Question about Yamaha Motorcycles
YAMAHA YZF R1 2000
A little more information is needed here. Is the bike turning over? Is the starter motor turning the engine over but not starting? Is it sputtering or coughing or backfiring?
Was it running and then just stopped? has it been sitting for a while and now won't start?
Engines need fuel, air, compression and spark to fire. Try the following. Try to start it and then:
1. pull the spark plugs. Are they wet? can you smell gas? If not you probably are not getting fuel to the engine for it to start. This bike probably has fuel injection. On many FI bikes, when you turn it on you can hear the fuel pump turn on. do you hear that? Look at the fuse box and see if you have a blown fuse for any critical functions such as fuel pump, ignition, etc.
How do the spark plugs look? Are they corroded and black and burned looking? Fouled spark plugs. Try replacing them. If they are whitish and look as if the metal as eroded away your engine is running lean and you need new plugs but also need to address running too lean or you will burn up your engine.
2. If spark plugs are wet you are getting gas. hold the base of the spark plug against metal such as the engine and press the starter. You should see a spark on the plug if it is properly grounded. If you don't see a spark then either your plugs are bad or you aren't getting spark due to a dead battery or a problem between the battery and the spark plug such as fuse box or an issue with chip that controls the engine.
3. How old is the battery? If you are having battery issues you probably can't run the starter but you might be having issues there as well.
4. If the bike is sputtering and backfiring it is probably a timing issue. I don't know your model of bike but I am pretty sure the timing is controlled by a chip. That may have issues or again, maybe a fuse that controls elements of the ignition system has blown. Are there any wires that have broken or have exposed metal that could be shorting? Any of the leads to the FI system come undone?

THE OPERATION OF THE CLUTH ON HIS MODEL IS OF CABLE TYPE, IF THE CLUTCH IS OPPERATING CORRECTLY THE 1ST THING TO CHECK WOULD BE THE CABLE, REMOVE THE CABLE YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO PULL THE INNER WIRE SMOOTHLY TO AND FRO, IF YOU NEED TO USE ALOT OF EFORT TO DO THIS THEN YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE CABLE,MAKING SURE YOU HAVE ADEQUIT FREE PLAY AT THE LEVER WHEN RE FITTED. OBSERVE THE ROUTE THE CABLE TAKES BEFORE REMOVAL AND REPLACE IN THE SAME WAY, YOU MAY ALSO TRY TO GET SOME LITE OIL DOWN THE CABLE, THOUGH I SUSPECT THIS WILL BE ALMOST INPOSSIBLE IF IT IS THIS TIGHT TO OPPERATE
