Hey Everyone I am 16 and I started riding not too long ago so still learning everything. I had a new battery placed into my bike not too long ago since I had a dead battery after the bike sat for a long time in the shed. I was riding my bike today and it started fine and went down to a different town I stopped and decided to rev the engine for a bit while waiting for someone I turned the engine off to save some fuel and once I had to start it again it was taking a long time to start I first thought maybe my battery was low so I travelled back to my town which is about 25KM away and shut it off and tried starting it again and it started cranking and wouldn't start the first time I tried again the 2nd time and after a while of cranking it started. I am thinking it might be the spark plugs it has driven almost 8000KM. I am guessing the last owner of this bike hasn't changed the spark plugs since he got it.

Welcome to the forum.

Is there still old gas in the bike?

Just a shot in the dark, but try some fuel injection system cleaner and see if the starting issue improves.

Is there any specific fuel injection cleaner you would recommend?
SeaFoam has been popular in the US, but there should be a bunch of choices at the auto parts store. I think most of them contain Toluene or similar solvents. I guess they all work, never had one in particular I used a bunch.
