How do you remove the bowl when there are no screws

It is a motovox 70cc bike that will only stay on while the choke is on full, but i cannot remove the bowl to clean the jets because the screws have rounded heads

Those screws have to come out no matter what! Try using needle nosed vice grips to get a grip on the outer edge of each screw. If they slide off, you may have to file flat spots on the sides of the screws. Another way is to cut grooves in the heads of the screws with a Dremel motor tool and grinding disk. Another way is touse the Dremel to grind the heads completely off and slide the bowl over the remaining stems.. No matter what you do, use NEW screws in reassembly. Make sure the screws are metric! Good Luck!

    using the Dremel tool worked perfectly. an excellent idea. and of course the "new screws" were resuable. thanks again!

Cranks only runs with full choke at idle


Sounds like main jet is blocked or the float seat is jammed or stuck this can happen for two main reasons
1)leaving fuel for extended periods eg winter break 2) water in fuel
Exploded diagram of carbie will help. Normally you would remove fuel bowl from bottom of carbie this is either clipped or screw in center of bowl . the gasket can hold bowl in position a gentle tap gets it off. the jet is normally screwed in to the same piece of casting as the screw for the bowl and is removed by a slot head screwdriver Note when sticking screwdriver up hole make sure it is small enough so it does not damage thread inside casting remove jet and clean with a fine wire or a jet cleaner.( they can be bought from a camping supply store ) then screw back in.
The float is held in by a loose pin, when the bowl is off the pin can be removed, the float will fall off and so will the seat so be careful. the seat is small and is loosely attached to the float but will not stay connected to it.clean the seat and reassemble. Best to be done by removing carbie and placing on clean bench.Only some times can it be done in position. PS this is the same for most small engine. If you turn fuel off and run engine dry as apposed to turning off the ignition for long breaks this problem will tend not to happen

My 2002 honda xr200r will only start with full choke on and at that I must play with throttle


Although there are three positions to the choke, full choke is applied in the Up position. If you are having problems starting the bike try adjusting the idle and air adjustment screws. Idle is on the side and air is centered under near the float bowl. Consult the owners manual for the # of turn out from an easy seat. If that doesn't work remove the carb and all jets and screws and clean. also make sure that the decompression cable is in good working order!

2001 ttr125 wont idle without choke on full


If this bike has a carb, turn off the gas flow and remove the float bowl slowly. It will be full of gasoline. Look inside, to see if one of the carb jets has fallen into the bowl. Also check the bowl for dirt and the carb jets for obstructions while you're at it. Check the floats,to be sure they move and that they're not full of gas- like they have a hole.
Be sure to check all your filters too...fuel and air. Check your idle screw adjustment.
Get a service manual from the dealer or from Clymer if you're gonna keep the bike. The Library should have service manuals in the 646 section also.

Dirt bike turn over but wont stay running


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 ). Fill the tank and use only premium gas.

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.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
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.

Engine stalls


I assume your bike has been in storage for awhile...Your engine is running on choke ONLY, that's why when you cover the air inlet it's the same as what the choke does.....your jets in the carb are clogged and will facilitate a removal and cleaning of the carbs my friend.....find a trusted mechanic and you'll be rolling in no time...Good Luck to you......Tim

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.
