Question about 1992 Yamaha TDM 850

1 Answer

1981 Yamaha 850 special, started fine, brougt home, won't start

I traded a guy on craigslist for this bike. He fired it up at his house it ran great. I brought it home in the back of my truck and now I can't get it to run. I charged the battery, have the key turned on, have it choked. It won't start with electric start or kick start. I pulled the plugs and cleaned them, but it didn't help. Just curious what I might be doing wrong. Thanks in advance.

Engine will not start.Was running great one day ,Next day just would not start Checked for spark...seems ok.Checked for fuel ,seems okay Not sure about fuel pump.Put the fuel into a jar and fuel comes...


try a little starting fluid in a carb see if fires if the bike fires up then dies then start checking for fuel line from tank to carb for flowing if it gets down to the carbs and not flowing (not sure if your bike includes a auto fuel shut off or not) but the problem could reside in this location otherwise there could be water in the fuel bowls in which case you drain the cups hope this helps to trace down your problem

V star 1100 05' starting problem


Hi Bullsport,

This problem occurs on too much starter cranking i.e. the engine doesnt respond or fire up at a go.
Try to check the bike's spark plugs.
Probabley it needs a good tune up ( the bike).

Good luck.
