Question about 1995 Honda XR 600 R

1 Answer

Dies at idle

Warms up and bike does not idle well, will run fine for a while then
it will cough and die.
Has new plug, air filter, cleaned carb and tried new rev box.
Still has problem, have raised idle to compensate.
Any suggestions, i am thinking stator.

  1. Carb jets may still be dirty or improperly sized.
  2. The Cam and/or Cam journals are worn down and allowing some play in the timing.(Very common on the XR's)
Sounds more like carb or timing issues to me

The stator could be going,but it doesn't sound like this is your issue.


Please rate this a fixya

    The thanks for trying rating? I'm not trying.



    THE STATOR DOESN"T CONTROL THE IDLE.(IF it's broke,the bike don'y run)



    THE ONLY THINGS THAT WILL CAUSE THOSE SYMPTOMS ARE

    CARB ISSUES OR TIMING ISSUES,(Other than top end damage)



    But you can continue part swapping by Replacing the stator,

    Then when the problem still happens,check the items above.



    Oh,and it could be a valve sticking every once in a while as well (but that would be the top end)

Idles with 1/2 choke. If open choke, or throttle - engine dies without any RPM spike. Carb was cleaned, jet is clean. When idles, there is gas in the primer bulb.


Hi, Andrew and the usual suspects are:

1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.

2. Fuel filter clogged.

3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.

4. Float needle and seat sticking.

5. Float level too low.

6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.

7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.

8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.

9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.

10. Slow fuel jet clogged.

750 virago 1983. Dying after giving it any throttle


If the bike has been sitting awhile it more than likely needs a carb clean. But don't do a carb clean by putting any kind of cleaner in the gas. It will just plug the jets that much more.

Hi my suzuki gz 125 wont idle correctly and when i rev the engine it just dies down and cuts out i cant even achieve a stable idle speed


I had this problem today with my bike and after much ado I discovered there was oil in the air filter box... check your oil level it could be too full. Mines was and the excess oil was blown into the air filter box and as a result contaminated the air filter. Spent today cleaning the filter box, carb and draining and changing oil, could not get a new air filter today so ran it without onebike runs like new!! New air filter will be here Monday!

Ive got a 06 harley 1200 sportster when it warms up it starts to cough an sputter through the carb dosent do it all the time but on ocassion it runs fine just takes spells that it does it rebuilt the


Hi David, popping, coughing, spitting, or backfiring through the carburator or induction module can be caused by air getting sucked in combustion chamber do bad intake seals leaking. Leaking exhaust gaskets can also be suspect. Remove air cleaner and backing plate, while engine is idling spray WD-40 or Brake Kleen around intake manifold to head area, if RPM's increase you have an intake leak and seals need to be replaced, also spark plugs will be burning whiter than normal. Good luck

Time for carb cleaning , blow the jets with compressed air,check the float level.
Check the spark plug and replace if neccessary.
Check the air filter too, and if you don't have an 'inline' filter for your fuel line,install one.
Basically yr bike's engine needs a tune up...check the valve clearance too!
Hope this helps!
