Question about 1996 Yamaha FZR 1000

1 Answer

Stating pro My yamaha FZR 1000 has been giving me starting problems, and I have no idea why. I check the ignition coils, wires, all seem to show the right resistances as in the manual. The spark p;ug cap resistances are also fine. I put in new plugs, and get a good spark. Carbs were just cleaned and rebuilt, and gas flows into the carb bowls. I try giving it the choke, but it doesnt start. I thought the starter motor might be slipping, but I feel the blast of air coming out when the plugs are out? So what could be the problem here?? Any suggestions??

I hate to tell you this but, if the bike sat for a year with gas in it after the carb work, it'll likely need another carb cleaning. Crying or Very sad Over time, gas in the carbs turns to varnish and gum which clogs up the passages. What makes you think the starter is not working right, Kar? Does it sound funny, or what? About the compression test, you'll need a compression gauge - most automotive parts retailers have them. It's a small gauge with a flexible hose that you screw into the spark plug hole.

If you have changed your ignition coils then I think your problem is best tackled by your bike dealership. This seems to be a growing problem. My suggestion would have been to check the consistency of the primary and secondary loops of the ignition coils.

sounds to me that it could be a faulty wire....it may not be grounded right. follow the negative wire from the battery.check it and make sure the insulation is not cut anywhere.check that the wire on top of the starter is good and tight also.
