    Default Starting engine w no fuel. Potential dmgs



    Best i can do to shorten the story...

    I just bought a bike today, honda nsr sp. Rode on with a spoilt fuel gauge (unknowingly) so actually had the bike died on me enroute home.

    At this point i kick start multiple times before realising that tank was empty.

    Aft filling the tank full, i am unable to start the engine via kick starting at all. I can only start via push start.

    I am assuming the battery is gone (pls do correct me if im wrong). Wanted to ask what kind of dmg could i possibly had caused to the bike esp by trying to start the engine multiple times on empty tank.

    Thanks!

    Get your bike repaired. Electrical system (battery + rectifier) either one is faulty. That, or the spark plug is old and fouled up.

    There's no fuel to begin with, so no combustion, no movement, no wear and tear damage to be worried about.
