Question about 2003 Yamaha XVS 250 Dragstar
Posted by Anonymous on
The green neutral wire is usually located by the sprocket, perhaps the wire or sensor got damaged by the chain. If the bike can't detect neutral, it will stall when the kickstand is down for safety reasons.

That's just clutch drag. The parts turning in cold oil will spin the rest of the clutch if there is no force stopping them, like having the wheel off the ground. It is much less pronounced with warm oil, but it is always there in a wet clutch system. Nothing to worry about.

If it has been sitting for a while I strongly recommend you remove the carburetors and clean them thoroughly, you will need to make sure you remove all the jets, especially the pilot jets because that is the smallest jet in the carb that will plug and it is often the one that will prevent the engine from starting.
Try using some WD40 in the back of the carbs when you try to start it after you clean the carbs. I don't like to recommend starting fluid because it is volatile and can easily catch on fire if the engine backfires.
I'd also recommend replacing the spark plugs as well. Make sure you have good fire. (turn the motor over with the plugs out and grounded on the head to make sure you can see the spark)
I also recommend pouring a small amount of Marvel Mystry oil down each spark plug hole to help "reseal" the rings. Remember that sitting is not your friend and you may have to get the rings back to life by using the special oil.
Just remember you need three basic elements to make an engine run:
Let me know if you have any further questions.

Hi there fellow XVS dragstar owner!
I had the same problem before. It is usually caused by the wrong jets installed. have it Replaced with the standard jets that came with it... this will solve the problem on acceleration. Make sure the fuel and air mixture knob is set to 2.5 turns-out from full close. clean the spark plugs.. better, replace it with a new one to ensure clean burning of fuel. also, use unleaded gas. this burns better.
hope this helps

There is a tiny switch at the clutch lever housing assembly, the wires that are on tht switch may hve been distrubed unknowingly whilst you were refitting the cable.
Not bad too if you can check the switch which has a tiny protusion towards the clutch lever, it may probabley need a little adjusting or cleaning,spray some WD40 to it.
To access it from the lever side , it would be best to remove the clutch lever.
Hope this helps!

The neutral switch is lockated at the left side of the engine. Should have a blue wire... Comes together with a black wire ( oil pressure switch ) in a 2-position connector to the main harness.
Try if works fine with the blue wire at the ground and loose. If then everything is OK, the neutral switch is out of use.
There is also a diode set in the circuitry. With a green wire coming from the side stand switch, the blue wire from the neutral switch and a lightblue wire going to the dashboard. +12V on this light blue wire should lit up neutral lamp at the dashboard.
Hope it helps.
