If your bike idles fine with the choke off but dies with 1/4 to full throttle position you likely have a vacuum piston stuck or an air intake/filter blockage. Pull out the air filter and inspect the air box and snorkel. Loosen the carburetor to airbox boots and pull the airbox towards the back of the bike. You should be able to sneak a finger around to push up the vacuum piston. If it is stuck, use a mild solvent like WD-40 or gasoline to break it loose. Don't use carburetor cleaner, it will ruin the vacuum piston diaphragm at the top. Drain the float bowls into a clear container to check for water and debris. If this doesn't fix it, you'll need to take the carbs off and take them to a mechanic for an overhaul.

My ttr acts like it starting and dies i changed the spark plug just sputters longer before it dies


Hmmmm does the bike idle fine? Or does it bog and miss fire? Either way it could be running rich ( too much gas) or it could have bad gas in it pending if and when you last drained the tank and filled it

Bike sputters


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables misaligned or misrouted.
2. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
3. Inlet system air leak.
4. Vacuum piston malfunction.

6. Plugged bowl vent.
7. Fuel level in bowl too low.
8. Restricted fuel supply passages.
9. Plugged jets or passages.

I doubt the battery would cause such an issue. It actually sounds like it could be water (condensation) in the fuel. I would suggest trying dry gas before you do anything else.

Bike is sputtering when give it gas. sat for 2


Make sure battery is full,not just charged. if the sputter is still there you may need to clean air filter,fuel fillter or carbs may need to have trash removed from inside at the fuel float valve-seat and jet.

You drained the tank but did not drain the carbs. Plugs should not need to be changed. Contact your states weights and measures department. There is groundwater and trash getting into the fuel storage tanks. Gas may be leaching into th soil.

A "very helpful" rating here? < < And it doesn't cost anything extra!

Bike is sputtering in high 2nd/3rd gear, best kind in idle


Sounds like a lean condition. Spark plug should be a tan brown.
I would say the carb probably wasn't drained prior to storage and your main jet is gummed up. Gas deteriorates very quickly especially in vented containers like the float bowl of a carb.
clean your carb for sure.

Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Set the idle speed with the idle screw. This process should get you back on the road.


Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Carburator problem


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand would suggest a rebuilt/clean of the carbs. A temporary workaround would be to switch off the fuel petcock, remove the fuel hose, partially drain the carbs and spray into the fuel hose (going into the carbs) injector/carb cleaner. Reinstall fuel hose, turn on fuel. Remove the air filter and start the bike. After warmup, rev while spraying injector/carb cleaner into the opening where the air filter should be. Get a hard paper/board (such as a folder) cut to a size bigger than the air filter but would fit inside the opening of the airbox. Rev/pump the bike slowly building the RPM at about 4~5K suddenly cover the opening (with the board) to fully choke the carbs while maintaining throttle. Before the engine dies, remove the cover. Spray again while revving. Repeat choking/spraying several times. The idea is for the vaccum to draw the clog/blockages.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
