SOURCE: wont run /idle

i'd start with removing the carbs and giving them a thorough cleaning as when bikes sit for so long, the carbs begin to get gummy/varnished from the old gas.

check for blocked holes in the pilot jet & main jet and look for "hard & dried up" gas in passages. be careful of the float bowl gasket as to not tear it or you will need a replacement.

SOURCE: Bike won't stay running

the knurled knob behind the choke knob at the outside of the choke mounting bracket is loose. Turn the knob to tighten the friction on the choke cable just enough to hold the choke in position until you push it in. Vulcans are cold blooded but the choke should remain in positin until you push it in.

SOURCE: when giving gas it wants to die. will not run

This is what happens when a motorcycle sits for a long time without being operated (sometimes in as little as six months of storage). Over time, the gasoline in the carburetor evaporates and leaves behind a tar like varnish which pluggs up the very small openings in the carburetor passageways and jets.
The carburetor will have to be completely disassembled and cleaned. Soak all of the metal parts in a commercially available carburetor cleaner (be sure to follow the directions and all warnings that come with it). Do NOT place any plastic or rubber carburetor parts in the cleaning solution, they'll be ruined.
Upon reassembly, be sure to blow out all of the carburetor passages with compressed air. Same with the carb jets, blow air through them and then hold them up to a light and make sure you can see through them.
Tip: I have found that Simple Green is capable of removing fuel varnish from carb parts with an overnight soak.

It sounds like your bike has been sitting in storage for an extended period of time (a year or more) - and the carburetors are plugged up. If this is the case, they will need to be completely disassembled and cleaned out.
If it hasn't been sitting (and the carbs aren't plugged up) then check that all of the normal tune-up items have been performed, especially valve adjustment, oil and filters, spark plugs, etc. If this fails to produce positive results, perform a compression check on the engine. Each cylinder must be able to produce at least 140 psi of compression in order to run and idle properly.

Engine stalls out when shutting off the choke


Hey Bill, ...........My crystal ball is working fine..
Sounds like you need a professional carb cleaning and setting.. when a bike won't run unless the choke is on, its either the carbs need cleaning, or you have developed an air leak.. if the bike has been sitting for a length of time..its the carbs...once you get the carbs cleaned and set...you should be fine.. if it does nor correct the issue..please reply to me on here... thanks.. please rate as helpful...

After start it backfires, sputters then runs


Hi,when starting bike you put the chock on,remeber this is to make a richer mixture for cold start,so when you start the bike put put the choke off a little bit as it warms up,other wise wat you are doing is couseing it to floud,so again as the bike warms up put the choke off little bit at a time,all the best.

Clean 1992 kawasaki zx11 carb


Sounds like the bike is struggling with being too lean.
The choke richens the mixture by increasing the fuel to air ratio
Often these old carbs get worn out and allow air in without going via the air box.
However I would look over the bike and ensure all cables and things are working properly. Ensure all gaskets, gromets and surfaces are seated properly.
Lastly cleaning the carb jets will ensure there are no blockages restricting fuel flow

1992, ZZR 600 stops after 10 km running. Possible solutions??


I would check the fuel tank air inlet pipe. If blocked it will create a vacuum and stop the flow of fuel.
Did the bike cough and run rough, like fuel starvation before it conked out? If so that is a clue to fuel starvation.

Will the ferrings off 06 zzr 600 bolt straight on to a 91 zzr 600


Im not sure about "bolt straight on" but it should be very close. most times bike models run for years without much major change. You may have to change a few brackets, or do a bit of bending and filing to get it to fit. The 06 ZZR has the twin headlights. I looked at some pictures carefully of the two different models. The frame is the same for both, so there is a good chance it will bolt straight on.

Heavy fuel mix is either blocked air filter or bad spark plugs, check condition of both, if nothing obvious then change spark plugs as they can appear fine but still be U/S, if problem still persists then you'll have to investigate further.

Bike has been standing for 18 months without the engine being spun. Bike will not start without choke. when choke is off engine stalls


You need to completely drain and refill the gas - the gas you have is stale and doesn't have enough power to run the bike.
The battery needs to be fully charged - not just jump started. It wouldn't hurt to do an oil and filter change as well as a air filter and plug change.
