YZ not starting

I don't think this is a float issue. One way to check is to turn the gas off, take the bowl off the carb, hold the float up, and turn the gas back in. If fuel flows, the float needle is toast. It sounds suspiciosly like a worn topend, but it could also be a clogged jet ot fuel filter, or a faulty CDI.

Bike not starting

everyday and it was fine. Yesterday went to a friend's house to ride. Shut her down to wait for him to warm up. When I tried to fire it back up it turned once and stopped. Tried again, turned once, and stopped. Then tried it again, it did not even turn anymore. I repeated this about 10 times with no turning. It just makes a wheeeeee sound. No clicking. Battery is fine. Have it on the charger just to be sure, but I'm 99 percent sure its fine. I'm thinking relay, but so far, all the threads I've read about relay problems have a clicking sound. I have no clicking... I'm searching now, as we speak, but if anyone could help me out,,I saw a relay failure post about a month or so ago. Could be that. For me, the probs I have had like you describe. 1) battery was fried, wouldn't hold charge. (bought new battery) 2) sidestand switch short. Bypass mod is easy job. 3) fuel pump wire shorted (is your pump coming on and priming at key-on?) after fixing those through the years I haven't had any start issues hassles like this suck. I feel for you mate. Best of luck to you though. ,,,
