Question about 2002 Yamaha Drag Star Four

1 Answer

No start

My bike ran well yesterday until the throttle linkage to the left card fell off. So I fiddle around and reattached the throttl eto the carb. While I was doing this I didn't set the valve to off is it possible that I flooded it? I tried tonight again and still no start. Also, my bike has a battery but no electric start just a kickstart. Would the battery cause the bike not to start? Please help

If it has a vacum petcock you probally didnt flood it. but anythings possible. check for spark,fuel and compression. these are the basics that a engine needs to start.

hi sounds like the main spindle shaft that operates the carbs has seized spray penetrating oil wd40 or similar all over the outside of the carbs giving them a good soaking leave for a good few hours
and gently try and wriggle the throttle cable till it starts to move then spray it some more if this doesnt work remove the carbs and clean them out putting penetrating oil inside the throttle bores
you will probably need to take off the lower fuel bowls and clean them out too if its been standing a long time the fuel avaporates away and your left with a lot of corrosion inside that must be cleaned
out as it will block fuel flow through the carbs

It might just need cleaning. Spray some PB Blaster around the throttle arm where the cable connects to at the base of the carb, and see if that frees up the flaps. And while spraying, fiddle with the throttle linkage.

Can I clean my Maf sensor and throttle body myself on a 2000 pontiac grand prix GTP? What are the steps? Is it necessary on 94,000 miles.


Yes it will help car run better. Take off any hose that goes to card so that you can see down throttle bore. Start car. Grab throttle linkage and figure out how to move it so that you can make the engine go faster. Begine to spray inside throttle body using little red hose that came with carb cleaner. While you are spraying the engine will try to cut out move the throttle linkage to speed up the engine so it won't cut out. Keep spraying all around inside and outside throttle bore.

Scooter Open Throttle (?)


Assuming the bike is not fuel injected, you either have a stuck slide, a throttle cable out of place such that it is lifting the slide or a really bad manifold air leak. Tighten the clamps holding the carb to the cylinder and the bolts holding the manifold to the cylinder. That should eliminate any air leaks. Inspect the throttle cable, especially at the ends where it connects. Remove the air filter and look into the center of the carb. Does the slide in the throat of the carb open and close properly? Below is a generic carburetor. Your carb will be similar.

You need to fix the fueling first - without fuel it won't run!
Your other problem sounds like an air leak - either the manifold or the carb. Check by spraying WD-40 or CRC at the manifold and carb join while the bike is running - if the revs change (either up or down) you have a leak.
