Question about 1991 Yamaha XT 600 E
Posted by Anonymous on
This can be for a few reasons such as air intake restrictions poor or dirty fuel ,cabs blocked or some electrical problem My starting place would be fuel , empty your fuel tank and drain your cabs check any fuel filters , if fuel in your tank is muddy looking or there or there is excessive rust build up in your tank this can also contaminate your carbies causing blockages as well as making the fuel a poor quality and hard to be combusted properly resulting in poor revving ability , if the fuel checks out ok you still need to consider blockages in the carbs so start off with a good carb cleaner and spray it into the fuel line intakes on all carbs and air intake areas as well as removing the float chamber covers on the bottom of your carbs and spraying everywhere with carb cleaner replacing the fuel filter or installing one is a good idea . the air intake filter needs to be checked and cleaned making sure its in good condition if not replace it , Next you will need to remove and clean your spark plugs and inspect them for discoloration as in spark plugs that are black and sooty looking means the fuel is not getting burnt sufficiently and is called to rich or if the plugs show a white pale coloration this can mean lack of fuel is been delivered and is called to lean, if plugs are in a poor condition replace them . These jobs can be easy done by your self and can fix many problems but if you have tried these methods or found them to difficult and nothing has improved its time to get some expert to find out and possibly fix your bike ( bike shop machanic )

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).
Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Usually related to TORS, specifically the safety switch in the clutch/park brake assembly. If it's defective the engine won't rev. Solution: look for a TORS removal kit.

If your negative battery cable has been disconnected, and you can't tell where it goes, anyplace on the metal frame where you can make a good connection will be ok. You will need a sturdy bolt that you can tighten enough.
