Question about 2006 Enfield Bullet Electra

Cv carburetor is no longer sending gas

My cv carburetor was working up untill yesterday when the bike just shut off and it was then that i realized that i wasn't getting gas. I went to j&p cycles and bought a rebuild kit for the accelerator pump and still nothing. there's a little hole, what looks like a feed whole, there in the bottom but when i pull the accelorator, as opposed to shooting gas out of the top jet, it shoots it up from that same hole, is there a ball baring or a spring or a one way valve that supposed to be there that went missing?

Rodger that a part is missing J&P should have a break down of the carb in their book so you can find out what is missing

Need float specs fuel leeks out overflow on carb. hanging should it be right below the gasget at the toe or the seem?


I would suspect that your problem is something other than the float setting. If your carb has been running properly until recently, there may be trash in the needle and seat. Float settings don't just change by themselves. Once they're set, they stay that way until someone changes it. I'd be glad to send you the float settings but you didn't tell me what kind of carb you're running on the bike. Harley riders are noted for changing the type of carburetor they run on their bike. If you're running the stock Keihin carb, the float level has to be set with the carb on an angle. To illustrate this, I'd have to send you a picture. I'd be glad to do so if you're contact me directly as this forum only allows a file size of 150Kb or smaller. Contact me at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and I'll send you a picture of how to set the float level of the Keihin CV. If you are running a different type of carb, let me know and I'll send you information on that one as well if I have it.

Good Luck
Steve

Backfiring will not start without either


ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on 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 should be a screw on the lower side or bottom 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.

I have a Roketa 150cc Sicily Scooter (2006). It starts, idles rough, will not accept any throttle without quiting, warm or cold. Immediately will start again but will not stay running if you give it gas....


Here's the deal. I have never even heard of your bike brand but I have 18 years in bike repair. If you promise not to give me anything less than a "helpful" rating I will tell you how to do the fix based on the assumption that the bike has a standard carb and not a CV carb. The standard carb has a top "cap" that unscrews from the center of the carb body.

My dirt bike will not start i think its an electrical probel


Since the engine starts briefly I doubt if the electrics are the problem. Got gas? Got a bit of water in the gas tank / carburetor bowl / fuel petcock bowl?
