Question about 1986 Yamaha RD 350

1 Answer

My atv won't start after a tune up

My atv sat up for a year. I removed and cleaned the carburator which was full of water, and the valve was stuck. I cleaned the valve and was able to get it to move freely. I also replaced the throttle cable. Also, I cleaned the fuel lines and replaced old gas with new gas. I replaced the sparkplug and rewired the previously caroided wires. the engine turns over but acts like there is no spark, so i checked and there is. I do not know what else to do. HELP

Engine will crank but want rev up charging system metered at 13.7 volts


Hi, Martie if your bike has been idle for months or years and does not want to start you will have to deal with a few remedies:
1. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
2. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
3. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
4. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
5. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.
Good luck and have a nice day.

My 2007 450 sportsman won.t start but she backfires


Remove the seat, and take the cover off the air filter container. Place your hand over the end to aid in fuel flow to the carburator. You might not be getting enough fuel which is causing it to backfire and not start completely.
Attempt to start the ATV once you get fuel flowing you should be all set. Clean that filter as well.

Why does my 1989 suzuki 250cc quadrunner have no compression?


i would adj valves 1st and go from there. rings maybe stuck if it has sat a while w/o being started. run a compression test on it should have something at least. no compression doesnt sound right to me. if so rings stuck can be freed if so ,sometimes fixes it ,sometimes breaks it

ATV Yamaha Grizzly 350 2007 will not start


Sounds like it has sat for a while and your jets are gummed in the carb there is a you tube video on this topic that will walk you through the repair other thing to check turn fuel tank valve to off position remove fuel hose at carb slowly turn valve on to see if you have fuel to the carb if there is fuel there turn valve off install hose back on carb remove remove hose at tank valve now on the bottom of the carb you will see a plug or screw loosen this ( there may be fuel running out of drain hose have a bucket to catch fuel) now on the hose at tank valve blow threw it ( do not use air compressor) air should blow freely if it dose not your needle valve is stuck and there is no fuel getting to the carb or stuck float or a hole in the float and full of fuel

The mower has spark and good gas flow to the carb but will not start it cranks over good and has a new battery


Sounds to me like you have water in your carburator bowl , or your needle valve is stuck in it's seat. Shut off your fuel tank to carburator, remove the carburator bowl with container underneath, careful of the gasket, and see what comes out. If needle is stuck up into carburator gently pull down.
Also check the container for water. This could be one, or both of your problems. Clean parts , replace , and it might be a good idea to drain your fuel tank you may have some water in there. Start with fresh gas. GOOD LUCK.

I have a 1986 Yamaha yz490. it ran great until it sat for two years when i went to start it it felt like it wanted to start. I replaced the spark plug and replaced the fuel filter. when i kicked it over i...


Your cylinder is probably full of fuel, becareful here. Disable the spark and kick it over with the spark plug out to remove the fuel.
Your problem sounds like a stuck float in the carburator. It needs to be removed and cleaned out good.

Scooter sat for a year; wouldn't start; replaced battery. filled with gas. cleaned spark plug. won't start. Help


after a year sitting idle chances are that the gas inside the carb has degraded and the carb will need cleaning also when you filled the tank did you remove any old fuel? if not the its contaminated with the old gas
give it a full service new feul clean carb clean air filter then it should start

hope this helps

I have a 2001 sv 650 it sat for a year i cleaned the carbs out and it till will not start it has a brand new battery


If it sat with the valves or a valve stuck in an open position then the valves will need to be freed up before it will start and run.You can remove the valve cover to see if they are working correctly.

49cc 2 stroke runs for 20 sec. then cuts out


20 seconds is all that is required to drain the float bowl. You have a float bowl/needle valve problem.
