Hi Jilline,
If the carbs have gas and the gas dont get into the sparkplugs this means the main jet and the pilot jet are clogged.
You will have to clean the carbs!

Cheers.

Chances are there is a water build up in the carb float bowls. The water comes from condensation in the gas tank. Try draining the carbs. Another possibility is carburetor main jets partially plugged up. You must clean the carbs if plugged jets are found to be the problem. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_152.gif

Don't use cold start.it will not solve your problem.Try running it with out the air cleaners ,it may be that you have an air intake problem and not getting the right Air / fuel mixture .

Hi,i`ve got a yamaha fz750 1988..and it won`t seem to run on all four cylinders..i took the air box off and while it was running put my hand over each carb one at once and found that on carb 4 it stopped...


Hi JIm,
If it stopped @ 4 tht means thts the only cylinder firing .
Remove the spark plugs,earth @ on the cylinder head, crank start and check for sparks...if its sparking tht means the coils etc. are ok.
As the spark plugs are out exam them to their conditions visit this site for more details :-
http://www.spark-plugs.co.uk/pages/technical/diagnosis.htm

From here you would know if its carburator or probably it may need a complete tune up....carburator cleaning, float level..adjustment, valve clearance.. new plugs (gap to specs.), check air filter, replace or fit 'inline' fuel filter thn balancing of the carbs.
Hope this helps!

1989 Zuma, just rebuilt carb to OEM specs, turned air screw to factory setting, Removed gas cap in case not allowing air. Installed new spark plug. Scooter will fire and run for about 20 seconds then dies....


Half a turn is too much - 1/8th at a time.
Check for air leaks at manifold - both at crankcase and at carb ends.
Does it run (idle) on its own, or do you need to keep on the throttle?
Have you checked the other end (the exhaust!) as well? A blockage there will be as bad as a lack of fuel at the front end.
Make sure you have everything in place - air filter, etc. - as with those little 2T engines, they are far more susceptible to thigs like that than a bigger engine.

750 89' Yamaha Virago gas & oil coming out of air cleaner


sounds like the floats are stuck. cleaning carbs should do the trick. its a good practice to start up motorcycles and let them warm up from time to time while being stored.

Has been sitting up for a year and i'm having trouble getting it to turn over


Check spark (Clean/replace) plugs look for good spark; check battery (bad terminals can interfere with a good ground); check air filters (not clogged that will affect fuel/air mix), check new gas (old gas varnishes in as little as 3-4 months); check carbs( drain floats and look for crud)....Gotta be one of these...process of elimination.
