I had a similar problem with my TTR 125. I removed the carb, removed the float bowl and gave a a careful clean. I also removed the choke plunger mechanism and gave that a few shots of penetrating lube oil. The choke mechanism works much smoother as a result.
Just those two simple things and my bike fired up right away.

My 2004 ttr 225 yamaha has almost no spark, i want to test the coil, pick up coil, CDI, n CDI starter but dont know what levels Im looking for. Also want to know the ignition diagnosis specs. Im...

it has to be 12v. the bike runs on a 12v system. before u check the cdi. check the plug. and the gaping. i had the same problem but it was the pulse coil. the ttr 225 is more of a beginer bike it comes from the factory very lean. so it might not be that you have a low spark because they are not ment to be fast they just have a low spark from the factory. check your carb and the jets. that might just be your problem. let me know how it works out.

Trace the starter wire to the solenoid. Any loose connections? Check the other heavy wire to the solenoid. It should have power present at all times. If no click from the solenoid when the starter button is pressed, check the wiring connections coming from the handlebar. Lastly, look at the starter switch for possible damage from the spill.

Offhand, fuel overflow could be brought about by:
  • misadjusted/punctured float; and/or
  • dirt/sand lodged in the fuel inlet valve. Often this fuel inlet valve is a pin with one end pointed (sometimes rubber) and is controlled by the float.
A seized starter plunger would have to be replaced. This problem could have been brought about by:
  • short/jumping contacts of the starter switch;
  • sticking/corroded terminals/contactors of the starting relay.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
