SOURCE: 1980 z250c bike turns over

Possibilities are; handlebar kill switch is grounding out, kick stand kill switch is broken or needs adjusting, a bad spark plug, power wire to ignition has come unplugged, bad ignition switch, ignition system needs service, coil or coil wire has gone bad. This list is in sequence of likelihood.

1980 Yamaha XS 400 Special First, How do you tell if it has an electronic ignition? Second, Can't get it to start. Have put gas in spark plug holes. Didn't hit. Bike has been setting on a dirt...


First, you need a good battery. The bike does have electronic ignition. Soak the carbs in denatured alcohol for two hours after removing the float bowls, then clean with spray cleaner. Spray into every large and small hole you can find. Remove the rubber diaphragm from the center of carb prior to cleaning. New diaphragms are $196 each. Check all fuses. Put in new spark plugs, NGK-BP7ES. Clean the air filter. Get a can of spray starter fluid and spray on the air filter. The rubber mounts for the carbs are likely to be a problem once it gets running. It looks like they are still available at Babbitt's, $53 each. If un-carburetored air can get into the joints it will lean the fuel mix and cause uncontrollable high idle.

Before you sink a lot of money into the bike, check for spark. If spark is present, coast the bike down a good sized hill without any spark plugs being installed. Put the bike in 3rd gear as you go downhill then let the clutch out to turn the engine over. Now ( using the clutch lever ), shift through all the gears then neutral. If the bike will not shift properly it likely has a bent shift fork. I can't find any forks avaiable. With a bad tranny I would put it back in the dirt floor building and find a newer bike. Here is a link to Babbitt's. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

My Kawasaki Z 750 (2005) won't start. Starter


If the Tach is showing some RPMs then it must be turning the motor over, if the bike is just coming out of storage it may be gummed up in the fuel system. try turning the fuel petcock off and then on a couple of times. try to start the bike. Failing that, you may have to drain the fuel and replace it with new fuel.
if neither of these work you may have to consult a local mechanic for a spark test and fuel test.
