Open Question

Honda Deauvllle NtV 700, runs unevenly then stops

Bike has only 3000 miles on it but has not been run for sixmonths. starts from cold but as it warms up it starts to run unevenly and then dies. I took this bike out for a 15mile run with no problems but it died at just as I arrived home (very lucky). I suspect the carb needs cleaning, I'm not mechanically minded, is there any quick fix to clean this such as an additive to the fuel. Thanks

SOURCE: i have a 2002 honda vtx 1800 will not idle but loads with gas

Check for a blocked airbox vent, sometime we put things under the seat that will cover the airbox inlet which will automatically make the bike run extremely rich and all that needs to be done is to remove the paper or gloves or whatever there is blocking the inlet snorkel. You may also want to check for tight intake valves too. That is classic Honda, tight valves will cause a rich mixture all the time if it is the intake valves making the problem.
Please let me know if this works, if not give me more specific data and I will better assist you.

SOURCE: will only run with full choke and absolutely no throttle.

Carbs gummed up. Need a serious cleaning or a full ruubers replacement/rebuild kit. Gas turns to gummy when left stting in the fuel bowls.

Use a couple of cans of Sea Foam.. best stuff in the world.

SOURCE: bike won't start

Check compression ratio and valves clearance.The carbs leak any fuel from their o-rings.Spray through the air box with a carb cleaner spray while pressing start button but little bit at a time.Don't twist the throttle too much and always use choke until she fires up for good.

your carb needs to be cleaned/rebuilt,the jets are clogged from the old fuel,if the fuel that was in the tank had a really bad smell,then the fuel is bad,and what was in the tank is also inside of carb.(carb kit).

First make sure that the bystarter is indeed functional: look at it, it should move when powered. Simple test to confirm that: remove the screws that hold the unit into the carb, and lift the choke slightly out of the carb body while cranking the engine : if it runs, then the carb is ok, choke is not. If necessary remove the air filter, put your hand in front of the carburetor to choke it even more and then start the motor.
If the engine dies even now then the problem is in the carburetor: either the idle is badly adjusted or the level in the bowl is too low.

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.

Honda shadow vt1100c 1986 idile to low after running awhile

There's an idle adjustment screw. The bike runs faster when cold because the fuel\air adjustment is richer on a cold engine. When the bike warms up, the fuel becomes more lean in mixture because the heat causes the fuel to expand, i.e., less molecules of fuel to the firing sequence of the piston. When the bike is warmed up, after say ten minutes, the heat causes a leaner mixture, so adjust the idle on a hot engine (about 1000 rpm more or less). The bike will idle faster when cold, then drop rpm's as the engine warms up. Good luck

My x reg honda 650 deauville wouldnt start the other night at about 2100 hours. I knows it been freezing and its been out in the cold but i had no problems starting that morning even when covered in ice....

The possibilities are many in a cold start problem such as you have listed. First the battery even though it appears to be working my be low in actual cranking power. If the battery is five years old or older this is a great possibility. What happens id the battery turns the starter with every once of power it has but leaves no power to operate the electronic ignition. If the battery is newer then another possibility is a dirty starter motor drawing more power then "normal" there for depriving the ignition. Also don't forget that the starter, engine oil and state of battery charge are all affected by the cold, just turning the engine over with the starter can kill a motorcycle battery is a few crank. Motorcycles are heavily warm weather bias so, it wasn't designed or built to run cold. The engine oil you run in summer months is a higher viscosity then what should be used in colder weather. My Honda Magna 750 at +8c can be just ignorant to start and also needs a long warm up time before pulling away. So my "Rule of Thumb" now is when the temperature reaches +10c I park the motorcycle.

1987 Magna VF 700 Bike stalls when its cold outside

just a common thing in cold weather, sometimes you have to ride about 5 miles with choke half out, till the engine warms up. try draining your carbys or cleaning them out, sounds like ti could be running abit lean and not getting enough fuel

Missing, back firing just working really bad!

im not certain as i dont have a maintanance manual for that bike, but intake valve clearance should be approx .004 and exhaust valves should be appxox .008 also you may consider taking the coils to a shop and have them tested. coils after warming up will begin to fail once they start to go bad. spark will be great when the bike is cold, but once it warms up, spark begins to fade and hit and miss.. this may be the problem. hope this helps.
