Question about 2003 Yamaha TT-R 225
The following items on my TTR 225 were replaced
- spark plug
- exhaust (replaced with an FMF Power Core 4)
- air filter
I can't get my bike to run. The battery has plenty of juice and when i spray starting fluid into the spark plug hole the bike will start for a second and when i rev the gas the bike just dies. I have the gas turned on, but for some reason the bike just doesn't want to run and I don't know how to fix it. What should I do?
Mine did the same thing. You should take the cauborator out and clean it. It possibly has some build up where the gas line connects. Next you need to check your gas lines to make sure it isnt pinched/blocked/etc; Thats all i did for mine and it ran perfect.

The cold blooded, hard to start is REAL common on these bikes. The fix I used for mine was to drill out the brass plug that blocks access to the pilot jet screw and turn turn it out 1/2 turn at a time until you get the easier start. I went about 1 1/2 turns out before I was happy. These things are, as I mentioned, cold blooded, and will still need to warm up before running smoothly. careful when you drill out the plug, go slow, you dont want to punch through and mess up the screw it is covering. the plug is about 3/16" thick. I actually drilled a 1/8" hole in it, then drove a drywall screw into the hole and pulled it out. the plug is there for emissions reasons. Yamaha has to have it set lean and "tamper proof" to abide by the laws.

How old is the gas it may have a lot of water or junk in it.drain the bowl on the carb and drain the fuel out of the tank, check the petcock screen inside the gas tank. also i would not spray start fluid into the plug hole, it could blow a hole in the top of your piston,spray a little right into your air cleaner or carb.good luck
