I could barely start my 996 V-twin when the battery started to out on me. 2nd gear, running start, jump on the seat as hard as I could.

Fuel injected bikes, like my Busa, will not push start. I rolled the Busa down a parking garage when I left the lights on all day at work. Even with the motor humming, lights on, and all gauges green, the fuel pump never started up. I had to jump start it. Something for Mad Max to think about....

Good to know! I haven't had to try and push start my Z1k (FI), just my old CB750K (Carb).

Maybe it has something to do with the fuel pump not priming since that happens right when the key is turned on?

Don't tell my FZ that... found it was easiest to do in 3rd/4th gear.

Three of us push started my 'busa a couple weekends ago. Wasn't easy though.

, you had no power left on that battery-you need to at least have the fuel pump providing positive pressure to get it going.

My favorite was my F2/F3 I hadn't ridden in a while and it wasn't starting-so I pulled it out to the street to start it up in my full leathers. I eventually found out the carbs were gummed up too but not until I had completely run around 2 blocks pushing a bike in my full leathers in the New Orleans heat.

I guess thats how you learn, I managed to push start and R1 in a parking lot with gravel once. At the end of the lot tried to turn around but ended laying it down, never saw that coming.....

Push start on gravel is almost the same as having a car pull start it.

My busa will push start with one person with just a slight downhill slope, but you do need some battery power to run the fuel pump.

you can push start just about anything manual with a little momentum. I can roll my vehicle down my driveway and start it. A bike is even easier. It's all about how you do it.
