And it is brand new only 75 miles on it when i got it. At the 600 mile mark i did the valve adjustment and changed the oil, after another 100-150 miles, the normal ticking that you get from the motor started getting louder. I checked the adjustment on the valves again, they were good to go, and after another 50 miles or so i changed the oil again to make sure there were no metal flakes in the oil, which there werent. Do the 250's just get a little noisier as tehy break in? It seems to me its coming from the bottom end. It has automatic cam chain tensioners, so i dont think its that, and i have checked to make sure everything is tight like it should be. The ticking does go along with engine speed, and at 55-60 mph you can just barely hear it over the wind and road noise. I have worked on cars for several years, and i know some engines are just normally loud or ticky, but this is my first bike that i have ever really messed with. This normal for this bike? ,i had a 82 yamaha 650 and with 40,000 miles it was the quitest bike i ever had. i realize that doesnt really compare to ur bike but i wouldnt expect an engine to be louder after that few a miles. i would really suggest finding a forum especially for your bike (theres bound to be one) and asking around, its really a bike to bike difference ,,,

Loud tick noise in crankcase.


Thanks for the background info. With all the work that has been done and the good readings I can suggest a few possibilities.
  1. A broken gear tooth, (highly likely if the "tick" is not present in all gears).
  2. Broken gear tooth on the clutch hub, (highly likely if the "tick" is present in all gears).
  3. Wrong heat range on the spark plug causing detonation.
Set the air screw and pilot screw back to factory settings > turn each inward until LIGHTLY seated. Now open each of them one and one-half turns. The stock jetting should be okay.

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"..

Fuel injector 450 xc


fills with gas then stops. The Bike doesn't start and the injector just doesn't make anymore noise isn't it suppose to be going continuously? if so then wat can i do to fix this problem ?,The fuel pump primes for a few seconds and then shuts off until the bike starts. What you are describing sounds normal. If your filter is filling with gas you may have a dirty fuel filter, or the orings in the quick disconnect may be blocking the fuel on either side of the tank. One of my friends had a oring blocking the return line and it ended up taking out his pump. Make sure you have a good stream of fuel returning to the tank, if so there is no blockage. ,,,

Clunking nois


there is a loud non-rythmic crunching/clunking noise. I suspected it would be either the clutch or transmission but I removed the oilpan and visually checked the transmission and oil pump and have completely disassembled the clutch, and none of these areas has any signs of malfunction. I also checked the chain/sprockets and nothing seems to be wrong there. Any ideas? The problem arose after a 600 mile road trip I took, which was the first long trip I had taken on the bike. I had used it for commuting for a few months prior to that. The first to second gear shift had gotten progressively more rough, to the point that sometimes it would not shift until I tried several times. I figured the transmission was having problems (this was my first bike so I had to learn now to use a clutch and not shift roughly), but it passed my visual inspection. The noise sounds as though there is a lose part that is getting tossed around inside the engine by a part that rotates with the engine rpm''s. If anybody has any ideas I would really appreciate it!,Cam Chain, Cam Bearings? Cam chain tensioner? these are likely suspects.,,,
