I had the same issue after a complete rebuild and replacement of numerous parts. One of the previous owners incorrectly wound the recoil pull starter rope in the wrong direction (when facing the internals - counterclockwise) and also put the pawl (metal thing that pops up and engages the shaft pulley wheel) in the incorrect slot (rightside hole). I read a blog of the same issue. I wrapped the cord in the correct direction i.e. clockwise and put the pawl in the correct slot i.e. the left side hole (the pawl was metal stamped with a big "L" by the way), installed the whole assembly back on my Tri-Moto 125 and it now starts on the first pull everytime; no more push starting! I hope this is the issue you are unfortunately facing and now it gets fixed...good luck.

Im 16, and ive never ridden a 2 stroke in my life and im thinking of getting a yz/sx 125 for trail riding. ive never been able to afford a modern 4 stroke so ive been riding a crf230 and a 1980 tt500 yam....


I would suggest a 250 2-stroke or a 4-stroke. Lots of power, lots of pull and the motor would likely last you for years. I've raced both the 125 and the 250 2-stroke at the pro-am level (A-class) and the difference in engine life is tremendous. I would re-ring a 125 every week (running 26:1), while with a 250 I could go for 2-3 months or more without doing the top end while running 32:1.

A YZ 125 will definately be a bit of maintenance - primarily because it has a single ring and the ring doesn't last long. A pro or semi-pro racer would re-ring every race (when the 2-stroke was popular) - some races I would re-ring in between motos. I know you won't be racing, but I would still imagine you would want to freshen up the top end at least every other month at the most. Granted - you can re-ring a 125 in about 45 minutes for a cost of about $18 if you know how and it costs a LOT more for a 4-stroke and is more of a job.

Other than the ring, the rest of the maintenance will be about the same between a 2-stroke and a 4-stroke. You'll still have to do your air filter every ride and your engine oil (tranny oil in a 2-stroke) every other ride. Tires, spokes, sprockets, clutches, chains, brakes - all pretty equal maintenance between the two. Lots of variables, of course.

The difference will be keeping the motor fresh and for that, the 4-stroke will beat the 125 2-stroke. Not the 250 2-stroke, though - these motors last as long or longer than the 4-stroke and are a LOT cheaper to maintain/rebuild.

This is MY experience and my opinion. Your mileage may vary.

It means you need to add oil to your oil tank. Your 2 stroke oil level is low and if you keep driving you will harm your motor.

I need oil for yamaha tri-moto 175


If the motor is a two stroke, (and i am sure that it is), you need to stop riding until you fill the tank with TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL . Riding without oil will quickly cause the engine to seize up. If not using an automatic oil pump, then mix the gas and oil 32 to 1. That equals 4 ounces of TWO STROKE ENGINE OIL to one gallon of gas. NEVER use motor oil in the gas. Only two stroke engine oil.

Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks! < < And it doesn't cost anything extra!
