    <UPDATED November 5th 08>
    Problem 1: Exhaust emitting white smoke.
    Reason:
    Engine oil is leaking into your chamber.
    Solution: Pistol rings needs to be changed. Go to a bike workshop.

    Reason: Your bike has a 2 stroke engine.
    Solution: Its normal.


    Problem 2: Engine stalls in heavy rain and unable to start.
    Reason: Spark plug could be getting wet by the rain causing it not not function
    Solution: Remove, dry the spark plug and put it back properly. Go get the plug cap replaced.

    Reason: Air fuel mixture may be too rich.
    Solution: Tune your carb to a leaner setting (turn screw anti-clockwise by 1/4).


    Problem 3: Flat / Punctured Tyres
    Solution: Try to inflate tyre with portable pump / bicycle pump then go bike or tyre shop. DO NOT ride on flat tyres as they may damage your tyre or wheel.

    Solution: Use tyre repair kit, plug and pump = good to go. Kit can be bought at LAB.


    Problem 4: Cannot / Hard to start bike
    Reason: Battery may be weak (confirmed by a tick sound from the right side cover under the seat).
    Solution: Push Start, and go get battery replaced.

    Reason: Fuse may be blown.
    Solution: Check Fuse. Fuse is located on right side of bike. Remove chrome cover under the seat and see. Look out for the centre of the fuse if its broken then FUSED lor. Change new one.

    Reason: Bike is in gear, kill switch is on, no petrol.
    Solution: Obvious.

    Reason: Rectifier issue (despite new battery, bike soon becomes hard to start again)
    Solution: Get mechanic to check with a voltage meter. Ah chong has one.

    Reason: Petrol topped up too full - Don't laugh.
    Solution: The petrol tank is not meant to be filled to the brim. Leave some space for air.

    Reason: Water in petrol
    Solution: Check that fuel cap is secure and no leaks

    Others:
    - Check ignition coil for sparks.
    - Check magneto coil.


    Problem 5: Cant go more den 80 km/h
    Reason: You are not in the 6th gear
    Solution: Down 1 time 1st gear. up 5 times to sixth gear

    Reason: If confirm no 6th gear, gear box may be in bad shape
    Solution: Go to a reputable workshop for a checkup, may need to over haul.

    Reason: Insufficient Engine Oil (Very bad)
    Solution: Check with dipstick as according to manual. Buy Engine Oil from petrol kiosk and top up.

    Reason: Clutch may have been worn off (Engine reving very high but no power to go any faster)
    Solution: Bike shop chance clutch.

    Reason: Air fuel mixture too rich (Crazy vibrations at higher revs making it too uncomfortable)
    Solution: Tune air fuel mixture leaner (Turn screw anti-clockwise 1/2 - 1 round)

    Reason: Sprocket may be worn off
    Solution: Change sprocket and chain.


    Problem 6: Weird sound on my bike
    Reason: Might be battery low. (Ticking sound on right side when start button depressed)
    Solution: Push start, change battery

    Reason: If sound is on gearbox side, chain may be too slack
    Solution: Check your chain tension 1st. Should have about 2 to 3cm slack, tested at the center of the bottom span of the chain. Anything more, get it tightened.


    Problem 7: - Exhaust Header got holes. Can repair?
    Reason: Got one specific hole which is ok.
    Solution: If unsure, post some pictures.


    Problem 8: - Engine oil Dip stick broken (Broken part might be in engine)
    Solution:
    - Send to bikeshop.
    - New dipstick costs around $11.


    Problem 9: I have tried everything but to no avail. Any tow numbers please?
    Solution:

    - 64560018 Wing Yap.

    Solution: Recharge the battery (Wet), Dry ones cannot be recharged?.
    Solution: Most people change batteries instead of recharging.
    Solution: If leaving bike alone for a long time, disconnect the battery to prevent further unnecessary drainage.

    Problem 22: Need to step real hard for brake lights to light up.
    B]Reason: [/B] There is a knob for adjustment, it might be loose
    Solution: There is a black screw lookalike plastic knob( near the spring) located somewhere near the rear brake pedal. u can play around with the knob by turning to adjust the sensitivity of your rear brake when you apply brake.

