    I moved your post to the proper section.

    As far as your bike problem, you'll need more input to get more suggestions. What have you checked and done to it so far?

    Getting spark? fuel? Any water in the tank?

    FI or carb?

    Take a look through this forum and you'll find a lot of things to check.

    Hi Baldybri. Welcome to the forum from the south. I assume your name refers to the fact that you don't like buying new tires?

    Any smell of fuel Baldybri? Are the plugs dry or wet? If it's the ignition failing you'll find fuel in the exhaust.
