Yzf600r hard to start

I have a older carb'd yami 600 and it's always been a pain to get it started when the engine was cold but would eventually start and be fine after that. Here lately it's been really bad, I can't get it to start at all. I can push start it in my driveway and it'll pop over first try no problem. But I am getting tired of having to push it and want it to start right off everytime, what woulld fix this problem?

The only difference between a push start and crank start:

the amperage draw from the battery is less due to no starter engagement.


on a carbed bike it needs vacuum from the venturi funnel to begin to pull fuel into the manifold/cylinder; which only happens from the cylinders recipocating.

So... Carb-ed bikes need to crank and have bowls in the carburator filled w fuel. If the bike sits till the weekend it will take more cranking to fill the bowls.


The choke also aids in cold start. Make sure the cables do infact move the selector shaft.

As mudbug mentioned, sparkplugs without fowling, a clean fuel filter and cleaned carbs all aid in the induction of fuel/ignition sooner.

After that, replace the battery if it starts slowly.
