RE: yamaha xs750 runs great for 24 km then dies

hmm, this is a tricky one, I would do a few things

  1. check to make sure your floats aren’t sticking, this could cause a “too much fuel” problem.
  2. I would also do a carb sync to make sure they are all running consistently.
  3. check the plugs to see how they look, are they gapped properly?
  4. are all 3 cylinders firing? check to see if all three header tubes are getting warm.
  5. are your vacuum caps in good shape? plugged?

if you get it running good again and can take it on another ride, try riding with the gas cap popped (make sure the tank isn’t super full so you don’t get spillage out the top) and see if it dies again at that 24km mark.

I experienced something similar to the dying while riding problem, the gas cap on my bike wasn’t venting properly/quick enough for whatever reason and it would actually prevent the gas from flowing down into the carbs and would cause it to starve for fuel, it would then eventually equalize pressure and flow down and was able to start again.

RE: Ben's 1976 XS750

looks awesome! I like the single gauge setup, kind of wish I went that route, I did the dual small gauges and they work good, but I don’t think they look as nice.

RE: 2018 Diamond & Crater Lake Loop

Diamond Lake sits just 6 miles from the North entrance to Crater Lake Natl. Park.

2018 Diamond & Crater Lake Loop

Calling west coast Triples!
Join us at group camp site G20 at Diamond Lake Campground (Oregon) this August 23rd - 27th.
Group camp site is pre-paid and there’s plenty of tent space. We camp at Diamond for 2 reasons, 1) it’s less expensive than camping at Crater Lake National Park, and 2) it sits at a lower elevation, so the probability of waking up to snow and ice (yes! even in late August up @ Crater Lake there can be snow) is pretty much eliminated. There are plenty of BEAUTIFUL day-rides (besides the Crater Lake loop) throughout the area.

Hope some can make it!

Hey All,

Just giving an update, due to some asset updates our template has been made incompatible with our current version of forum software, I will be doing some updates over the next couple of days to return our template back to what it was supposed to be.
