Does air intake passage blockage causes starting problem in a motorcycle?
after driving about 3 km my new hornet bike suddenly stopped as if the fuel is over.. it was not getting started after many attempts (self and kick-start).battery was fine.. finaly i noticed a plastic cover in which i placed bike documents was completely covering the air intake pipe which is placed below the seat..can this cause something like air lock and starting problem??..i am poor about bike mechanical things.. kindly help in this regard

Yes, air filter or intake passage blockage definitely cause starting problem and can also stops running engine, so it seems that air intake of your Hornet 160R might have blocked by document cover.
