Check your spark, If isnt hot enough then youve got electrical problems. How does it run when it is running?

SOURCE: rebuilt carbs-starts and idles but wont rev up without choke on

sounds like the main jets are partly pluged, you must remve all brass jets and seats including needle jet and its slide soak in carb cleaner and blow out with compressed air only.. hold up to bright light to verify if all are clean. jim

SOURCE: wont idle unless i havethe throttle barley turned

The idle circuit is still plugged up or it would not be giving you this problem. Remove the carb and dis-assemble it then soak the parts in denatured alcohol for 30 minutes. Then use a spray carb cleaner to finish the job. Spray into all the little holes in the carb body. Especially spray into the air screw and throttle screw holes. Reassemble the carb and LIGHTLY seat the air and throttle screws then turn each of them one and one half turns outward. This is the factory setting. Before putting the slide back into the top of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower on the needle. This will richen the low end fuel mix. Install a new spark plug and clean the air filter. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

SOURCE: Quad will not start electricly, and pull start binds?

hello, i agree with johnnyraptor, i have a 2000 warrior, i t has done the same thing,except my bolts didnt break, my one way starter bearing sound like it was sorta dragging, then it would break free, sometimes it would start,then it would just spin, had to pull flywheele, race and bearing is bolted to backside of flywheel, thats the big hex head screws that you see, when looking at flywheele, when you pull stator cover, sounds like you need oneway bearing, make sure not to put on backwards, have seen it has them for about 50.00 to 75.00 dollars, warriors about 60.00 ,mine came from yamaha, 150.00. wish i had found this other place before i bought mine...

Driving my honda 2001 crv and it just lost power and now wont start

I would check the Ignitor. This is a common problem, they often become heat saturated which causes a failure to deliver spark. Do not pull a plug and ground it unless you have a resistive spark tester. If you do you may end up with a fried ignitor if you don't already have one

Need to know where the hoses from the carborator go on newly aquired honda 200x atv 1985 also the carborator was torn apart when i got it i think its back together right though

The hoses from the carb are a bowl vent hose (top one) and the one out the bottom is a bowl drain. They don't connect to anything, typically they run down in the frame behind the motor. Good luck!

Truck wont start carb out of tune

First of, trims in neutral there should be about 1mm opening of intake on carb. Top end needle should be back to factory setting which is 3 to 4 turns out from fully screwed in. Start engine and keep trying to start while turning top end screw in a touch every 5 to 8 pulls you may need a little throttle to help.

My honda cbr 600 wont start and keeps backfireing

Check your plugs. If all four are sparking then your carbs are out of sync. They will need to be re-balanced.

If you are capabable in doing this job your self, you will need a screwdriver that fits your adjuster screws and a CarbTune Carb balancer.
Remove your tank and airbox.
You should see the flaps inside your carbs. These should open when you move your throttle.
Start on the outside carbs to get them balanced with the 2 centre ones.
To start, unscrew the adjusters all the way out. then screw them in until the 2 outer carbs move at the same time as the inner 2 carbs
Once this is done then adjust the centre balancer to syncronise the 2 left hand carbs to the 2 right hand carbs.
Now if you have done this correctly, all four carbs should open at the exact same time.
If you have a Carbtune balancer, remove the plugs from the top of your inlet manifold and plug in the hoses from the carbtune balancer.
Start the engine and adjust the screws until the weights inside the Carbtune balancer all read the same.
Once done, remove the balancer, replace the plugs into the inlet manifold, refit the airbox and tank and it should run so much better.

If your not 100% confident to unertake this job yourself, take the bike to your local dealer and ask to have the carbs balanced.

Rebuilt top end put everything back spin the motor no spark help

Are ALL the grounding wires connected, power wire to starter. Might try tapping the main relay box located behind dash above left foot while in driver's position. Go online to see what it looks like so you don't beat the heck out of your cruise control or some other device. You have to tap it while someone is trying to start the car to diagnose or loosen the connecting bolt to pull it down within your reach.
