Hi guys,

I have a bit of a problem with a 950 SE. The bike stayed in a garage for some long time (more than 6 month) without running at all and now, there are two issues:

1. I can start it once and after that the starter relay just makes noises but engine will not start until I charge the battery again....

2. I can start the bike with the choke at 1/2 but when I am trying to close the choke (to idle position) it stalls.

Please give me some inputs if you run into this specific behaviors.

Thanks!

Yes that is the tire. No problems.

Sounds like you might need a new battery.

Agree with the battery solution, but what about the other issue. To add some info: when I try to give it some gas after I started it with the choke, it stalls also...

Add some SeaFoam to the gas tank and let it run for a while.

I'm running the Mefo Super Explorer 150/70-18"
No problems at all, but as mentioned - the narrower rims handles much better offroad.

You have to let it warm up. The carbs are picky. May want to get new gas in it. Also, get new battery.

950 SE floods when going through woops

My 950 SE starts flooding out when I go through a bunch of woops. If I stop the bike dies and I can smell gas. Anyone else have this problem and what was the fix?

Does it have a stock fuel pump or something with higher pressure? Have you checked float height?

Flooding

Mine did the same with the stock fuel pump, floats in spec. Stopped when my stock pump quit and went with to vacuum fuel pump.

Have you bypassed the sidestand switch ?It can kill the bike in whoops and mask as a fueling problem.

Riding my SE yesterday(29000 km) she suddenly started missing terribly and backfiring at any revs with no power! I still on the stock fuel pump...is that the likely problem,she was recently serviced with new plugs etc

Did you smell sulfur (rotten eggs) at the same time? If so, your voltage regulator may be going. When my fuel pump went, it was more like I just ran out of gas...the engine died immediately, and it would not restart. When you turn the key on, can you hear the fuel pump cycling?
