 ===== Engine Won't Start ===== ===== Engine Won't Start =====
-I went to start my FZR a while ago to go for a ride, it made about a half a crank and made a huge BAAANG!!! the starter would not budge the engine. I stripped the entire bike down thinking I was going to have to replace a camshaft or a timing chain.... I was wrong. As I looked down the intake boots just for inspection, I found # cylinder had about a 1/4" of fuel sitting in the intake port, it was at this point I felt like a dumbass.  +I went to start my FZR a while ago to go for a ride, it made about a half a crank and made a huge BAAANG!!! the starter would not budge the engine.

-I turned the ignition on, stood back and bumped the starter with the plug still removed and a geyser of fuel shot out of #1 cylinder. Now I have to look into the # 1 carb and figure out why the float needle is not working. And change my oil now that it's full of gasoline.\\  ​+I turned the ignition on, stood back and bumped the starter with the plug still removed and a geyser of fuel shot out of #1 cylinder.
