Kazuma 250 won't start

Recommended Posts

I have a kazuma 250 utility atv, I believe it's a gator and this thing will not start for anything. I've got good spark and it will turn over but will not fire up. I can't find any kind of manual with useful info on this thing. Can any1 tell me what the stock car. Settings r on it so I can make sure they r rite.... I don't think tat s my problem but the more I can rule out the closer I can get 2 a solution. Thanks!

Has the bike been sitting ? 

Have you checked fuel is getting into the engine.   Get some starting fluid and spray it in the air intake and crank.   If the bike starts then it’s. A fuel problem.  

Couod be bad gas, dirty carburetor etc

There is still a problem with the starter relay! We blame the candle or candle pierce. you can see a black spout on a starter relay, then it's worth testing it.By the time I changed everything, then it was easier to go. The stuttering sound, it is a reference to the dirty thing in the system. It is necessary to clean carburetor, gasoline filters and filters.

Hi and thank u every1... I've done everything mentioned except whatever ur saying about the starter relay. I checked the starter relay and it's working as it should. The spark is strong and when I open the screw in the bottom of the carb I've got fuel flowing. This thing makes no sense @ all. It has sat here and there but for no long amount of time... Maybe like a week or 2 here and there but not for any significant amount of time. 

But I am gonna clean the carb again just 2 rule that out 4 sure

Good idea on a second cleaning of the carb. Fuel in the bowl of the carb does not alwsys mean the fuel is getting where it needs to go. There is a main jet that allows fuel to get into the carb from the bowl. This jet is most likely blocked.    

Have you sprayed starting fluid into the air Intake  to see if the bike fires up ???

Also have you checked that the fuel has not gotten water in it ?

Thank u frank. I did notice the fuel appeared 2 b compromised. I am aware of the main jet and the issues involved however I will appreciatively take ur suggestion and make certian it is free of all debri. I think my big hesitation and uncertainty with this particular machine is it is a water cooled engine for 1, which I have never had this displeasure of working on. And 2, the timing adjusters r on the outside of this engine which not only strikes me as odd but also I can't see how this is a good idea as it seems easily comprimisable.... If that's even a word, lol. I haven't touched the machine in a few weeks altho I need 2 get on the ball with it.

Recheck the carb.  I've cleaned carbs before, put it back together and it starts or barely start, just to retake the carb off and reclean it and it fires up.  Make sure gas is getting to the bowl in the carb and all jets are clean.  You'd be surprise on how a piece of debris can clog and hole off a jet and you miss it.  Thats what happened to me.

      picked up my third timberwolf 250 for my daughters.  these are great light weight little quads.
      have a strange one for you.  the quad will NOT start in neutral.  it will start in first. 
      if i lift up on the gear selector just enough to hear the little click (its not loud, sounds like a contact clicking, perhaps the neutral safety switch?) the light will go out, but it won't yet be in first either.  that is how i have shown my daughter to start it and she can.
      id like to carry out whatever repair is needed.  i have the pdf of the shop manual but it doesn't really have a flow through diagram.
      any help appreciated!  thank you.
      i need to add something.  it feels like i can switch into another gear BELOW neutral.  
      so if i switch to neutral, i can keep pushing the gear selector, and it has another click below the neutral.  the light stays on, and when i pull up into first it kind of feels like it has two positions it moves through to arrive at first.

      New to Quadcrazy, Has any Yamaha owners had similar issue?

      I have a 1996 Kawasaki Mojave KSF250. I have no manual on it and it has a no spark issue. If anyone could give me a hand with this or would possibly have a manual would appreciate it.

      '96 Cherokee here and right now I'm dealing with a no start after a few weeks of suspicious symptoms. She's been driven a lot less over the past year and about a month ago she began starting a little slow. I've got an oversized battery in there so usually she cranks right up no problem. I started monitoring batt voltage and saw around 12.04 V with engine off and 14.10 V or so running. Right before I get the new battery I head to Advance and they run a battery/alternator test. Kid tells me my batt is bad but alternator is still good.

      So I lay out the $ and install the same size 34N EverStart Maxx 800 cca from Wally's and the slow start persists. Measuring the new battery with engine off yields consistent readings of just under 12.7 V, so for the past few weeks I began charging the batt at 2A which seemed to help. A few days ago I venture out for an errand and the engine doesn't restart to get me back home. I get no clicks or cranking at all with a key turn. Batt measures 12.67 V at the terminals. Dash gauges seem to react with the key on, voltmeter reading ~11.5 V, although I'm not sure how accurate that is. Fuel pump pressurizes.

      Something that happened right after battery change out, which may or may not help in diagnosing the problem, is that my pass side headlight only illuminated half way while the driver side stayed full bright. I have an LMC Truck aftermarket headlight wiring harness giving 55/100w low high beam. It's the kind where you run the lights straight off the battery through additional relays. Had to tinker with the light harness a bit to get the new batt in and may have compromised a connection? Maybe a ground? Either way the pass headlight started showing full bright after only 1 or 2 occurrences and has been right ever since. With my alternator testing good and a new battery I wondered if maybe a loose connection was draining my voltage. I was in the middle of testing batt V connected vs. disconnected over time but this no start happened before I could get it done.

      Last thing to mention is that recently I've been removing both my fuel pump and starter relays for security reasons. The way it's acting now is exactly like when trying to start with both relays removed. Being that the fuel pump is pressurizing should I consider testing the starter relay? Other than that could I have caused some kind of part failure by removing and reinstalling the relays maybe around 5-6 times over the last month?

      All ears

      I have a yamaha big bear 400, tested all fuses and relays. When I turn on key I get nothing, no neutral light or headlights. Could it be the key switch bad?
