Question about 1998 Honda Deauville NTV 650
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

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.

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.
