SOURCE: bike bogs for second then revs when throttling

Pull the slide out of the carb then remove the jet needle and move the clip one notch lower on the needle.

Quitting is a no-no. Move the needle clip down one notch and also remove and clean the carb if it has been dieing..

SOURCE: will not run

Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. 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 may 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. Remove the two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Be sure the bolts are tight. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Set the idle speed with the idle screw, (sticks out from side of carb perpendicular to the carb throat).

If you are smoking that badly, loose the gas in the tank and start fresh with a 32/1 gas/oil mix. That equals 4 ounces of TWO STROKE OIL to one gallon of gas. Do NOT use motor oil in the gas. It may continue to smoke for awhile, until it rids it'self of built up oil in the crankcase.

On the clutch, be sure the oil level in the gearbox is correct. This is where 10w40 motor oil goes. Check the clutch cable linkages. One at the clutch lever and possibly one at the motor. You should have about 1/4" play in the clutch handle before the lever starts actually pulling the clutch.

If I have some water in my gas tank and ran it for at least 1/2 hour, do I need to pull and dry carburetor or when I empty tank I may be alright. Its still bogging when I give it full throttle.

It\'s fine. If the bike runs with a little water in it won\'t kill it. It will however run like garbage. You can top off the gas tank with fresh gas and it will eventually clear itself out.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Bike turns on and runs, but won't go over a certain speed without bogging. I cleaned the tank, filter, and put new fuel. Still bogs. Will run 45-50 mph at full throttle.

Try taking the carburetor float bowl off and check to see if anything got in there. I posted you a problem I had with my bike. I turned the throttle and the engine just died. As soon as I let off the throttle the engine would start running again. Found a powdery rust like substance in the nut in the bottom of the bowl. Kept gas from going up the main jet when I cracked open the throttle. My bike is an old Harley but carburetors pretty much work the same way however they may look. Give it a try, you said you tried everything else. You may even be able to take the float bowl off without removing the carburetor from the bike. Let us know if you had any luck.

My ktm has plenty of spark but is flooding itself out everytime it is fired. Sometimes it will run for a bit then bog out. Other times it will start and just run for a few seconds then bog out. The plug is...

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your issue.
Usually when it comes to excessive fueling or gas overflow we should start by looking at the float or the needle valve turning of the fuel actuated by the tab on the float turnoff. Chances are the bike was stored over the winter and the gas shellacked up and the float or needle valve is sticking (or possibly hanging in the open position in this case) .
Remove or disassemble the carburetor and clean the the jets, the float valve, (confirm the mini spring is properly connected and attached). Check the float to make sure it's operative and nothing is bent or dented so it's hanging. Give everything a thorough cleaning and air blow with with pressure can.
If the jetting has been changed out go back to stock jetting. Check to make sure the Thumbscrew for the air jet hasn't vibrated off. Should be out about 1 1/2 turns from the home position.
Let us know if we can provide further help, and thanks again for using FixYa.
Best regards,

Motor seems to idle and run okay however it bogs down when you pull throttle quickly .it is a 1967 triumph 650 single carburetor .

Hi,,remove and clean the carb. before doing this you might want to check the air screw on the side of the carb, with the bike running turn the screw half a turn in and give the bike a rev,if it bogs more,turn the screw half a turn out and see if throttle response improves.

If i gives it full throttle it bogs

Also check you plug and the air filter make sure they are both clean and the plug gets nice and red.
