Hi Stephen,
Its simple , just remove the air filter clean it and check the spark plug and reset it to its right specs the gap.
Locate the air-mixture screw on the carb and warmup thebike's engine.
Turn the air-mixture screw in tothe last , but very slowly as to not damage it as its very sharp at the end of it, at this point increase the idling a little thn turn the air-mixture screw outwards 1 and a half turns and you will notice the difference in the engine , it may rev a little higher and be stable , here you will have to reduce the idling speed and again try to readjust the air-mixture screw outwards a little or inwards alittle depends how the engine responds.
Hope this will help!

Does the 2007 Honda ANF 125 Innova have a carburettor or fuel injection?


2007 is the crossover year. The model ANF 125-7 is the first injected bike in Europe and was built for the 2007 model year but some 125-6 bikes may have been registered in 2007 and they will still be carb bikes.
If the bike has slatted grills over the air vents on either side above the front of the engine, it is an ANF 125-7 or later Injection model. If it just has triangular shaped air duct holes, it is an ANF 125-6 or earlier carb model.

Kdx 125 standard carb settings


DEPENDING ON WHICH SCREW WAS TURNED MAKES A DIFFERENCE..BUT RULE OF THUMB IS ALL THE WAY IN NOT TO TIGHT JUST FINGER TIGHT..YOU SEE THOSE NEEDLES HAVE A VERY FINE POINT ON THE END AND IF THEY GET TIGHTENED TO HARD THE POINT GET FLATTENED OUT AND DESTROYED..SO IN FINGER TIGHT AND OUT 1 COMPLETE ROTATION AND A 1/4 TO 3/4 OUT.BOTH SET SCREWS THIS SHOULD GET THE ENGINE RUNNING GOOD ENOUGH TO TUNE..PS..IF YOUR ENGINE DOSE NT AT LEAST ACT LIKE IT WANTS TO START ONLY TRY THREE OR FOUR TIMES IF NOT RUNNING ADJUST AGAIN BUT LITTLE INCREMENTS AT A TIME..NO THROTTLE NO CHOKE..DONT WANT TO FLOOD IT BEFORE IT STARTS..WHEN FLOODED IT WILL NOT START AT ALL..THE BEST WAY TO TUNE A CARB IS WITH A FLOW METER..

The carburetor has gas flowing from the tube vents when i turn the fuel on. i heard it has something to do with dirt or debris in the needle valve, but how do i fix this?


it may be due to a few things like:
1. The needle valve or its seat is worn. You have to change it as a set. This involves opening up the carb.
2. There may be some debris or varnish between the mating surface of the needle valve and seat which also requires opening up the carb and cleaning with carb cleaner.
3. You carb float level setting may be incorrect. You have to know the float height from the manual and then have it adjusted. There is usually a small metal under the float which is used for float height adjustment.
4. Your carb float may be stuck and this usually happens when the bike is on its side stand and not used for a long time.

Have drz125 cleaned carb an tank,starts on choke,idles for 2-3 seconds and dies,also need to know settings,thanks


The carb on a DRZ 125 or KLX 125 comes pre-set from the factory with a very lean tuning. At first it may run well but once you get some time on it with a little build up and some dirt the lean setting gets even worse. To correct this you need to thoroughly clean the carb , specifically the fuel screw. Remove the carb from the intake and airbox rubbers and take off the slide cap. Drain the carb from all fuel. The fuel screw is in a recessed tube located on the bottom of the carb on the front side towards the cylinder. It may ahve a brass plug covering the screw. This is done at the factory to prevent tampering for emissions purposes. The plug can be removed by taking a very small drill bit 1/8" or so and very carefully drilling a hole in it. Put a small sheet metal screw in the hole and pull with pliers and it should come out. Make a note of the position of the screw and slowly turn it clockwise in to see what the setting is. Do not apply heavy pressure when you feel it getting tight stop. It is a soft brass screw with a fine point an is easy to damage. Typically the factory settings range from 1 1/2 to 2 turns out. This is way too lean for the bike to idle and run well or even start without the choke. back the screw out and remove the spring and O ring. Using carb cleaner with the hose attached insert it into the hole you just removed the crew from and spray it out. You should have a good stream of spray into the center bore of the carb. Re-insert the O ring and then the spring and fuel screw. turn it in until you feel it making contact and then note the position and back it out 3 1/2 turns. Put the carb back on and it should be able to start and run without the choke. Some bikes will still need a bit more tuning. The older carbs had a slide needle that had 3 to 5 positions on the needle that could be adjusted with the movable clip. Since this does not have that option you could go to a Yamaha dealer and buy the needle from a TTR 125 and install it as it is the same carb. This will cost you around $15.00. Or you could go to a hardware store and buy some 3/0 stainless washers and remove the needle and put 2 or 3 under it to shim the needle up just like the clip on an adjustable needle. You may spend $1.00 with this option. The bike should run better than new.

if the airbox and intake boots are the same size then it should work, but your bike will run rich, you will need to re jet it.

Pilot screw setting.


Stock it would be around 2 turns out.

These bikes shipped with only one jet needle (unlike other Yamaha's) the bike's factory jetting is 45 pilot, NBKF needle on the 2nd clip from the top, and 138 main. This bike tends to run a little rich off the bottom, so I'd recommend running a 42 pilot instead. When it's really hot out (over 90) you can run the 135 main jet.

Screwwing with carbs is fact of life with these bikes - you will have to do some tweaking no matter what. smile.gif

Hi,
You have not mentioned working on the carbs, so I am presuming that this is a 'new' problem.
Your bike has plastic floats in the carb. With age the plastic perishes a little, and the floats fill with fuel and stink. This prevents the fuel being shut off when the float chamber is full..
Open the carb an check weather this is the case.
If not, inspect the needle and seat for wear.
Lastly set the float level.

Good luck
