paule230 Posted June 11, 2011 Share Posted June 11, 2011 TZR 125 (1998) YPVS fitted After I restored my TZR 125 I had trouble with the bike spluttering and not wanting to rev over 3k. I put this down to rust from the tank blocking the carb jet, so after numerous cleaning both with the tank and carb I seemed to have got it sorted and on its last run out pulled like a train from 7k in all gears. Now its gone back to spluttering again. The bike starts either 1st or 2nd kick when cold and always 1st kick when warm, revs cleanly from tick over, but try to ride it and it coughs and splutters from about 3k rpm regardless of throttle position. I stripped the carb again and it was clean, I have fitted a costly metal and glass inline filter which also only contained spotlessly clean petrol (Shell V-Power)so i am sure it cannot be dirt in the fuel. The best way to describe it, is it's like the choke is on preventing it from reving under load, but I know it's not and if it was then bike wouldnt revs when stationary. I'm really at a loss now and to make matters worse, I have been approached about having my bike may get featured in a mag, so I have to have it sorted for then as a good article could help raise awareness of these bikes and put the values up which will help us all. Any suggestions cos I just dont know what to do now and its getting me down :banghead2: as everything else on the bike is perfect. Thank you.
