I have a 1987 yamaha warrior

It leaked gas at first then we got a new petcock for it, it stopped leaking, then a couple of days later it starts leaking again, so I rebuilt the carb, it stopped leaking, but now it is leaking again.

The only thing i can think of is that you might want to take the carb off and really clean it good where it bolts down and around the entire area if thats where its leaking from. Hope i was of some help to you.

My warrior starts but it seems like it's not getting any gas when you let go of throttle


You might want to try unplugging the parking brake sensor it helped me. it is located on the clutch lever it is the top wire that is closest to you while you are sitting on the bike. follow it down to underneath the hood disconnect it see how it runs.

6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.

2002 Yamaha Roadstar Warrior will not start


Hi, Jjs186 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enrichner.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
14. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
15. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
16. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
17. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
18. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
19. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
20. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
21. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
22. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
23. Check for engine trouble codes.

Have gas getting into crankcase, what would cause this? petcock?


Hi ,,,a petcock that is not closing can cause this, also if there is gunk in the carbs in the float needles,,will also cause this.

I have completely rebuilt the petcock but I still have a serious gas leak. Can you help?


Did you replace the vacuum diaphragm on the back of the petcock? That is usually the cause of fuelcock leaks on Yamaha's. Yamaha only offers the diaphragm in the complete petcock assembly. The only way to get a diaphragm separately is in the K&L petcock rebuild kit. Unless your leak is dirty carb/bad needle related and not petcock related.
