What to do to correct the problem of my bike will start run 1 to 2 min then quit I can give it gas it still does it wait 5 min it will do the same thing again.

Hi David check the fuel supply from the tank. Turn off the tap then pull the pipe off the tap or carb then turn fuel on there should be a good steady flow if not there is a blockage. There is a filter in the tank you will need to remove the tank and then the fuel tap. Also check along the fuel line for blockage. And make sure the vent in the filler cap is ok. Regards Jim...

Cutting out

Almost sounds like a vacuum lock ("it feels like it running out of fuel"), like the gas tank isn't venting.
Air has to be allowed into the gas tank to replace the fuel leaving it.

Next time it dies, open/take off gas cap and see if it fires up right away, instead of having to wait 10 minutes.

If that works, start looking at the vent lines and see if it's plugged, or a one-way valve isn't working, or the line is pinched.

Runs for anywhere from a few miles to 10 miles then just ...chug chug chug ...shuts off, then wont start again usually. may start after setting for 30 min.

There is a drain plug at the bottom outside edge of each carb float bowl. Drain the carbs. Chances are condensation from the gas tank is partially filling the float chamber. tombones49_226.gif

I have a 1995 Honda CBR 600 f3. I was told not to put Stabil in the fuel tank for winter storage. Is this correct? What should I be using?

Stabil is fine, The other option is to not turn on the fuel to the engine, and syart it and let it run out of gas. If you have fuel bowl drain plugs, drain the fuel bowel.

Sounds like the fuel pump is getting too hot and then it's causing vapour lock, therefor starving the engine. After the bike shuts off the fuel pump cools down it's allowing the fuel to flow once again. On my 2000 V11 Sport I solved this by shielding the fuel pump with an insulated foil wrap from a car parts store. Now the fuel pump stays cooler and I never had vapour lock again. Of course if your fuel pump is located in the gas tank then my suggestion will not help. Hope this helps.

Have baja 125 motorsport idels fine but when throddle up it dies

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher at hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There may be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!
