Wont start from its own power source,only jump or power pac

Postby allkarma » Wed Apr 30, 2014 5:19 pm

This DR 750 is driving me craaaazzy.
The bike turns over and makes a small backfire(after 10-15 attempts ) but wont start , if i connect to a power pac or jump from a car it will start.
I have 2 new fresh batteries so cant be that, also i have a new starter solenoid just fitted. I took it to the bike shop and they are clueless to what the fault could be,i was wondering is they anyone out there with any ideas ?

This is far from an uncommon problem and has happened to me many times
Also, having the choke on makes it turn over more slowly quite often, so try it with little or no choke and see what happens
I just think the spec battery isn`t up to the job and needs a bigger one with more welly.
Things improved for me when I fitted a gel battery.
