View Full Version : What is wrong here?

I just rec'd the 2005 Mojito 150, put gas in it, charged the battery, and it still won't start. The guys are puzzled. They've read the manual, followed the instructions etc. There has got to be something simple here. Do appreciate any input. :bangwall:

Didn't your dealer do the prep? It should have been delivered to you in an operational condition as per their dealer agreement with the manufacturer.
Battery charged for 24hrs.
All switches in "on" position.
Hold in brake lever.
If the bike has never run before it may take awhile to get the gas flowing.
These are all basics. We would need more info to help out. What have you tried?
Did you check for gas?
Did you check for spark?
If you have both, maybe a quick shot of starting fluid to get to run and prime itself.

Any luck getting your Mojito to start? Mine wouldn't start at first either because the battery was not charged. The dealer I bought it from didn't bother to prep it after it had been sitting for awhile and it barely had any gas in it. I got mine from a motorcycle dealership and I don't think they gave a hoot about my purchase. I've been riding every day to get the battery happy but it's been hard in the pouring rain we've had for 3 days. It is so fun to ride. I would call the dealership today if you have still not been able to start it. Good luck! :rolleyes:

Today I called the dealer (who is 300 miles away) who put me in touch with the serivce dept. & he said to give the battery a hard charge and it should start. Husband (thought old charger was ineffective) bought a new charger tonight so will see what happens tomorrow. According to the paperwork the dealer did all the prep work before he shipped it. Between husband and son who are both mechanically knowleagble this should't be such a head ache but it's turning into one. Thank you for your guidance. I hope to hear a Vroom soon.

We have Ignition! The replacement 2 amp battery charger was the answer. Kid came home after basketball practice,put the battery in place, and the next thing I know he's driving around the neighborhood. Tomorrow night I will take it for a drive. :peace:
