SOURCE: kawasaki 300 bayou won't rev up.

No guarantees but try this. Pull the slide from the throat of the carb. Now move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. This will richen the low end mix. Two notches may be needed but do one notch at the start.

SOURCE: when start go to rev it just dies

Remove the throttle stop adjuster and the air screw adjuster and spray carb cleaner in the holes.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Turn the pilot screw 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Check the float level. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower.Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Adjust the idle speed with the Throttle stop screw. This process should get you back on the road. A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

SOURCE: LEAKING OVERFLOW PROBLIM

it sounds to me like the carb float levels are out of adjustment and it is overfilling the bowls,or,the needle valve seats are worn and leaking,which will allow fuel to continue filling the bowls even though it looks like they are closed,remove the carbs from the bike,remove the bowls,turn the cabs upside down close the floats(push them right to the top,this simulates full bowls)then blow throgh the fuel inlet pipe,if you can hear air escaping from around the seats they are faulty,also check that the seats themselves are tight in the carb body,i dont know why but gsxr carbs seem to shake the valve seats loose..hope this helps

SOURCE: kawasaki kmx125 lights go dim when revving engine. work fine on i

I had the same issue, and it after lots of testing and measuring, found out it was only that 'earth' wire that you have at the bottom left part of the engine, coming out from the left engine cover. You will find it easily, it's a standalone wire, mine had its sleeve too dry, might have been why it was not well connected. It also had a mix of sand and oil in it, so no wonder the lights would dim out. The wire plugs into some sort of a screw, you really can't miss it :) Even the old, worn sounding Yuasa battery got back to perfect function, only added distilled water to it and let it run fro some time. Cheers:)

Ses doo 2013 grx limited 260 wont start Why


The internal combustion engine is quite simple. All you need for it to run is compression, fuel & a spark to ignite it. I'm not saying it'll do 40 MPH but it should start & run. If it doesn't then one of the 3 elements is missing.
You need the following - sounds stupid but it wont work if one of these is missing.
1. PETROL - fill the tank to be sure. If its a 4 stroke just petrol. If its a 2 stroke petrol & 2 stroke oil mixed or top up 2 stroke oil tank.
2. Fully charged BATTERY. Clean connectors on battery tops
3. a SPARK at spark plugs. Clean them while they are out. If no spark look for dodgy coils, plugs, HT leads, triggers.
Look for air leaks in fuel line - if bulb does not go hard you got an air leak. Does it smell of petrol? check for leaks in fuel line & around carbs, look for perished fuel line, loose clamps or if they are jubilee clips, they could be too tight, crushing the anti-syphon valves at the primer bulb. loosen them until squeezing the bulb scoots fuel out then re-tighten JUST enough to stop fuel leaking.
Does it turn over? - then battery ok & not seized
Does the choke operate? operate lever & confirm things turn properly on carbs.
Once its started you can fine tune it but it needs to start first!!

The engine will turn over but will not start, the fuel pump is working


Try squirting some easy start (Brand name- spray available from decent garages) into the air intake and then block the intake with a rag, then turn over the engine, the easy start should ease things along and the rag will restrictair intake causing a greater suction on the petrol pulling more in, If you manageto getthe engine ticking over i advise to rev to about 4000 for a few seconds( you will probably get a huge white smog out of your exhaust but thats fine) and keep revving slightly until normal, another idea would be to check that any fuel lines arent twisted, blocked etc.
Hope this helps.

Apache quad 100cc Bike will not start, battery is ok, plenty of petrol in it but will not fire, can anyone help,


this typically comes down to basics. you engine needs air,fuel and spark to run. FUEL - pull the main fuel hose in to the carb from gas tank and turn on to be sure fuel is getting to the carb. SPARK - next pull out spark plug and while still connected to igntion cap, touch end of plug to motor and turn over engine. if you do not see spark, this is your issue and is usually the most common issue. if spark is present, spray starting fluid into the spark plug hole, reinstall plug and try to start, if it trys to start as in starts then dies, your not getting fuel past or from your carb. Clean carb. AIR - last but not least check your air filter and insure it is not clogged or obstructed and is allowing air to the engine. As for no spark, the can be many issues from a bad CDI ignition coil or generator/stator to just a bad kill switch or cut/unplugged wire.

Run out of petrol put more in went to start car just kicks over seem like petrol not getting to carb the car is a 1997 model 146 no smells like flooding


Are you sure you ran out of petrol? It might be that the petrol pump or something else had died. The only way to tell is to undo the fuel line from the carb and turn it over, check if it pumps fuel (have someone help you with this.) You might also find that you've got a blockage in your fuel filter, caused maybe by **** left floating at the top of the tank that was sucked in when you ran out of petrol. Check the filter first and see if it's OK, then check if fuel is flowing. Also, on a 97 Alfa, I'd imagine it was fuel injected though I could be wrong. If it is then you'll want to be more careful wit the fuel line.
