Question about 2011 Yamaha TW200

1 Answer

I went and l looked at the bike. It had 1.3 miles on it in the showroom. It wouldn't turn over so they drained the gas and cleaned the carb. It was running when they drove it out to me but when I was revving the motor it bogged down a bit. Should I not buy this bike or is it something minimal?

Have the jets cleaned. ethonal in gas will clog the jets. Carb cleaner will keep them clear for a short spam.

2002 Shadow: bike leaks gas from the carb, and runs with no gas going to it


Carbs have a reservoir in the base that will last for a few miles before it is drained. So turning the fuel off doesn't starve the engine immediately. This is normal.

2000 Buell Blast runs great around town. Freeway speeds runs for 3 to 5 miles then out of nowhere dies. Acts like it's running out of fuel then dies. I have pulled the carb and cleaned the jets. C


If it starts up after sitting for a few minutes, (like 2 or 3) it could have a plugged fuel filter or the gas tank strainer built into the fuel valve could be plugged too. Drain the gastank anyway and change the gas with fresh. can't hurt. If it takes 15-30 minutes or after the bike cools some I would look at an ignition coil. Check to see if it has spark next time it quits.

2000 yamaha r6. has trouble starting, day or night. usually takes between 7 or 10 tries. also rode it for 12 miles on the freeway. got home turned it off to open the gate. then wouldn't start back up.


Sounds like your pilot circuits on your carbs are dirty. Buy a can of "SeaFoam" pour 1/2 of the can in to a full tank of gas, use the 1/2 on the next tank of gas. This stuff works good and will clean the entire fuel system, valves & combustion chambers. Replace your spark plugs with a new set of ngk cr10ek gapped at .0255. Check your charging system and rectifier to insure proper voltage. Clean terminals and inspect wirining harness and connectors for any corrision. Make sure your air filter is clean. Check for vacuum leaks around carb mounts & cylinder head...This will usually take care of the hard starting conditions on the R6. I hope this helps...good luck with your bike.

Hello. I have a 1999 Suzuki Intruder VS1400. Used fairly regularly, but by no means every day. Recently bike is stalling at low speeds, seemingly not as a result of the idle setting, which is fully turned...


It sounds like its time to have the carbuerator cleaned more then likely you have some varnish build up in the idle circuit. I cant remember if that bike has a fuel filter in line from the tank but if it does I would recommend changing that first as it could simply be starving the motor of fuel at idle.

My Sabre only went 100 miles on one tank when it went 150 miles last season on a tank. Any ideas as to why?


If you did not prep the bike for long term storage , the gas in the carb has turned to varnish and the jets are glogged up. Take them apart, clean with PB Blaster and carb cleaner. Then use an air gun to finish cleaning the jets and carb housing.

Bike sputters with no throtle when trying to start. If any throtle or choke is used bike will not sputter at all. If starting fluid is used bike will start. I've changed plugs ,new gas and cleaned air...


Hi
Check/replace inline fuel filter. Put a fuel injector/carb cleaner fluid in the tank and run it through, this will clean any build up that may be in carbs/injectors.
If problem is still persisting then you'll need to get carbs/injectors removed for cleaning and resetting. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Won't idle without choke


The pilot jet controls the air/gas fuel mix at idle . If the jet gets plugged up not enough gas gets to the emgine at idle. You will need to remove the carbs and float bowls and clean them, paying special attention to the pilot valve. Count the number of turns to remove the pilot screw and replace the same number of turns then turn counter clockwise 1/2 turn.

Went to reserve fuel - then motor backfiring and loss of power -


Condensation in the gas tank collects at the fuel petcock. Get enough water in there and it gets into the carbs. ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there 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 carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom 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. 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.
Put the carb back together and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

Gas pours out of bike when I turn the key


Sounds like one really crappy and dumb dealer if you ask me. Yes, they usually have gas in the tank on the showroom floor. Yes, varnish can build up while on the floor. The good thing is that cleaning a carb is not very hard.

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 idle screw and the air screw 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. This process should get you back on the road.

Yamaha TTR 125 L won't idle


this is very tipical. when bikes are stored the fuel varishes up the jets & needles. soak the carb. moving it back and forth in the soak solution. then blow every jet and orfice with a controlled air source. note: any speck of rust or dirt can plug these jets. pay attention to detail and do every thing twice. then install the carb and adjust it to your riding style. later Spike
