Question about 2002 Yamaha YZF 600 R thunder cat
Has 91 octane full of fuel. Changed fuel filter and plugs after issue. No issues ever. 12k for miles. Well taken care of.
Hi, Sandmanaz and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle circuit and transfer ports clogged.
2. Air fuel mixture adjustment too lean.
3. Pilot jet clogged.
4. Faulty accelerator pump.
5. Float level too low.
6. Float bowl contaminated old fuel, water, dirt, rust, etc.
7. Float bowl vent or overflow tube clogged.
8. Fuel flow to carburetor restricted.
9. Intake manifold leak.
10. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
11. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
12. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.

try some Berrymans B12 fuel additive in the tank. if your bike has been in storage it could be gummed up a bit. put in a little more than stated dose, no more than double, run it let it get hot and then let it stand overnight. it worked for me on my v star

Sometimes it is hard to tell at low speeds if the fuel mix is too lean or if it is too rich. Simple to work at though. Let's say the mix is too lean. Remove the slide from the throat of the carb then move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. This richens the low end mix. Try it out. If it is better then try another notch. Choose which is best.
Now lets say the original mix is too rich. Remove the slide from the throat of the carb then move the clip on the jet needle up one notch from the original clip position. This leans the low end mix. Try it out. If it is better then try another notch. Choose which is best.
Pleas rate this solution. Thanks r_vietzke09!

Yes It Would Its A Higher Octane And Much More Clean, But You Should Get Your Fuel Line To See If It Has A Kink In It That Could Be The Problem As Well But Im Sure Its The Fuel
