Water in my carb?
Posted April 24, 2005 - 11:00 PM
Could there be water in my gas tank? in the carb? I don't see a drain screw to let the gas flow out of the carb.
Any suggestions would be very helpful.

I assume that I'll have to run it a little. After the first run. It is still not running right.
I also have noticed that it's backfiring way more than it did last year. Last season maybe once a ride it would backfire. Today I went for a run around the neighbourhood and it backfired a lot.
I'm not quite sure what backfiring is, but I would think that its fuel mixture that has not sparked and is igniting in the exhaust. Therefore, the fuel didn't spark because of 1) bad wires, 2) maybe bad sparkplug, although it's really new. 3)????? Not sure where else to look.
If any one has any ideas that would be great.!!

This is from a lean mixture and will need to be rejetted.
Where are you in Ontario?

Is there a good site so I can learn how to rejet my carb?
Actually, I'm from Toronto and never had a chance to own a dirtbike. For the last three years I have been living and working on Sakhalin Island, Russia. It's just north of Japan. Since, I have been here, I have shipped over a snowmobile and am now on my second dirtbike. My first one was an 91 Honda XLR250. There's a bunch of us who go out on the weekends and just ride. We are 2 minutes from the country and once out there, there is nothing, maybe the odd Russian miltary base and tank training area. Since the Russian military is broke, the tanks aren't out too often. It's actually pretty cool out here. Once I was pulled over for speeding. 45 seconds later, and 200 rubles poorer I was on my way. 200 rubles is $10CDN. Hows that for an efficient police system. 7 out of 10 stops result in a bribe.
I'm coming back to Canada in a week. And I want to drop by a Yamaha shop. Do you know any good ones east on Toronto? Where are you?

Quick question?: Do I need to strip it down or just open it up get at the parts to clean it?

It does NOT need to be re-jetted...just pull the existing jets and clean the varnish out of them so they flow fuel.........since the gas evaporated in the bowl, they're clogged!
I'm in Cornwall near the quebec border.
Have you been to these sites?
