Xt 200

Recommended Posts

We picked up a XT Yamaha 200 for a 100 bucks,Great bike for starting out..

Runs great and starts every time ,but recently it dies every time you put it in gear 😢

It runs fine in nuetral, no hesitation ,starts back up after you put it back in neutral,it wont start in gear,clutch grabs fine and adjusted .........

Could it be that the oil is dirty enough to cause the clutch to grab to much..?

I'm game for any ideas 😢😢

The clutch could be the problem. My 650 is a 1990, and while the bike runs great, sometimes off the line the clutch will make squealing noises and the oil confirms that the plates have deteriorated. I'd say change the oil and the clutch plates. Could be a bent shift fork too, but the plates sound like the problem. You'll know if you see a strange metalic silver tinge to the oil.

Checked the clutch,it was ok,changed oil,no help 😢

Found the problem 😢 The bike has a kickstand safty switch that went bad,keeping the switch open,cut wires to it and spliced them together,you can put the bike in gear and it stays runnin 😢😢 Time to ride 😢
