    2001 Yamaha YZ 125. Good spark, fresh gas, new air filter, spark plug. No problems starting until several days ago. Built up a sweat trying to kick it over last night. Just won't start. I read some of the suggestions about tipping the bike over to allow gas to flow out the over flow tube. I will give that a try. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

You should try cleaning your carb i dont know how often you clean your air filter but if you havn't done that you should do it also.after you do that turn the gas on lean it over till gas runs out the over flow and give it choke no gas and try kicking it over.you should be able to just loosen up the clamps on each side of the carb and twist it so you can get to the float bowl,unscrew the four screws and blow it out with a air nossle you can try that before you go through the troubles of taking it off to clean it.

Hello there guys, listen a top tip is when the engine's cold tip the bike almost right on its side nearly touching the floof, wait for the petrol to poor out of the carb over flow pipe, this should take a matter of a few seconds, stand the bike back up again and kick and that baby should start right up, if it does then you have a problem with your float, if it still doesn,t then take it to a shop and get them to check it out, hope this helps. regards sam

    Yea sam mine just died after i left the choke on too long and it died when i turned the choke off and then i started it it was running real bad and then bogged out. when i tried to start it i had the gas on and when i pulled out the carb (as this only happened saturday) the carb was dry so i think it may be the float.

Try cleaning out the exhaust, this happend with me a couple of years back, i put in some new piston rings and took my engine completly apart... In the end it was just my exhaust holding water, so all that time and effort was a waste :(

Hope this helps

I was riding my 2003 yz125 and it stalled since then i have not been able to kick start the bike i checked the plug and its getting plenty of spark i put a compression tester on it and its reading 150 psi...


Hi, David and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
10. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Fuel tank empty.
14. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
15. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.
16. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
17. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.

Yzf 450 wont start when hot


the wiring or components are worn causing resistence--getta repair manual for the detailed tests----------also when at home run an electric fan at motor when stopped--it cools it fast and gives air cooled engines 3 times the life span

My 1995 yz125 started up fine 3 days ago now it wont start at all? i have tried leaning it on its left side until fuel came out of the overflow and tried starting and nothing. what can i do next?


If fuel came out of the over flow it sounds like you flooded it. What happend since three days ago? Change the plug and try to start it, could be a fouled plug also.

The battery on my 1995 Yamaha Virago 250cc is not working


starter brushes could be worn out or a dirty or loose connection!
Starter button may need checking also the solenoid
week compressin or leaking diaphrams in carbs will cause it too
I suggest you charge battery & start at the button & work your way back

Bike wont start, lights come on, has gas, wont kick start either


1st is all the way down, neutral is between 1st and 2nd. Sometimes hard to find.
The problem is probably a dead battery. Try to start it using a jumper cable off the car (if you know how) Get some help from someone who knows something about motorcycles.
Please have your son take some kind of lessons before he rides much. I don't want to cast a pall on his fun but he will be better off. (And live longer)
