Injector Cleaning K100rt-1986
Usually, any time a bike doesn't start, a couple preliminary checks validating fuel and ignition will usually isolate or tend to steer you toward the reason your bike won't start. Barring any major malfunction, such as timing, most of the problems will eventually surface, sometimes with a little help from your friends (such as this site).
I purchased this bike today and it wasn't running. It refused to start. Now you may say why the hell did you want a bike that didn't run, well the bike has no miles on it and it is probably an 8 out of 10 for an 86. It belonged to a widow and she needed the money. Corbin, bags, top box, new battery, tires, extra windscreen and seat, plus she threw in a brand new /5 tank (white). I paid less than a grand for the bike. It isn't starting. I removed the fuel line to fuel log, spliced in a length of tube and hit the starter, lots of fuel came out. So that eliminated the filter and pump for the time being. I replaced the plugs but still no start. I pulled the cap off #1 plug, put in a spare, grounded it and hit the starter. Lots of spark!!!! So why doesn't it want to start???!!! I have fuel and ignition. The only thing I cannot guarantee is that the injectors are working and not plugged. The gas smelled like Pepsi-Cola so I drained it and intend to put fresh gas in it tomorrow. There was lots of debris in the bottom of the tank of the tank. If it would get through the filter, is it possible that the injectors would plug? BTW, when I changed plugs, they were dry which is a symtom of no fuel even tho the pump is working and the filter is passing gas.
Is there a way to remove and clean the injectors? Thanks....
