Question about 2008 Yamaha XT250

1 Answer

I have a Yamaha 1980 xt 250 that runs but no lights, any ideas? All the wiring seems to be there. Help please.

The battery needs to be replaced, but I did not think that it mattered. I want to go riding with my son that is six, but I need to fix this problem. All the wiring seems to be there and no missed connections, but someone could point me a direction to start I would be very grateful. Thank You for your time.

Hi, Ryan for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

SOURCE: how do you bypass the wiring for a 1980 yamaha 250

Generally for old bikes, removal of any loom connections in FRONT of ignition coil will do it. But beware. you have no way of turning the bike off except swift removal off the plug lead. High rev use will also damage rectifier/regulator and cdi units as correct source coils have been wrongly circuited with no lights.

SOURCE: how do i set cam position and timing on an old yamaha xt 500

You didn't say WHY the cam / valve timing needs to be reset. For some reason I get the feeling someone told you that resetting was needed and so you are asking how. Obviously, you may have installed new pistons and that is why the resetting is needed. In either event, when the cam timing is set the valve timing is also set. Other than adjusting valve lash, setting the cam sets the valve timing. Below is a web site where you can do a free download of a factory service manual. The process is not hard but having a manual will be more help and faster help than I can give online.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your reply. I've been to the web site before and downloaded the manual already. It does not really cover the situation I have. There also seems to be a lack of compression with the bike. A friend has lent me a workshop manual so I will try that in the mean time. Thanks again "

2013 yamaha xt 250 tail light running light turn signal not working


Hi, Louis tail light issues are relatively easy to diagnose and repair always check the tail light fuse first and make sure you have power on both sides of the fuse holder and the usual suspects are:
1. Tail light bulb element is broken.
2. Tail light bulb soldered contacts are extremely worn down.
3. Tail light bulb socket corroded.
4. Tail light bulb socket has no power and or ground.
5. Tail light wiring harness damaged from the rear tire.
6. Tail light rear fender wiring harness connector faulty due to corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.

The bike cut out and then will not start again. it seems to be a problem with the electrics, when i turn the ignition nothing lights up on the digital display. i have charged the battery but still nothing...


Hi, Tom_f_03 before testing any electrical component in the Starter Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, especially "AGM" batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

I have an older 250 xt 1980's but cannot find out what year as the serial is not 17 digits (3Y2 000175)


Hi
Did some extensive searching for you. You may need to call an old school Yamaha mechanic to pull that one up for you. Tpo give you an idea of what was being produced back then, found this list ...
XT 250 G 80-81 3Y3,5g4
XT 250 G 80 3Y4
XT 250 H 81 3Y1
XT 250 J 82 15Y
XT 250 J 82 3Y1
XT 250 J 82 3Y4
XT 250 K 83 3Y1
3y2 does not appear anywhere. But the series of number indicated for the XT250 above point it to probably being an XT built between 1980, and 1983. Best I could find. Hope it helps
