Question about 2005 Yamaha Xv 250 Virago S

Yamaha dt 200 won't rev off idle

I can start the bike fine, although it smokes more than normal. When I twist the throttle the engine dies. If I do get it up to 3000rpm the engine runs quite well and revs up from there with no hesitation, but if I let the revs drop below 3000rpm its back to ide and won't rev up. Carb has been cleaned in a sonic cleaner and set at the dealer. Any ideas? Anybody?

    If the carb is not a CV carb it will have a slide actuated directly by the throttle cable. Pull the slide out of the throat of the carb then move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. This will richen the low end fuel mix. Two notches my be needed.

You should measure the combustion ratio.Maybe piston rings failed.

Troubleshooting moto guzzi stone


Just a thought as you asked...sounds like a poor throttle position potentiometer ... throttle cabled to butterfly most likely and if ECU dosen't know throttle plate moved you will see this symptom . If electric throttle , can you see(hear) plate moving whilst twisting , if so measure resistance/voltage on pot. . I do not know if resistance of position sensor can be measured while twisting throttle or pushing plate (bike off , battery disconnected or ignition off)
Luck

It sounds like your bike has been sitting in storage for an extended period of time (a year or more) - and the carburetors are plugged up. If this is the case, they will need to be completely disassembled and cleaned out.
If it hasn't been sitting (and the carbs aren't plugged up) then check that all of the normal tune-up items have been performed, especially valve adjustment, oil and filters, spark plugs, etc. If this fails to produce positive results, perform a compression check on the engine. Each cylinder must be able to produce at least 140 psi of compression in order to run and idle properly.

Why does my ttr 125 not start then backfires?


Your bike has a diaphragm on the carb. Every time you twist the throttle a shot of gas goes into the cylinder. Chances are you are flooding the engine by twisting the throttle too often. Flooding can create a backfire. Start with a clean dry plug. Twist the throttle once then leave it alone for about six kicks. Repeat the process if needed.

Electrical problem


Clean the carbs. Then move the jet needle clips down one notch. This should solve the dieing problem. Chances are the engine is flooding due to twisting the throttle too much. Try it with only one twist then no additional throttle. Install a fresh set of spark plugs.

1982 suzuki gs650 runs, but not over 300rpm


better check for the ignition coil for proper sparking or igniting of current in the comprssion chamber, check the ignition coil spark plug wire, check the spark plug, check for proper fuel supply in the flow system to Carbs, check for Ignition timing of the bike, or still you cant solve or still worried then dont worry better take the bike to nearest aurhorised Suzuki service centre for better assistance on this problem surely the problem will be solved.
