SOURCE: 2001 raptor cabs not getting gas

Ihad this problem, I let gas sit in the motorcyle over winter. Bad mistake,The whole carb needs cleaned. I took my carb to the yamaha shop and they charged me $146.00 to fix it. Or you can take the jets and needle seat out and soak it in carb cleaner for a couple of days. Yamaha soak the carb in carb cleaner for 2 or 3 days, remember to remove any plastic, gaskets, rubber.

SOURCE: engine stalls after running for 25 miles?

Sounds like a fuel or intake problem to me, start the bike and spray brake cleaner onto the intake where it goes into the head, if the bike stumbles then you have an intake leak and have to change the seals or just tighten up the intake manifold. Another thing you could do is remove the carb (if it is carburated) remove the float bowl and clean everything including the jets, you could have some **** in there that is plugging things up. Also try removing the air cleaner and spraying a can of carb cleaner into and around the carb. Also try removing the gas tank and completely cleaning it and the petcock screen out, you could have something in the gas tank that is migrating to the petcock and causing a blockage.

CHECK THE IDLE ADJUSTMENT AND CORRECT IF NEEDED. IF THIS DOESNT CORRECT THE PROBLEM, YOU MAY HAVE TO HAVEA THE CARBS CLEANED AND SYNCED. ESPICIALLY AFTER SITTING A YEAR!

Hope you drained the oil and also changed the oil filter.
This problem of cutting off is a carburator/fuel related issue.
I guess the fuel might not be pouring in to the float chambers faster enough.
Try this, remove the air -filter and thn start the engine and as it is about to cut off, block the intake(by your palm) at the carburators and see what happens...taking care not to over block it as the gas may pour out and also flood in the combustion chamber rendering it to shut off due to to much fuel.
If it does respond and stay running thn the problems is tht the carbs are not getting the gas as required and probabley you may have to recheck the float level, the float pin,carb synchro, air-fuel mixture.
Check the pet- c o c k too.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 83 yamaha enticer 300 wont start. if i use starting fluid directly into cylinders it runs and dies

Check for your accelerator pump is pumping fuel directly into the engine when you rotate the throttle, if not then you probably need a carburator fuel pump kit. (usually located on the outside of the carbs). However, through following the mechanical linkage, you can see that it leads directly to the little pump assembly as well.

Good luck my friend.

Change the gas filter. If car sat for 2 years without being started, the gas could be stale Put fuel system cleaner in gas tank. The car may need a double dose.

Hondas were known to not start if you used the wrong plug. Factory plugs were often changed to a hotter plug yo allow starting. I had the same issue with a CB175 Years ago. Switched to a hotter plug at parts dealers suggestion never had an issue again.

BATTERY DEAD MORE LIKELY.CAR BEEN SITTING FOR 2 YEARS GAS IN FUEL TANK WEAK FULL OF WATER, YOU NEED TO REMOVE DRAIN OUT OLD FUEL IN THE FUEL TANK. YOU NEED ADD NEW FUEL IN FUEL TANK,CHANGE FUEL FILTER, IF CAR BEEN SITTING FOR TWO YEARS.I WOULD REMOVE SPARK PLUGS ONE AT A TIME REMOVE EACH SPARK PLUG SQUIRT FEW DROPS OF OIL INTO CYLINDER THEN REINSTALL SPARK PLUG, REASON I SAY TO DO THIS PROCEDURE IT HELP PISTON RINGS SEAL UP ENOUGH TO BUILD UP COMPRESSION SO YOU CAN START THE ENGINE WHERE IT BEEN SITTING TOO LONG.YOU NEED CHANGE ANTIFREEZE AND THERMOSTAT.REPLACE RADIATOR HOSES TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE,REPLACE AIR FILTER.

Ran last year, won't start this year. Changed fuel and replaced spark plug. Checked spark and attempted to start with battery and tried with pull cord but no start. pulled plug and it had fuel on it so...


It might have tipped over on its side. Look at the air filter, if you see oil or gas on the filter then you might have to remove and clean the carburetor. I would start by cleaning/replacing the air filter and trying it again. If its getting fuel and the spark plug works then the only other side of the fire triangle is air.

Car wont start


If it has been sitting for 3 years it could be a number of things. First thing to try is a good tune up (plugs, wires, oil change, air filter, and fuel filter). If the plugs have fouled out they are not getting enough spark to burn the fuel. Also if the fuel itself has turned, you should try to drain the tank, this is not feasible at times and can be substituted by adding as much fresh gas as possible and a can of Octane boost/ Gas drier. SeaFoam is what I would recommend (found at your local autoparts store. If you have over half a tank of gas that has been sitting that long, you will need to find a way to drain what is in it. There are a few tricks to doing this without dropping the gas tank or sucking it out with a garden hose. Try the tune up first though.

Getting gas and fire but not starting


Change the gas. That gas is no good after a year of sitting,probably has water in it. Hopefully it didn't laquer the fuel pump pick-up screen.

It wont stay running in stalls out from time to time


Change the fuel filter,clean the carb jets again,and replace the air filter.This should take care of it but sometimes when they sit for awhile,you will need to clean the carbs numerous time as the gunk in the tank continues to wash down into the carbs.
