Question about 2004 Yumbo Dakar 200

1 Answer

My Yumbo Dakar 200cc bike dies after riding in 5th gear reving medium-highish for a couple of minutes, it usually just dies after i hit the clutch (coasting), but on long runs @ around 50-60mph in 5th gear it will just stall. After stopping it will not start again, I have to wait atleast 2 minutes, then she starts again and runs fine, until you get on it and it all happens again. Any idea's? This is a 2007 and not sure what is causing it, bike has less than 1500 miles

G'day,
I have a couple of ideas what may help.
First I would think it was starving for fuel.Or maybe an unusual ignition system fault- So how do we find out?
Well-you could try checking the bike for spark immediately after the bike stops.
Remove the spark plug-Re-fit to the cap-place plug resting on metal where you can see it(DO NOT HOLD PLUG-HIGH VOLTAGE)-kick over & check for spark.If theres no spark-try a new plug but if the problem persists then the bike has a faulty ignition(coil,cap,plug,stator.ignition/kill switch,wireing)
I think it is more likely starving for fuel.
A faulty fuel tank filler cap vent or carby vent tube pinched or blocked.
To check the filler cap-ride the bike & when the problem just starts-quickly crack open the fuel tank filler cap to let air in/out. If bike runs ok then the cap is blocked.
To check the carby vents -just look at them & make sure none are blocked or pinched.They usually come from each side of the carby & one from the bottom(usually clear or semi-clear hoses).
I hope that this helps you with your problem.
Regards Andrew Porrelli

Is there a safety switch on yumbo bikes to keep it from starting with the start button


As far as I know, there is none. You might want to check if the choke lever is set to on because if it is, it will only try to start then die.

More likely to be your ignition coils. They heat up and expand this can cause an open circuit which will close up again when it has cooled down. Although, a bad charging system may cause this problem. Check the battery voltage with engine switched off ( approx 12 volts) and with the engine running (approx 14 volts) If you are getting 14 volts then your battery is dead, if you aren't, then your charging system has a fault.

My Harley 883 Sportster suddenly became stuck in 5th gear.


More than likely the shifter pawl has broken. Breaking in 5th gear is kind of unusual however, they usually break between first and second.

You'll have to remove the outer primary cover to look at the shifter pawl. It's partially covered by the clutch assembly.

2003 Yumbo Dakar Motorcycle -only 527 miles - will not start!!!


  • Nice looking bike. Yumbo Dakar is not a bike I have ever worked on but I will try to help.Remove the air filter and look into the carb as you twist the throttle. Does the slide open and close as it should? Open the slide and spray starter fluid into the carb bore as the electric starter is used. Not starting? NEXT >
  • Drain the carb just to see that it is filling with gas.
  • Remove the flywheel cover and put a timing light on the bike. Use the starter button and see if the timing marks are on. The CDI could be bad or the cam chain could have jumped.
  • Remove the cylinder head cover. Turn the flywheel to TDC compression. Look at the OHC gear. There should be two marks positioned parallel with the head surface, (or an '0' at the top of the gear and in line with the centerline of the crankshaft). Are the valves in time?

Yumbo wont start


• The first thing to do with ANY engine that has sat for any longer than a couple of months is to dump ALL the fuel in the tank and carb(s). ALL OF IT !! You'll want to refill with some high priced fuel that has fuel system cleaners (Like Chevron with Techron) not becasue you need high-test fuel, but because you need the cleaners. It's ether that or disassemble the carbs and clean out jets you can't find much less see. Your choice. The carb kits alone will cost you about $50 so a tank of high-test is looking pretty good, huh?

• Now the fact that you tried to crank the engine with old fuel has fouled the sparkplugs. Go buy a new sparkplug.

• If your bike has a vacuum fuel valve, then you'll also need to set the valve to "Prime".
