OMG! men i got exactly the same problem and tought i could repair it myself so i took the bike apart (thinking that a fuel line was craked or something) but when i look everything seemed fine so i did more research and it was coming out from the carburator so i took it to the dealer and got it fixed for about 600$ and everything if perfect now (mine is also a 2002 one)

    well i lost the bill which listed all the parts they changed in order to fix the problem but if i ever come accros it, i'll tell you (and if your from Canada, qc ) you can call at ''motofolie'' and maybe they can tell you what they have to change if ever your fuel is leaking from the carburator like it was in my case.

I have a 02 Yamaha yzf600r no start fuel is pumping, crank with starter fluid so theirs fire it's like gas is not going into carbs.


Jets might be clogged up or trash in carbs. Remove carbs and service them, then sync them again. This is common on any carborated bike that sits for an amount of time (like during winter), ethanol in modern fuel is also known to clog up carburetors.

Yamaha TW 200 starts but won't run.


If the bike has sat for a long period of time without being run - the gas that is sitting in the carb(s) will shellac.. Then the carb(s) would need to be cleaned and "rebuilt"..
