Question about 1993 Yamaha FZR 250 R

1 Answer

Engine clutch mess

I have ayamaha 250 r. I had my brother riding it around about a month ago just fine for a few hours (we had unseasonally warm weather). I tried riding it yesterday (warm temps here we come) however I am running into a problem. The bike started and warmed up fine, at least I think so, but when I went to put it into gear and release the clutch it immediately dies no matter how high I rev it or how slowly/quicly I start releasing the clutch, it kills the engine immediately. It restarts with no problem. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks for your time

Check your kick stand sensor if it's unplugged then there is your problem. If it's still plugged in then the sensor might be gone. The sensor shuts the bike down if you try to take off when the kick stand is down. you can bypass the sensor by jumping the two wires before the sensor with a piece of wire connecting the two leads together. doing so will allow the bike to be put into gear with the kick stand down so always check it so you won't have an accident. good luck and get out ridding!

Clutch not working


Hi Inge, not to worry steel plates got a little rust film from sitting probably. Let the bike warm up for a few minutes then do the push,run, jump on the seat routine while in nuetral and drop it in 1st gear and drive it around for a while the plates will eventually break free and peace on earth and good will to all mankind will prevail. Try using 20w50 Harley Davidson SYN 3 in the primary and next winter don't put the bike in storage with the engine hot. Wait untill the next day and fire it up drop it in gear for 30 seconds then put it away for winter storage. Good luck

2002 YZ250 1ST GEAR PROBLEM ?? WILL NOT SELECT 1ST FROM THE OFF YOU HAVE TO TAKE OFF IN 2ND BUT ONCE RIDING WILL DROP DOWN IN TO 1ST


Maybe not your answer but.If the bike has sat around for a while,the clutch plates can stick together.Not all,but some.This makes gear selection hard and as you describe,once things warm up,it gets better.When I said about sitting around,I meant for a period of a few months or so at one time.Hope this helps

If the bike is in good running order you should be able to drive it every day form dusk to dawn. 10-12 hour rides should be no trouble what so ever. If the motorcycle has been sitting and not run for a few months and your intention is to hop on and ride it six hours to your house, you may want to consider either trailering it home or taking it for a couple of short drives just to verify it is running properly before attempting the long drive home.

I put the bike in gear but when i pull the clutch lever in, it wont disengage and stays in gear??


if the clutch lever feels it has plenty of tension, it may just be the clutch plates stuck together from sitting.

Roll start it and ride around while holding in the clutch, vary the throttle, and they usually unstick. Give it an oil change when it warms up.

I wonder if the clutch "basket" broke off an "ear"?...I hate to say it,..but you might be in for a tear down and rebuild. Start with the parts you can access, clean/fix/replace with motor still in bike..eg; clutch plates/basket, "properly" fix the kickstarter spring/gear unit,...try to find thae cause of the metal filings,..check the clutch basket..etc. GL. [re-post with what's going on].

Well i would say the clutches have sat dry to long. You may change the oil and it solve the problem but more than likely new clutch discs.

Problems getting the bike moving


Have you had the clutch checked? Cause that's where it sounds like the problem is. My HD tried that same ****,adjusted the clutch,fine for a while,then it happened again. Turned out my clutch cable was popping loose in the hand-lever one wire at a time. Repaired that and no probs since.
So, I'd check the cable first and if it's good I'd have the clutch plates etc. checked. Good luck.
