I have a Yamaha RT180 that I am having trouble with. My son was using the bike while I was away and then it quit running. I checked a few things and first of all I found the cylinder full of gas, so I thought either carb trouble or he just kept trying to start it. I pulled the carb apart and clened it up but it still wouldn't start. I checked for spark and had spark. I remebered my son said tha the throttle was sticking and he took it apart, so I thought maybe something in the kill switch went bad. I pulled the kill switch apart and cleaned it up, then the bike started. It ran for a little while then died and now it won't start again, the kill switch was not touched before it died so I really don't think that was the problem in the first place. Anyone have any ideas?
