Question about 2002 Yamaha YZ 426 F
Got an 02 yzf426 and was recently out riding it and all of a sudden it lost power, it will still start quite easily and rev up slowly, if i try to open the throttle in neutral it stalls and is quite hard 2 start again. but if i try an open up the rev when it is in gear there just doesn't seem to have any power, any idea's?
Piston may rings may be on way out. if you have a manual decomp lever make sure it hasnt tightend by itself. losen it off a bit and try again, after a few kicks with decomp in (no throttle). this happend to mine after being sat in cold weather for a week in the garage. other than that clean carb and jets, air filter ect and vavle clearance especially if you know its had more than 9 hours seat time without checking shims and seat+clearance.. check you have right jetting. also check your hot start nob for worn spring make sure its seating properly or it will be letting in to much air. good luck there a brilliant bike when running right.
