SOURCE: my yamaha blaster will start and idle once i press

Your mid and or hi speed jets are plugged. Drain the fuel (tank and carb). Dissmantle the carb, remove the jets and clean them. (Or soak the in carb cleaner over night).

Fuel turns to varnish in just a few months.

good luck

SOURCE: Yamaha 660 raptor dies when choke is tuned off

hello I am Vortash .. I would say your problem is either blocked idler jets or incorrect fuel mixture ( Air to fuel not correct ) take the bike to your local garage to use their air line unless you have a compressor of your own remove the fuel feed tank side and blow it through with the airline if this don't cure it you will probably need to have the carbs tuned to manufacturesr spec's , If you are more mechanicaly minded strip the idler jets out pass a fine strip of wire through them and replace .You can also get this problem if you have an air leak on the maniflod or the carb bowl etc hope this helps regards Vortash

SOURCE: Yamaha TW 200 starts but won't run.

If the bike has sat for a long period of time without being run - the gas that is sitting in the carb(s) will shellac.. Then the carb(s) would need to be cleaned and "rebuilt"..

1998 Yamaha Kodiak 4x4. Why doesn't it start?


Do it start on choke only and will not run when choke is off. carb need to be dip and soaked in carb cleaner , Note Completely apart no rubber or gasket in this solution. Blown out after 4 or five hours of soaking and reassembled.

Why does my ATV bog down and die when I keep the throttle wide open?


If you are lucky, you might just need new fuel filter and the fuel bowl cleaned out, and maybe new air filter. If not so lucky you need carburetor rebuilt. Backfire is usaully caused by engine running too lean ( too much air for the amount of fuel present). Fuel bowls get gunk in them and the fuel needles and fuel jets get varnished up. The accelerator pump gets worn out gaskets and/or bellows and doesn't give the right amount of fuel mist when you accelerate.

Full Choke is indicative of a motor starved for fuel

Why does my yamaha 660 only run if the choke is on? What causes it to backfire?


Most of the time it's because the Pilot/Idle jet is clogged in the carburetor. This most often happens because of old fuel sitting in the carburetor during long periods of sitting and non-use. The fuel forms a varnish - a gummy layer inside of your carburetor and clogs the tiny holes in the idle jet. Since fuel can't get through, the engine dies. The hole for the choke is larger, therefore the fuel can still get through it.

Kodiak wont start


Run a compression test (3-5 seconds) , with throttle closed, then repeat with throttle open. Should be around 100 psi closed and 125+ with it open. This will give you more direction.
