    It sounds like the float in the carburetor is sticking. Have you checked that? Charlie

    You might try turning both your fuel valves to off & drain your carb fuel bowls and carefully remove each fuel bowl

    recently purchased a 1979 XS1100 that is immaculate except for one problem. 2nd gear seems to be shredded. I have seen some posts on some other forums that mention 2nd gear as being a common problem and something about a problem at the factory assembly level. Does anybody have any further insight on this (and more importantly, what I might be able to do to remedy)? What exactly did you have to do to remedy your 2nd gear problem? Thanks.

'79 Super Glide. Why does it only shift down one gear?


The shift pattern is usually from neutral, down for first gear then up for all other gears. After you are in high gear you should be able to shift down multiple gears to 1st or neutral. If the motor is off you may have trouble shifting up and down.

How to fix the yamaha krypton starter not engaging the engine


Hi, Anonymous the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

I have a 79 yamaha xs750 special what kind of fluid do I put in the transmission and how much?


The transmission oil and the engine oil are the same. Use only a JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. Automotive oil uses different additives and will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. 10w-40 oil is good for cold climate. 20w-50 for hot climate/touring. Synthetic oil will make your cycle run cooler and shift easier. Your final drive uses 80/90 hypoid gear oil. Synthetic hypoid oil will reduce friction and make your final drive run cooler. You will probably need four quarts of oil . Pour in three quarts and check the oil level. Top up as needed. If changing the oil filter you will have to run the motor to get an accurate oil level reading

Im trying to find out what yamaha i have i know its a 250 registared 1977 looks like a scrambler i wish to sell it and am not sure wat its worth its not an rd350 i had to put that in model description


If it has lights, etc. it is most likely a DT250. If not it is likely an IT250
Google 1977 DT250 and look in the images to see if it matches your bike.
