    2005 TW200 wont kick over, need advice

    Been having a lot of "fun" trying to get my 2005 Tw200 started.

    I have a video of me trying to start it


    5558miles

    Replaced the coil and spark plug
    Checked spark (bright white)
    Checked relay assembly (checked it on another bike)
    Checked rectifier (checked it on another bike)
    Checked fuel
    Checked oil
    Checked solenoid
    Checked fuses
    Cleaned carburetor 5 times and checked it on another bike and works
    Battery charged and using a car battery to give additional power

    Kickstand sensor was spliced together might be the issue?

    CDI gives spark but may be bad?

    Choke doesn't seem to change anything either, sometimes backfires


    No idea why it's not kicking over to start

    If anyone has any idea what it could be please let me know.


    Other bike I tested the stuff on was a Kawasaki Eliminator 125cc , everything from the TW worked fine on it as well

    Welcome to the forum!!

    Usually when the choke doesn't work as it should, it's a strong indicator that the pilot jet isn't clean enough or is still clogged up.

    Check valve clearances, might be tight.

    Remove the sparkplug and squirt a little gas into the cylinder, replace the plug, and then see if it will fire.

    Try a snort of starting fluid, This will rule out spark and timing or Carb issue.
    Maybe your intake boot is torn and sucking air NOT getting to carb,
    What temp in garage?
    I see petcock on "on" How much gas? Try it in "Res" ?

    thanks, been using all the forums on trying to fix mine and to no avail finally decided to just ask for some help

    Cleaned the carb 5 times and made sure its clean, used a wire to make sure as well with the help of carb cleaner and even wd40. my other bike also started and ran with it so i doubt its a carb problem anymore but still suspicious of it.

    did not check it yet, also didn't think that could be an issue to cause a no start situation

    If they are tight, you will lose compression. It may push start if you can get the revs up a bit higher if the valves are slightly open. I wouldn't of thought this is the issue with the Km's showing on your odometer but you have checked all the other stuff...

    The Petcock lets a lot of fuel out which I've figured out since the first few times I forgot to close it and was smothered in gassy hands, tried it in res as well.

    the intake boot is fine, no cracks or anything distinguishable, took it off to make sure.

    I tried starting fluid from the filter end off and got some pretty nice fire (not starting just a fire) I also tried putting starting fluid, carb cleaner and gas into the cylinder and nothing changed except a very loud backfire sometimes. Without trying those too I get gas into the cylinder since I can smell it in and on the spark plug, tried messing with the fuel/air mixture valve to flood the cylinder and it did so I'm very certain fuel is getting into it.

    I'm not sure about timing yet

    Temperature is around air temp 30f to 40f its not ideal temps but it is winter (Philadelphia)
