Hi, Anonymous you may have the float level set too low for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue.

Adjust carburetor on 316.791810 weed trimmer

if there is a set screw on the side of the carburetor it may need adjusted. if not it may need to be cleaned or rebuilt as at high speed it requires more fuel. the screen inside is probably dirty or clogged.

How much oil in driveshaft and differential for a R65 BMW Thanks

Usually you drain the oil out of the drain plug and then find out what kind of your oil. It takes an you fill it up until it starts overflowing, but I would ask the BMW dealership to make sure

2000big bear 400 will start and idle great wont trottle up put chok at bnhalf and it will run great help

Sounds like you are not getting enough fuel. One your tank is plugged up or the carburetor is dirty and not enough fuel is filling the bowl. And also float adjustment in the carburator. Just to name a few good luck.

Replaced fuel line ,rebuilt carb replaced spark plug

Is there gas in the tank? Sorry, but sometimes simple things escape us.

Also... is your fuel old? Does it maybe have a lot of water in it? Before you do anything else, try again with a full tank of fresh gasoline. THEN try the rest of this if it still won't stay running.

The problem you describe is VERY indicative of a fuel problem - no fuel getting to the carburetor, or not enough fuel getting into the cylinder from the carburetor. Try pulling the fuel line off the carburetor to see if fuel comes out quickly. If not, there's an obstruction in your tank.

If plenty of fuel comes out quickly, then the problem is in that rebuilt carburetor; sometimes a rebuilt one comes back misadjusted or incorrectly reassembled.

It want crank at all i just rebuilt the carb and still want crank and now it also has gas coming out the muffler

you either have a bad carburetor or you didn't put it together right when you rebuilt it. double check the diaphragm is on top of the gasket on the metering side. if the needle is stuck open the fuel will continue to flow causing it to come out the muffler

I have an R850GS the bike starts but cuts out when you try to move off. Its a W 2000 reg which has done only 13000 miles. I've only had it two weeks I have a feeling it might be the battery as I suspect...

Hi, Anonymous the following applies to carbureted also fuel injected models and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or damaged battery, 9 volts or lower.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
10. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
11. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
12. Fuel tank empty.
13. Gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
14. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.

My homelite 26b is not getting gas into the primer bulb. It's only been used a few

There are a few things to look for with this problem. First, open the fuel cap and look inside the gas tank. If the tank is more than half full, dump some out to assist you in seeing inside the tank. Look at the fuel line and filter. Make sure that hose is long enough to reach the bottom of the tank when tilted on its side. Make sure that there is a filter on the end of the hose also. Then follow the hose to the carburetor and the other hose from the carburetor to the primer. If they are all intact and no cracks, then the primer may be bad or there is a leak in the carburetor. It will have to be rebuilt.
