Question about 2008 Yamaha YZF-R125

1 Answer

Motor starts but cut out after a couple of minutes. Doesn't seem to matter how many revs. Fuel guage shows 2 bars, so fuel shouldn't be an issue.

I've had the same problem mate.

Engineer thinks it's the carburettor or electrics. Bike's off to the dealership for repairal under warranty. Your bike should still have it's warranty provided you haven't made any engine mods, in which case it should just go back to the dealer and they're obliged to fix it free of charge.
Firstly though, if your bike is less than a year old you'll still have Yamaha Breakdown Cover which came free of charge with the bike. Call them on 0800246855 UK. They'll send an engineer out to take a look and try to solve the problem on the spot, if they can't they'll take it to your nearest dealer, free of charge.
If your free 1yrs breakdown cover has expired, it's worth paying the £70 when you phone them to carry it on. They're service is phenominal.

Hope this helps and let me know how you get on.

Fuel system running rich


Sounds more like it's running lean. Have you checked fuel pressure at the rail? Could be the filter. Also try pulling the vacuum line off the regulator to see if the diaphragm is split and leaking fuel into the manifold.

This may sound like a dumb question, but did you mix the fuel and put it in the machine? If so, you shouldn't have. 4 strokes don't take mixed fuel. You must put the SAE 30 Oil (Not 2 cycle Oil) in a different chamber. Let me know, PLEASE!

Doesn't sound like you've considered spark. Sounds like you're losing spark somehow. You seem to know your way around a truck, so I don't have to explain every little thing. Just check all the ignition stuff, go through the distributor and coil and plugs and wires. If it's gettin fuel, its either a spark issue or air/vaccum issue. Hope this helps.

Not enough information, but there are two things I didn't read about you checking. Make sure the fuel quick connection on the engine (and possibly the fuel tank) is locked all the way in first, Then see if your fuel pump is working. Disconnect the fuel line from the carb and, holding it in a gas can, have someone turn on the ignition. If It's an electric pump, it should start running fuel, if mechanical, they'll have to crank it a little to get fuel going. If you get plenty of fuel that way, your float in the carb could have gotten stuck, or something in the line got into it.

Will not run under load, seems to be starving for fuel. When I leave it for a minute or two, I can start it and work with it for a minute or so then it sees to over rev before cutting out. If I start it...


Check the fuel filter in the tank for plugging. Check the fuel lines for kinks, rotting, or splits. Check the muffler and air cleaner for plugging. Make sure all the screws and mounting nuts are tight on the carburetor. When these things look ok, then turn the H needle jet CCW about 1/2 turn, start the engine and let it warm up. Open the throttle fully--the engine should be 4-stroking now. Proper adjustment is when the engine will 4-stroke, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. You may need to turn the H needle somewhat CW to achieve that condition. Hope this helps!

Cuts out on high revs 240 chain saw


Many saws made today are using electronics for engine control. If the engine rpm's starts to rev to high, the electronics in the coil will start to 'cut out' some of the spark. This is normal in this senerio.

But, now the real problem causing the senerio;

Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
5) replace gaskets/diaphragms
b) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb

Is it a turbo? You may be having a fuel-cut issue. Has teh problem happened since? If this only happens once is a while, it will be hard to diagnose.

My Kawasaki Z 750 (2005) won't start. Starter


If the Tach is showing some RPMs then it must be turning the motor over, if the bike is just coming out of storage it may be gummed up in the fuel system. try turning the fuel petcock off and then on a couple of times. try to start the bike. Failing that, you may have to drain the fuel and replace it with new fuel.
if neither of these work you may have to consult a local mechanic for a spark test and fuel test.
