SOURCE: yamaha ef 2400is starting

The manual contains a schematic which does not show a heat sensor. You need to narrow it down to a fuel or spark problem. The easiest to check is spark. If you do not have spark, it could be the plug, wire, oil level sensor, magneto, coil or TCI module. If you have spark, then it is likely a fuel problem. Open drain and see if fuel is getting to the bowl. If not, check tank, valve and lines. If yes, it must be the carburator. Good luck.

No fuel or no spark. Quick test: spray some starter fluid into air intake and try to start it. If it runs and then dies, you've got spark but no fuel. If the bike quit with no prior symptoms, check spark plug wire not knocked loose, fuel filter clogged. (You do have gas, right?)

Motor will run on starting fluid but wont stay running

Did it sit for a long time with gas in it?

Your idle jet(s)/circuit is plugged up.

When gas sits too long, the components start to separate, and it turns almost into a varnish.
This starts to plug up the jets and passages, starting with the smallest, which happens to be the idle circuit and jet.

Clean out the carb, paying attention to the jet and the passage drilled in the carb body.

Gp 800 will crank but wont start

Hi, most likely the trigger coils near the flywheel, it will still have spark but the timing may be off. Try new plugs first as they may have spark outside the cylinders but not when under compression. Regards Phil

Try some spray starting fluid.
That will prove whether or not the spark if ok.
Make sure there is gas in the carb.
The tank may be clogged or the carb float valve could be stuck.

2003 Yamaha Road Star 1600 leaks gas from underneath when I start it.

I take it when you say gas you are refering to petrol . gas leake ,don't use your bike untill its been repaired, many bikes have burst into flames through gas leakes .Remember petrol does not burn its the vapour given of that catches fire .
