Clean the carb> remove the float bowl and soak the carb in de-natured alcohol for an hour. Then clean it with spray carb cleaner. Install a new spark plug, clean the air filter, get a can of spray starter fluid and give the air cleaner a shot when starting it. Check the crank shaft for worn bearings > Remove the left side cover then hold the flywheel firmly and lift up and down, left and right. If the shaft is not rock solid the bearing and seals will need to be replaced.

Bike wont start

Sometimes it helps to remove the spark plugs, clean them then warm them up with a hot air gun or similar. You'll get a stronger spark and often that is all that is needed to give it then extra boost. Failing that it's time to clean the fuel system as it may be the dried residue from old fuel blocking the flow. You should get an idea of this when you remove the plugs. If you've been trying to start it they will be wet with petrol. if not you've probably got a blockage.

2005 Yamaha 250 Rebel will not start

If you did not put in a new battery, try that. Your old battery probably doesn't charge up enough.

1999 Yamaha 1200GP Wave Runner wont' start. It has sat for about 2 years. I have new battery, new plugs and new gas, it turns over but won't start, any suggestions?

Sounds like the carbs are gummed up from the old gas sitting in them. Remove the carbs, disassemble, clean with a carb cleaner, and reassemble.

Have an '81 Yamaha Maxim. It quit running, gets air, gas, and spark. What could be going on?

If you have all three thing it should run. If the timing is off it wont run. If the compression is down it wont run. Give us some history on the bike and how it was running before this started. Did you do any work to it before this started. Let us know.
