Question about Yamaha Boating

1 Answer

Have a Yamaha GP1200R. Been running fine until yesterday. Took it to river and got about a mile down stream and it shut down. I let it cool down, it fired up and went about 100 yards and shut down again. It did this several times. Do you have any suggestions. Thanks

It sounds like it might have a bad coil. I have had coils do this on me in the past on a few motors. See if you can find another coil just to try it and it this is the problem then just buy a new coil and replace it.

When car gets to normal operating temp it shuts down will not restart until cools off


Not necessarily. There was a re-call on the cooling system a few years ago. Check with your mechanic about that. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a Kenmore Dryer Mod#110 62722101. It will run about 10 minutes and shut off, after a cool down period it will restart but only run about 10 mins. Heats, fine, tumbles fine. A few days before this...


If it runs after a cool down period, then the high temperature limit is part of the cause. What is causing the high temperature limit to overheat is next.
Strong stream of air should be felt coming out the exhaust, make sure this exhaust air works or the burner part will overheat and cut out the flame/burner on hight temp safety.
With good exhaust air varified, the drying air operating temperature sensor needs to be checked, this cuts power to the burner. The sensor must open electricaly when satisified on temperature and should be properly mounted for proper sensing of temperature.
Bottom line: Check the hot air and its control

On refilling your cooling system with coolant you may have to bleed air from the system via a bleeder valve usually located on or near the thermostat housing. Fill the cooling system and then with the engine running open the bleeder until a solid stream of coolant is emitted for several seconds.

I had exactly the same problem. It turned out to be the ignition module. The first time that mine failed it was exactly as you described.
What happens when the ignition module goes is the bike will run fine then when the motor gets hot it will shut down. Then it won't start again until the motor has completely cooled down. Then it will start, run rough, get hot and shut down again.
You will find the ignition module behind the round cover where the points are on older bikes.
There is an LED light on it that will tell you if it is working properly or not. But replacing one probably isn't a project that you want to take on yourself.
Unless you are completely confident with working on vital electrical components of your bike then I would suggest taking it to an experienced mechanic whom you trust.

All the wrf's,250 426 400 etc. WILL heat up and boil if they are left running without being ridden.They need air to be flowing over the radiator.1 minute can be enough to get them hot if the choke is used.You wrote that this happened after an oil change.Did you previously let the bike sit and run?.Check your air filter is clean as this can enrich the fuel/air ratio and create extra heat.Main thing is ,shut the bike down if you are stopping for more then a very short time.To satisfy yourself,take the bike for a slow ride as it is warming up.It can take up to 1 mile to get proper temp. into the entire motor.Hope this helps

I have a liquid cooled 4 stroke scooter. It runs


Check the cooling liquid qty. I feel engine piston is seizing. Replace the engine coolant as per the manufacture's recommendation.
