Start by removing and cleaning the carb, it may not need any parts.
also change the oil, fit new air filter, new spark plug, and check the valve clearances

I have a 1998 suzuki marauder and it will turn over and fire with starter fluid, but it won't even try without it. There's gas in the lines going to the carbs but I can't figure out why it...


Hi,
has the bike sat for any length of time? If so, the carbs need cleaned. Regardless of what you put in the tank, they'll need to be removed and cleaned. Since the bike is 14 years old, I'd guess they're due.

Also, check the petcock and tank for rust.

GL,

1999 Yamaha 1200GP Wave Runner wont' start. It has sat for about 2 years. I have new battery, new plugs and new gas, it turns over but won't start, any suggestions?


Sounds like the carbs are gummed up from the old gas sitting in them. Remove the carbs, disassemble, clean with a carb cleaner, and reassemble.

1982 Yamaha Seca Turbo (XJ650LJ) Had the carbs


Mine was stored for 20 years, I ended up replacing the seat and needles, cleaning them thoroughly and when I tried starting it, nothing!! No gas was going to the carbs, it turned out to be my gas pump, it was seized by the old gas remains 'varnish' so I had to clean it numerous times, soaked it in gas cleaner (short period at a time 15 minutes or so, being a very powerful cleaner, you cannot leave it for long without causing greater problems, thus I was able to get the pump going by boosting it with my car batterie, having more cranking amps directly to the pump, the pump was able to release itself from the old crusty varnish.

Scooter sat for a year; wouldn't start; replaced battery. filled with gas. cleaned spark plug. won't start. Help


after a year sitting idle chances are that the gas inside the carb has degraded and the carb will need cleaning also when you filled the tank did you remove any old fuel? if not the its contaminated with the old gas
give it a full service new feul clean carb clean air filter then it should start

hope this helps

2002 yamaha ttr 225 idles high when let off gas but eventually idles down on its own and hard to start when cold with choke or without


Hi, David and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted, pinched or need lubrication.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
4. Air fuel mixture adjusted too lean start with 2 full turns.
5. Intake system air leak.
6. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
7. Broken throttle return spring.
8. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
9. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, sensors or wiring/connector
10. Multi carburetors not in sync.

My 2008 ttr 230 has been started in months. i purchsed a new battery and it still would not start.


The battery is only the beginning. The carbs are most likely gummed up. The idle jets are plugged, and the old gasoline in there wouldn't help. Your idle jet, (pilot jet, whichever name you prefer) is plugged up in your carburetors. If the bike was stored improperly, or old/dirty gas was in the tank, these jets get plugged up pretty easily. The idle jet is where your bike pulls gas while it has a closed throttle position. Its the smallest jet in the carbs and makes it hell to start a bike when they are plugged up. Good thing for you, is that you only have one carb, and it is very easy to take out and clean. The jets are under the BOTTOM cover of the carbs. You will see the main jet is on a Taller part of the carb and the idle jet is next to that. Here is a picture to help you, It isn't the exact carb, I borrowed this pic from another website. Number 1 is the pilot jet, 2 is the main jet and 3 is where the fuel comes into the carb. This is your float valve. This has to be clear of stuff too or it won't shut off properly and you will leak gas from the carbs. So get yourself a can of carb cleaner and start spraying!

Yamaha 2002 TTr 250


Hi hoeygatt

Look around your bike near where the throttle cable meets the engine, when you pull the throttle, the cable pulls a quarter circle piece of metal which is connected to a spring, then connected to that should be a screw, that is the idle screw, turn it very slightly, usually clockwise to make the idle higher, and this should sort out the problem.

Please remember to rate this solution as FixYa!

Trouble starting my 2003 TTR 225


how old is the gas it may have a lot of water or junk in it.drain the bowl on the carb and drain the fuel out of the tank, check the petcock screen inside the gas tank. also i would not spray start fluid into the plug hole, it could blow a hole in the top of your piston,spray a little right into your air cleaner or carb.good luck

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