    There's no fixed setting, every vehicle has a different setting suit/catered to different users.. Try adjusting slowly over time to cater to yourself or let the mechanics do the job. FOC.

    Hi SNapEl, managed to rectify my backfire problem. My mech say its a exhaust gasket issue. After change exhaust gasket, the backfire seems to have lessen alot but not completely gone (once in a while have a pop sound). My mech said TA200 standard carb settin is 2.5 turn. Just wanna to confirm this with u guys. Anyway, i have yet to try reducing to 2 turns. Is there any other way to check if our setting is rich or lean apart from spark plug appearance? Now my bike feels throttle response is better a bit, but once reach 90`100 feels a bit heavier to pull away..

    Hi I had problem 18 and had the cam chain tensioner changed. That was only about 500km ago. Now the sound is back. Should I change the tensioner again or are there any other possible reasons?

    What I heard is that its a common thing, I hope other riders can assist in sharing their method of preventing it. Do consult the mechanic where you had it changed. I do wish to know who did it also

    The sound is only there when idling. Soft ticking, about 4 beats a second. I notice that it disappears or becomes very soft after riding.

    Yes that's what I changed on his advice, I had actually gone to change tyres. Apparently if it is left unchecked for too long the piston will hit something causing the engine to break down.

    too lean..when bike unable to combust.eg, during start up or running miss a combustion stroke(s)..fuel mix in exhaust can back fire..

    To be a bit more detailed,

    When its too lean, the fuel has not completely finish burning during the combustion stroke as there is not enough fuel to carry the flame around the chamber fast enough. So the fuel continues burning as it exits into the exhaust and backfires.

    When its too rich, there is unburnt fuel left after all the oxygen in the chamber is burnt off which get ejected into the exhaust. When the fuel is released at the mouth of the end can, the heat of the exhaust and the fresh air causes it to combust and backfire.

    Yes I'm local. Why do you ask?

    One more question, what is the maximum TA200 can go without changing engine oil? I would like to know (1) the maximum recommended, ie not ideal but the engine still can take it and (2) the maximum anyone has tried and what happened.

    I asked if you are local cos IMO bike shop usually chop foreigners... ie. ang moh...

    Some people say max 5000km then change, Mr. Chong says 5000km can change engine liao.

    I think max is 3000km.

    Ideal is 1500km - 2000km. (2k is my max)

    My advice is, one bottle of say, Maxima EO maybe 16 - 26 bucks, why want to save and kenna problems? Wait here spoil there spoil even more expensive liao.

    Do take into consideration that you might need to top up the EO if you plan not to change for sometime. This is because, somehow, the EO will get eaten by engine etc etc. Better run with full but dirty EO than no EO at all right?

    I don't understand how EO will be used up. Isn't it supposed to have a very high boiling point so that it will not evaporate? If not the EO itself will ignite in the heat of the engine which would be very dangerous.

    Im not sure about high boiling point for EO. I only know coolent have higher boiling point. I dunno why EO will get eaten / used up but trust me it will. This issue has been discussed before, if u really need to know, then search for it. Otherwise be like me, accept the fact. I have seen mine when it was drained out.... definitely less than what i put in. so yeah, u decide.

    Read up some stuff, if keeps drying up then have to check gasket, but generally, TA200 is known to eat EO. If i am not wrong, it is because TA200 is a very hot bike, it is air cooled unlike TA150 which has a radiator... if dont eat alot should be normal ... well ... if alot then gotta check liaoz...

    Hmmm rehdyh, your bike wont eat EO arh?? >.<" So good~!!

    It might be a case of it being too full, Thatone1 encountered this before and Ah Chong said it was too full. It might also be the rain. Might be something else.

    When I open throttle to accelerate then suddenly the rev become very loud but the bike seem to 'lag' in response to the throttle (pick up speed very slowly) What could be the cause? Is it very likely due to the clutch plate being worn off already?

    if it is raining..then electrical/spark leakages most likely..
    other reason could be just plain bad fuel. or petrol is not flowing , choke petrol/air filter etc..
