I have a 1999 Moto 6.5 with a carb problem. As there are so few Aprilia's around the chance of a secondhand carb is unlikely. Does the BMW F650 use the same carb? I know the Pegaso carb cannot be used (although the needle fits) as it is a twin carb.The Carb is a Mikuni BST 40 and it may be used in the F650 but I am not sure. It really depends what the problem is but I am sure most can be fixed by checking and cleaning the carb. Mine had a problem recently with cutting off when I pulled the throttle and the problem was water in the carb. It came from the tank infill breather tube that was blocked at the bottom of the tank. After drilling through the alu connector and cleaning the carb (cost me £57) the problem had gone and its running fine now. Also make a google search on MOTO 6.5 and you will find very helpful info (mostly in german) on a number of websites. ,

My car is using i lot of petrol but it looks like its going in the oil what can be the problem


Have you cleaned the Carburettor .

Go to a motor store and get some Carburettor cleaner spray can

and some Petrol System cleaner (a small bottle ).

Get some old rags like shirts or tshirts etc.

Take the Air filter pipe off the carb.

Spray a little carb cleaner onto the rag.

Wipe the inside of the carb with the old rag making sure not to open the small flap plates which may open slightly to one side.

Once the crap is removed from the outer section of the carb , using your fingers turn the carb opening & closing mechanism so the flaps are open so you can gain access , ( do not put too much pressure on them as you only need them open not broken off.) .

Get a big piece of rag and jam it to the back of the carburettor to stop any loose crap to fall inside.Making sure you can pull it out a little later.

Do the same as earlier and spray the inside of the Carburettor unit and put a little on the cloth. ( trying not to use too much or the old greased up stuff will go back into the Carburettor whichyou dont want. )

Clean as much gunk and degrease from the inside of the Carburettor as best as you can. To look as new as possible. I found using a small old paintprush helped by wrapping the rag around it and rubbing the gunk off the inside of the carburettor walls.



Try and remove any small bits of gunk which have fallen into the Carburettor.

Remember to pull out the rag you stuffed to the back of the carburettor earlier.Being very carefull not to damage the Carburettor flaps and trying not to get any small bits of grease fallen off down into the carburettor body itself.



.Leave the Air pipe off for now making sure it is clear whilst you start the engige. Once the engine has started give it a few good revs on the accelerator. to try and clear any loose bits .

Turn off the enginge , Take a very small amount of the Petrol system cleaner and spill a very small amount into the inside of the carburettor. Leave for a minute and Start the engine again and give it a few more revs on the accelerator.

Checking all items used and rags are removed from the engine area.

Replace the air pipe back and secure back onto the Carburettor unit.



This should help the car run a lot smoother as there is less buildup of grease and oil in the Carburettor system.





I have done the above on several of my Old and New cars after several years with great success.

All you are doing is cleaning all the gunk from spent fuel from the inside of the carburettor unit making the intake cleaner and better.

How to fix emission problems ?


Get some Carburettor cleaner spray from an auto center.
Take the pipe off into the air filter unit attached to the Carburettor it normally has a large ring clip around the black pipe so you may be able to use a slot screwdriver or a small ratched driver to remove.
Put a small piece of cloth into the carburettor unit to stop too much contamination going back into the system . Use a cloth or paper towel to wipe off any excess oil inside the carburettor. Spray the carburettor cleaner inside the unit , Using an old Tootchbrush give it a rub to degrease the old oil and fuel. Be careful to Open up the open and closing circular small valve spray a little bit of cleanir inside and using a long piece of cloth clean any contaminated area inside the carburettor.
Dont ruch this and get as much old oil and grease from inside the carburettor as you can. Taking care to remove all the bits of cloth and paper tissue . .
Start the car up with the Carburettor still open to the world.
With the car running and the Carburettor opening and closing spray a little more of the cleaner using the straw in the nozzle into the inside , please make sure you are standing to the side so nothing comes back out into your eyes.

With the carburettor now much cleaner . Put the air pipes back on and take it for a run . At your next fill up of fuel put in a fuel addative for Engine System cleaning and this should help with the emissions.

Switch to gas


check the solenoid on petrol line from fuel pump to carburettor is switching off petrol to carburettor when switching, you should hear the solenoid clicking when operating. Alternatively you can disonnect pipe fueline at carburettor, turn key ,if petrol comes out of line make sure it shuts off when you turn switch from petrol to LPG

My tiller will run with choke on but soon as i shut choke off it dies. How do i solve this problem.


First make sure the fuel filter is clean. Check the carburettor is attached tightly to the engine. The passage ways and jets in the carburettor may be gummed up. Dismantle the carburettor while ensuring that you don't damage any gaskets. Spray carburettor cleaner into the orifices and then if you have a compressed air gun, use it to blow out the carburettor.

Why can a small carburetor cause and engine to overheat?


A carburettor is chosen by the volume of the venturi on it. A small carburettor will not be able to supply a rich enough mixture. Evaporating gasoline, just like alcohol rubbed on your skin, takes out heat as it turns to vapour (that's evaporative cooling). If there isn't enough gasoline evaporating in the engine, the engine overheats. So, choose a carburettor that is at least big enough for the engine it feeds. As engine displacement is fixed, what changes is the amount of gas the carburettor can feed, hence, a small carburettor supplies a too little volume of a too lean mix.
