Lexmoto xtrs 125 starts then dies :(

Right so firstly i changed the air filter which caused the bike to start dying out after a few miles. I then read up on this and people said clean the carb, so did all that with carb cleaner topped up the fuel etc, and now with many kicks it eventually ticks over for about 2/3 second?

I would think about investing in a carb re-build kit.

unscrew the four screws on the bottom of the carb (be ready some gas will drain out) then you will see a goldish looking screw. unscrew it that is your jet

Take the carburetor apart again, remove the main and idle jets and idle mix screw, plus the float and needle valve. The main jet holds an 'emulsion tube' in--look inside where the slide valve moves, you should see a short brass tube projecting out of the bottom. Carefully push down on that tube with a plastic rod or wooden dowel, it should drop out the hole where the main jet was. Chances are that the tube is dirty and needs to be cleaned--look carefully at the series of small holes drilled into the sides of the tube. These small holes deliver air which is mixed into the fuel passed through the main jet. That air comes from a small hole just inside the intake side of the carburetor. The long needle that sticks out of the slide bottom controls low to mid-range speed fuel-mixture. Check that the 'C' clip on the top end of the needle is in the center groove and that the retainer spring is pressed down the 'C' clip. Now soak the whole carburetor with spray cleaner, then blow out all passages with compressed air. Don't soak the rubber-tipped needle valve from under the float. On reassembly, set the idle mix screw 1-1/2 to 2 turns CCW from CW stop. Adjust for best idle after you get it running and warmed up. I hope this long winded explanation helps!

You need to remove the carbs and dismantle them completly and adjust them to spec. Also change the fuel filter.

Hi, Brian and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.
11. Faulty fuel pump.

My bike dies while riding


Sounds like it may be sucking air from one place or another. You may have a small hole in a fuel hose, problem with fuel filter, or just a weak connector where the tube makes a connection. Something a little more major would be a gasket under the carburetor needing replacement. Check the tubes first. A fault with gasoline that contains ethanol is that they bring on deterioration of fuel lines. This is the easiest fix.

2003 suburban starts and dies while driving, no codes read amd no engine lights on


check the fule presure on the injector rail is a what looks like a car tyre valve connect a gauge up to this or buy one ,i use a old AC filler pipe for one of them gas can things with the end changed to a tyre valve pump end and it works ok better than paying a lot of money for one ,should read 55lbs and if the pressure drops then suspect the gauze filter on the bottom of the pump first before you replace it as its a complete unit and around 600euros as its only available from the dealer

07 ttr 125 cranks but will not start right up when it does it will not take gas it dies and you have to turn key off and back on before it will start back it will idle for a few seconds and die again over...


I have two ttr 125's and my son has another, all 05's but i ran into this with a friends 02 as well. All ttr 125's are cold blooded bikes to say the least. the cold starting procedure that works is to first lean the bike over to the left till it dribbles a little gas on the floor. hit the electric start for a few seconds only, wait 20 to 30 seconds and do it again. holding the starter button down and cranking will do nothing but flood the bike out. short busts only, dont give it any gas ever, this will also do nothing. first it will start for a brief moment then die, hit the button for about 3 to 4 revelutions and wait, the next time it will start again, most likely only for a few seconds again, repeat this and each time it will run a little longer till it keeps running on it own. the best way to get your ttr to start easier is to cut the top of the airbox off, this will give the bike more power (youll see why when you look at the tiny opening) and allow you to spray starting fluid under the back of the seat right into the airbox. it makes starting a cold bike 5 times faster. usually only 2 repeats of the starting procedure.

Engine cuts out


It sounds like something is preventing the bike from getting fuel. Check fuel filter, fuel tank vent, air filter too. If you have vacuum building up in the tank, letting the bike sit for a few minutes slowly releases that vacuum allowing the pump to pull fuel easily again for a bit. Next time the bike quits open your fuel tank. If you hear a whoosh of air being sucked in look for a plugged vent line. A plugged air filter can have a similar effect but the only way to check that is change the air filter or look at the one you have. It would have to be really, really dirty or plugged with some debris to cause this problem.
