Yamaha XT225 Serow Starting
« on: February 20, 2014, 11:04:51 AM »
Recently bought one of these bikes but have a problem starting it. Sometimes (about one in ten) it starts on the first touch of the button, but most times it doesn't fire at all. Battery fully charged, I have checked spark and that seems healthy so I guess its a fuel problem. It has a Mikuni carb, the one with the black plastic top. Any tips on stripping, cleaning these carbs? Can anyone recommend any websites about this carb? I've spent hours googling without much success.
I will buy the Haynes manual but it covers so many models I doubt it covers this particular carb in any detail.
