Throttle bogs down like its starving for gas or air. plugs been changed new rebuilt motor and trans, carb taken off and gaskets cleaned what could cause my motorcycle to keep doing this


there is a coating in fuel tank these bits loosen and go into carbs and block all jets, if you havent done this and this fixes problem you best put an inline fuel filter on bike to stop debris going into carb, these filters are good for a thousand miles i would recommend a car on like they used to have on old minis they are £1.98 on ebay

Had carbs rebuilt and suppose synced but bike starts hard and when running backfires whin you let off the throttle


1. choke circuits still plugged up or carbs not cleaned correctly; most people that attempt to clean their own carbs do not have the proper equipment to do it with. Most carbs have really small orifice(jets) and require really small jet drills/orifice cleaners to clear them out. Cleaning them in a caustic soak tank will clean them out but the carbs must be taken completely apart or it will damage any gaskets or rubbers parts left in it. Carb cleaning should be left to professionals unless one has experience doing it.

2. Open/broken vacuum lines can make it hard to start and backfire when letting off the throttle; jets that are not cleaned out correctly can also make it backfire.

3. If the backside of the inlet grommets are not sealed at the flange and have a vacuum leak, that will cause hard starting and backfire also; this applies to carbs with a flange style grommet. If the intake grommets are cracked or leaking it too will cause hard starting and backfire. Remove the carbs, wipe the head and mating flange surfaces with laquer thinner, let it dry and then reseal the grommets back to the head with rtv silicone rubber. Make sure to wipe any excess rtv(before it drys) from down inside the port before putting the carbs back on.

1982 Yamaha Seca Turbo (XJ650LJ) Had the carbs


Mine was stored for 20 years, I ended up replacing the seat and needles, cleaning them thoroughly and when I tried starting it, nothing!! No gas was going to the carbs, it turned out to be my gas pump, it was seized by the old gas remains 'varnish' so I had to clean it numerous times, soaked it in gas cleaner (short period at a time 15 minutes or so, being a very powerful cleaner, you cannot leave it for long without causing greater problems, thus I was able to get the pump going by boosting it with my car batterie, having more cranking amps directly to the pump, the pump was able to release itself from the old crusty varnish.

Will crank and run for a second but stop then gas


Engine is flooding, need to pull the carbs and clean them. Carbs need to be taken apart, the jets removed and cleaned out. The low speed jets, the small ones, have a very small hole in them use a single bristle out of a wire brush to clean it out, do not make the holes any bigger. once you get the jets cleaned out, put em back in, reassemble the carbs, reinstall and have a good ride.

My '79 xs650 is popping thru the exhaust. It was fine last year except for leaking petcocks. I cleaned the taps and put new K&L kits in each side. Still have some trouble with leak thru to the carbs....


reset float levels and make sure that your needle and seat is not leaking and check that you have no air leaks on your inlet rubbers.

clean the carb properly and remove all fuel jets , needle jet and air screws before blowing out.

Bike won't start 92 yamaha fzr 600


Sounds like the plugs are fouled out, I would pull them and make sure they're about the color of a paper bag. If they're all sooty and wet you most likely have a rich condition. I would take the carbs out and clean everything and pop in a new set of plugs. I have a 87 Fz600 that was acting up until I cleaned the carbs.

Rebuilt carbs-starts and idles but wont rev up without choke on


sounds like the main jets are partly pluged, you must remve all brass jets and seats including needle jet and its slide soak in carb cleaner and blow out with compressed air only.. hold up to bright light to verify if all are clean. jim
