Start by narrowing it down to fire or fuel problem. Pull a sparkplug, ground it to the head, and crank the engine. If there is no spark, then test the plug wires, coil, then ignition module in order down the line until you find where the power stops. If you have spark, then check the petcock to carb for fuel. If there is no fuel from the petcock, then it will be the petcock filter or the petcock is bad. If you do have fuel to the carb, but no to the cylinders, then the carb may need to be cleaned and/or rebuilt. Try these and let me know.

The starter clutch needs to be replaced. An alternator sgop will usually rebuild these for 1/2 of a new one.

I have a 1999 Yamaha Roadstar 1600. I ride the bike for minutes or hours and the bike stops running. The bike has no electrical power and wont start leaving me stranded. If i wait a few hours the bike...


Check if the charging system works ok.
At idle with lights off, you should see 13.5-14.5V on battery's terminals and 0.5V less with high beams on, at idle speed as well as at 4000rpm.
Use a fresh good verified battery to take the readings.

More likely to be your ignition coils. They heat up and expand this can cause an open circuit which will close up again when it has cooled down. Although, a bad charging system may cause this problem. Check the battery voltage with engine switched off ( approx 12 volts) and with the engine running (approx 14 volts) If you are getting 14 volts then your battery is dead, if you aren't, then your charging system has a fault.

I have a 883 harley davidson sporster, was riding the bike and road over a bump and bike shut down and won't start


I'd check the battery first. I've seen the post break loose from the batteries in many Sportsters and leave them dead on the road. I've only seen this happen once on a Big Twin. Why? I have no idea. If nothing on the bike works, this may be the problem. If everything else works but it just won't start, I need more information. Does the starter engage and the engine turn over?

Bike started sputtering espeacially when cold after sitting thru the winter Would like to know how to change the fuel filter to see if thats the problem


Most likely the problem is not the fuel filter. Since the bike sat through the winter, it is probably fuel gummed ports/jets. This is happening more often especially with the ethanol blend of fuel. In the last few weeks, as riders bring their bikes out of winter storage, there has ben many with the same problem as yours. I recommend pouring at least 1/2 can of SeaFoam in the tank, lock down the front brake and rock the bike back and forth to mix the additive. Once it is mixed, crank the engine and run at high idle for a couple minutes. Let it set for an hour or so to give the SeaFoam time to work. Crank the bike, and ride normally. It should clear up. If it doesn't clear up in an hour or two, you may have water in the carb bowl that will have to be drained.

I have a 2004 kx250f. The first ride of the year I noticed my bike bogged in the air and a little when I landed. When I get on the gas hard I dont feel it. Whats going on?


If the bike sat up for the winter, it's a real possibility the carb jets and fuel passages are gummed up. If this is the case, I recommend 1/4 to 1/2 can of SeaFoam added to your fuel. Lock down the front brake and rock the bike back and forth to mix the additive with the gas. Crank the bike and run at high idle for a few minutes, and since it is rideable, ride like you normally do and see if it gets more responsive after an hour or so.

Bike won't start and head light won't come on


Battery probably! did it push start? because if it did,,,, you should continue to ride it for awhile to recharge the battery.... that is if the voltage regulator is working o.k. check battery voltage, if its only 12v the regulator is probably going out.

97 YAMAHA YZF 1000,wont start itself after bike is warm


Have you checked the ground lead?

Make sure it is clean, it runs down and bolts to the top right hand side of the crank case.

Sometimes what happens is, that lead gets grime on it, oil or corrosion.. and it doesn't make good contact. The lights, spark ETC load the crank case and frame full of DC.. when you shut the bike off the dc cant flow through the starter so it won't turn over.

after a while the dc trickles out it will let the bike start again.

Hope thats it and it works for you, good luck!!

P.S. how is he liking his ace?? Awsome bike, I have had mine since 1999, and it not about to go anywhere!!
