Four things make a bike not fire: poor fuel delivery, fuel pump or clogged fitler or jets; spark- coils going bad, compression problem, or low battery voltage, 12.5v nominal.. bikes will start with 12.2v though. if your bike will pushstart and then sputters, it might just be the battery. try a trickle charge for about 8 hours, if it runs good, then you know its the battery. Everytime i've had this problem i changed the battery and it worked fine, except on one of my pickup coils was fried! if you have a carburated bike, i would recomend pouring in half can of seafoam into 3 gallons fuel and pushstart it.check for a glogged fuel filter in fact take it out and clean it and pour seafoam directly in the filter and into the main fuel might sputter for a will because its cleaning out the jets! ride it for at least a good 20 miles to work it though the system. also have you check your fuel pump fuse?

My 1992 yamaha virago 750 quit firing were should i start to solve this promblem

First and foremost, check your "Stator" I have an 89' XV750 and had to deal with the same issue. I put a light kit on the bike not thinking anything about power drain. Then my stator went out. After I replaced my stator, it was fine after I installed some LED volt limiters(resisters) witch are very easy to install.

No Spark on TTR 125 L

Ignition Coil Problem or the CDI. Check for both. Replace the spark plug with a new one for diagnostic purposes.. check also for the wire. I recommend using split fire wires as they're heavy duty. Check that the wires are making contact with the spark plug up to the starter relay to the battery.

From what I've heard and read it is a great bike with the exception of poor spring rates from the factory. Almost every one seems to agree that it needs stiffer springs.,,
