Check the grounds on your 22 year old bike. The flasher works because of heat building up in a bi-metal strip in the flasher. It gets hot, breaks connection; it cools, makes connection, repeat. If the rear lights are NOT coming on, you are not drawing enough power to heat the bi-metal strip thus it is not heating or cooling, making and breaking connection, not flashing. Check ALL ground connections from your rear signal lamp back to the negative terminal on the battery. Dont miss one connection - lamp to lamp holder, lamp holder to fixture housing, housing to fender, fender to frame, frame to battery (minus side) and so forth. Corrosion is not your friend here - if you find it - clean it. I believe you will find that if you put a wire from the housing to the battery negative terminal, your light will come on. If it doesn't, check the hot side of the circuit.

Oh, by the way, your battery is in tip top condition, right?

You need to replace the flasher relay on your bike. Its a black plastic cube or rectangular in shape that has the inscription Denso (usually) in it. It should also have the inscription "4 bulbs 25 watts".. this is the main unit you need to replace.

SOURCE: Remove seat and battery Yamaha tw-200

There are two seat bolts under the seat that must be removed. Obviously, if the underside of the fender is covered in mud, you'll have to clean it first. A metric socket works best to remove the bolts.

After removal of the seat bolts, lift the back of the seat, then pull straight back; a plastic flange on the front of the seat hooks under the tank, and so you have to pull it backwards to remove it.

With the seat off, removing the battery is pretty easy. A rubber strap holds the battery down; unhook and remove it. Unscrew the lead wires and unhook them (negative first), then pull the battery out.

Install a replacement battery by reversing these steps. Yamaha recommends charging a new battery before installing it.

The noise you hear is valve clatter. You should not adjust your timing chain. Instead get a manual and find the vlave clearances for that bike. (Ex. The exaughst valve may be .006" and the intake valve may be .004") Then you'll need a feeler gauge, and to do this you'll remove the valve covers and get the engine to TDC (Top Dead Center) This is where the piston is at the very top of it's stroke and both valves are shut. (compression stroke) You must then loosen the rocker arm nut to the point that you can insert the feeler gauge between the rocker arm and the top of the valve run the nut down tight to the feeler gauge and then pull gauge out and repeat on the other valve.

SOURCE: 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"..

SOURCE: Yamaha TW 200 cuts out at high rpm

I have a tw200 and when I have this problem its from the cam chain slipping back a notch when I unload it from my truck. I leave it in gear so when I let off the cluch it acts as a brake. I ride by my self so thats why I load it that way. I am guessing you load and unload your tw the same way. So remove the timing cover and make sure you are tdc on both the upper and lower timing marks. The bike will run if the timming is off a bit. It's really easy to set the timing on these bikes. It's easier to look for how to on the xt 200 if you need more help.

I have a 1996 Yamaha Virago 1100. The rear left turn signal stays on, the right rear flashes fast when turned on and the two front running/signal lights dont come on. What should I do


Hi, Joe before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced you OEM lights with LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer. If no turn signals work the cause could be a faulty turn signal module or the connector going to it, look for corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion. If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function. If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction. If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, (the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender) then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire. If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector. If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

I have 1986 Yamaha Venture. I took the luggage bags off to have the rear tire replaced by dealer. Picked up the bike and now I have no signal lights front or back. The front bulbs are working but do not...


The front lights are running lights and turn signals....so you are probably seeing the running light lit, as it should be any time the key is on.
The power for the turn signals goes through the Hazard flasher switch, its set up so you can't try the turn signals and the hazard flashers at the same time. First inspect to see the harness is still firmly connected to the switch.
I would remove the hazard flasher switch and with harness still attached, key ON, the Hazard switch OFF, verify you have battery voltage at the Brown wire.....thats from the Signal fuse circuit. If its okay.....now check the brown/yellow wire for voltage...thats from the switch going to the flasher system...if no power....you have a problem in the switch. A great site for Venture repair is the venturers.org site.
Hope this has helped!

We want to lower a Yamaha TW 200 for one of our riders who has a 26 inch inseam. We are hoping to lower it about 2.5 inches with lowering links and by dropping the triple tree down 2.5 inches. Is this...


You should be able to slide the front forks down in the tripleclamp about 2" up front. In the back you will have to buy or make lowering brackets. You might be able to modify the factory rear linkage if you take your time with it... Good luck and happy motorcycling. HDTV GURU JAY

1990 acclaim signal and brake lights


You need to check for power & ground at left rear socket, and clean it & contacts in it well, and may have to squeeze socket a bit to supply better ground to outside of bulb base. If that doesn't work, poke wires going into back of socket with test light, with signal on, and if power present, replace the socket assy. About $5.00
