SOURCE: bike wont start

Hi,

Initially, pls check/verify:

  • left ignition coil goes to #1 & #4 plugs while right ign coil supplies 2 & 3;
  • presence of spark on each and all of the plugs;
  • temporarily remove the air cleaner/filter box/assembly and cover each crb opening with the palm of your hand while cranking. presence of gas would be noted with fuel on your palm;
  • engine flooded. remove, clean, dry/replace plugs.
Incidentally, if no spark on plugs, check connectors to CDI, or starting with the clutch lever pulled.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: NOISY FUEL PUMP ON 650 YAMAHA VSTAR (2002)

your fuel pump suppose to Hum and gently vibrate only when working normally, clacking sound would only mean that it is having a hard time or inconsistently supplying gasoline into your engine. Have it checked and see if any improvement would happen.

SOURCE: Electronic Fuel Pump

It turned out that the ignition key was faulty and it cut out my fuel pump and power to my spark plug but all other electrics worked. Tried my spare key and could hear fuel pump working pressed starter and it fired up how bizarre is that. so problem sorted.

It seems likely that your fuel pump is not operating, you should hear the fuel pump priming when you turn on the ignition, if not the fuel pump is at fault, this is not uncommon and a replacement is the answer.

G'day. Two probable causes I can think of are.1/ Faulty ignition coil/cap.2/ accellerator pump not working(carburettor models only).Have your ignition coil/cap tested first as it is easier than removing the carby to check if the accellerator pump is working.To test the accellerator pump.Remove carby,with cables & fuel re- connected- opperate throttle-should squirt out fuel from front of carby.
Hope this is helpfull

You need to have a fuel pressure gauge to check it when it wont run. Take your fuel pump relay and switch it for the horn relay. Is the ground good for the fuel pump, the wire bolts on the frame. these had problems with the connector at the fuel tank, make sure they are in good conditon and dont look like they have been hot or melted.

hello this is only a solution

try putting a new float in the carb and check that it isnt flooded or the carb housing is cracked because it could be sucking in air some where and make sure its the right carb for the bike

if this dosent work the cheapest way it to make the valve clearance right as it says in the manual then try it if still not try bumping the bike if this dosent work just ask again

thanks hope it helped

2001 ranger wont start after sitting


check the fuel pump and see is working properly, if the pump is good than the problems will be the crank sensor is faulty. what crank sensor does it sense the turning of the flywheel and it send a single to ecu, and ecu send a flow of power to turn on the fuel pump as long it sense the flywheel turning.

Bike sometimes will not start. then will die


Check the igintion switch tracing the wiring for the pump..there could be a problem there....a contact problem.
Not a bad idea to spray WD-40 to the contact point of the switch.
Hope this helps!

Its your fuel pump if you can't hear it. And its inside your tank. Not a hard fix if you have a book that tells you how to remove it. Alot of procedures to follow to get it right. And yes it does work off a relay.

Possible fuel pump??


What is the year, make and model? One thing you can do to see if the problem is the fuel pump is to hook up a fuel pressure guage on the fuel rail located on the top o the engine. The valve that you hook the guage up to loos similar to the valve stem on a bike tire or car this will tell you if you are getting fuel pressure or not. Another common problem is the fuel pump relay which can sometimes go bad. This is usually located near your fuse block and they cost around $20 dollars depending on which application requires them. Keep me posted.
