Hi, Maureen if you have an old bike that has not had regular fuel system maintenance and you run the fuel tank dry I feel your pain. All the contaminants water-dirt-rust-liner paint flakes-ethanol sludge etc. that lived in the bottom of your fuel tank get mixed with the last few oz's. of fuel left in the tank and enter the fuel system clogging up fuel filters-fuel valves-fuel lines-carburetor jets-needle jets and seats-fuel injectors etc. You fill up your fuel tank and guess what your bike does not start or if it does it runs poorly, complete cleaning of the fuel system is mandatory, the procedure is as follows:
1. Drain the fuel tank and inspect the inside for leftover uninvited guests decontaminate as necessary for rusty environments install a liquid fuel tank liner.
2. In tank fuel pumps with external filters need to be cleaned.
3. Fuel valves need to be rebuilt with a new gasket kit.
4. Fuel lines need to be inspected for integrity and replaced as necessary any inline fuel filter should be cleaned or replaced.
5. Carburetors need to be disassembled then "DIPPED" and soaked in a commercial carb cleaning solution Gunk sells 1/2 gallon pails with meshed screen baskets. Reassemble using new rebuild kits. Record all jet sizes and float level for fine-tuning.
6. Fuel injectors and fuel rails need to be properly cleaned and tested for optimum performance, if necessary send off any suspect injectors to "InjectorRx.com" for a modest fee they will refurbish the unit back to factory specs.

There are 2 ways you can attempt to fix your cases. The best way but most costly would be to have the cases welded ( heliarc ). Of coarse this would involve taking the motor completely apart. Or you can try JB-weld. I have repaired many cases with JB-weld. The key to repairing with JB weld is mixing it 60 - 40 not 50 - 50, using 60% steel and 40% hardener. It may take a couple of layers of the JB weld to repair the cases, so apply it maybe a day apart. Mixing it the way i do it does take longer to fully cure so be patient. Plus you have to have the cases clean and free of any oil or dirt. It also helps to rough up the cases with a piece of sandpaper or a dremel.

Double check that fuel line has no obstruction. Ether is not a good way of starting it. It can cause the engine to rely on that solution to start.

There are two clutches. Each clutch is independently controlled by its own electro-hydraulic circuit. When a gear change occurs, the system pre-selects the target gear using the clutch not currently in use. The first clutch is then electronically disengaged as, simultaneously, the second clutch engages.

As you begin braking the transmission begins shifting downward causing compression braking, down shifting down into first gear at only a few MPH. Normally you would downshift to lower gears manually to get this braking effect. This new system does it automatically.

Unlikely a recently manufactured vehicle would be 6 volt - a 6 volt battery has only 3 cells while a 12 volt battery has six - the number of cells is usually fairly obvious.

If you have any doubt, the working voltage is mostly stamped or engraved on the base of most of the light bulbs.

Hi, Don before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.

11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
