Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others

1 Answer

I have a 1996 yamaha wave venture 1100....ran greatsat for 2 yrs..started but only ran for spray into carbs....drained fuel started and ran good. Started about month later and would only run as long as primed with starter fluids...checked fuel filter(ok)...fuel flow to fuel pump ok...output of fuel pump appears ok....but engine will only run as long as starter fluid/gas is sprayed into carbs. I don't think it's the carbs as it ran great a month ago...now it's starving for gas flow....so it appears to be a fuel delivery problem...what would be the sequence of tests up to tearing into the carbs? is there a fuel filter inside the carbs? remember it fires off great when primed...until the fuel spray is consumed...

SOURCE: 1996 bayou runs for short time ,keeps stalling out

Hello, I would start first, make sure ex pipe is open . Then I would check the pick up coil, ohms should be 390-590 on a 300 KLF. Do this test before u start the bike Then start the bike and when it quits running check the pick up coil ohms. If good move on to the coil, If good then I would say good chance CDI is bad I hope this helps

SOURCE: engine turns over fine , car will not start.

well the first part of your question i was all ready to tell you to put a new fuel pump in, now not so sure, there is a relay for fuel pump, can you hear pump cycle and relay click? relay under hood you will have to listen close they don't run long maybe a couple secounds, if you don't relay bad. if you do pump could be bad, do fuel pressure test pump could be weak. don't think sunroof and turn signals are related, but stranger things have happend.

SOURCE: 1994 700..Starts immediately w/starting fluid..

Well you didn't specify what kind of motor it is just that it's a 1994. If it runs when you use starting fluid but dies then the problem has to be fuel. I'm assuming you've changed the fuel filter. I'm not sure what kind of an engine you're talking about here but if it hasn't been run for two years and it has a carburetor the float could be stuck. If it is stuck in the up position this would block fuel from entering the carburetor. Check it, the fuel filter and the line coming from the tank and trace the fuel supply all the way to the engine from the tank.

Why would i have 60 psi in all 3 cylinders. ran great then all at once it started to run bad


anything below 100psi on 2strokes is usless and needs new rings as long as no damage and in tolerance to pistons ! reed valves and crank seals have nothing to do with piston compression , they work on crankcase pressure !

Sounds like it may be drawing air around the intake somewhere. Let it idle and spray around carefully with wd-40 until it speeds up. This will reveal the leak.

Fuel leak


The carb/s are flooding , you will have to check the float pin and the float, a good clean with compressed air should do the job, check too the fuel line and the fuel filter.
Hope this helps!

Starting problems


carbs have you taken them apart and rebuilt them at the most after sitting so long the fuel drys up if there is none in there or if there is fuel in it then it has turned to varnish just drain the system clean the tank clean the carbs and try it again

Getting a fuel dump


Sounds like you need to clean the carbs out, as they are probably gummed/varnished badly after sitting for 2 years.
