SOURCE: very hard to start after the engine is hot

I had this problem before. Here a quick glimpse of what could have been the problem:

Fuel is is filled into the carburetor by the float switch. Starting from cold, its just normal that the carburetor is up and ready for a start. As you cruise along, the carburator is filled up with fuel coming from the fuel tank and is regulated by the float switch. Now, if the engine consumes more fuel than the rate of flow by the float switch, then it will drain the carburetor fuel reservoir empty. What could be the cause? You guessed it right... dirty jets or clogged fuel jet on the float switch. Solution: Open up the carb, clean every hole with wire brush. Blow compressed air on the needles and every hole you could see.. Take not of the ball bearings inside make sure there isnt anything loose when blowing with compresssed air.

Assemble the carb back and cruise for 20 minutes.

Other cases: dirty spark plugs, missfiring plugs, or worse case, CDI ..

Let me know if this helps.

Electric start does nothing and kick start ain't working ur has power Yamaha Cygnus x 125

the way you are describing it the engine is seized
but if the engine will turn over on the flywheel bolt
then it could be a couple of things
using your kick start (if your kick start does not move when pressure is applied then your engine is seized)
(remedy) total engine strip
("your kick start just goes up and down not doing anything")
seized clutch
remedy strip your clutch and clean up
("if a clicking noise is heard when using the electric start but your engine does not move it is your starter solenoid")
take off old one and replace and replace

Cooling fan don't work even if the temperature raise, what should I check?

First if it is electric fan or Viscous Fan. If the electric, check if fuses are ok, connections fine, and if the motor works. If it is the Viscous Fan, there is not much you can do unless you want it to work permanently. Normally the fan will be moving slowly once the engine starts, than when the inner thermostat gets its temperature it kicks in a fan clutch and than the rotor starts spinning as fast as the engine, it is less effective than electric fans as it will only give you the rpm speed of the engine from 1000rpm to 5000rpm where the electric motors give up to 8000rpm.On the Viscous Fan check if it kicks in if not replace it or get someone who knows what he is doing to permanently lock it so it will turn even when engine is cold. Not recommended in normal climate.

Fault with electric start on my Suzuki GSF 250 Bandit

Check that the clutch is in, kick stand up, and neutral light ablaze. Then try your start button. When you had it running and hit the button, the starter engaged at a slower speed then the bike engine was turning, which led to the stall. The stall means your starter works. If the starter works when the engine is running then it is wiring. Check your kick stand wiring along with the clutch wires which plug in on the handlle bar or where the clutch cable enters the engine.

I have a 1974 yamaha dt 36o. It kicks back and runs rough.

its not an electrical problem. the engine either misfires or backfires. you have to be careful since kickbacks can be painful when the stater lever hits your leg.i believe you have to retune your engine, since its an old bike.

Just bought a xr250 cant start not sure of technique,can an electric start be fitted

Electric start means a different engine. Yes, there is a proper way to start the engine. Four controls are on your bike to assist in starting.
  • The choke, used when the engine is cold. Pull the red knob for choke.
  • The " Hot Start " Lever, used when the engine is hot. Pull the lever to lean the fuel mix when the engine has been running.
  • The de-compression lever, always used.
  • The throttle, used to prime the cylinder.
Don't kick, instead, push the kick lever downward. You will feel the back pressure as the piston is going upward on the compression stroke to the point the pressure is great enough that the kick lever "locks up". You are very close to TDC. Now pull in the de-compression lever. Push the kick lever a little bit more to get the piston past TDC. Now release the de-compression lever. Give the throttle a 1/4 turn then let it snap closed. A diaphragm in the carb gives a shot of gas when this is done. DO NOT do this multiple times because you will flood the engine. Leave the throttle closed when kicking. Now give a strong kick through the full sweep of the kick start lever. Quickly get your foot off the kick lever at the end of the kick to avoid any chance of "kickback" from the kick lever. This happens in the case of a misfire, aka > backfire. It can be very painful, and can even break a leg. I am serious about that. Repeat the process (but without the throttle priming), until the bike starts. A good battery, a clean spark plug, a clean carb and clean air filter will also aid in starting.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Kick start will start it. Electric starter will not turn over.

Engine is still cold, battery doesn't have enough juice to supply extra current to ignition coil coz its almost use up by electric starter. Check battery contact. Head light is on.

Commonly on morning when engine is still cold kick about 10 consecutive time before turning on the switch. It will help lubricate it inside and generate some heat. This will lessen starting current to be use up by the starter. Also give some extra fuel to the line.

Hope it helps
