2003 Yamaha YZ... | Answered on May 25, 2015

No oil goes into the crank case as it is a 2 stroke. The oil is premixed in the fuel at a 30-1 ratio.
The gear box takes 10w-30 se oil.

The clutch and gearbox share the same oil. The oil for the motor is 10w40. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil, Yamalube or Shell.

you should try cleaning your carb i dont know how often you clean your air filter but if you havn't done that you should do it also.after you do that turn the gas on lean it over till gas runs out the over flow and give it choke no gas and try kicking it over.you should be able to just loosen up the clamps on each side of the carb and twist it so you can get to the float bowl,unscrew the four screws and blow it out with a air nossle you can try that before you go through the troubles of taking it off to clean it.

If it does stay in gear when barely throttled but does not stay in while under load, the engagement dogs on the gears(inside the engine) are bad and the engine will need to come apart to repair it.

The only filter in the fuel system is a fine mesh screen in the gas tank - on the end of the pickup tube. Pull the petc0ck and you will see it.

Hope this helped.

it should be just a bolt that goes through the base of kickstarter then wedge a screw driver into the slot to widen it and it should come off .but if you want to remove the shaft and all you will need to split the cases hope this helps

1). Confirm that the transmission is really in nuetral, or insure that the clutch is pulled in.

2). Have you tried removing the spark plug to insure that you do not have a hydraulic lock due to excess fuel in the cylinder? With spark plug removed, any excess fuel should be expelled out the open spark plug hole. CAUTION: INSURE THAT THE SPARK PLUG LEAD IS DISCONNECTED, AND HELD AWAY FROM THE OPEN CYLINDER TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL IGNITION OF EXCESS FUEL.

How does the compression feel now that you have it cranking over again. Without the decompression lever pulled in it should be next to impossible to kick it over. also, is there any noise coming from the engine (knocking, etc.) when you got it to start again.

it will be the coil buddy what you can do is try the coil off the lawnmower on the bike but just to test it as you will lose performance if kept on there

It would appear that the float is not shutting off fuel flow when the bowl is full--take off the bowl, remove the float and needle valve. Turn on the fuel for a moment to wash out the needle seat, clean the needle tip and reinstall the parts you took off. If the float is brass, shake it to listen for fuel inside the float. If there is, replace it. Plastic floats don't have this problem. Hope this helps!
