Strange thigs about YAMAHA TW 125

Hi, my TW is acting weird. Starting with choke goes ok, but then, when engine is warm enough it stops when I start to push back the choke. It also stops when I pull the throttle Things I`ve tried: -cleaning each part of the carburator -checking the fuel level in float chamber -cleaning the air filter -adjust idle speed -checked fuel level -checked fuel **** -replaced spark plug -checked battery Also strange thing: There is a hose connecting the fuel drain pipe (bottom of the carb) with pipe in the right side of carb. When I pull down the hose from the mentioned right side pipe, the throttle begins to work fine (?) Thanks in forward for advices

    Great thanks, gethro-01! I bought it as a used bike, that`s why I`m not familiar with the default settings. Again, thank for your time, man ;-)

I have been working on my carb today,the pipe from the bottom of the carb should just run down by the bottom of the swinging arm,there should be another pipe from the pipe on the left side of the carb just above the fuel intake which also runs down to the swinging arm and connect to nothing.

Yamaha TW 125 Sputters and hesitates when Hot

well first thing i'd check is the choke isnt sticking on. if so the bikes running rich, hence the temperature.

if its got the paddle switch on the side of the carb, make sure its not turning on once you ride it, if its a cable check its retracting fully by lubing the cable.

and also Fuel treatment e.g. redex isnt a problem fixer, it helps do what it says but it cant beat a thorough strip down.

check your carb jets are clean theres no rust etc inside the float bowl, and make sure your running the right spark plug heat range, as if its too high a range that wont help either.

Hi, Mary and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirt or other foreign matter between float valve and its seat.
2. Float valve sticking.
3. Float valve and/or valve seat is worn or damaged.
4. Float misadjusted.
5. Float cracked, leaky or damaged.
6. Excessive "PUMPING" of hand throttle grip.

When my 1972 chevrolet 350 4 barrel is warmed up it acts like its not getting gas and jerks and eventually dies. if i wait a few minutes it will start up but after slight acceleration it starts it aga

Good chance it is not getting fuel, or enough fuel.
When the rig is cold, the choke is closed. As it warms up, the choke opens.
If the metering jets inside the carb are dirty, they may not be letting enough fuel into the barrels. You could also have a vac leak that is masked by the choke until the engine warms up.

You have to adjust the jets on the carb, theres a high and low jet, Turn them both all the way in ( dont force them) just turn until they stop, now losen each one in 1/4 intervals and try running it,

Air cleaner clean? Is it in fact warm (the engine) .

Id be inclined to let it warm a little more. Your hot bike has advanced time and as a result is difficult when cold.

Yamaha TW 200 starts but won't run.

If the bike has sat for a long period of time without being run - the gas that is sitting in the carb(s) will shellac.. Then the carb(s) would need to be cleaned and "rebuilt"..

Starting problem

sounds like a fuel block or the fuel is not being primed enough prior to the first start , try checking the fuel line for any kinks or twists and make sure it has a straight flow to the carb.
