I hope so Pete. At least the motor was wanting to go rather than not!

Yes Pete.......

The dealer is a few miles away and said that they were happy for the scoot to be looked at by a local Yamaha-trained independent mechanic. This was last Friday when the scoot began to surge rather than idle at a red light etc.

Well, I set off last Sat on the way to the mechanic (whom I've known and got on well with for many years btw) - the bike was still needing to be turned off at the lights, yet at the final set of traffic lights the fuelling settled down to a normal idle speed. Would you believe it?! The engine light remained on though. Mr Mechanic plugged in his Yamaha diagnostic box only to find that it didn't bloody work either! :roll:

I've been commuting to work this week with the engine light permanently on but the bike running normally. I will be taking it back to the mechanic today - he has a new diagnostic 'box' - and hopefully, an explanation of the fault when he knows the fault code.

Fekin rigmarole but I will get to put the kettle on and have a gander at the bikes he has in! icon_cuppa.gif

I hope its not too serious, and don't let it put you off, yamaha scooters are well built reliable machines.

The bike wouldn't idle at a stop and the yellow engine light popped on and now is a 'pretty' feature when ignition on. The motor wanted to surge and pulse at the lights pushing me forward.


I had something remarkably similar on my J300. When stationary the bike wanted to pull forward hard but when pulling away it bogged down before resuming normal progress. No warning light though.

My problem was that a roller had broken and was jamming the clutch so it did not disengage.

The warning light probably means your problem isn't the same, but as I imagine this would not come up on an electronic diagnostic check it might be worth opening the housing to take a look.

Sounds to me like the scooter has cured itself & just needs the diagnostic machine connected to turn the engine light out. Possible dodgy petrol or similar but, as long as it's running ok again & provided the engine light goes out all is well for you.

Exactly Pete....

Well, it sorted itself out. It was plugged into diagnostic machine. I didn't follow the explanation of the fault but it was logged only once. I was told that after 200 ignition key turns, and as long as there was not a repeat of the fault, the engine light would turn itself off anyway!
Engine light off now and 600 mile service done too. Bike is running well now.

It is quite quick for a 125 and will allow me to overtake and dart for gaps with ease, within the confines of the city. Standard seat is also comfy and has allowed me to do 90 mile days without the numb arse I'd have on the Vision 110 after 50 miles.
