Stalling when starting

The bike starts perfectly but give it 2 mins and the bike is struggling to fire, like the engine ie being starved. this is only when the bike is cold. i have replaced the fuel tap, fuel line and filter, carbs, plugs and had them serviced. when the bike is warm it runs fine

I would check that the rubber seals for the Choke circuit are in good shape and that the choke is actually working properly.

If after the two mins ur putting the choke back in and the bike dies, it could be that your needing to adjust the idle speed.
it might just be set on the lower limit so that when ur bike isnt fully warmed up it struggles.

2005 roadstar silverado starting riding bike cut out, now it wont start, turns over perfect, any ideas?


Hi, you need to first determine if the problem is ignition or fuel related. Spray some starting fluid into the air filter inlet then try to start it. You need to open the throttle 1/4 to 1/2 open. If the engine fires for a few seconds, you have a fuel delivery problem. If the engine does not fire at all, you'll need to verify you have no spark. Then you'll know it's an electrical/ignition problem.

2005 Harley Davidson 1200 Custom Sportster Stalls at Lights and Stop Signs


4700 not a lot of miles. This motorcycle needs to run. It will be rough until you can get the carb cleaned. I would keep doing what you have been doing for a while. After a couple hundred miles if it doesn't improve, you might want to consider having the Harley shop give it a good tune up. Check the plugs ...

Then your carb IS NOT CLEAN or IS NOT ADJUSTED PROPERLY. Flooding is a direct result of your carb having issues.

Have been having issues starting bike. Engine seems to be flooding for no apparent reason. e.g., this has happened multiple times.Started it today ( idling little low round 0.5k revs), let it run for 5...


A flooding problem is usually due to a problem with the foat and the needle/seat in the carburettor. This could be sticking open and allowing the engine to flood. Also, alowing an air cooled engine to run stationary for extended periods builds up considerable localised heat and this could be causing fuel to percolate and flood the engine. Back fire could be coming from a sticking valve - from the heat and a carbon build-up?

But first check the floats and needle and seats in the carb an shut off the fuel tap after shutting down the macnine.

Riding in temperatures more than 30 degrees C the bike cuts out after about 5kms, engine will fire then stall straight away. wait 15 mins and it starts again and runs fine for another 5 or so kms, any...


Hello,
Sounds like the fuel pump is getting too hot and then it's causing vapour lock, therefor starving the engine. After the bike shuts off the fuel pump cools down it's allowing the fuel to flow once again. On my 2000 V11 Sport I solved this by shielding the fuel pump with an insulated foil wrap from a car parts store. Now the fuel pump stays cooler and I never had vapour lock again. Of course if your fuel pump is located in the gas tank then my suggestion will not help. Hope this helps.

95 sportster wont start. Everything was running fine until now.


do a basic test .try starting the bike, then take out a spark plug. is it wet or dry? if its dry, no gas getting into the combustion chamber. if its wet, place the thread of the pluged in spark plug against any engine metal, crank the engine and look for a good blue spark. no spark or an orange spark means ignition problem.

02 crf450r starts up fine.... let choke off then


I have a crf 250 R and i have learned multiple things about these bikes like if you leave it running and not riding it for about ten min. it will over heat. they love race gas 113 octane,and alot more. but your prob sounds strange. i know if you hold the hot start while its runing it pops that could be a problem. or it could be you are not cleaning the bike out i would need to know more about this to give a definate answer but try going over the bike. Look at key parts like the
carb
air cleaner
fuel line
any thing that is nesessary for the bike to run.
