  • Roger Jones Jan 06, 2013

    Many thanks Scott, but my problem is NOT the throttle cable, my guess is that the carburator has aquired some dirt and needs cleaning?

  • Roger Jones Jan 06, 2013

    Probably my bad composition of question but Tick-Over is where the engine is idling.

I dont know what you mean by tick, but the lack of the engine revving is most likely the throttle cable is broken or has became discontented at one end or the other.

I have a 125 pit bike and it ticks over fine but when you rev it it backfires does any body no how to fix it.

You can check ur values but some bike do make a we ticking from the values and it will back fire when revved up because of the extra fuel once revved that hasn't brine burn as it revs back down to idle speed.

Hi, I bought a brand new Keeway Outlook 125 jusy 5 weeks ago. Since I bought i had problems when starting it so they put in a new carburator that had a new automatic choke on it. I still have problems...

Is it normal that a new bike dies on you as you drive it? No way my friend. The carburetor should have a thermal-choke and it probably needs some adjustment.

Just check on your air ducts. When the bike is staionery it will idle rev and even run well on the dyno, but on the open road the airducts must be in and instadled or mounted correctly

Ticking noise and general engine noise after burnouts...

If he was doing burnouts it could be multiple problems - overheating, too many revs, drivetrain hammered.
Certainly a lot of burnouts can cause overheating - no air and lots of revs gets things hot really fast!
High revs can result in camchain issues, piston/valves coming together, broken rings, siezed pistons, broken bearings, and much more :)
Sorry to hear this - I suggest a trip to a bike mechanic to get a diagnosis before it gets worse and costs you a packet.

No problem just done top end rebuild

Just ride it normally. Avoid super high revs when the bike is not in gear and using the power.
