Pull the slide and move the jet needle clip down 1 or 2 notches.

No guarantees but try this. Pull the slide from the throat of the carb. Now move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. This will richen the low end mix. Two notches may be needed but do one notch at the start.

SOURCE: Fuel pump location

If the carbs are leaking fuel then the float pins inside are not sealing ad the weight of the fuel in the tank is pushing out. your bike should not have a pump. it should be gravity fed. if your bike sat for a long time and you did not drain the carbs before putting it in storage the fuel goes stale and creates a varnish like residue inside the carbs. unfortunately the only way to clean it is to disassemble and clean them. not something a casual rider should attempt. it is something that should be left to a mechanic. removing them from the bike could save you some money, but not much. taking the bike in to a bike shop is your best bet if you have never done carburator work before. the mech can clean, reassemble and sync. usuall cost around 300-350 parts and labor at a good shop. I used to run a motorcycle service department. if you can do it yourself great. just dont get in over your head. it is harder for someone to pick up where you left off working from a bag full of peices the to be the one who took it apart and remember where everything goes. good luck

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

If the carb has been cleaned, fresh gas and the engine idles good, possibilities are:

  • fuel starvation - when throttled up. Determine if there is sufficient fuel in the bowl of the carb. Loosen the drain screw and note quantity and quality of fuel;
  • too much air - is the original air filter and enclosure installed? If yes, check for air leaks. The lower the bog down RPM, the bigger the leak;
  • too little fuel - if the needle has notches, adjust the e-clip lower; if none, insert small thin washers after the lock (0.5mm).
The bogging down would also happen if aftermarket open breather air cleaner is used. Install back the original airbox/filter.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Check you main jets ccccccthey could need a good wiring through with needle wire cleaners or try running it without any air cleaner unit .If it runs well then could be an air filter problem.

Sounds like fuel starvation. Check fuel flow from tank to carbs. Could be blocked fuel filter. If ok, check/clean out carbs.

Bogs down at full thouldel tryed to adjust carberator


Hi
This is either a clogged muffler or carb. Take the off and see if it will rev. If not you need to clean carb and install a carb repair kit. Do not run long with muffler off.
