Struggling to start my Yamaha TT600

Recommended Posts

I've done everything i can, but bike still struggling to start. Don't know if it's weak spark, to lean to start etc.... Any suggestions?

check the pilot jets float level, and fuel flow to the carbs.also the compression release adjustment and valves

I've found on more that one occasion that the little resistor in the spark plug cap went bad.

Several times, unscrewing the brass-colored fitting inside the cap and replacing the resistor with a similarly-sized piece of steel (like a 4mm screw with the head cut off) did wonders for starting on a big thumper that was older.

My 1983 TT-600K (and 1983 XT-550K) were so easy to start, it was ridiculous.
