Question about Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a 92 Yamaha jog. My first problem was bad fuel **** and no air filter. I replaced both and had spark but ignition was stolen so I crossed the brown and red wire and kick started it it ran around the block but now I have no spark and the spark plug was only used a handful if times. My carburetor is clean, fuel **** works as supposed to, fresh oil and gas but struggles to start. What else can I try??

Possible ignition coil or control box burned out? In general with an electric start engine, cranking load drops the available voltage to 10 volts or less so the ignition coil primary winding is wound to operate on 9 volts. So while cranking, the coil is fed battery available voltage. when the start button or ignition switch is returned to the run position, the coil is fed through a ballast resister that drops battery voltage, around 12 to 14 volts to 9 volts. if the ballast resister is bypassed and full battery voltage is fed to the coil, it will overheat and burn out.Check the primary coil resistance, it should have a low resistance or continuity. If burned out, it will have no continuity or a very high-to-infinity resistance.

SOURCE: Our 2000 Yamaha TT-R125L engine won't fire. It is a kick start

Here are a few things to do >>
How old is the gas in the gas tank? Get fresh fuel.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Clean the bowl and filter screen if present, then re-mount them, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl or screen ).

Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Set the idle speed with the idle screw.


I am uncertain if the bike has ran for you or not. "Did pull the spark plug and kick started it." If the bike still will not run then the cam chain may be out of time. Why was the tensioner off the bike?

Please rate this solution. Thanks budx5!

SOURCE: won't idle steadily

Check the rubber boot that joins the carby to the engine to often have seen the hose clamps over tightened therefore creating a split in the rubber letting to much air in giving the rough idle eventually you wont be able to start it at all (have a good thorough look inside an outside of boot doesnt take much)

G'day egdbcs . Ok.now lets see.You say good spark,so i'm presuming you are doing the old sight test.Try bending the arm on a know good sparkplug about 5-6mm,earth the plug and kick'er in the guts(crank it over)Be very carefull , high voltage danger.If there's still a good spark it's safe to say that there will also be a good spark under pressure in the combustion chamber,speaking of which you should also do a compression test,anything over 100psi should be ok. as i'm not to sure of the extent of the re-build,hopefully the valves were lapped and checked for straight and true and valve seals replaced,if you notice oil on the tip of the spark plug you could have a leaking valve seal or oil seal .Try putting a small amount of fuel directly into the combustion chamber ,tighten up the spark plug ,install the plug cap and.......Yeah ..You guessed it ..."kicker in the guts".If all the abouve are correct and true it should fire up.If it runs for 5-10 seconds then stops you've got some sort of fuel starvation problem , could be dirt in the carb,blocked idle jet ,or air passage or even the needle could have come off it's clip,believe me with an old bike like yours anything could be worn and loose inside that carby.The only other thing to consider is the timing.There may be a good spark but is it happening at the right time inside the engine???. I'll leave it all in your capable hands EGDBCS.Hope this helps to solving your worries. Chow for now......Tilleydog..

SOURCE: 2007 yamaha virago won't start - replaced spark

it's not that your not gettin gas it's that the gas is not getting thru the carbs to the engine. your bike will probably start w/choke on and then die, your jets are clogged and happens to most bikes that are stored w/gas in the carbs.,,,clean them if you know how or take it to a trusted mech...good luck to you...Tim

SOURCE: buick regal 92 3.8L Horrible fuel mileage

Sounds like you might have an oxygen sensor problem. Your catalytic converter(s) maybe defective or dirty. That in turn can dirty up the oxygen sensor. A defective oxygen sensor will send faulty info to the computer, interpreting the fumes as cold (even when the engine warms up). That causes the computer to adjust the fuel mixture to very rich, giving you poor gas mileage and the fuel smell. Hope it helps.

My 2006 yamaha jog only wants to run for a couple seconds


if its watercooled jog rr the most likely problem will be the haed gasket leaking,these mopeds always suffer from that the gasket leak water into the combustion chamber and it starts briefly then wets the spark plug up and causes the spark plug to short out killing the spark.other than that it could be. carburettor jet blocked or the float in the carb badly adjusted .if it is the gasket leaking make sure you replace it with. genuine one or you will have the same problem again soon.trust me been there done that im a doctor.

My son's yamaha wr125r was stolen and they smashed the ignition i have fitted a new one but it sill will not start


Sorry to hear that.... Thieves aren't very careful about how they treat things they've stolen (joy-riders more so) it may be they have burnt out some other component but check spark plug, air filter and HT leads, fuel filter and carb. don't forget fuses. Red.

92 bonneville, keeps shutting off and after 10 - 20 mins will crank back up. But after riding for so long it will shut off when coasting or coming to a stop. Or not crank up after driving for awhile......


this is not a problem to change fuel filter, you have to know if there is fuel pressure and spark from the ignition coil , air filter clug
air,fuel,fire tree things to have to get it running

Hi, Barrytaylor6 and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Dirty air filter.
10. Intake air leak.
11. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system.
12. Carburetor damaged, contaminated, sticky float, plugged jets.
13. Multiple carburetors out of sync.
14. Fuel filter clogged.
15. Old or contaminated fuel.
16. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carb vent line closed off.
17. Gas cap diaphragm valve faulty.
18. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
19. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
20. Incorrect valve timing.
21. Valve springs floating, weak, or broken.
