hi i own a 1998 zx6r g1 thats done 22000 miles, i went out to the bike today and tried starting it, it turns over but wont do anything else. i have put more fuel in it and charged the battery but it does not seem to want to fire. does anyone have any ideas what this could be?

Thanks

Get a timing light and check each plug wire for spark.

Pull each plug and make sure they are not fouled.

If you crank it a while and it doesn't start, pull the spark plugs abnd check for wet fuel. If they are dry, you are not pulling gas

thanks for the replies will do that after xmas i think! i eventally got it to start by opening and closing the throttle whilst cranking, not quite sure if this helped but opening it fully and cranking didnt help! once it started it would stop/start fine once up to temperature!
