Question about 2001 Yamaha YZ 426 F
The bike hadnt been started for a long time when I brought it... finally managed to get it going, but then I changed the plug- oil and filter, now ive been kicking for days but the bloody thing just about starts every now and then- but it wont warm up - back fires and ends up stalling! help please?
The bottom end has a big weld so it looks like it has had a major problem before- but looks like it has been fixed well and has a FME ingraved into the the piston bit, above the welded bottom end (sorry and the un mechanical terms im a carpenter!) so is that an aftermarket performance piece? and could this be making it harder to start thamn normal?
So you replaced the plug with the same exact plug you took out only new?
and you changed the crank case oil?
and the air filter?
it sounds like the carb may be dirty or clogged with sediment from sitting.
take the carb off and remove the float bowl. blow the jets out with air and make sure there is nothing clogging it up.
also, take the tank off and make sure the coil wire is secure and the coil is tight. check other wiring while your in there.
there is a wire loom that runs from the coil to the ignition inside the cases, check that wiring and take the cover off the ignition plate and see if there is oil fowling the electrical. clean it also. you can use electricaal parts cleaner
get a can of carb cleaner so when you have it apart you can spray it to clean.
also if you spray a squirt of quik start in the air filter just before you kick it if it has spark it will try and start.
