After shipping...bike not starting..help!
This is actually a question about an XTZ750, but im hoping anyone can help me! We have just recieved our bike after shipping it fom Vancouver to Wellington. Prior to shipping, we did all the usual..drained oil and petrol, disconncected the battery etc. It was in freight for at the most 4 and a half weeks.
It arrived on the weekend, my partner put it all back together....and she wont start. The engine turns over, but just wont kick in. Weve charged the battery in a battery charger, but because we keep trying to start it over and over, the battey keeps dying and its juices are never really at its maximum.
We checked the spark plugs, the oil is full, full petrol.
Has anyone had this problem after shipping? And can anyone lend any advice on what this could be? It is an old bike, 1990, but the motor has been so strong. We had some problems in Mexico with the voltage regulator, so maybe this has had a lasting effect on the battery?? Has being on a boat in the sea water in the air have anything to do with it?!! anything?!
