Let me try to get us back on topic.

The other day I went to pick up my wife from work (in my Jeep Liberty) and as we were going down Clay Rd we spotted a guy pushing his bike on the opposing lanes; we had things to do but I still decided to go help him. I pulled up behind him with my hazards on so he could take a break, once I checked it out I told him I could push start him (I had jumper cable but no 10mm socket/wrench, it was a CBR 600RR). So I told him to hop on and gave him all of the instructions (this was his first bike); when I got him at a good speed I yelled “dump the clutch” and the rear wheel just locked up. After catching my breath I discovered that he left his “Run” switch off, we gave it another go and bam! It fired right up. I told him to hurry home because this can ruin your rectifier followed by your stator and that’s not a cheap fix.

These are my personal steps that I have used over the years, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong as I am not a motorcycle mechanic, just an enthusiast.

How to push start a motorcycle. It's much easier in a parking garage if you are in the higher floor levels, some of you may understand.

1. Turn ignition/run switch on
2. Get in 1st gear and hold the clutch
3. Ask a friend (or try it yourself) to push your bike as fast as he can
4. Once you achieve a good speed you must follow the next step simultaneously.
5. Dump the clutch, give it gas, grab the clutch (if it starts) then give it more gas.
6. This will only give you about 10-15 mins of run time (if you follow the "note" steps) before it cuts out again.

* Try not to use electrical stuff; downshift to avoid using the brake light (don't lose focus on safety, use your brakes if you must), use hand signals instead of blinkers and try to maintain a steady RPM.
* If it is daytime (all of these steps are impossible to follow at night) and you have access to your fuse box, remove the Headlight fuse/relay as this will put less of a burden on your regulator/rectifier and your stator (but the rectifier is usually the first thing to go) CAUTION: some rectifiers on older CBR's can/will eventually catch on fire, it happened to me on my 900RR.
*These steps are not designed to get you very far, just out of harm’s way. I.e. to a gas station, properly lit area or a safe place to load onto a trailer or truck.

I have gone through these steps a number of times over the years and they do work.

You'd be better off if you shift into second gear. First gear will often lock the rear tire and you will skid to a stop.
The mechanical advantage is different in second gear. It will spin the motor much easier.

Other than that the above instructions are all good advice.

Cool, I hadn't thought of that. Though I always took off in 2nd on most of my bikes (on flat gound) while commuting, I hadn't put that together.

Thanks, now I know for next time.

Totally agree.

Unless you have, like me, a Ninja. Won't shift to 2nd while stopped. Still trying to figure out why they did that....
