Question about 2003 Yamaha TT-R 125 E

2 Answers

I have a 2000 yamaha ttr90. When tring to kick start it. It sometimes will have full compression and starts right up. Other times it will kick over and have no compression. It feels like im not getting any thing. I took off the side cover and checked to see if every thing is turning when it is being kicked over and it is just no compression. If i push in on the clutch pack a little it gets full compression and will start. Other times it will not and the clutch basket will turn but the clutch packstays still and i have no compression. what could be going wrong?

I had the same issue with my 2005 TTR90. The friction plates were glazed. Check the friction plates. If the are black and glazed, they should be replaced. For a quick test, rub the friction plates gently with sand paper to rough it up a bit. If you put it together and it works, then you have the same problem as I did. Note that, this is not a fix, you do have to replace the friction plates.

Does it feel like your kickstarter is slipping perhaps?

Check the spline teeth on the kick start pedal.

It's possible it's the shaft that slipping and not that you're not getting compression, since that would normally be constant, or not. I don't think you have a compression release but it's possible. I had the TTR250 (and loved it). Check on the top of the cylinder and see if you see a small cable being moved. I've usually only seen this on larger CC models, and not the smaller units like a 90, but worth checking.

If your kickstarter pedal is slipping then you may just need to tighten it, if it hasn't slipped/shaved off too much of the splines. If it's the shaft that's slipping that's going to be a bigger job replacing.

Good luck!!

three things needed for internal combustion engine to run 1 fuel 2 spark and 3 compression if you have first two i would do a compression test also if it's a timing belt motor maybe belt broke compression teat will determine this as well as checking belt

2001 Yamaha TTR90 hard to start cold


My guess would be that you have dried out seals/gaskets taking away from the overall compression. This will either get better with use as everything lubes up or you will have to replace all that are leaking.

Why is my Yamaha Banshee is hard to start


It looks like your compression is too low (worn rings from dusted motor) Push starting spins the motor faster than kick starting and when hot the rings expand just enough to seal off. Before kicking a cold motor try putting in a squirt or two of engine oil in the plug hole to see if there is a difference.

Very hard to kick start


i dont know what your timing is relevant to flicking the compression switch and kicking, but get the engine to the compression stroke and then as you go to kick it hard, flick the switch at that moment. timing is everything. i had an old yamaha tt 500 that kicked back so hard my foot slipped off the kick start and kick lever came up and took the skin off my shin.. it took quit a bit of time to get the timing but once i did, it was easy.. hope this helps.

Yz 250 wont kickstart


Hi!
You obviously look after your machine and very sensible when laying up, however as you are probably aware 2 strokes rely heavily on compression, A. to produce excellent combustion and B. to draw fuel into the chamber. So when you try kick starting you can't get enough revolutions to draw the correct amount of fuel into the cylinder, where as you push start you constantly turn over the engine increasing compression slightly and bingo it fires.
Can you remember how when kick starting it before this problem the feel on resistance when kicking over? has it now become a lot easier? if so you possibly have worn or broken compression piston rings.
A compression test will reveal this, I hope this sorts your query?
