Question about 2001 Yamaha TW 200
I have a 1998 tw200 when I run it hard it starts to backfire then dies out everytime I ease up on the throttle. When trying to restart it acts like it's flooded, letting it sit solves the problem and it will start. The dealers want to rebuild the carb but I want to make sure this is the problem. To many times they want to rebuild carb and may not be the problem.
Back firing is commonly an indication of a lean fuel mixture, and is commonly caused by a blockage in the carb jets or fuel passages in the carb. It only takes something small to cause real problems. The flooding if that is wat is happening is most likely caused by the needle and seat not sealing. Going through the carb is not a difficult process if you have some mechanic skills, if not take it to a shop.
