1986 Honda XBR500


Sweet ride to own


I need help. The bike was tipped over by a dork who can't park and has since not started. The first time when I started, it started fine with the choke on, and once I put down the choke, it completely died. And haven't been able to restart it since. Any thoughts on fixing it would be much appreciated as I would like to keep the bike.

General Comments:

Other than the mishap with the dork who tipped it and have caused the bike not running, the 4 months I did ride it was great! Although it was an old bike, it would start every time without a problem, and it was great on the road with virtually no issues with fuel efficiency.

I was doing 300km (?) per tank on about AUD$10... Now that's value for money. The motorcycle is good all round, but not ideal for long rides.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
