Question about 1986 Yamaha RD 350

Killing Problem

My bike has never done this in the past, but the past couple days has been hell. When I'm pulling up to or stopped at a light or sign my bike has been dying. Normally it's right when I pull the clutch in or while it's sitting in neutral. This last time my oil light came on when it died. Anyone else have this problem? Should I be paranoid? Should I stop riding it and take it to the shop? I have cored pipes disabled flapper and map 2. could any of these be the problem?

Unfortunatly the 04 and up use electronic idle controll. Does your bike have the latest map? Mine is an earlyer modle of 04 which was bad for stalling at a light untill the right map for the ecu came out to cure that problem/.

2010 corolla wont crank and start


Sounds like your ECM / ECU may need to be re-flashed at the dealer, have you tried pulling the codes? The check engine light does NOT need to be on for it to have codes stored. The starting issue could be caused by the TPS / MAF / MAP sensors, the flashing of the odometer could be something with your PSOM chip or your VSS sensor. Pull the codes see what you get.

2007 lexus 460ls battery goes dead if not driven for 2 days. what is wrong??


something is turned on and killing the battery. Check the trunk light....(does it really go out when the lid is closed?. Take the bulb (s) out and see if that makes a difference....also if you have one on the hood lid....do the same thing...and pull out the cig lighter too...and also the bulb in the glove box. Something that is NOT on your accessories power is staying on.

All indicator lights stopped working


there will be a relay for indicators on your bike usually under seat compartments , and also water may have got into the switch for your indicators . check also that the globes aren't blown . these things happen .

Printed fine, ran out of black ink, replaced cartridge same day, now won't print black very well. Tried another new black cartridge, Ran "cleaner" routine about 10 times - same problem, - sucked ink out...


That really sucks! Nice printer, though. I really like mine.
My past experiences w/ brother printers say leave it alone for a day or two. I've done cleaning cycles to no avail. Then, a couple of days later, the gravity has done its magic! Probably doesn't sound like much of a solution, but it is based on my experience.

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"..

Bike starts fine with the choke and will idle without it when warmed up. However, when I twist the throttle the engine dies. I have just had a bunch of work done with an independent shop, including...


hmmm, a few posibilities, might well be split cab diaphragms but overhaul should have spotted that. sounds like either too much gas or not enough, either flooding/gassing up or fuel starvation. could try running it without the aire filter too see what happens. it should run weak so if bike is better then you have too much gas, if bike worse then runnig weak to start with. I have seen this before with one particular cause.... petrol tap was leaking, gas runs past pistons when bike not running, soaks past and into crankcases. as breather recycles vapour back in to air box, when bike warm it's as rich sas hell. take of oil filler cap on engine and have a good sniff. you should smell only oil, if it's a strong smell of petrol, change oil and filter, dump petrol tap or see if new seals available.

I was wandering if I need to replace my clutch.


Have you tried adjusting your clutch cable? If the clutch was bad you would rev the engine in gear but the bike would not speed up as it should because the clutch was slipping. But if your cable is out of adjustment pulling the lever may not be disengaging the clutch. You should find the adjustment at the clutch lever, should be a larger locknut and a smaller adjusting screw. You want about 1/2" of freeplay in the lever before it starts disengaging the clutch.

Did it stall with a big **** like you didn't pull in the lever or did it just die? If it died, maybe the sidestand switch is faulting, killing the engine because it thinks your kickstand is still down.
