Staring problems can be a plague. First determine if it's ignition, air/fuel or compression. I always do a compression test, pressure isn't the issue, it's the difference between the cylinders, more than 10 pounds you have a problem. Next try a careful and reasonable shot of starting fluid, just a shot while spinning the engine into the air cleaner. If it begins to start immediately, you're problem is carburetor or fuel supply related (which with today's poor quality gas I see it in 60 percent of my work. Never use gas with alcohol "oxygenated", and don't leave it more than 90 days without adding a stabilizer).
If it still shows no sign of life, pull your plugs and watch your spark. I prefer using an old spark plug with a wide gap like .040, clamped with a hose clamp to a battery charger clamp. Is the spark consistent, a nice blue arc? If so, one more somewhat common thing can happen. If your starter isn't in great shape it can pull too much amperage away from the ignition system. With plugs out does the engine spin freely and doesn't bind? Right after spinning the engine for about 30 seconds feel the large positive wire that runs to your starter (or your ground wire). Is it warm? If so perhaps your starter is in need of service.

Keeps shuting down while driving, then after a few minutes it will start

I have to ask, how long since a tune-up?
Are there any applicable trouble codes?
I saw what you replaced, didn't see any testing? With intermittent issues, have to do testing when problem is ongoing. When problem is ongoing, if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check fuel injector pulse.

I would suggest not making any changes until you find out the problem. especially if the bike was running ok prior. Was the bike sitting for the winter? did you use any fuel stabilizer? Change fuel including draining carbs. Check your air intake passages for spider webs, any mouse nests,... check air filter. change your spark plugs , especially if they look black. The condition of the old spark plugs will tell you a lot. Black indicates running too rich. Whitish or next to nothing indicates too lean fuel mixture. Tanish color is perfect.

Hi there,

Looks like you're ruled out the rest except for one thing. The magneto coil. It must be faulty to have caused excessive voltage running through the sparks. The back firing can be caused by poor fuel-air mixture. Set it to 2.5 turns out from full close. and lean out the mixture as necessary. Check for oil as well since low level oil can cause heat problems thus tripping the engine.

Hope this helps,

ps. Start with the magneto mounted on the bike's engine body.

The problem is with in your spark plugs. Try to replace it with a new spark plug . The same thing happened to my bike and I did the same. When I replace the spark plugs it ran perfectly.

Hi, Try checking all your fuses first , if they are fine test the spark plug and its lead, ,possibly change the plug as well if you do that then you will know if its a spark plug problem or a lead and coil issue ,
I had one of those and they are a fun bike to ride , there is not much electrics in them and there is only a few things that can cause it so try this first

My yz wont start, changed spark plug it ran for 1/2hr then died

Couple things- 1. If the plug was dirty after 1/2 hour you have either the wrong heat range plug(too cold) or 2. a fuel/carb issue. Buy a hotter NGK plug, ask for help the numbers don't always make sense. Use only full synthetic 2 stroke (I always liked bel-ray) and fresh 93 octane fuel. When you find a plug that works good buy a case of them, 2 stokes will foul plugs period. And some advice with your solution, never head into the woods without a spare plug, they will foul at the absolute worst time.
