Question about 1989 Yamaha FZR 250 R

1 Answer

My fzr 250 was dropped and will now not start.

The bike was dropped at slow speed(on its right hand alternator side) and has never started since, it has compression, fuel and spark but still will not even fire. have checked the timing chain and it has not slipped and is still in good condition. we also thought to check the resistance from the alternator to the cdi but the books in Japanese. the resistance was .246amp i think if it helps.
cant find a manual in English as it was never bought to Australia.my father in law is a mechanic and thinks that it is electrical but where is the question? any ideas would be greatly appreciated! cheers steve

Hi im having trouble finding parts for my fzr 250 k2 do you knw any dealers that source good second hand parts for my bike


Depending on what parts you need, KLSupply.com was a good source of parts such as electrical, gaskets, seals, carburator parts and such.

Around here second hand parts always seemed hard to come by. And what you could find these people thought their used parts were worth their weight in gold. The japanese change their bikes too often so some parts are harder to come by.

I want to change the oil and filter on my 2KR Model please advise location of filter housing and Drain Plug Thanks


The drain plug is under the left hand foot peg. The filter is located behind the exhaust headers. Remove them and you will see the filter housing at the base of the engine. Refill on the right hand side and your sight glass is under the filler/dipstick (both use the same hole). Remember to only check the oil level when the bike is upright (not standing on its stand)

Hope that is not too vague

ON A 2007 KX250F DIRT BIKE IT IS RUNNING RICH EVERY TIME I REV IT A FLAME SHOOTS OUT OF THE EXHAUST IF I AM LOOKING AT FRONT OF BIKE CARB IS ON RIGHT SIDE WHICH WAY DO I TURN THE SCREW ON THE BOTTOM OF...


turn it clockwise. you should by rule of thumb turn the screw all the way in (until it stops) then back it out 1 and a 1/2 turns then start the bike and adjust from that point. it is the best way to do it.

i would take the carb off and clean it throughly to insure no dirt r grim is the cause of the extra fuel.
good luck man

Starting problems


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A way to verify start the bike from the cold. Note which exhaust will not heat up after the start (carefully). If the exhaust not heating would be from either cylinders 1 & 4 or 2 & 3, then it would be an electrical/ignition problem. If on the other hand what will not heat up will be the exhaust of 1 & 2 or 3 & 4, then it would be a carb/fuel problem.

Alternately, removed all the sparkplugs, reconnect to the cap and lay on metal part, start the bike. Note for absence or presence of spark on plug ends.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

KLX 250 won't fire - new battery


-check the fuse right hand side below the fuel tank and seat, see if it is blown.
- Check to see if plug has spark, replace if necessary .
- Did you run the bike with a low battery before replacing it? could be that your stator is shot.
-Is bike trying to start but won't?
