Question about Yamaha 12V Air Pump

1 Answer

I just got water in my waverunner XLT1200. I filled it up and left the dock with the gascap off! I slowed down while trying to put the cap back on, I estimate that about a cup or more went into the gas tank. What can I do??

Bite the bullet and drain the gas tank...its not as bad as it sounds water will sink to bottom of fuel tank and likely get sucked up into carbs even if only intermitenly... change your fuel filter and spray the fuel lines as clean a possible...

It Runs but has very little power,quits often,if you give it to much throttle it bogs down

Robert, First try new plugs, check fuel filter, sounds like it could be carburetor/injector issue, dirt,plugged jet, etc. Remove and clean/rebuild carb./injector.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Why is my gascap light on?

The "gascap" warning tells you that there is a leak somewhere in the fuel tank, fill neck, or gas cap that is preventing vacuum from developing in the tank. If you are certain that your gas cap is good, the second most likely culprit is the fuel fill neck gasket was compromised during the accident, or that there was unnoticed damage to the gas tank which is not allowing a vacuum to develop inside the tank.

Yamaha xl 1200 waverunner crankcase filled with water ! how do we save this motor?

plugs out and crank the water out , put your finger over plug holes as you do this and will help purge water from crank ! Plug caps away from plug holes !! have a battery jump pack ready as will take a while ! if plugs ok then clean with carb/brake cleaner once most water is out then put a sqwert of fuel in each cyl then plugs in hand tight and get cracking coz if left too long crank etc already rusting ! DONT STOP till you got it running as you will have to clean the plugs several times ! Try all three plugs at first then if struggling two plugs and one out with rag over hole and plug cap away safe from plug hole so not to spark fuel !!!! NO SMOKING !!! Fire extinguisher handy !!! once running ON ALL THREE CYL'S , not one or two as you can sieze the engine take to lake and give a good run and making sure all cyls working ! can do this while strapped to trailer in water as long water circulating !

Have a 2003 Yamaha Waverunner XLT1200 with an exhust alram that goes off. What is wrong?

Possible Catalytic Converter. If still in, it will require a D-Plate.
If it has been replaced before, then the resistor chip may need replacing.

Check it out as soon as possible. You do not want this overheating on a long run.
Good luck with it.

Gascap light comes on everytime i start up the car

I had this similar problem but gascap and engine light on. I changed out the gas cap cleared codes and both were back o. Went to the dealer he insisted it was the after market gascap changed in and cleared the codes. Before I even left the lot they were both back on. Finally they found the problem they had to change out some kind of pump and canister and it fixed the problem.
