Question about 1987 Yamaha FZR 250

1 Answer

Incorrect float levels on 1988 fzr250

I'm not sure if it is a fuel problem (seems likely), but my son has an fzr250 that won't rev out. It seems to be starving for fuel. I've checked and bypassed the fuel pump without success and feel now it is either low on compression and won't draw fuel or the float levels are too low. I think it is the latter. However, I'm at a loss to figure out what they should be and how to set them. Can you help?

Depending on if the bike has been sitting you can check this out a couple of different ways. First hook a vacum gauge to motor. If your readings of vacum are low you may have a tight or burnt valve. If engine is ok i would lean towards the carbs.

How do I go about fixing a reving issue on my bike? It doesnt like to rev past about 10,000 rpms. I was thinking maybe the carbs need to be rejetted. The bike will rev to redline in neutral.


Hi, Ani and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely drained or faulty battery.
2. Faulty regulator/rectifier or high output coil.
3. Faulty power valve, solenoid or installation.
4. Clogged air filter or exhaust.
5. Cracked or incorrect float level.
6. Float needle is not seating.
7. Faulty reed valve.

What does hesitation when reving mean?


If carburetted it sounds like either a low fuel level in the carb ie float setting incorrect or plugged fuel filter or kinked line or miadjusted or worn accelerator pump.

When you get to about 55mph the engine loses revs, when you take throtte off it picks up again


I'm guessing you have a fuel delivery problem caused by a defective petcock, a plugged fuel filter, or incorrect float level (causing you to run out of gas at high speed until you slow down and refill the float bowl so the carburetor can flow gas properly) If your float level is set to low, the bike will run normally until you go fast enough to run the bowl out of gas. Hope this helps.

Carb float on a 1988 hondahurricane


With the float installed turn the carb upside down so the float is pointing up adjust the tab until you see the underside of the float is parrellel to the carberator's metal flat body section. This setting will provide the proper fuel level in the carb providing the proper maintained level of fuel for performance around tight turns as well as idling.
