Clean the air filter and, if you have one, remove the water trap bowl on the fuel petcock and clean it. How good is the battery? Install new STOCK plugs. Bear in mind it may be time for carb kits. Other than your cleaning the carbs, the carb kits and balancing and synchronizing of the carbs are best left for the shop to do.

Check the exhaust pipes. If there is a restriction in the burned gases exiting the tailpipe then the bike will not run right, will loose power and even die if too much back pressure builds up. Disconnect the exhaust system and tick off the neighbors with a quick ride around the block without a muffler. If the engine still dies then exhaust is not likely to be the problem.

Check the compression on all cylinders. Depending on the compression, the bike may be ready for a valve job. If you pull the head for the valve job then you might as well consider re-boring the cylinders and install new pistons and rings. Bear in mind, doing a valve job and / or pistons is not recommended for the novice. The good part is that when the work is finished you will effectively have a new engine.

SOURCE: Won't idle without choke

The pilot jet controls the air/gas fuel mix at idle . If the jet gets plugged up not enough gas gets to the emgine at idle. You will need to remove the carbs and float bowls and clean them, paying special attention to the pilot valve. Count the number of turns to remove the pilot screw and replace the same number of turns then turn counter clockwise 1/2 turn.

Check the battery should be 12V or more , Then check the coils the connections are under the gas tank make sure they are securely connected.
What kind of fuse box do you have? The glass fuses? Or did you replace the fuse box. If it is the glass fuses you need to replace with a new fuse box.
Check the kill switch and the side stand switch.
Check the coils too..

Sounds like it may be drawing air around the intake somewhere. Let it idle and spray around carefully with wd-40 until it speeds up. This will reveal the leak.

Stored over winter. New battery fresh fuel wont start. Doesnt seem 2 be a spark peugeot speedfight 2 03. Any advice thanks clive


When gas sits it will, turn to a gel to make it simple. this can block the very small holes in the carb. There is a very simple way to check if the motor will run without taken everything apart. remove the air filter, get yourself a can of carb spray, brake cleaner, or wd-40. Open the throttle the whole way and spary which ever one you choose to use into the air intake let the throttle go and try to start the motor. if it starts then you know you have a fuel problem. If not then the next thing to check is the spark plug, remove the spark plug from the motor, place the spark plug cap back on the spark plug put the spark plug on the motor and spin the motor with the starter and see if you get spark. If you go you know that you have a fuel issue. check this out and lme know what you find if you need help with cleaning the carb let me know.

Replace fuel filter after cleaning tank thouroughly, to clean tank remove fuel line at carb. Drain all fuel then leave line loose until you flush tank with carb. Cleaner then blow out tank with compressed air. Now install new fuel filter and check your fuel can for trash and water better yet just add fresh fuel.

If the air filter is clean, then you have either no spark or no gas. Gummed up carberators are well familiar with the leaf blowers. Once a year or every other year you should clean up your carb. During the winter season when your not using the blower, it is a good idea to put a 1/2 bottle of Stabil in the gas tank which will prevent carb gum-up while being stored.
You can remove the spark plug, put it back on the wire, lay the bottom of the plug next to a metal surface. Then pull the motor over while you observe for a good strong spark. If you have a good strong spark, then the problem is with the fuel.
If you have no spark, weak spark, or intermittent spark, then either the coil could be bad, plug could be bad, or you may even have a shorted kill switch.
Either no gas or no spark is your problem. Spark is easiest to check. If spark is good, remove and clean your carberator out thuroughly

Sounds like you have a stuck float needle in the carbs (2). Usually after a few days with gas in the carb they will free up, you could 'knock' on the carbs with the plastic end of a screwdriver to help free them up. If not, turn off fuel, drain the carbs and fill them with carb cleaner for 24 hours. Redrain, attach fuel lines and turn the gas back on. If still no start it's time for a rebuild...

You shouldn't notice a difference if you remove the air filter. So I would replace it. Also if you are using compressed air to clean or blow-out the carb. Be careful, its not recommended and could make it worse.

Poulan 6.75 Lawn mower will not start


Remove spark plug, clean and dry. Replace plug. Remove air filter. Spray WD-40 into carb opening; one second blast. Turn over engine, (pull handle). Engine should start briefly and run for 3 seconds.  If not, you are not getting spark to spark plug. If engine starts, you have a dirty carb and you can buy a rebuild kit from manufacture.

Stihl weed eater runs 2min. then stop


Stihl weedeater was running and stopped suddenly. Put in a new fuel filter and cleaner air filter with soap and water. Checked spark plug and it appeared fine. Started the weedeater, ran for a second or so and stopped. Spark plug wasn't gas fouled. Could it be the carburetor needing new diaphram gasket and spring.
