How to jump start a motorcycle

Have you ever experienced a situation where a motorcycle cannot be started after being parked for too long? How should we solve it? There are three ways to help you.

Push-start a motorcycle

Understanding how to push-start a motorcycle is a great skill to have, but this method should be used only if the previous jump-starting options aren’t possible. So if needed, here’s how to do it:

Find a clear stretch of road or, ideally, a hill for the added momentum.

Put your bike into second gear (first gear can at times come on too strong, causing the bike to jerk forward).

Start pushing the bike, while running alongside, until you get up to at least 5 mph.

Hop on the bike once you’re up to speed and immediately drop the clutch and push the starter.

When your engine starts running, pull in the clutch and apply some gas.

Continue riding your motorcycle for 15 to 30 minutes to recharge the battery.
