Hi, If it starts on ether, then the plug is probably not too bad, spray your premix in instead and if fires OK then your carb is clogged, you can start with the float valve, open the drain screw on the float bowl and make sure it is filling, if it is, then its probably the jets or vanes are lacquered from sitting and they simply must be cleaned. Air pressure and a carb solvent works good when cleaning but other than that no magic. Good Luck, this should Fixya!

Gas is runnung out the over flow tube and bike wont start


Either something is stuck in the float bowl valve or similar. You will need to shut off of the gas, drop the float bowl, check that the float move and closes the valve. If everything looks good and the valve actually closes, then there is a chance the float is fuel logged, or soaked with fuel. It won't float then. Replace the float, clean and/or replace the valve, clean the seat and check for scoring. New gasket on the float bowl, tighten it up, and you should be set.

your problem is a clogged carb. clean float valve, main jet and idle circuit with a can of spray carb cleaner.

disconnect fuel hose at carb and see if gas flows.

reconnect hose and open float bowl drain valve. If no gas tap on side of float bowl with plastic end of screwdirver to free up float.

still no gas? remove float bowl and try to shoot carb cleaner into the fitting for the gas line from tank.

if gas flows now then put it all back together and it should run

if not then remove carb and clean carb passages, main jet, idle circuit.

Havent cranked my big dog in bout a year . Put new gas in it but wont crank. Is the nut under the shorty carb where i would drain the old gas out


Yes, the brass plug in the bottom of the float bowl will drain the float bowl. Hopefully that will get you started but it may not. It depends on what the inside of the carb looks like. You may wind up taking the carb off and cleaning it out completely.

Good Luck

Gas flows out of the carburater drain hose


Sounds like your carburetor floats are stuck to the bottom of the bowls. You can try to tap the carb bowl with a screwdriver and try to get them to pop loose, otherwise you will have to remove the float bowl (usually about 4 screws on the bottom of the carb). All you should have to do is pull it down about 1/4" or so until the floats pop loose and then put the bowl back on. This is pretty common on bikes that have sat for a few months, especially if you are good about draining the gas from the carbs when you're storring it.

Yamaha blaster runs but wont rev


ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb.
Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

remove gas line from carb and turn on gas if no gas tank and line need cleaning. if there is gas need to remove carb and clean jets. before you remove it seal off the back of carb with hand and have someone to kick it over a few times if its a small clogg this just might remove it GOOD LUCK
