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.

Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Be sure the bolts are tight. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Set the idle speed with the idle screw. This process should get you back on the road.


Please rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: Yamaha timberwolf wont start unless push started

You have a loose connection to the ignition system . When cranking make sure it is in neutral. and kill switch is in run position. The only thing dropping would sensibly affect is the fuel system or jarring a switch., but with the suspension you have there really is no jarring. So, I would ck the wiring. something is loose.

Check to make sure your getting gas by pulling off the hose, if no gas comes out your petcock is clogged. If this is the case blow air up into the hose, and if gas comes out now your tank has to be cleaned out.

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.

How to fix the yamaha krypton starter not engaging the engine


Hi, Anonymous the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

How do i reset the service spanner symbol on my aprilia 125 leonardo sport city scooter


Ok, disconnecting the battery does NOT reset the service light. To reset the service light (spanner symbol) on dashboard you must hold the mode button for about 5 seconds with ignition OFF then while still holding the mode button turn ignition on, continue holding the mode button for a futher 10 - 12 secs and then it should just disapear. This solution was brought to by RPMs. Mobile motorcycle service.

Hi, Dpestana and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

Yellow oil symbol kept turning on


this could be due to low oil. you need to check your oil level. if it is full i would do an oil change with a bmw filter. there is a difference in filters. the service engine soon light will have to be diagnosed. meaning pull codes to point you in the right direction. great car though. happy holidays

Engine wont start...


since have change new battery, will the motor turn over? if the engine turn over or crank, check if you have sparks, by pulling the plug out and ground it to the metal to the bike and turn the motor over and see if you getting spark, double check if you are getting fuel, two items to make the engine run, sparks and fuel. if the stater dont make any sound when you press the start button it may be faulty serenoid to the starter, check starter and starter switch. you can get a light tester and test positve and negative contact to your serenoid/starter by hold or pressing start button to see if you get power to the starter. hope that help some

Wrench light is on and odometer shows negative mileage


The negative number means the car should have had it's oil changed that many miles ago. Oil life starts at 100% for new oil & counts down every 10%. At 15% the display will always show, which means it's near time to change the oil.

usersteve83, your oil may have been changed but the timer not reset. Reset the timer as shown...
1. Turn ignition to the "ON" position. (do not start engine)
2. Press SEL/RESET repeatedly until the oil life indicator is displayed.
3. Press & hold the SEL/RESET for about 10 seconds until it blinks then let go of the button.
4. Press the SEL/RESET again for about 5 seconds or until the oil life indicator resets to 100%.

Wrench = Maintenance Minder: Symbol letter & number...
Symbol A - Relace engine oil.
Symbol B - Replace engine oil & filter, Inspect front & rear brakes, Check parking brake adjustment, Visually inpest the tie rods, suspension components,driveshaft boots, brake hoses & line (including ABS), all fluid levels & their conditions, exhaust system, fuel lines & connections.
Symbol 1 - Rotate tires.
Symbol 2 - Replace air cleaner element (dusty conditions every 15K miles) & replace dust & pollen filter (behind glovebox) every 15K miles if mainly dusty or city driving.
Symbol 3 - Replace transmission fluid.
Symbol 4 - Replace spark plugs.
Symbol 5 - Replace engine coolant.

All above are taken from the 2006 Civic EX owner's manual.
