Question about 2000 Yamaha YZF-R1
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 occasion...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 line.it 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?
