Move a Motorcycle Without Starting It

By Walter F. Kern

Turn ON the Ignition

Turn on the ignition by inserting the key and turning it to the ignition position. Other terms may be used. Usually, the headlight of the motorcycle comes on to indicate that you have been successful in turning on the ignition.

The ignition can be located many places on the motorcycle. If you can't find it, consult your owner's manual. Otherwise, keep looking. The picture shows an ignition located on the left side of the motorcycle just below the gas tank.
