Both seized.
For the gas tap, spray CRC lube on it, leave for an hour then gently use grips to move it.
For the clutch, need to know if its the cable or interanl clutch. Disconnect cable from engine and try, if OK its internal. If its clutch cable remove from bike and try to spray / fill cable and leave elevated for and hour / day. Then start see sawing cable to free up.

I was given a 2000 yamaha DT 125 and i was told needs regular fuel and 2t oil but i dont know the combination or how much mix to the gasoline please help

Are you sure this is a DT 125 as with this particular bike it is self mixing there should be a separate tank by the handle bars just under the front plastics opposite the water tank this is where you fill it with oil then just put gas in the gas tank and it will mix it self you do not have to do anything else do not put oil in the gas tank with the gas mixing would usally be dirt bikes or really old bikes only

How do I fill up my dirt bike motorcycle with the quick 2 mix oil/gas mixer

Find out how many gallons your motorcycle tank holds. Do a little research on the manufacturer and model of your dirt bike. Also find out what ratio between oil and gas is required. Then, do a little math, and find out how much oil to add to each tank. Add the oil. Then add the gas. Adding the gas last will help stir up the oil in the tank.

My intruder 125 lost power last night, it idled ok but wouldn't pull away in 1st gear and stalled, i gave it some revs in nuetral and there was a loud bang! it went ok after that!!!

Sounds like it got a little dirt in the carb and was blocking a fuel jet. As the engine runs OK on the idel jet but thwe main had something in it, As you reved the engine it was too lean as the jey was clogged but the lean engine backfired and the resulting pop dislodged the dirt and now everything is back to normal. being careful where you get your fuel and cleaning the filter screen in the gas tank and any inline filters may help. If your bike sits for a long time it's a good idea to fill it all the way up before you park it. of course it does'nt always work out this way and as the gas evoraperates it'll leave deposits in the fuel lines and carborater and as these get washed up with the freash gas it can get stuck in things. The dried fuel will dissolve in the freash gas, and the bike will go back to normal.

My 1974 kawasaki ke 125 is leaking gas out the bottom of the engine. what is wrong with it?

Several things could be wrong. First, the fuel petcock (valve) at the bottom of the gas tank should be turned off when the bike is not being ridden. Also, it is possible the valve may not be fully shutting off the gas. This can allow the carb to overflow and leak gas. A stuck open or punctured float in the carb bowl can cause overflow. The float should be light as a feather and have nothing inside it but air. Is the carb securely mounted?

Check for cracked fuel hose or bad connections at the tank and carb. Is the fuel valve body leaking gas where it mounts to the tank? Heck, with the bike being 36 years old the tank may be leaking at a weld or due to rust through. I wish I could work on your bike. The older bikes are more fun to work on than the newer bikes. Post a reply and let me know what you find.

I need to remove old gas from the tank. How do i do that

First, with your gas off, unhook the fuel line from the carb and route it into a container. turn the gas back on and allow it to drain as much as it will. Now, lay the bike on it's right side and remove the 2 bolts that hold the petcock to the tank. Remove the petcock(gas valve) and stand the bike up- catching the little bit of gas that comes out in a cup. One more time, lean the bike to the left and catch the last remaining bit out of the petcock hole. If you take the tank off first, this is alot easier.
