Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. With the indulgence of Doug and should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the make & model of the bike. Additionally, what are the observed symptoms/faults? Still, with the basics (if have not been tried) and if related:• inspect the battery & ground lines and/or check/clean the battery cables + terminals as a preliminary consideration. Better yet, have the battery externally charged and then load tested (even if new and just for the purpose of eliminating it as a suspect);• change to fresh fuel;• carefully remove the sparkplug;• check if the tip is wet with fuel;• carefully perform a spark test;• results would indicate: - if not wet or very wet, then fuel delivery issue; - if no/weak spark then electrical/ignition concern;• consider replacing the sparkplug(s) (even if new and just for purposes of eliminating as suspect(s).Please post back results / observations of the above once tried.
