    points are gapped properly?

    tang on new carb float is adjusted properly?



    timing by eye should get you very close.

Its easy to time it, remove the side cover to see the megneto there you will find the timing marks T and F aligne it to T and thn remove the spark pulg to feel the piston if its on TDC (top dead center),
remove also the point plate and the rotor assy you will come to the camshaft sprocket ..there too you will see marks on the camshaft gear which should be to its mark on the head.If they align tht means the timing is ok i.e the valve timming , now u will have to set the igintion timming , by refitting the point plate and adjusting it clockwise or anti clockwise, set theengine to be on the firing stroke and get the plug out thn turn the engine keeping the igntion 'on' you should see sparks at the spark plug as the piston is going downwards.

Hope this helps!

8n (front mount distributor)seems to be frying coils, one day working just fine, next doesn't spark at all, New condenser, plugs, wires, rotor,points, distributor cap. Replaced coil last time seemed to...


Had the same problem, but was my fault for bypassing the ballist resistor (my bad). Anyway, I fried the coil. Read all the posts and bought new 12 volt coil (it has been converted before I got it 13 years ago). New points, condenser, cap, rotor. Now it is just my timing is a little off, but I have strong sparky but not enough to fry my coil again.

If anything, keep the ballist resistor. it is needed to drop the voltage to the coil so it doesn't fry.

Cant get new dirt bike started


Lets start slowly on this.

You have gas and the valve is on? Gas is fresh?

You have a battery and it is charged?

Plugs are firing? (No? check points - condenser - coil)

Are the plugs wet? (too much gas)

If dry, shoot some gas into the combustion chamber. Try again

If no electrical system, is your mag putting out? (got a spark)

Is the spark occuring at the right time? Engine out of time - time it.

If you have spark at the right time (good plugs) and fresh gas - it has to start

You might have a carb problem - but unless you have messed with them/it, and it has run previously, I doubt this.

Let me know if this is of any help

Hi you have your float set about right but your air gap should be at .010 , The other thing you can check is wether the flywheel key is partly sheered i have seen this a number of times and they still run.

My 1974 250 2 stroke will not start. I have a new


With a bike that is 35 years old lots of things could be the problem. I will list what to look for in a "most likely" sequence but with a mind to some of the easy things to check first.
  • Got gas and is it turned on? Clean air filter?
  • Have a buddy kick the starter while you look for spark.
  • Assuming no spark, How good is your battery? Fuses good? Kill switch on or shorted to the bars or elsewhere?
  • carb, head, intake manifold and carb mounted tight?
  • Does the carb intake manifold have reeds? What condition are they in?
  • I don't recall for sure, does the bike have CDI? If so, have the dealer test it and the coil.
  • If no CDI, when was the last time the points and condenser were replaced or points filed and set? Get the coil checked.
  • Remove the flywheel cover. Take hold of the flywheel and, without turning the wheel, lift the flywheel up and down then left and right. Any movement or was the flywheel rock solid? If movement then the crank bearings need replaced along with the crank seals.
  • Speaking of crank seals, how old are your seals? The bike ain't gonna run with bad seals.
This is a pretty good list of things that should keep you busy for a few hours. Wish I were there to help. It's been a long time since I serviced an old Yamaha 250. I was a shop mechanic for ten years.

Let me know what you find out.

I agree, jumped timing. Check to make sure the dist is tight. Than check for tdc on the #1 cylinder. When the #1 cyl is TDC the rotor should be pointing to that wire on the cap. Take the cap off while checking. Also is easier to turn motor by hand without plugs in motor.
