If it just starting happening, probably dirty carbs. If its been this way, you may need a carb sync. Also, check to make sure your carb boots are not dry rotted so they are sucking air. Take some wd-40 and spray around your carbs, especially around the mounting boots while the bike is running. If the rpms change while you do this, you probably have rotted boots or possibly just loose ones. But my first guess would be dirty carbs.

I have a Tomos a35 Sprint and I put a 70cc cylinder jug on it, a techno circuit pipe and I have a new carb. I up jetted it to a #58 and it starts only when the choke is down, once I take the choke off it...

You need to adjust the idle 1st.Main jet #58 is just for wide open throttle. Start by turning air screw all the way in "gently" till it stops, and back it out 1 and a half turns. Back out idle screw until slide is closed " not touching slide" . Turn until just contacts slide plus 1 full turn in opening slide. Start it up with the choke on and turn the air screw slowly in or out and slowly move the choke off till you can get it to run with the choke off. Than adjust idle screw " the one that moves the slide up and down to set the RPM. If you cant get her to idle with the choke off and the carb is air tight on the intake manifold. Carb might be to big. If you can get her to idle but it runs ruff I will try to help you tune the carb further. Good luck.

When I turn the key of the Honda cbf 600s nothing happens already checked the battery and some fuses under the seat

There is a master fuse located on the right-hand side of the bike by the starter relay. It's not obvious to find! There should be a spare fuse very close by in the soft rubber thing.

Cheers Rob
wind the screw in till it just stops [not hard]
then wind out about 1 & 3/4 turns that should be a close air fuel mix then adjust idle & mix till you get it right
Cheers Rob

2006 Harley ruff idle and hesitation acceleration

if i were you i would put an air cleaner kit on it. the screamin eagle one work fine. any time you open the exhaust you should open the air intake. it sould like you may have an intake leak they are very common.
spray the intake at the cylinder head with brake clean. ifno idle change. their good. if idle changes radically or dies out while spraying... you have an intake leak.

Bike wont idle and power constantly dieing and recovering

check to see if you have gas in the oil from a carb leaking down which will cause the idle speed to drop when motor warms up.pick up idle run for awhile then plugs you said a carby problem.
