Question about 2001 Yamaha TW 200

1 Answer

I have a 1998 tw200 it dies when I run it hard.

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.

O7 rhino 660 runs good,then backfires and stalls.starts every crank,but will run short time then stalls.does not backfire everytime.seems like it runs longer when it sets couple of days.


I would overhaul the carby and check for corrosion in the main jet and other circuits
if it is a 2 stroke I would check the crank shaft seals as they may be hard and leaking mixture and running lean ( backfiring)

1998 pontiac grand prix starts up cold and runs for about 5 minutes and starts runing bad,backfires and dies


sounds like a stopped up catalytic converter, most muffler shops ( meineke, midas ) will test them for free, but call ahead and ask.

Jeep is dying out when you hit a bump in road it starts but runs real rough and backfires 0nce in a while then dies again restarts everytime


Check the wire that feeds voltage to your ignition system. Check any connectors or plug-ins on that wire. It sounds like you have a bad connection. I've had this happen before, including on my motorcycle! Hope this helps!

Runs good til it gets hot, then backfires and sputters


Have the catalitic converter check sounds like it may be clogged. This will cause it to choke off exhaust when it gets hot
