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.

Suzuki samairi 1987,starts fine when Cooke go off or when engine worms up it dies will not idol at all.


the chock must be bad.
on all carb cars , since 1964 i remove it and make it a manual choke
then hot starts are easy, hot, its not touched. (instant starts hot)

chokes this old never work right, they are TOO old
the spring in side (bimetal) is NO GOOD. it fails to open properly.
try setting the choke calibration more lean.
if at higher altitude, even leaner.

the book is free. see it here
http://www.fixkick.com/sammi-stuff/index.html

The choke is a device on most old carbs (varies by country)
that closes a butterfly valve, (google that) and starves the engine of air, thus the word "CHOKE" as in Choking it.
this causes higher venturi vacuum and more fuel flows from the jet nozzles.
if the chock is set too rich the engine floods
if set too lean , you have to pump the gas pedal to keep it alive.
if the bimetal spring is slow, it floods
if the choke is electic the heater needs to work or the choke sticks on.
if the choke is water heated, the water needs to flow there. again
the motor floods and stalls.

rtm. read the chapter on the Choke, the book is free.

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?

I recently tuned up my blower. It starts great but if I turn it off Nd try to restart it it floods and will not start until I let it sit for awhile.


If the engine is warm and you shut it down, leave the choke off, lower the revs and start it. (when the choke is wide open you are using the fresh air coming in to dry the spark plugs and prevent flooding). If the motor is already flooded use that procedure to dry the plugs, then go back to full choke until it tries to start and quits again, then use half choke and pull one more time... works all the time.

I have a 1985 oldsmobile toronado and i was driving it all day yesterday and now diz moroning im trying to start it and it wont start for nothing i pump the gas, spray carburetor cleaner on it and it


If it won't start, then pumping the gas and using carb cleaner may make it worse. Carb cleaner is not the same as starting fluid. It will make the engine harder to start. If it's flooded, then pumping the gas will only flood it more. If you need to de-flood, then press the accelerator pedal ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR and HOLD it there while cranking. Don't pump it.
Have you looked at the top of the carburetor while someone cranks the engine? Does the choke close when you press the accelerator for the first (and only) time? You state that you replaced the choke; do you mean the electric choke spring? Is it adjusted correctly? You need to know the choke setting for it to work properly.
Then again, it may have nothing to do with the choke. Do you have spark at the plugs? Have you checked the fuel filter?

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

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?
