1st-take off fairings & tank,seat, take carbs off. drain fuel, & turn over on bench. take bowls off.disassemble jets & floats in each carb, do not mix components from each carb.soak in carb cleaner until clean, & no obstructions in jets. soak bowls also.squirt through carb. air & fuel circuits w/ spray carb. cleaner.when everything is cleaned, reassemble carbs. check carb. float needles for leaks. if all ok ,install carbs on using remote fuel supply bottle, hook up to carb set.start bike & warm it up,now synchronize carb. set w/ vacuum guage set.reassemble tank,seat, and fairings. note:this really is not a job for the novice w/o competent supervision, a service manual is recommended before beginning.

SOURCE: backfires, idles ok but no

The best way is to have them boiled or ultrasonic cleaned...If you can't do that, soak them in solvent overnight and use some spray carb cleaner and compressed air to clean out all the passages. I have found that a small steel guitar string works best, for the jets.
Good luck, i hope this helps.

Hi, Alvin if your bike has been idle for months or years and does not want to start you will have to deal with a few remedies:
1. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
2. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
3. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
4. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
5. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

Hiya my son has a Baotian BT 125 T-12 Tanco Moped and it isnt starting, we've been told we have to drain and clean the carb but we have no idea where that is, can anyone help please? Thanks.

There will be a fuel line running from the gas tank to the carb. The carb will have a cable connected to the twist grip on the handle bar. On most bikes the carb is found on the top - back side of the cylinder. Also clean the air filter connected to the back of the carb and install a new spark plug.

Starts hard and wont idle, no low end power, has been sitting i'm told, cleaned carb, fresh gas and new plug.

The starting hard and Idling problem sounds like carb needs cleaning. If this bike has moved from a different area it might need different jets in the carb. I might have jumped the gun the gas/oil mix ratio is very important check that first. your spark plug should be a golden brown when mixture and right jets are in. This might resolve the low end power if the oil mix is to rich or you might need piston rings. GOOD LUCK

Carbeurator problem SKYTEAM ST125Y

there is a float in the carb, that pushes up a needle valve to shut the fuel off, There must be something, a little dirt or hair stopping the valve fully closing. The bottom of the carb must be removed and the valve cleaned, It is possible to buy a new needle valve if the problem persists.
You may be able to loosen carb clamps and twist it sideways to get the bottom off, otherwise the carb will need to come off, you should be able to leave the cable and slide installed.

Won't tick over

Depends how mechanically minded you are, basics to start are: strip and clean carbs, put fresh fuel in the tank (remove old fuel first) change spark plugs,oil, oil filter and air filter.

I have a 850 and the carb has varnished gas that was ran through it i has no power and won't harly stay running what can i do. I was also told that gas could have got in my oil would this cause it?

if old gas has sat in the carbs and fuel tank for sometime, they should all be removed and thoroughly cleaned and serviced. this will require dissassembly to an extent. the tank will need cleaning as well to ensure nothing gets back in the carbs after they are reinstalled. the carbs will needs resetting and syncronizing. install a new fuel filter at this time also. ensure a clean air filter and if you smell gas in the oil, change it before starting.

Fuel problem

indian BAJAJ stops while changing the gear?technicial told me for bad it true?That other post is right. Motorcycles are MUCH more sensitive to the quality of gas than cars are. Two pieces of advice: #1: Use only the 92 octance Chevron gas with that 'techron' stuff. Its not the octane thats good - its the carb-cleaning additive. #2: Go to Napa or pep Boys and get a can of Sea Foam carb cleaner. Add some to your gas tank for the next few fill-ups. Chances are this will clean it right up. if not then you may need to get your carbs cleaned which costs a few hundred bucks,,,
