Question about Yamaha DT 125 R Motorcycles

1 Answer

Cuts out at higher revs

Had a fault with the cdi unit so have managed to source and change the unit. The bike now runs smoother. However at higher revs the bike cuts and stalls. As soon as the bike stops you can kick it over and start teh engine without a problem, but once it has been running for half a mile or so it cuts out again

Sounds like you have a fuel delivery problem. First check to see if there is a inline filter from the fuel tank to the carburators that is partially plugged. If not, you will have to remove the fuel valve from the fuel tank and clean the screens on the fuel pick-up tubes. The only other thing that would cause a fuel delivery problem would be the vacuum line from the carburators to the fuel valve has a split causing insufficient vacuum to open the fuel valve.

SOURCE: dt 230 low on power.bike gets half revs then runs

Hi there, you likely still have the restrictor in the exhaust header. Mine was the same, they are shipped like that as standard. Take the exhaust off the engine and remove the the concentric tube that's in there (you need to cut it out). Instant +100% power, if that is your problem.

SOURCE: bike running rough at lower revs

If the bike sat without being used over the winter It could be bad gas. if gas sits without being used for an extended period of time it destabilizes and gums up carborators and fuel injectors, you need to add a fuel stabilizer to gas when storing for winter. To fix the problem the gas has to be drained from tank, then refil with fresh gas and appropriate amount of carborator/fuel injector cleaner/treatment. Then start the bike and let it run it should clean itself out and start running smooth. If bike did not sit unused for winter its possible they installed the wrong plugs sometimes they talk you into spending more money on platinum or split fire/gimmick plugs (always use the exact same plug that came in the bike when it was new!!!!!)

fuel air is my first thoughts

  • NOTE: A rich problem gets worse as the engine heats up.

  • NOTE: A lean problem gets better as the engine heats up.

Had to replace the CDI but now the scooter wont start. I have another miler. That bikes CDI works fine. When i put this new CDI on that bike, it will start but not rev, it cuts out.


Hi, Carl1963uk for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

Hi my suzuki gz 125 wont idle correctly and when i rev the engine it just dies down and cuts out i cant even achieve a stable idle speed


I had this problem today with my bike and after much ado I discovered there was oil in the air filter box... check your oil level it could be too full. Mines was and the excess oil was blown into the air filter box and as a result contaminated the air filter. Spent today cleaning the filter box, carb and draining and changing oil, could not get a new air filter today so ran it without onebike runs like new!! New air filter will be here Monday!

Check your CDI on the other bike is a good option. if it was perfect before the CDI change then the new CDI is the only variable.
Wont be shimming.the valves need to wear to change that setting, and the bike has been sitting.
Sounds like its sucking air after the carby once over, but the balancing would have picked that up.
But how did you balance them if its idling at 5000rpm?
Recheck the carb once over,and balance, and make sure the fuel and vacumn tubes are in correct positions. check the throttle cable is replaced correctly
I assume it is running on all cylnders.

Ok i just got a 2004 crf 70. i have taken carb apart twice and cleaned every jet ect... problem is when wide open it cuts out spits and spudders. I have changed settings on throttle cable and swapped out...


Could be that you need to go up one jet size.
When choking a motor, your richening the mixture with more fuel, less air.
So if you must choke it, you must need more fuel.

As for electrical. some bikes have a rev limiter when you hold the throttle wide open You may be reaching the rev limit.
A rev limiter with turn the power on/off the coil superfast, keeping the rmp at a maximum factory setting, and the motor breaks up at full throttle.
Some cdi's have and adjustment that you can set your own rev limit, or you can buy a cdi with no rev limit.
Hope this helps

Sv650 cuts out at 5000 rpm


Check for a loose or poorly connected lead from the loom exiting crankcase. There should be 7-9 wires. one of these feeds from the secondary source coil (hi revs). If all connections are 100% ignition coils secondary windings maybe shot. Ignition coil is cheap to replace. The CDI unit or black box is rarely at fault, hence the exhorbitant cost. Assuming plugs/fuel is good. Cheers.

1982 Suzuki GS850 GL will only run with the starter button held


Obviously the CDI is picking up power from the starter button. Check the ignition key switch for proper operation. Chances are that whatever fried the loom also fried part of the switch. Alternate to that, trace the wire powering the CDI system, disconnect it at the source (starter button connection), then find a power source that is live only when the key is turned on and then hook the CDI wire up there.

an I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?
