Looks like your carburettor's giving out a rich fuel mix there or you've forgotten to turn off the choke.,

Petrol smell is very high in starting and the petrol evaporates automatically?

Fuel started leaking after parked my honda cbrf


Could it be as simple as petrol switch set at "Drain" instead of off.
likely cause if not is loose or split in fuel line in between fuel tank and carb

Bike sparking and compression ok cannot start bike when cold this year any solutions thanks bike is year 1981


Either the spark is at the wrong timing when you would hear backfiring or coughing at least,if not it is fuel related
Check the reed valves are closing proerly, that the carb & jets are clean, & they have FRESH petrol
It sounds like it may not have run in 6 months or so in which time petrol goes off ( water can get in to petrol quicker giving the same effect

Hope this helps (if so please mark as helpful !!)

My engine oil light is on, and my bike wont stop reving


hmmm tricky.... knackered fuel tap sounds favourite, petrol vapour coming back round the system via breather back in to airbox making the revs go up, and probably oil is like water being mixed with petrol that's been leaking through. take of oil filler cap and smell oil, if it stinks of petrol, drain oil, if like water and full of petrol, change fuel tap, oil filter, and refill with new oil. carb float valves should stop petrol seeping through in theory but it'll always get past. just thought, if it is all that then airfilter will be full of petrol vapour as well, get a new one if paper, wash out if foam.

Bike starts fine with the choke and will idle without it when warmed up. However, when I twist the throttle the engine dies. I have just had a bunch of work done with an independent shop, including...


hmmm, a few posibilities, might well be split cab diaphragms but overhaul should have spotted that. sounds like either too much gas or not enough, either flooding/gassing up or fuel starvation. could try running it without the aire filter too see what happens. it should run weak so if bike is better then you have too much gas, if bike worse then runnig weak to start with. I have seen this before with one particular cause.... petrol tap was leaking, gas runs past pistons when bike not running, soaks past and into crankcases. as breather recycles vapour back in to air box, when bike warm it's as rich sas hell. take of oil filler cap on engine and have a good sniff. you should smell only oil, if it's a strong smell of petrol, change oil and filter, dump petrol tap or see if new seals available.

At 1/4 throttle does not seem to be getting gas and has no power


Has the bike been sitting for anytime ? Is it 'old' petrol ? Petrol goes off unless a stabaliser is used, takes on a jelly appearance and a varnish smell. 1/4 throttle seetings are controlled by air/primary jets and any long lay up of the bike may cause those jets to block up. Try draining the carbs, reseal them and once you disconnect from the petrol tank fill the carbs with a quality carb cleaner and leave overnight (or longer). Drain carbs and reattach petrol line.

Petrol smell


looks like your carburettor's giving out a rich fuel mix there or you've forgotten to turn off the choke get you carb tuned or jetted for better mileage (at a loss for speed - acceleration & power... if that's not important to you).,,
