Bike Doesn't Want to Start
I have a 2005 zx10r with approx 19k miles on it, i've owned the bike for around 4 years now (maybe 5?) and unfortunately haven't ridden it much the past three years (right when i bought a new sports car lol). last season when i went to start it up it didn't want to start and then I finally got it to run with new fuel / fuel injector cleaner but it was running a bit shit (hesitating and not always wanting to stay running while at idle). It started to ride a bit better as fresh fuel/etc. was worked thru it but shortly after that i broke my only key to the bike and waited until this season to have a locksmith cut me a new key....
Fast Forward and bike wouldn't start ... hesitates a bit and will sputter a few random exhaust mumbles/come to life for a brief split second and then back to not starting.
So I just changed out all four spark plugs this weekend and put a fresh new battery. Still same issue ... I emptied the tank as best I could but some gas was left in there ... my guess is water got in the tank and is in the fuel injectors and I have to just keep trying to start it and get that shit out of the bike, but that is my not so educated guess. When i use starter fluid it runs fine for 10-15 seconds before back to before. It will, too, randomly start for a brief pulse or two ... so i KNOW it is getting fuel + spark + compression at least in moments. my hunch is the fuel injectors/lines got water/gunk in them and i need to flush them out. I added fresh gas to the little bit that was left in it and put fuel injector/gas cleaner in with it.
Any ideas? Is getting the injectors themselves cleaned the next step? Anything else that could be causing the issue?
Side note ... spark plug replacement on these gen1's are a pain in the ass. lol
