Sounds like the carb float tang is not set properly causing insufficient fuel to be in the bowl. i'd have a look at it and adjust as necessary.

I have a hawk 250cc Chinese dirt bike with 80mph on the speedometer but I only can get it to 50mph what could I do to get it to 80mph

Speedometers always go a lot higher than the maximum speed of the bike. In the case of your Hawk 250 the quoted top speed is 74.5 mph. In my experience of riding trail bikes and competitive enduro, you will only reach it under ideal conditions. That is usually a following wind, downhill, with a light rider, riding one handed with your head on the tank. NOTE - This isn't a very safe way to ride! The main problem with dirt bikes is the riding position which is sitting high up like a flag in the wind which causes extreme wind resistance which will easily know 20 mph off your top speed.

your bike also needs to be correctly set up, and I doubt that Chinese engineering workmanship is that good. at 80 mph things can go bad very quickly.

90 HP 4 stroke runs smoth as silk at 1800 move higher and it stalls have replaced several parts rebuilt carbs no help

when an engine stalls or looses power at high rpms , it is because there is a higher need for fuel to supply that requirement
fuel shortage can be from
blocked filters
low float levels in the carby/s
vent problem in the fuel tank/s
perished hoses letting in small quantities of air
the hoses failing intrenally and blocking off the fuel flow
pump problems from bad diaphragm or the rubber in the hose again blocking the main jets in the carby/s
another area to be checked is the ignition system being able to provide the spark at a higher rpms
this problem can be from failing condenser, ignition module or coil/s

2006 Honda CRF 250 R stalls when you pull the clutch lever in

Hi, Anonymous the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

1997 Honda CRV, over 219,000 miles. Stalls out periodically even though it starts OK. Can be pulling out, running engine at low rpms and it stalls. May be related to electrical as it is more likely to...

Considering that it occurs more often with the a/c on, it is most likely a problem with either your battery, where it is too weak to sustain the engine output, or with your alternator. I advise checking your battery, and if that isn't the problem, checking your alternator. If neither of those seem to be the problem, its also possible that it is your torque converter, or a skewed setting in your ecu, both of which would most likely need to be checked by a professional.

Bike cuts out at higher RPMs

It sounds like you did a good job - but, did you adjust the float? You will use more gas now and at high RPM you may be running ouy of gas - Check floats specs and adjust

Hello, I have a 1990 route 66 250cc

You can get to 55 with and old Honda 90cc. Your 250cc should do 80 with no problem. Your gearing is backwards. The larger the rear sprocket, the slower you go. You have tried to compensate a loss of engine power with a gear reduction demanding more from the what little power the engine is putting out. Put the 45T sprocket back on and do some work on the cylinder head. Ethanol is famous for corrosion and your valves are proof of it. All your power and gas mileage are going out the exhaust pipe. Pull the cylinder head and re-seat the valves. This should get back the power that is missing. You didn't mention any smoking so the piston rings must still be good. The stock main jet is #110. The higher the number , the richer the mix. Go to a #112 or #115 if you need to but only after the valve job. Right now the main jet is not the problem and changing it will only mean even worse mpg.

I answered this question once but the answer has disappeared into cyberspace. FixYa has a problem with that occasionally. A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

Bogging and stalling at high RPM's

The main jet need cleaning.(you should clean them all though)

Main Jet: Main jet comes into play at three-quarters open to full throttle conditions. CRITICAL to high-speed engine operation. Not only does it meter the gas into the engine, it can aid in cooling the engine as well.
