Overflow is the sign of a float stuck or the fuel inlet valve that the float runs is stuck or has a buggar in it. Black smoke is a sign of a rich mixture, which may also be from a stuck float/fuel inlet valve. Still carb problems, there.

Howdy I have a Suzuki 93 katana 1100 whene I start it with choke on it idles good but whene I take the choke off and give it gas it makes a bogging sound soon giving it more gas the bogging goes away


A good chance you have a partially plugged slow speed circuit in the carbs. When the choke is on you are restricting air and getting more gas, when you give it more gas and get beyond the slow speed into the high speed it clears up. My guess is the bike has been run and let sit with Ethanol fuel in it. Probably will take a carb cleaning to straighten it out. Also on that vintage get Ethanol free fuel if at all possible and run a fuel stabilizer additive such as Startron or Stabil as well.

I have a 1991 FZR 1000 and it bogs out when you pull the throttle back but if you feather the throttle it will take off no problem or if you give it a lot of throttle when first taking off. Any ideas how...


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables misaligned or misrouted.
2. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
3. Intake system air leak.
4. Vacuum piston malfunction.
5. Pinholes or torn diaphragm.
6. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
7. Plugged bowl vent or overflow.
8. Fuel level in bowl too low.
9. Restricted fuel supply passages.
10. Plugged jets or passages.
11. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
12. The enrichner valve not seated or leaking.

I HAVE A 1999 HONDA CBR600F4. IT HAD BEEN SITTING FOR 2 YEARS AND HAD BAD GAS IN IT. I REPLACED THE BATTERY, REPLACED THE PLUGS, CLEANED OUT THE CARBS WITH CARB CLEANER. GOT IT TO RUN AFTER ALOT OF STARTS....


first,your over heating the starter, hope its still good. 2nd, running carb cleaner thru will not clean the whole carb, only lite deposits. You need to pull the jets, and clean then, thats where your problem is. Jets have a very small hole to atomize the gas, and need to be clean.

2001 kx 85 has sever low end hesitation. I can't tune it to save my live. won,t idle properly. when at idle if you crack the throttle it will bog and then rev up


Hello you have a
1. fuel starvation problem clogged carburetor jets.(clean the carb)
2. Intake leak carb joint/intake manifold.( start your motor get it to idle best you can spray wd40 around the carb joint if the rpms change you have a leak replace the carb joint or gasket/o-ring as needed.
3. crankshaft main seal magneto side leaking or worn main bearing.
check end play on the magneto side remove the cover plate firmly grab the end of the shaft with up an down motion if you can feel it move replace the main bearings and seals.
These are problem that will cause your motor to run lean and hesitate.
Hope this helps you with your problem

Yz 150f bogs when you give full throttle all at once


ok, assuming you replaced the carb header and stator with aftermarket parts, then I would say you definitely have a jetting issue. that flat spot is coming from your engine starving for fuel. its taking the gas too long to get from the carb to the engine. you would fix this by adjusting the idle mixture on the carb. the first thing I would do is look for the fuel mixture screw on the carb. im not familiar with your specific model. but the screw is usually found facing down on the bottom of the carb, directly in front of the bowl. when you find it, turn it counter clockwise about 1/2 turn at a time until that flat spot fades away. if that doesnt work, then you will need to up the size of the pilot jet inside the carb. maybe 1 or 2 sizes would be enough. if you replaced the carb with a bigger carb, then you may not be able to fix this problem. in my experience, larger carbs will increase power, but usually throttle response, especially low end, suffers considerably. the reason for this is lower intake velocity and vacuum. basically, with a bigger carb it takes a second longer for the fuel to be drawn from the carb and properly atomize with the air. hope this helps.if I overlooked anything let me know! some more info on the engine/modifications and carb/jet sizes would help too. good luck.
