Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Starts fine and runs but why do rpms go up and down with some loss of power?

Could be the valve in the carby. Had a similar problem with my Victa. Have a look on the internet for briggs and Stratton engine carby service. It was really helpful. Your carby may be different but the info I found was very helpful and explains how the power valve operates and what to do to prevent surges and power loss.

My bike sat for a couple months, now I need to know How to drain the gas

Disconnect the fuel line at the carby with fuel tap off. Put loose end into a container and turn on fuel tap. ( doesn't make a big mess that way) now you wait until it's empty, refill tank, flush fuel line a little, reconnect fuel line, then you might need to drain the fuel bowl on the carby as well using the screw to one side ( the bottom one removes the fuel bowl, you only want to drain it) DONE!

Cranks only runs with full choke at idle

Sounds like main jet is blocked or the float seat is jammed or stuck this can happen for two main reasons
1)leaving fuel for extended periods eg winter break 2) water in fuel
Exploded diagram of carbie will help. Normally you would remove fuel bowl from bottom of carbie this is either clipped or screw in center of bowl . the gasket can hold bowl in position a gentle tap gets it off. the jet is normally screwed in to the same piece of casting as the screw for the bowl and is removed by a slot head screwdriver Note when sticking screwdriver up hole make sure it is small enough so it does not damage thread inside casting remove jet and clean with a fine wire or a jet cleaner.( they can be bought from a camping supply store ) then screw back in.
The float is held in by a loose pin, when the bowl is off the pin can be removed, the float will fall off and so will the seat so be careful. the seat is small and is loosely attached to the float but will not stay connected to it.clean the seat and reassemble. Best to be done by removing carbie and placing on clean bench.Only some times can it be done in position. PS this is the same for most small engine. If you turn fuel off and run engine dry as apposed to turning off the ignition for long breaks this problem will tend not to happen

Why does my motorcycle stall when i slow down and dies when im riding normal speed after like 15 sec into the ride and it doesnt seem like its getting all of its power when u gag on throttle

Your fuel petcock (on/off tap) may be restricting fuel flow and the carbies may need to be cleaned.
To maximise fuel flow thru a dirty fuel filter or restricted fuel flow thru a contaminated carby jet, disconnect fuel hose from tank and drain remaining fuel in carbies into a glass and inspect for contaminates. Take off float bowls and spray ($8 retail 400g aerosol spraycan carby cleaner) cleaner down fuel line/hose until it pours out of carbies. Allow to evaporate. Replace fuel filter (there may be a cylinder of white mesh gause inside of fuel hose) and check bottom of tank for rust, scale or debris. Try fresh fuel, new sparkplugs (0.8mm gap) and ensure choke is functioning correctly. Check camchain tensioner is not loose. Keep battery fully charged, replace if the bike can't achieve this when running with no lights.. This link will give you diagrams to help you out.

Got a arquin 250 motor bike ,starving for fuel ,and running really rough loosing power .when i go out it for hour its fine then its plays up real bad .is it the carburetor????

It will be the carby, it sounds like either you have got some dirt in the jets which need cleaning. It is either that or you have got some bad fuel from somewhere. It would be an idea to fit a fuel filter to capture any rubbish picked up from Service Stations. Firstly though a thorough clean of the Carbies would be the go.

Hi, This is probably a simple question but it has me baffled. I bought a cx500 1981 custom last week and I have had a couple of teething problems. The main one being that she looses power - at full...

you definately have a fuel problem .
clean your tank first as deposits in the tank might have made way to the carbi .
the fuel/air mixture is one thing but your bike may have also oil burning issues .
try first by making sure the carbies are clean , fuel tank clean , the air mixture adjustment is tricky but usually screw the air mixture screw on the carbi all the way in and undo it 1.5 turn back and no more .
try that first and see how you go . the vaccum menbrane in the carbi may be defective too and may have to be changed .
have a look at all that and see how you go

Carbies willn't set float level,right floods,left sets to low

I don't know if its any help but I've fixed my Honda with similar problem. It turns out I reassembled the rich carbys air cut off valve incorrectly. Have you checked yours? I'm wondering if the cut off valves somehow affect the other parts of the carbys. Mine is running sweet now.
