You need fresh gasoline in it, if it's been idle for two(2) years, you also have to clean everything that your gasoline touches like the tank, fuel filter, fuel line, carburator, before pouring it in. If that wont help you, Have your CDI tested if your plugs wont spark. Also ask for the history of your bike, if it was running before they stopped using it.

I have a 1986 Yamaha yz490. it ran great until it sat for two years when i went to start it it felt like it wanted to start. I replaced the spark plug and replaced the fuel filter. when i kicked it over i...

Your cylinder is probably full of fuel, becareful here. Disable the spark and kick it over with the spark plug out to remove the fuel.
Your problem sounds like a stuck float in the carburator. It needs to be removed and cleaned out good.

Doesn't start up , and oil light is on my 1986 yamaha fz600

The oil light wont go off until there is oil pressure ie: it has to start first.

" Doesnt start up" is not really enough info to offer any ideas,
it has an oil light so the battery has some voltage.
Does the starter motor turn it over?
What happened when it stopped?
When did it last run?
Has it sat unused for a long time?
Will it roll start?
When was it last serviced?

Spark plug order

If you are sitting on the bike, cylinder 1 is on your left then 2,3,4....looking at the coils, the left coil- left lead goes to no1cylinder. right lead goes to cylinder4. Right coil- left lead to cylinder 2, right lead to cylinder 3.
Hope it helps you.

Hi Johnsong,

You will have to clean the carburators!
The float chamber has more fuel thn required could be a siezed or dirt in the float pin.
Clean and readjust to its correct level.
