Dirt inside the fuel line, pump, or needs a new fuel filter. Always happens when you run out and suck fumes/dirt into it. Worst case, the needle pin or gasket on the carburetor has damage. Make sure you have a good air filter with this heat, and time of year to prevent vaper lock.

It will start but dies when I give it gas, what will cause that?


Hi Jeremy:
Opening the throttle will allow more air into the Carb.
If there is not enough gas available, that will lean the engine out and it will die.
I would recommend that you start you trouble shoot by draining and cleaning the carb, gas tank and fuel filter. Start over with fresh fuel. If the problem persists I would remove the carb and clean it carefully with compressed air, then try again.
If tat does not cure it, Reply as a comment to this post and we'll try some more.

My 2000 honda rancher has recently started to die after riding a few miles. It acts like the fuel stops getting through. It starts to stutter and then just dies and won't start again.. Needless to say it...


that is just a hand primer for when you run out of fuel. you may need to change the fuel filter. and clean out the fuel chamber and veins in the carb. if filter is old 2 years then it should be changed.

My 86 honda 250 sx wont start. It will start if i use starting fluid for a second but thats it. Before it would shut down after rideing it for a few,so i took the carb off,cleaned it put it back on and it...


I would say that the incorrect of use of gasket goo instead of the proper gasket has spilled into the bowl after assembly and is blocking the main jet --again
when working on a carby , there is no successful "short cut or lazy action"
