Howdy I have a Suzuki 93 katana 1100 whene I start it with choke on it idles good but whene I take the choke off and give it gas it makes a bogging sound soon giving it more gas the bogging goes away


A good chance you have a partially plugged slow speed circuit in the carbs. When the choke is on you are restricting air and getting more gas, when you give it more gas and get beyond the slow speed into the high speed it clears up. My guess is the bike has been run and let sit with Ethanol fuel in it. Probably will take a carb cleaning to straighten it out. Also on that vintage get Ethanol free fuel if at all possible and run a fuel stabilizer additive such as Startron or Stabil as well.

When applying the throttle my scooter surges. When I give it gas quickly it slowly declines when I give it gas slowly it gains speed slowly but never gets past 23mph


Hi Lynn, for hard starting the usual suspects are:
1. Enrichner system plugged, not properly functioning or improperly operated.
2. Fuel overflow.
3. Restricted fuel supply.
4. Plugged slow jet or passages.
5. Inlet system air leak.
For poor acceleration the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables misaligned or misrouted (may also affect idle speed).
2. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
3. Inlet system air leak.
4. Vacuum piston malfunction.
5. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
6. Plugged bowl vent.
7. Fuel level in bowl too low.
8. Restricted fuel supply passages.
9. Plugged jets or passages.
10. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
12. Enrichner valve not seated or leaking.
Good luck and have a nice day.

How do I fix keeway matrix/150 when throttle is given it bogs down and won't allow me to accelerate up to speed


That old gas had sediment in it and you need to remove the tank, fuel pump and filters and change them.

My 3 year old Yard Machine 139cc started (choke out), but then began running excessively fast after pushing the choke back in. A few weeks later, it still started (choke out) but now ran very fast even...


Check the carburetor see if all the bolts are tight.check the cylinder head gasket take off plug wire make sure it is away from plug so it wont start. Pull start rope can you hear air being pulled into the engine? if so the head gasket has ruptured or head bolts came lose. Ensure all parts are tight. Ensure fuel lines are not clogged. Check fuel level.

Hyosun Scooter Carb Adjustments


Very good thought process on the adjustments. The throttle screw sets the idle speed and the air screw sets the fuel mix at idle speed. The stock setting is 1.5 turns outward. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward.

From this point you adjust the idle speed then adjust the air screw for fastest idle speed at that throttle screw setting. If the idle speed becomes faster than desired after adjustment, just reset the throttle screw and then reset the air screw.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!
