Hi, Jbelluzzi and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
10. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Fuel tank empty.
14. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
15. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.
16. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
17. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.

SOURCE: back fire and dies while running at variable rpms and speeds

could be one of the ignition coils breaking down when hot, if you can (without getting burnt), remove the plug cap, place a screw driver in there holding the insulated handle and turn the engine over whilst holding it close to the engine, you should see a spark IF its ok, if not then the coil has failed. Retry when cold to confirm.

Nice bike. Your choke could be stuck next time this happens try removing air cleaner and see if it is closed. If it is try adjusting it.

Also with engine hot pull a plug put it back on the wire hold with insulated pliers to a ground on the motor and crank engine over to see if you have spark. If no spark see if coil is over heating if so it may be bad.

SOURCE: my wr starts great 1st

Hello and welcome to Fixya, First we need to make sure your getting proper fuel flow to your carb. Remove line and make sure its coming out well and not just dripping. If that seems ok, then I would remove your carb and check your float height to spec. Another thing you might check is run it and as soon as the problem occurs, remove the spark plug, put the plug cap back on and lay the plug against the cylinder or a good ground (make sure there is no gas puddles) then kick over the engine while watching your plug, if its not sparking then you may have a problem with the coil or stator. Try these and if you still are having trouble let me know and I will be happy to assist you further until we get it figured out. Thanks for using Fixya, Cycleworx157

2 cycle starts then quits


Dump the fuel. Get a good fuel system cleaner and mix up a fresh batch of fuel. Pump the primer X20 and let it stand for an hour or so. Then try starting it again. If it still dies give a couple more primings and starting until the new fuel has had a chance to circulate around the carb. Now let it sit for a few hours to let the cleaner work on the carb. Prime it and try again.

Be safe and good luck!

Lookfor a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If you see this light, that is a sign of a failed or failing antitheft system, which will disable your vehicle. This link explains

I have 97 camaro it starts and drive fine but when i shut it off it wont start back up until it sits for a few hours?


We had a problem like this in our 97 Camaro with the V6. It would run fine until my wife went somewhere with it, parked it and then wouldn't restart. When it would sit for about an hour then it would start again. It turned out to be the crank position sensor, when the electronic part of it got hot enough it couldn't sense correctly and tell the computer how to time the spark. All it would do is crank without firing. So once we had that sensor replaced it ran good again. Good luck I hope this helps! I'm on to the next problem it's having, an occasional battery drain and a radio and electric windows that die when they want to and come back later. BuzzieTN
