Why does my 2016 Indian Chief Dark Horse start while in neutral and kickstand down?

Perhaps someone has disabled it. All engines should be started in neutral, because a sticky clutch will have in motion by surprise. The kickstand thing is a safety feature as well, so you don't get to the first corner and the kickstand throws you off.

The engine should NEVER start in any gear except neutral if the sidestand is down. If the engine starts during this test, see your dealer for service.

I have a Suzuki tl 1000 s one cylinder running colder and killing plugs and back firing what must i look for.

It sounds like a fuel problem injector is stuck fully open.I would tap each exhaust as its running to see which one is coldest ,then swap the injectors over and see.if that changes what cylinder is running if it does then it's the injector if not you have a different problem but still injector related.

Hi, my son has an electric razor quad bike with two 6 volt batteries. We have just replaced both batteries and the full charge light shows when you switch it on but it still wont start up. Can you...

The batteries should be 2 x 12v giving an output of 24v anything less than this the Razor Dirt Quad will not run. always make sure you buy genuine Razor replacement batteries.

hi had the exaclty same problem with my 600 and still having it next time it happens have the allen key to take of the rear seat i found with mine i had a loose connection to battery or a faulty link thought it was battery low for a while till i tried this i moved the live connection to the battery while i had the bike on ready to go ie kill switch on and key turned to on like that would go dead when i flicked the kill but when i moved the live connection it started if this is the case then have a screwdriver with you also to tighten the nuts to the battery this happened me a few times then the bike started perfectly was bloody odd and am glad i know how to fix it again but if it keeps going on then im gonna change the battery first then maybe the connectors also i think mine was linked in with an fi which to be honest is a whole other situation but please try the battery live feed connection hope this works for ya

When I try to start my bike, it appears that the engine is not being primed. Cannot here the pump running.

This could be a number of things - the power is interlocked by the neutral switch/side stand relay - bike must be in neutral OR the sidestand must be up in order to get power to the fuel pump relay.

Things to check:
Fuses for ignition and fuel pump
sidestand up &/or bike in neutral (neutral light displayed)
kill/run switch in 'run'
sidestand relay
fuel pump relay
