Maybe a fuel problem.

My 04 yamaha TT-R 225 was running fine and now it will not start. I replaced the the plug but the bike seems likes it's not getting fuel but has plenty on spark.

04 ttr 225 carb appears to be gummed up. Full throttle is OK but need choke on full to idle and run at slow speeds

Hi, Shall582 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Vacuum line from the petcock to intake manifold cracked.
5. Float needle and seat sticking.
6. Float level too low.
7. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
8. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
10. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
11. Slow fuel jet clogged.
12. Faulty fuel pump.

Yamaha tt-r 225 backfires, no idle without choke on, acts like bad gas but changed the gas, carburator problem? will run but must be revved at all times or engine dies

You carb needs to be removed, completley disassembled, and soaked in a quality carb cleaning solution, overnight. The bad fuel has gummed up your carbs internal passageways

I have a yamaha ttr230 and since i have pulled it out of storage this spring it cant make it run right. It starts fine and idles but a soon as any throttle is given it dies out . I have put fresh gas in it...

G'day, sounds a bit like the float valve in the carby might be stuck nearly shut or just some moisture in the carby, a light tap with the handle of a screwdriver on the side of the carby bowl should fix it if it's the needle stuck shut (happens from sitting sometimes), or maybe try loosening the drain screw in the bottom of the carby bowl to drain any water etc out, hope this helps :)

I have a Yamaha TTR 225 four stroke that is having engine problems. When trying to start the dirt bike a fine mist of starting fluid must be administered to the carburator or else it will shut off within...

If it is a fuel delivery problem, I would start by pulling the gas tank, dumping it out then pulling the petcock on the bottom of the tank and clean the pre-filter with compressed air. Next, pull the carb and take it apart - they are fairly simple and you can get into it without needing to buy any parts. It's possible there is just water or other junk in there that needs to be removed. Clean it really well and put it all back together with fresh fuel and a clean air filter and try it again.

It's also a possibility that your engine compression is low. These things need new rings every once in a while. Keep in mind I know nothing about the age or condition of this bike.

Engine oil type and quantity for 04 yamaha 225ttr

I use and recommend Castrol Syntec motorcycle oil 10-40wt for your bike. Should hold about 1 1/2 quarts. Buy 3 qts when your at the store, then youll have some for topping off. Start by pouring in 1 qt (after oil has been drained and new filter installed) then check dipstick w/ bike level on level ground. Keep adding a little at a time until dipstick registers full....Good Luck to you my friend....Tim

Trouble starting my 2003 TTR 225

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

Possible running too rich! 2001 TTR 225

First I would pull the spark plug to see what it looked like, you want it to be a chocolate color. If it is black and wet then yes you are running rich. Also check your air filter, go ahead and clean the filter. If all this doesnt solve the problem then we probably need to look at our carb.
