will tell you if two wires are connected or not.
Next time you get a no start condition, use the multimeter to determine if the starter solenoid is getting the signal to start. If the multimeter indicates continuity, you know it's your ...
I would recommend adjusting the pilot screws in both the front and rear carbs. To do this, get the bike warmed up, then turn a pilot screw in under the bike starts running rough, and turn that same pilot screw out until the bike starts running rough. Set the screw in between those two points. Repeat the process with the other carb.
For what it's worth, my ...
Your suspicions are correct. Don't forget to check the oil level. It will probably start just fine the next day. If not:
--turn off the fuel supply using the red knob I see in the picture.
--move the fast/slow (silver) lever to the "fast" position.
--pull-start the cord many times.
--shake the entire unit from wheel-to-wheel (side-to-side) ...
My question is, Is it ok, not to have it fixed? Will this cause problems in the future if I decided not to have it fix?
If the problem is the starter motor itself then leaving it has two potential downsides:
It may eventually fail completely - sod's law ensures that if it does so it will be at the most inconvenient time possible, either because you're ...
If it’s like mine you’re having fuel vapour lock issues.
It’s relieved by taking the plastic cover off the engine, just tug to release, under there is a fuel rail, at the end is a blue cap, remove it.
Then there’s a little pressure valve, like on a tyre, just press and a bunch of air AND fuel will release. Should work then.
