I'm in the process of making one good CBR from two not so good models. (1987 & 1989) A couple days of work later and suspension/swingarm/forks/brakes/cooling system etc has been put on the road worthy bike. Now it's time to make it run. After finding a leaky petcock I'm waiting on a part to arrive but I'm not ready to quit working on the bike. 2 questions: can I bypass the fuel pump/tank on this and gravity feed it fuel? Will the kill switch stop the starter from turning the engine over? Turning it on or off had no effect on the starter cranking cranking the engine. None of my other bikes are like this- kill switch off-no cranking. I'm wondering if there might be an electrical issue to address there.. I haven't confirmed it has spark yet. Next on the list. The starter turned the engine over no problem but I didn't hear any popping or sounds like it was about to return to life. Thanks!
