SOURCE: 1997 yz 125 wont start, please help

2 stroke bike are very dependent on compression. and being a bike that is 12 years old my best educated guess is that the top end needs to be rebuilt. i usually have to have the top end done on my honda about every three years.

SOURCE: yz 250 wont kick start

Hi andersondts.

To get you right there i believe it should read as 'jump' start and not 'bump' start ...:-)
Well the problem could be with the battery, is it a maintenance free (dry) or is it a wet 0ne (uses sulphuric acid specific gravity 1250).
( 1) How old is the battery?
( 2) If its a wet one ,check the specific gravity of the acid in it, if its low thn charge it.You may hve to add or top up to its required level , if so thn use distilled water only !
( 3) If the battery is more thn 17months old ...replace it.
( 4) Its not bad to get the charging rate of your bike to make sure that it is working properly as required.

I hope this will help.
GOOD -LUCK.

Knight.

check your compression I had a 94 yz that done that when i checked the compression it was really low so I put new rings on the piston and that's all it took to bring her back to life

SOURCE: while riding my yz 125 it just died and won,t kick up again

  • If a hole in the piston then install new piston and rings. Next, clean the carbon off the head and install a new head gasket.
  • If cylinder wall is scared the piston has seized up. Pull the cylinder off and take it to the dealer. Have them bore the cylinder and return it along with a new oversize piston and rings.
  • While at the parts counter, get a new stock spark plug and a supply of Yamalube Two Stroke Motor Oil. You need to add 4 ounces per gallon when filling up. This will be a 32/1 gas to oil ratio. NEVER ride the bike without at least the needed 32/1 mix.
Please rate the solution as a "FixYa" if able. Thanks!

SOURCE: crack in my yz 125 2001 crank case

You know aluminum can be welded very successfully now, so best bet is to remove that case and take it in to a good welder..You can ry the quick fix (JB Weld) is what i recommend, but success is rare !....good luck to you my friend...Tim
