Hi Anonymous, you could have an oil pressure sending unit going south on you or a broken or loose connection at said unit. They relatively inexpensive try replacing it. Good luck

SOURCE: Ran fine, shut down for a minute and now no power at all.

Their are a ton of things it could be. I would start out with the ignition switch, when you turn it on does it allow power to pass through? Have you check the fuses? Is the ground tight and clean?

If the previous owner had a key fob on the key I would look hard at the ignition switch first.

SOURCE: 2001 XL1200S Cuts out and dies at highway speeds for a moment

If it was stored with fuel in the tank:

1. The fuel filter should be replaced
2. You may to replace the fuel delivery system coming out of the tank
3. Remove the plug in the carb and reset the idel mixture

I just bought one store for 6 years - my issue is the bike will n ot idel but runs on the road like a bat out hell.

SOURCE: Shuts off spits and sputters

Check for vacume leaks first. Rubber lines..gaskets to carbs ect. Also remove and blow out your fuel line to tank and change out filter. Hope this helps.:)

SOURCE: it shuts down in to ect forced idle mode

Most of the time when it goes to a kind of a electronic idle it is a fuel problem. Is the bike EFI or Carb? Are you putting in 91 octane fuel? Running below 91 octane can cause this problem after a long period of running the lesser. I found this out the hardway replacing everythiing from the coil to the computer. I hope this helps you

Bike has not been rode for over a year finally got it to start easy, but while I had the air cover off I shut it down because gas mixed with oil was being pumped out the breather hose on rear cylinder


YEAR,MAKE,MODEL??
Plus,...if the bike has been sitting for a long time,it is possible to have water in the fuel tank. So i wouldnt rule out gas just yet. Most likely it is fuel mixing with oil,and the carbs are going to have to be taken off,cleaned,floats set,and synched. And of course,drain old fuel and replace with new fuel. It would also be a good time to change the plugs,and oil while your at it.

The oil light comes on only when the outside temperatures are over 90 degrees and I have ridden the bike for over an hour long. Everything seems to run fine and the oil level is good in the sight glass....


I would change the oil and filter, you could have thermal breakdown going on causeing a loss of oil pressure....3.3 qts of Mobil 1 15w30 synthetic is recommended.
I hope this helps.

2006 Yamaha TTR 50E pouring oil out of air cleaner housing


With the oil problem I read on another site that Yamaha did that so that excess oil would be burned up in normal running (but this was usually smaller amounts). Anyways they disconnected the tube going to the air cleaner and had tied up in such a way that any excess oil would land on the chain thus lubricating it. But if you have that much oil coming out it could be that you have put in too much.

Oil leak


Your oil leak sounds like it might be coming from the crankcase breather. If so, it means that something in the engine is allowing gasses past into the crankcase.....
