Hi this an update on the problem on a 2012 street triple I changed the plugs to iridium bike starts and runs fine engine malfunction light stays on. Very careful about pulling leads and fittings.

if the dealer managed to get the light off after working on the bike , I would be inclined to go back there to see if the problem is connected or if there is another fault putting the light on

Liquid leaked out know fridge isnt working. model dcb412bls

When you say liquid, are you meaning an oily substance or water. Since it isn't working, I have to assume oily substance which could mean either the cap or freon. If it is the capactor that has blown up then it is worth changing (change the contactor at the same time). If it is the compressor leaking freon, then it is usally not cost effective to change out and recharge the system and would take a professional to do.

So i was wondering i changed the spark plug on my bike including all oils, also included a costume yamaha fuel filter bike started fine rode it. Than second time i started it i forgot to turn gas line...

hi, the problem is that your bike is running to rich( to much fuel from carb to engine) so its the un-burned fuel mix that your seeing on your plug and thats fouling it this is caused by either to rich of fuel mixture(you should be mixing 32:1) or you need to rejet carb so it delivers less fuel to engine... your carb has a jet in it and the # is stamped on it ( if you take the carb off and remove the bowl( 4 screws) you will see it,it will have an octagon shaped head.) for example if the # on it is 55 then you need to go with a 53 or 54...... also a good sign you need to rejet with a smaller jet is your bike will spooge(leak) a black oily residue from exhaust pipe and muffler( same residue thats fouling the spark plug.)

1994 Kawasaki ZZR-400 Leaks oil and doesnt start sometimes.

that box is called the air box, its where you engine breathes in its air. you say its leaking oil? these boxes are normally a bit oily but only really surface oil. If you can actually see liquid oil you have a problem with your petrol shut off. When the bike isnt running petrol will leak into the engine through the piston. When you start the bike all the petrol mixed with the engine oil will be pumped back into the air box. also check the level of the engine oil, if too much has been put in there then that can also be pumped back into the air box. If the petrol and oil has been mixing you must change the oil as petrol thins the oil and your bike could catch fire, the engine wear will be really bad.

1997 geo metro died while driving.

I had a similar problem with my 1987 ford escort. In this case I knew before hand what was going to happen. My water pump was going bad and loosened up the timing belt enough for belt to slip. Once that timing belt moves in position then things run bad and finally quit as mine did.

I am guessing this is the case for you also. I have changed out 3 timing belts on different escorts now, the first took about 2 days but the last took about 15 mins. The belt in my case only cost about 30 dollars.

Hope this helps

2003 YZ 250 Oil Change

Use 10w40 in the gearbox. Get the oil from your Yamaha dealer along with any filter your bike may need. Some bikes use an oil change as the "filter". To drain oil, get the engine warmed up and turn it off. Put a pan under the gearbox and remove the oil drain plug. Replace the oil plug when the flow becomes a slow drip. Change oil in late spring, the middle of summer and in early fall. Remember to lube the chain and adjust it when needed. Lubricate the cables with liquid graphite. Lastly, install a stock spark plug. Now go for a ride.

Please rate this solution as a "FixYa" if I have answered your questions. Thanks!
