Engine Starting w/Low Battery

If you are worried about starting your bike after it is sitting for a long time then this is the way to make sure the headlight stays off....
  • Turn the key on and count to three (you will hear clicking as the carbs are filled by the fuel pump). Turn the key off.
  • Turn the key on and count to three (you will hear clicking as the carbs are filled by the fuel pump). Turn the key off.
  • Turn the key on and count to three (you will hear clicking as the carbs are filled by the fuel pump). Turn the key off.

Now your carbs are full, which is absolutely necessary in order to start your bike. The carbs tend to be rather empty if you have not ridden in a couple of weeks. Set the choke, put the bike in neutral and push the starter button and hold it there. Then turn the key to the "on" position. The bike will start immediately. Of course now you can let go of the starter button, and the lights will turn on. When my bike has a low charge, or it is very cold out, I sometimes start the Venture this way. .........Scott MacMartin
