Could be an air flow problem or a semi blocked petrol filter.try changing air filters and fuel filter. if that doesn't work try dismantling the carb and cleaning iy out. i jus had a similer problem with my bandit 1200.

What is the spark plug gap why is 1 of my exhust pipe hot and the other is not


Dave:
Your #1 cylinder ( the front cylinder) is not firing. It could be that the spark plug is fouled or improperly gapped, or the carburetor is not delivering gas to the cylinder. pull both spark plugs Clean the plugs and gap them. The gap should be about 0.035 In. (thirty five thousandths). Reconnect the wires to the spark plugs. Lay the spark plugs against the outside of the cylinders with the metal part of the spark plug body touching the cylinder (creating the ground part of the circuit). push the starter and look for spark at both spark plugs. If you have spark at both plugs, put them back in and start the bike and check the exhaust pipes to see if they are both hot. If one is still cold, the carburetor for that cylinder is not delivering gas. Could be a kinked or clogged fuel line, disconnect the fuel line from that carburetor and see if gasoline flows out. If gas flows out, the carburetor needs to be tuned or removed and cleaned.

I have a CR250R 03 i just changed the rings and new gasket and cleaned the carb. i also fiddled with the idol screw because once i put everything back together and started the bike it was over revving. so...


Tim,
I would look at three main things first. Compression, spark and fuel. Once in awhile us mechanics can get a "hunch" of what's wrong but overlook some common problems. I would invest in a compression tester and a spark tester. Both are fairly cheap and available at any parts store. Simply unscrew spark plug and srew in compression tester and turn starter over. Observe the reading, do this for all cylinders. Then put plugs back in and install spark tester. Turn starter over and observe spark. If you can get your bike started again, check compresiion and spark when your unit fails. This should put you in the right direction. Hope this helps!

Fuel coming bottom exhaust pipe


Check you fuel pipes in between the V. Your bike wouldn't run at all if there was that much fuel going through the exhaust pipe( not for very long anyway!)

good start on cleaning things BUT, you should replace pump. the pump will have the same gum **** the tank did. you can unhook lines and turn over to see how much fuel you get

My 1994 xr6004 has good compression and has had a new top end, it runs awesome and kicks over fairly easy when cold and runs/drives great, but as soon as it warms up and you shut it off or it stalls out,...


The fuel in the carburetor float chambers is boiling while it sits, and flooding the engine. If it has a fuel petcock turn that off, and let the bike stop through fuel starvation. Then there will be no fuel in there to boil.

I tried to start my '85 kawasaki 454ltd for the 1st time this


Sounds like a bad CDI box. That is part of the ignition. Do you use a fuel stabilizer when moth balling your bike each year? That may have been part of the backfire and shut off. Your bike having carbs may have gummed a little. Are you handy? Try spraying a small shot of starting fluid in the air cleaner,small shot! Just to make sure it's not a fuel problem. Try a different plug in the wire also. Sounds weird,because I'm pointing out fuel starve problem but the plugs could be fuel fouled. Anbd a new set of plugs for that bike shouldn't be that expensive and a good place to start.

My yz wont start, changed spark plug it ran for 1/2hr then died


Couple things- 1. If the plug was dirty after 1/2 hour you have either the wrong heat range plug(too cold) or 2. a fuel/carb issue. Buy a hotter NGK plug, ask for help the numbers don't always make sense. Use only full synthetic 2 stroke (I always liked bel-ray) and fresh 93 octane fuel. When you find a plug that works good buy a case of them, 2 stokes will foul plugs period. And some advice with your solution, never head into the woods without a spare plug, they will foul at the absolute worst time.

90 gsxr 750 wont start, Exhaust seals?


the exhaust gaskets really should have nothing to do with whether your engine will not start. However I assume that by not starting it is turning over smoothly like it should when you try to start, having covered that most motors will not start because no fuel, no spark, or no air not withstanding some major mechanical failure in the valve train or timing or piston, cranks et al..
Trying checking for the obvious first fuel, spark, air flow. then go from there hope this helps
