Hello your problem is very likely a leaking seal on the fly wheel side. Clutch side would smoke excessively. Make certian your throttle cable is good and not pinched or routed in correctly. John H.

I had the same problem recently where the idle speed was too high (3000 RPM) when the steering was pointing hard left. Here are some possible solutions to your problem. I have listed them in order of probability:

1. Choke. Maybe sounds too obvious, but if everything else is in good working order, this is usually the cause of a high engine speed at idle. Locate the choke and 'play' with it to see if this has an effect on RPM.

2. The throttle cable is tight or catching. Try loosening the lock-nut and teasing the cable away from the grip end. Don't force it too much to avoid snapping it. If it releases, check the throttle free-play is correct, and adjust if necessary. Lubricate cable at both ends to reduce any restricted movement.

3. The throttle cable is rusty. Try using a bit of WD40 at each end of the cable (handle and engine alike) and use a lubricant. 1975 is an old bike for sure, so clean & check the entire length of the cable for cracks or splits. Remember to wipe away any excess WD40 or lubricant after any maintenance. If you discover that you need a new throttle cable, these are cheap and easy to fit, and are normally available through eBay.

4. The engine idle speed setting is incorrect. There should be a screw situated somewhere around the engine case (you may have to consult the manual to find it). Turning this screw clockwise/anti-clockwise will adjust the idle speed up or down. Suggest you only perform this as a last resort.

5. Check oil. The engine idle speed can be dictated slightly by oil levels, so make sure the oil levels are between min/max on the dip-stick. Also, ensure that you are using the correct engine oil for your machine (consult the user manual), e.g. 2-stroke or 4-stroke, mineral or semi-synthetic, etc.

As I cannot guess what you mean by 'too high' when referring to the actual idle speed, I would suggest that if engine speed is more than 500 RPM above normal, it will most likely be an issue with the choke or throttle cable.

I would suggest you try finding a bike-specific servicing manual, but these are often hard to come by and can be pricey if you do eventually locate one. However, I do suggest you think about investing in the Haynes Motorcycle Maintenance Techbook: this is a generic book of bike maintenance and has loads of hints and tips that could save you loads on servicing bills. As most parts of any motorcycle are based on the same idea, much of the book answers even specific questions that apply to your problem.

Anyway, good luck !!

Can a loose/cracked autolube delivery hose cause vacuum leak on 1976 yamaha dt125 with autolube? Also, is it necessary for rubber crankcase holder for the oil & delivery hoses to be completely sealed?


Hi, Tod you may have a carburetor issue, replace your autolube line and not sure about the hose grommet but you can smear a light film of vaseline all around the sealing edges, start the engine and watch what happens if it gets sucked in or blown out seal as necessary with silicone otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.
11. Faulty fuel pump.

Xl12002002intakegasketssolveswhatproblem


Hi Anonymous, popping is usually caused by air getting sucked in combustion chamber do bad intake seals leaking. Leaking exhaust gaskets can also be suspect. Remove air cleaner and backing plate, while engine is idling spray WD-40 or Brake Kleen around intake manifold to head area, if RPM's increase you have an intake leak and seals need to be replaced, also spark plugs will be burning whiter than normal. Good luck

Trying to find the colors for Yamaha 175 enduro's from 1970 to 1973 I believe they had 2 colors each year? CT1 - CT2 - CT3


Hi, Mble375 for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem. Good luck and have a nice day.
