How to Start a Motorcycle When Battery is Down?

Jump Start
Jump start is a starting system which is used to start the engine of an automobile that has a weak battery by connecting good battery to the dead battery using a pair of jumper cables. Usually car battery is used for jump starting a motorcycle.

Jump Start

While jump start is done, remember to turn off all electrical loads and to keep a distance between both vehicles so that they dont touch each other. And gear must be in neutral position. Make sure that cables are away from the moving objects. Red cable is suppose to be positive and Black to be negative.



Turn off both vehicles and connect the red clamp to the positive terminal of the motorcycle battery. Then connect the other end of the red clamp to the positive terminal of the car battery. Now, connect the black clamp to the negative terminal of the motorcycle battery. Then connect the other end of the black clamp to the negative terminal of the car battery. Make sure that claps dont touch any other metallic substances. Leave the car turned off and start the two wheeler. The bike is supposed to be started within 30 seconds. Warm the motorcycle for a few while by accelerating the throttle. Alas, disconnect the jumper cables in the reverse order.

Push Start
Push start is the simplest form of igniting the motorcycles engine. But, here some hard work and physical culture are needed.

Push Start

Put the gear liver either in 1st or 2nd position. Applying the clutch, push the motorcycle to a little distance and suddenly release the clutch and accelerate the throttle simultaneously, the bike would be started. Make sure the bike has attained a minimum speed before releasing the clutch.
