Yamaha XT225 problems

Recommended Posts

I just began working on my dads 2006 XT225, it was parked for a few years due to the engine dying whenever it warmed up. 

im currently having issues with the idle, the bike will not run without some throttle input. even after running laps around the yard for about 15 minutes the bike would die seconds after the clutch was pulled in. The bike used to idle with no problems, but there is also a noticeable drop in power. takes off ok but struggles uphill and isnt as peppy when you throttle it.

any tips for trouble shooting, or recommendations for replacement parts would be greatly appreciated.

thanks, Nat

Start at tank ,  remove and clean , then petcock , replace fuel lines and install in line filter ..remove and clean carb ,  replace plug .  Check valve clearances ,  that should take care of most of it ....
