03 fs650

Hi all,

Just took ownership of a 2003 FS 650, bought it in a auction. No history on the bike. I have give it a check for oil and water, both are OK. I have been told there is a method to starting these bikes can anyone on here give some advice and a few pointers on what to check before starting and on the starting method?

Thanks in advance

well you need to check for spark and you know how to pull the plug and lay it on the head in the plug cap and search for spark.

next thing is; ' does the plug get wet?'
you should drop the float bowl off the carb and clean two important jets. one is covered by the mexican hat (ant-slosh) and that is the PJ and the other stands on its own in the corner and that is the choke jet.

after that you need to have the bike on something like a jack-in-the-box stand and kick the shit out of it. fast and driviing - and advise an MX boot as you defo can kick harder!

they don't like choke so shoke on for 1-2 kicks and then off for the next 5. I do various videos on my FB page that give you an inkling into what is needed.
