Thread: Gp1200r problems
06-06-2014, 09:19 AM #1
Well I picked up this 00 gp1200r with trailer and title for $200 couple months ago. Brought it home and started tearing it apart. Middle rod went thru the case. Bought case, crank, piston/jug and gaskets. I also rebuilt carbs and did pop off and leak down test in them.
Put it all back together last night and took it out for a test run. Started right up. Idled around for a minute or so and then gave it a little gas. Motor lasted for about 5 minutes tops. Brought it home and started tearing it apart.
So damage this time is crank, reeds, piston/jug.
The only thing I can think that caused it is the oil injection on the middle cylinder. Maybe the one way valve is bad?
Another thing is when I hook up the kill switch should the power valves move?

Are you saying you leak tested the carbs or the engine after rebuilding ?

Power valves cycle about a second after stopping the engine. Non functioning power valves can make throttle response unstable and other inefficiencies, but typically don't blow an engine.
After my rebuild I left the oil injection, but have it dialed to be heavy on the oil, sortof a break in. I can visually see the oil flowing in the tygon lines so I know I'm good when I fire it up. I have about 20 hrs since rebuild so I'm ready to dial back the oil.
To diagnose, you can remove the magneto cover and pump the oil pump with a drill to see if oil is flowing through all three lines including past check valves.
