My yamahas still doing the same thing it did run and drive but now all it does is fire up and die what's the problem

%d comments
  • Ya I would go with clean the carb

  • But it's getting gas cause you can smell it

  • is the carb leaking?

  • No

  • check the valve clearance

  • Ok

  • Your intake valve could be spent.

  • Run a extra ground wire from the coil to someplace on the frame none of mine have ever ran or ran well before me doing that. Look it up on youtube I have a video of my 225dr on there where I did it. I think it's called 1985 Yamaha 225dr troubleshooting and something else

  • too much fuel

  • If you can really smell the gas you could be getting to much. Like if your float is stuck. Give that a try. And if not like Jacob Kerr said it could be a coil issue. Mine was acting similar and I replaced the coil and it worked good. Try the carb first but then move to the coil

  • same with mine, turned out to be a combo of both. make sure when you tear the carb apart, use gasket paper or some kind of fuel sage silicone.. and not too much

  • Ok thanks guys
