    My 250 wr Before putting it away for the winter I wanted to check the oil to make sure it had no water in it.. oil which previously appeared on the dip stick (on the frame) was low... I added and added, before it showed? Yesterday during my mid winter warm up oil spewed out everywhere and it smoked like a 72 Omni.
    I checked the oil after it warmed up , magically it was right full. I drained it down till it was midpoint on the dip stick, started it and it ran clean, then started to smoke and blow oil every-where, again the dip stick indicated it was over filled....???
    It is my first 4 stroke and I,m lost, help...

    make sure you are checking the oil when the bike is level AND be sure to know if the oil dipstick needs to be threaded in or just placed in the reservoir to take the reading. some bikes you just place it in and remove; others you threaded it in, then unthread and make the reading.



    if you want to be sure you have the right amount, drain it all out, then refill with the recommeded amount. see where it is on the dipstick, then let it sit a day or two. take another reading and see if it dropped or remained the same.

    are we talking oil or gas out of the overflow line?



    if oil, was it stored outside? maybe water got into the cylinder and into the oil through the spark plug hole or carb during bad rainy weather? i would drain the oil and not only measure the quanty removed from the bike, but also look to see if you see water in the oil.



    if fuel, let us know and we can provide troubleshooting steps.

Just check the crankcase filter to make sure it isn't stopped up if it is that will make the crankcase build up pressure and blow the oil out

How can i improve the performance of yamaha AG200 which has travelled 8900km trouble areas shock obsorbers and the engine


AG bikes are not designed for performance. If the bike is working as intended by Yamaha, then it is for farm use only. If the suspension is leaking oil or become 'springy' then new fork seals and a back shock replacement or rebuild may be needed. If you want the engine to go faster then you need to seriously look at buying another bike because the AG200 is not designed to go 'fast'. If you are after a trial bike you might want to look at Honda CRF250L, XR250/400, Yamaha XT or TTR250, TT350, Kawaski KLX range. Enduro bikes: Yamaha WRF250/450, Honda CRF250X/450X, Suzuki DRZ400, RMX250, Kawasaki KDX200 (2 strokes are easier and cheaper to rebuild) so my choice would be RMX, KDX, DT200, Husky WR250/300, KTM300 - these are cheap 2nd hand too! Don't buy a bike that is way out of your ability range. Ride on!

Well i would say the clutches have sat dry to long. You may change the oil and it solve the problem but more than likely new clutch discs.

check the oil level again. trace the tube to see what it really is. make sure it isnt coming from the oil filter. had 1 that was the wrong size and was like 2mm off in length. screwed down tight but had a persistent leak. good luck. if it is the oil overflow, I used a very clean shop towel and wicked out excess by dipping it in the filler hole.

Did You try to start it several times, then it kicked in a little, then a little more, then
started spitting oil and won't even start?
Has it been sitting for quite some time?
Did you put new gas in it?
If so...................................................
Check the OIL and replace if needed..........................................
Put in a can of high test GAS...Spend at least $10.00!.................
Spray a lot of Starter Fluid ($3) into the Air Intake........................
Crank Engine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

When you get it running, IF IT'S STILL BLOWING OIL .............................
Add a can of CRANKCASE SEAL'S LEAKS (less than $10) for conditioning
the seals............................................and......................................................

NEVER USE YEAR OLD GAS AGAIN AND ADD FUEL CLEANER AT
EVERY OIL CHANGE!

2003 WR250 F - eng. won't idle down and carb starts to overflow


Hi Jwelden,
Have you checked the float level in the float chamber?
I guess you may have to reset the float pin adjustment, its allowing more gas to pass through thn required and thus the overflow!
Not bad too, when you are working on the float assembly take the opportunity to blow out the fuel line from petcock to the carburator via the seat for the float pin,any foreign particals there would stop the float pin to seal up and thus overflow.
Fit in an inline fuel filter , this will help keep out the dirt or whatever.
Hope this helps.
