The First thing you have to NOT DO, is try to start it if it has been sitting for any long duration of time, 6 months or more, second, you have to remove the gas tank, drain the contents, into a can you can see in, look for a dark brown colored corpusal, in the gas, if there is some, that is an indication, that your carbs need to come apart, unless you are a seasoned mechanic, you will have to remove the carb, take the bowl off, of course you will look for the brown couloured substance again, clean the bowl,remove the pin, holding the float in placebeing carfule to secure the needle valve in its proper place after cleaning it thouroughly, remove the jet, using a tiny bit, you reem the jet hole center, taking care not to bore it out, the you run the bit in the jet hole, cleaning any debri that may be there, use carb cleaner and keep spraying it in all in puts and out puts the carb may have, then if you put your mouth to the feul input to the carb, blow in it to be sure it is clear, if not youl have to use carb cleaner and air to clean it out, air and carb cleaner is the key to cleaning it properly, some carbs need to be taken apart and soaked in a carb cleaner, before reassembly, just keep blowing air in all the inputs and out puts, to be sure they are cleared, reassemble and GO

I've had good results by boiling a clogged up carb and then cleaning it with toothbrush, toothpicks and individual nylon bristles. The first time I used washing powder (for colored's, because its got less bleach) in an aluminium pan, but that gave the carb body an etched look. Not a real problem but it might have been if I'd done it for longer. The second time I used distilled water in a stainless steel pan with washing-up liquid. Didn't clean so well but it seemed less corrosive. I remove small parts like needles and jets and soak them in carb cleaner in a glass bottle with a metal cap. I don't like spraying carb cleaner around because its quite toxic and not very effective used like that. If you rub the bottle against another one the glass-glass friction generates ultrasonics which MAY help the process. but I've found the jets usually need boiled, blown, and perhaps poked through in addition. I don't have compressed air (the standard blow-through recommendation) available so I use a hypodermic syringe to blast the washing water through. This generates quite a high pressure jet, but, as Lou Read has observed, the needle can do some damage if you arent careful. I think reaming out the jets with a drill bit is an absolute last resort when all else fails. You are VERY likely to damage the jet like that. I use a nylon bristle, or, in extremis, a fine hypodermic needle blowing wash water.

The carburator prolly needs to be cleaned out. Try some carb cleaner through the gas tank first.

I purchased a 1995 GPZ 1100 Kawasaki motorbike. It has 10,000 miles. It been sitting for the pass 14yrs. It was started occasionally for time to time. I?ve had the tank, and carburetors professionally...


Hope you drained the oil and also changed the oil filter.
This problem of cutting off is a carburator/fuel related issue.
I guess the fuel might not be pouring in to the float chambers faster enough.
Try this, remove the air -filter and thn start the engine and as it is about to cut off, block the intake(by your palm) at the carburators and see what happens...taking care not to over block it as the gas may pour out and also flood in the combustion chamber rendering it to shut off due to to much fuel.
If it does respond and stay running thn the problems is tht the carbs are not getting the gas as required and probabley you may have to recheck the float level, the float pin,carb synchro, air-fuel mixture.
Check the pet- c o c k too.
Hope this helps!

My AJS Raptor Regal 125 motorbike - idle problems. I have just bought the bike and i cant seem to get it to idle properly and the engine keeps cutting out when i let go of the accelerator. How do i solve...


try to clean your carburator..maybe it is full of dirt or rust..but if you cleaned already and the problem is still there,i think you need to replace your carburator..but also check your engine,sometimes the answer of the problem you incountered is that the block need a reboring because it is already lost compression..
