Bike wont start when hot

Is this usually a starter problem when the bike wont start when HOT?? even when I wide open the throttle it still wont start. Only if I accidentally stall the bike, it will be able to start it back up with a slight throttle.

If I let it sit until it has cooled it will start no problem(always with a slight throttle twist).

dirty starter? clogged carbs? valve?

i have checked the battery,
12.94 when stationary,
12.33 idling,
13.6-7, max 13.9 when going over 5000rpm.

so a bad battery or rectifier is out of the question

i have no idea whats wrong..

Re: Bike wont start when hot

Even though the battery is fully charged it could be a bad battery just a thought. I am having a problem with mine starting and i think it is the battery i hope at least

i just did coolant flush last week with engine-ice. it should still start even at 224F, it never goes higher than that.

Re: Bike wont start when hot

if it spins over fine?

when were your valve clearences last checked?

long shot i know and the last thing to look at but if the clearances are a bit tight cold, when hot it can hold the valves open and make starting a pig.


hope this helps
