Not always but if it drives normally then assume it is. trying to remember if this was a semi-automatic trans ( no hand clutch ) if it is, then yes, this would be normal

Firstly, if you are not a mechanical person you should never buy a vehicle that does not run.
However, here are some basic tests.
1. Connect a good battery.
2. Remove the spark plug.
3. Turn the motor using the starter motor or kick starter.
4. check for spark by inserting a new plug into the plug cap. (make sure the plug is grounded).

If the motor turns freely and there is spark, chances are good that the motor will run. This does not mean that the motor is in a good condition. Only with the motor running will you be able to know for sure.

You will now have to source a carb and fit it to the 4 wheeler.
Fitting the carb is not too difficult. Check that the intake manifold is not perished or torn, and remember to use the airfilter.

Enjoy the ride !

SOURCE: 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.

How to test stator on a Yamaha 225 Moto 4 four wheeler with a ohmmeter

3 yellow (or white) wires. Test lead to lead. Should be continuity. Then, test each lead to ground. Should be no continuity.
Should also check for AC voltage when running, lead to lead. Should get 40+VAC when revving up engine.
Do not plug in or unplug wires from stator to regulator while running.

Did you drain the gas and oil and put fresh in before starting and running? Because if not you could have killed your engine over time gas and oil go bad from sitting. Also maby a new spark plug idk what else maby do a compression test.

1995 hanoda 125 three wheeler will not change gears stuck and can not get it out of gear - is there an adjustment or a online manual that i can read to fix the problem - thanks

make sure the clutch cable is properly adjusted, next thing would be to check if your clutch itself is in good condition and adjusted. to test, pull clutch lever in (with bike off) place it in gear, bike should move freely when pushed forward.. if that is all well and doesnt work good, you need transmision repairs,shifting forks probably bent.
