As i remember yhe choke is not adjustable
this is asimple carb and may just benefit a simple strip and clean.The carb flooding may just be down to the float jet not seating properly due to dirt on the seat
hope this helps

99 FXDWG, Choke cable broke, bike stalled then wouldn't start. I fixed the choke cable but bike still won't start. Any ideas?


"Crank" and "turn over" mean exactly the same thing. I think you mean it won't "fire". How did your choke cable break on the highway? You shouldn't have been pulling (closing) the choke at that point - does that ride have other issues?

It might be flooded now - try letting it sit for several hours, then try starting with the throttle WIDE OPEN and no choke - that helps clear extra gas out of the cylinders.

You might also need to pull the spark plugs and dry them out thoroughly.

Bike is totally choked


You mean flooded (with too much gas)?

You said the carbs were cleaned.
Did it work ok after that, or is that when the problem started?
Do you use the choke to start it when cold? When warm/hot? not at all because you figure its getting too much gas as it is?

Pulled the choke bike wont start


Usually if you flood it (by overchoking), you open the throttle wide open (to draw in more air to lean the mixture) while cranking starter.
Beings you had the spark plugs out you could have cranked it then, and let the engine compression blow the excess gas out the spark plug holes.

Hi, I?ve got an 88 K75S which runs well but when cold has problems starting. My local mechanic has had a look and can?t find the problem. The battery was changed 3 months ago, new plugs have recently been...


your BMW75 has a cold start sensor fitted to its fule system the choke leaver dose nothing but raze the reves a little its not a choke,,,thats withing the fule system if the sensor is not working right it wont tell the fule pump to enrich the fule mix and it will be hard to start from cold,,also if you start the bike up you must run it till its hot or the choke will stay on and flood up the engine the next time you try to start up
the choke sensor is in the water jaket, try changing this part first

Honda 1986 vt1100c shadow... will start on choke, but shuts down when i push the choke out... if i leave it on it floods the engine... i have tried giving it a little throttle while pushing the choke out...


You need some carb work (or should I say fuel delivery system?) on this classic motorcycle. You might get away with using some fuel injector cleaner - I would try this first - to dlean the carb (fuel delivery system)

How is your gas? Fresh?

It can be frustrating to try to solve this type problem. Good luck. You can always take it to the Honda Shop ... it is getting colder now, ya know.

Anyway, good riding to you my friend. Thank you for posting at FixYa.com. Please vote

Last time I STARTED MY VSTAR 1100 I CHOKED IT FOR 10 SECONDS ON HIGH THEN MOVED TO MEDIUM CHOKE FOR 4 THEN TOOK OFF AT NO CHOKE. 2 WEEKS LATER. I started up bike Choke on high bike barely wanted to idle...


Sounds like your flooding it out with the choke out. Try the next time you go to start the bike when it's cold with the choke out and when it starts push the choke all the way in and keep it running with the throtle. If it runs better after doing this then your flooding it on start up. Use 1/2 choke to start cold and see what it does. Good Luck

Bike not kick starting


I think your mate is right try pushing the bike to get it going then once fired up & cleared out should be fine. Put choke on full kick fully 2x then take choke off completely, kick again.

Cbr 125 choke problem


It sounds like the choke line may not have been routed correctly when the new one was installed. Remove the gas tank and check to see that the line is not being stretched anywhere along the way AND that the gas tank when re-installed is not stretching the line. The line may have been kinked when installed. Look at the mechanical movement of the choke at the carb. Does it operate freely? Remove the air filter and look inside the center of the carb, (you may need to use a small mirror for this), does it look like the choke is opening and closing properly when the choke is moved on and off?
