Question about 1999 Yamaha TDM 850

1 Answer

I have a yamaha tdm 850 1992 model, it runs and startds fine and does not miss a beat. over the last day it has started to cut out completely at freeway speeds. it will do approximately 10 minutes fine and then suddenly cut out. the fuel filter has been changed and appears blocakge free. after 20 minutes or so the bike starts and runs great again for another 10 minutes and the problem repeats itself. Any ideas? thanks, Matt.

Because of the higher voltages run in bikes nowdays to meet fuel regulations,spark plugs are often a big problem.Drop a new set of plugs in .It's the easiest and cheapest place to start.No dealers to rip you off.If this is not the problem,it would suprise me.Hope this helps

8. Intake air leak.

Tdm 900 goes down on one cyl in the rain


Hi, Anonymous you need "FIVE" things in order for a cylinder to run properly: and number 3 is dying to be picked
1. FUEL: in order to validate your not getting fuel spray some starting fluid into the air cleaner and hit the starter button, if it fires up and runs for a few seconds then you know you have a fuel delivery issue.
2. SPARK: remove the spark plug and with it connected to the spark plug cable ground the threads to something metal you should see a bluish white spark if not you have a faulty spark plug, spark plug cable, ignition coil, condenser, CKP, ECM, sensor or the wiring in between.
3. COMPRESSION: you must have at least 80-100 PSI for most bikes if not perform a leak down test you may have a burnt or bent valve or hole in the piston or broken rings.
4. CAM TIMING: confirm your timing marks are aligned to see if the cam chain or adjuster are worn out and the chain has skipped a couple teeth.
5. IGNITION TIMING: on older bikes check to see if your points have not closed up, timing plate has not become loose and confirm with a timing light for proper retard and advance functions, on newer bikes where timing is controlled by an ECM and is nonadjustable check you CKP, TPS, MAP, O2, sensor or it's counterpart for integrity.

Tdm 900 and cutting out in the rain or wet road


Hi Paul. Your model of TDM is known for this problem. The design of the ignition system is poor and allows moisture to accumulate, leading to loss of spark on one cylinder. The good news is that you can fix it with a little effort. You can find some advice on fixing it here: http://jbx9.free.fr/tdm/index.php?page=ISSUES#1_5

This thread on Carpe-TDM may also help: http://www.carpe-tdm.net/ipb/index.php?showtopic=15971

Best of luck. The TDM is a great bike once you have ironed out the niggles.

Starting problems


Carbs must be cleaned very well, adjust the vacuum level, the air mixture screws with a gas analyzer and the TPS (if there is one but I think not).Also recheck the valves clearances.Fuel pump ok I suppose.
