The crank case should be tightend in a criss cross pattern. Top,bottom,side, side in a circle. The bigger bolts torque to 25 lbs, the smaller ones 10 lbs. I would do the big ones with a torque wrench and the smaller ones by hand. Chaz Moto DC

Bad ignition timing is a possibility, so your timing should be checked when you can, but I'm more tempted to thing your carb is gunked.

I see this post is sort of old but if you haven't found it by now I would say fouled spark plugs, bad sparkplug cap connections where wire meets caps. Low battery voltage , trigger coil going bad that fires the CDI unit located in the alternator . or failing CDI all of which can cause your problem.

1980 SR 250 Yamaha Exciter engine overheating


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Engine oil level and SAE weight are too low or not circulating.
2. Insufficient or blocked air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy combustion chamber carbon deposits.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP, or CMP sensor.
5. Carburetor jetted too lean.
6. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
7. Water coolant old or low change every two years.
8. Water pump failure.
9. Radiator clogged, cap loose or malfunctioning.
10. Radiator fans not coming on.
11. Clutch slipping, brakes dragging, heavy load, towing a trailer etc.
12. Idling too long without moving.
13. For constant hot weather temperatures, mountain, or desert riding conditions consider adding an oil cooler and or cylinder head cooler.

Can't find compression specs for 1980 Yamaha 650G


The compression should be around 150psi, but at 120psi it should pop, try to readjust the valve clearance.
Hope this helps!
