Issues after sitting for the winter?
Just purchased a 09 ninja 250r, with 9000 km's on the dial.
When i purchased it today, the owner had it sitting for the winter and took it out about a month ago and rode it for a week. It hadnt been started since. After starting it in front of me for the first time, it started up just fine, but we left it to warm up for a good 10-15 minutes, 20 degrees celcius outside, and everytime we gave it gas it just shut off.
We added some new fresh gas, mind you there was fuel stabilizer in the gas already, and after high revs it seemed to have finally worked .
Now my questions are, is this a symptom of having clogged pilot jets? Maybe a carb cleaning? With 9000 km's and it hasn't had any sort of cleaning at all.
My next question is, when the bike has been sitting and i turn the the key and the ignition to on position, am i suppost to hear a sound of the injectors ? Because i dont, and if i try starting nothing happens, i actually have to turn the throttle a wee bit to get it started. Normal? .. .. Or is there a certain period of time the bike needs to be sitting for in order to hear the sound of the initial injector startup?
Thanks all, i appreciate the help!
