electric start

hey new to the board, just came across this site

there is a bunch of really usefull info here it would take me an age to get through it all
and right now im only curious to know one thing so i tought i would get to the point and bring up a topic that im sure ye are all tired of discussing...

i bought a 02 fs650e on wednesday it was a choice between that or an R6

on thursday i spent all day trying to start it but it just was'nt happening.. i felt the electric start was a waste of time i even tried to jump it with the car but still no joy.. i spent the entire day trying to kick it but the husa was stubborn

today i went at it again and managed to get it goin after 45mins so now i can kick start it great... so whats the deal with the electric start is it supposed to work or what

i just want to put this piece of a review i found online from may 2006 im sure most of ye have read it...

"the statring technique? make sure the petcocks are open, pull out the card-mounted enricher; disengage the clutch; squeeze the decompression lever; hit the starter button; let it spin two or three cycles; release the decompression lever and mmwwWWAAAARRrr"
the fs650e will roar to life every time. once i figured out this technique. i secured the kickstart lever and never looked back."


a question on the above review what are the petcocks and the car-mounted enricher is that the choke he is referring to

also how many of ye can start your fs650e's with the button if so can ye pass on your secrets

heres a few pics of my bike in all her stubborn glory

RE: electric start

This is a very nice bike and I hope you saw it start before your eyes, probably on the button when hot?

You need to give it a good strong kick, all the way from the top. Find the soft spot after TDC (point of most resistance), use the decomp lever by the clutch lever to pass. And after that, kick it like a man. Be the spark!

Come back and tell us. But your location so we know where you live!

hey man tks for the complement and the reply

i have the nack in kick starting it now, it took a while but i got it...

what im trying to figure out is why wont it start with the button and what are petcocks

a guy that works in a bike shop told me that he sold a few husabergs over the years and none of them have ever started by the button and i tought that cant be right so where better to ask than here... you know whats the point of including a button start if it aint gonna work

oh yea im living in the good old green isle better known as ireland

The enricher is the choke and the petcocks are the petrol valves on the tank.

What does it do when you use the starter button? Does it try to turn over? Does it just make a clicking sound? Is the battery completely dead?

hey tks for the reply

so the petcocks are the two pegs at either side of the petrol tank that turn on and off the petrol..

on thursday nite i put the battery on charge for a few hrs and again on friday morning while i was making the coffee.. so the battery had plenty of charge in it and just to be sure i got the jump leads out and hooked it up to the car.. turned the ignition pulled in the decompression lever in and hit the start button i could hear it spin a good few times and then the battery starts to fade so i turned it off

i was going to buy a new battery anyway (i usually do when i buy a bike thats a few yrs old) but when i talked to that guy and he was saying that he never sold one that started from the buttom i just gave up on the button idea and started kickin like a mofo

im just curious as to why it wont start from the buttom and how many other people have the same problem

They start flawlessly on the button from 2004 on, and this due to the fact that the Kokusan ignition gives a better spark, that it has a better carburetor, a new auto decomp device on the camwheel, among other internal parts that help do that. I am glad you got it going now.

RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: electric start

y'all are over looking that he has a 2002, and not only a 2002 but the 650 to boot. Raven, there are MANY pages of fixes for your hot button, but what you will need to swallow is that your hot button on that 02 is just that, a HOT button. it was not designed to be an e-start, rather a re-start. check the valves, (some say a bit on the snug side for the hot button) make sure your jetting is good, if you try and start that bike from cold with the button, you will inevitably drain your battery and spin your sprauge clutch, curse like a sailor and possibly end up with broken foot from kicking the bike (and not to start it).

does your bike start on the button when hot?
