  • 2000 carb'd RS 1600 no start

    So I recently bought a 2000 RS 1600 with BUB stage 1 pipes my first non harley and first carb engine. I test rode it, and it was fine. Rode it a couple days and fine but then a little sluggish. I go downstairs one morning to start it up and nothing. Lights and everything come on battery is fine no crank or clicking noise, no sound at all. Ive replaced the spark plugs, tip sensor is bypassed, replaced the ignition switch and still nothing. Any ideas? Appreciate the help guys.

    check the starter relay under the side cover. it is a very common issue for a no start.

      I had it tested and fully charged at the auto parts store so the battery is good

    Pull your Starter and clean it out . Don't forget to add a tiny bit of grease to the shaft tips.

      I'm thinking maybe it's an issue with the fuel pump. Going to go test the relay with my multimeter

        does the fuel pump make a clicking sound when to turn the key on after sitting over night? The easiest way to know if it is a fuel issue is to spray a little starting fluid into the carb and see if it fires up. If it does then trace down the reason for no fuel.

        I think its a problem either with the fuel pump or FP relay. Cant hear it prime when starting

          Pull the fuel line off the carb and try to run some in a can or bottle. The only time I hear mine run is when I've had the tank off and forget to turn the gas back on.

            I just re-read your original post and you said it won't crank over. Is that still the situation?

              right now the engine is cranking but wont fire

          • #11
            spray a little starting fluid in the carb to see if it starts. if it does then you have a fuel issue. run a fuel line from the tank valve straight to the carb ,that will bypass the pump . If that take care of the issue then you have a bad pump. at that point you can decide to replace the pump or do the mods to go pumpless

              Greetings from Houston, did the problem end up being the fuel pump? I’m having a similar issue with my 02’ road star. I have a good starter solenoid, full battery, fuel switch on, it starter and engine cranks but won’t turn over to start and run. I did one or two pops/backfired but that’s all I got. I’m wondering if I have either a flooded engine or bad fuel pump.

                Man has not been back since Oct. Best start your own new thread.

              “Now I go to start and the engine is cranking but wont turn over...”

              “engine cranks but won’t turn over to start and run.”



              Cranks and turns over have the same meaning. The starter is spinning the engine.

              Starts means internal combustion has taken over and the engine running.

              This gets confusing as to what the diagnosis should be.

                I stand corrected, yes the starter is spinning but internal combustion is not happening aside from a backfire pop. And yes I suppose I should start my own thread for this question. Thanks for the help guys ✌
