It will not start after it's been ran and warmed up. I let it set for 15 minutes then it starts.



I have replaced head gaskets, timing belts. it starts really easy when its cold.

My 1100 is also hard to start when it is hot. I think it has to do with the starter motor itself. Once it cools for a few minutes it starts fine.

I have had luck with being sure that there is absolutely NO drag on the starter. This is done by not only holding in the clutch but also being sure it is in neutral.

You will find many discussions on this here with a search. It's usually the starter motor needs strip & clean and mayebe new brushes and bearings. There is a recent tutorial with pictures here, possibly in the reference forum.

Do you mean it cranks but won't start or does it not want to crank, turn over, spin etc.? The 1100 I have had a hard starting problem in that after I ride it, especially in very warm weather, wouldn't start(fire) immediately. I put an electric pump(Randakk's conversion) on it and turn the key on, let it sit for 10-15 seconds to let the bowls fill back up and zoom off I go. You can see how all that engine heat right under the bowls could cause the gas to vaporize. With a mechanical pump, it takes a bit of cranking to have the pump fill the bowls.

:waving:Sure sounds like a tired starterthat is inneed a through cleaning and probably new brushes as has been suggested in previous post. Once this is done you shouldn't have any more starting issues when engine is warm.

I would like to know which scenario he is speaking of. Is it spinning up like it does when it's cold, or is it dragging? If it's spinning(cranking normally) then it's not a starter issue. That's all I would like to know. :cool:

When this all started I hac blown head gaskets, after all the bike set for two years in the backyard

I removed the heads and replaced gaskets, (I got them from Saber Cycle) the left one sealed and the right one did not. So after I got it running it was over heating and when it did start it ran fine. 160 pound of persure on all cylenders. but when I would turn it off I could hear water boiling in the over flow tank and it would not even crank. the next morning it would

I put head gasket sealer in the cooling system with clean water and followed the manufacture directions.

When I put 50/50 antifreez in it I was able to start it ran for 20 minutes, tjhen turned it off.

when I would try to start it after that it would barly turn over. I waited 10 minutes tried again, the starter worked. the bike started, all was good.

This is the norm at this time. the bike runs great.

Well, if you bought head gaskets from Saber Cycle, be ready to change them again in a couple of months when they fail. This has been document on numerous occasions already about their cheap aftermarket head gaskets.
