Cracked rbs and a broken big toe. Well I settled with insurance and bought another bike exactly like the first. The problem I have is that when I ride in curves I start freezing up and have a full blown anxiety attack to the point that I have to stop. I am taking the Motorcycle Safety course next weekend and am hoping that it will help but if any one has any suggestions I would apprieciate them. I live in the Blue Ridge mountains so curvy roads and mountains are something I am going to have to deal with will riding. I know the that Im suppose to psh and pull but Im afraid that the motorcycle in going to lean to far and Im going to crash.PLEASE HELPI'd hazard a guess fear is making you look down. Keep your eyes UP. Look where you want to go - and I mean where you want to go a ways down the road. A great deal of the rest of the technique flows from good eye discipline. It's the quickest way I know to break the fear - freeze cycle.,

As this point you can't get the bike to turn over is this correct? If the engine is turning over but won't start then yes the gas is most likely the problem. Gas after sitting for even a month can evaporate from the fuel system and it leave a fouls smelling deposit behind that clogs up everything. It stinks and it's a mess to clean out. To prevent this from happening use a product that is called "Fuel Stabilizer" in the last few tanks of gas before you put the bike away for the winter or a dormant period. If the motorcycle is in a hot climate or heated garage this foul smelling gas can happen within a few weeks.

Lifter noise

Could be that the bike has been ridden a little hard; could be dirty oil. Put a cleaning additive in your oil, idle bike for 10 - 15 min drain oil replace filter, add new oil - good stuff- and see if they quiet down.

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"..

Will not fire

When you turn the key, do all of the little lights on the tach light up and stay lit before you try the starter ? I ask because my key-switch has become a little fickle this year. Sometimes when I turn the key, I can hear the electronics going through the pre-start sequence, but, only one little light on the tach comes on, and then I know that it's gonna act up a little. When that occurs, the engine will crank but will not start. Have to turn back the key and do a little jiggle and wiggle of the key on the tumblers while turning the key to get everything working
