To clean the carb, I would mix in some Seafoam, about 1 teaspoon per gallon. Do that to a full tank, and run that till it's almost empty, if the carb needs cleaning, that might help until you get the time to disassemble the clutch.

    Edit to my previous response, I meant to say disassemble the carb, not clutch, was on the phone with a friend talking about his motorcycle.

Ok so my Suzuki Marauder 800 backfires all the time now. It also will feel like it loose power then all of a sudden takes off.


Get the fueling set up on a rolling road. Bike makers set the fueling up to match the exhaust they fit. Your new exhaust will have less backpressure and this will cause popping when you close the throttle to slow down. It will also cause hesitation when you accelerate.

I have a 1980 Suzuki GS 1100. The starter relay clicks but thats it. It would start. I replace it with a new one and still the same thing. What could it be? Thanks


If you hear the starter relay click, but not turn over the motor that's a classic low/dead battery situation. There is only enough power left for the battery to click the starter but is not powerful enough to actually turn the engine over.

three ways you can deal with this issue.
First replace the battery.
Second give the battery a charge using either a battery charger or the more common battery trickle charger (battery tenderizer) which most motorcycle owners use to keep their bikes battery charged over long periods of non use like the winter. If you have a tenderizer just hook it up to the battery, plug it into the wall and let it trickle charge for about 12-16 hours or so and then try again.

If the starter is actually turning over but you arent gettting the engine to fire then it has to be one of the only two remaining variables that we need for combustion, spark and fuel. check you spark plugs for excessive wear, carbon buildup or damage, and then check the spacing or just replace them. if you see a spark when you fire the starter than its not a plug issue.

Finally fuel. Is there gas in the tank? can you hear the fuel pump click on once you turn the key to on? is the line creased or corroded, if you unplug the line do you see fuel being pumped in?

those are your three possibilities.

Another easy thing to try to check if it is a batteyr issue and you don't have a charger is to try push starting the bike

  1. First, make sure that your bike isn't starting just because you are out of gas. If you're out of gas, this will not work.
  2. Make sure the key is in the on position
  3. Put the bike in 2nd gear
  4. Hold the clutch in and begin pushing, preferably downhill, but it will work elsewhere as well.
  5. Once you've gathered enough momentum, apply a minimal amount of throttle (not too much or the bike will get away from you) and hop on the bike just as you release the clutch.
  6. Rev the engine a bit so your bike doesn't conk out.
  7. Ride away.

Have a 1999 ktm 65 sx we have spark and its getting gas but cannt get it to fire can u please help us.


Does she seam to have good compression? The standard rules apply, fuel, spark/timing, compression. If you have fuel in the chambers and you believe the spark is right, next worry is compression. How good are the rings. If she has been sitting for a time the piston / rings may still be a bit dry or maybe a bit stuck. mix a bit of gas with a bit of oil and again squirt into the cylinders, or use wd40; down the spark plug hole and spin the engine, and let it sit a bit before trying to start it. . That is about all you can do to find out what is going on. Be sure you are getting fuel into the chambers, get a syringe and spray it in past the throttle valves.

It cranks good...idles good...will not take gas...i cleaned the carbs...and put new plugs in...it acts like the right cylinder is not firing properly...it's exhaust is almost cold ...the right cylinder...


cylinder head is getting red hot because it's running lean. Check to see if there is an aftermarket fuel filter in the fuel line somewhere, also the float hight in the carbs are set right. Also drain the fuel tank and apply fresh fuel. Check to see if the tank is rusted, also if it has a device at the bottom of the gas tank that turns on and shuts off the fuel (petcock) it's possible it has a fuel flilter in there as well.

*Note if you take the petcock off you will more than likely have to replace agasket for it. Given the age of the bike it will be hard to find a gasket.

2001 v star 650 classic won't idle after being stored


You have a gummed up mainjet. Always store a gas engine with Staybul gas additive to avoid this problem in the future. Now, on to the current problem. Since the bike will at least idle your in luck. Just go down to an auto parts store and get a can of Sea Foam. I usually find it at NAPA it's a white can that looks like it came from a gas station in the 1940's Because it did. Mechanics have been useing it for years. Anyway, dump about half the can in the tank with a couple gallons of gas and fire it up. Let it idle a long time. Then start trying to ride it. You may have to let it set over night if it's really gummed up but it will clean it out. Easy fix, and you can leave it in with no problems. Happy motoring.

Hard to start cutting out 2007 r1 starts up but wont tick over, cuts out occaisionallly when stopping at a junction


hi, if the 2007/2008 r1 spins fast but chgs and has to be coakst with the throttle to keep running and cuts out when the throttle is closed then it maybee due to the battery, i have fixed lots of them now afterm much fault finding by fitting a new genuine or yuasa battery. The problem is that all the power is being used to spin the engine and even once started there is not enough voltage to fire the spark and injectors properly and the charging system has not yet been able to pull the battery up. REPLACE THE BATTERY IT WILL SORT IT, PAUL (YAMAHA DEALER)

My engine turns but doesn start, burning rich gas


Doubt its plugs, if it fires up when you can smell gas the plugs are working when pretty wet so if working ok then they are probably fine.

Sorry I cannot help much more but if you do pull the plugs out, check they are sparking when ever you engage the starter not just after your on/off fiddle with the ignition

My 2008 kfx450r wont stay running. when i finally get it started i can pin the throttle wide open for a few seconds but it dies like its not getting fuel please help any info i will take


ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Open the petcock, (gas valve), and drain 1/2 cup of gas from the tank. Did the fuel flow freely? Is there any water or trash in the cup?

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower right side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Check the float height. The fuel level in the bowl may be low. Bend the tang (in the center of the float) downward to raise the fuel level. EASY, a little bend goes along way.
Put the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.
