SOURCE: dt 125lc 1987 back misfires and does not pick up on acceleration

I am going to have you do a series of things to clear up the problem. First come the basics >

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 should 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 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. Don't be cheap, use a lot of cleaner. 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 and dry the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Set the idle speed with the idle screw. This process should get you back on the road unless other problems exist.
Let's say that the bike is no better >

  • How good is your battery?
  • Carb, head, intake manifold and carb mounted tight?
  • Does the carb intake manifold have reeds? What condition are they in?
  • Remove the flywheel cover. Take hold of the flywheel and, without turning the wheel, lift the flywheel up and down then left and right. Any movement or was the flywheel rock solid? If movement then the crank bearings need replaced along with the crank seals.
  • Speaking of crank seals, how old are your seals? The bike ain't gonna run with bad seals.
  • I don't recall for sure, does the bike have CDI? If so, have the dealer test the CDI and the coil.
  • If no CDI, when was the last time the points and condenser were replaced or points filed and set? Get the coil checked.
  • How old are the piston and rings? You could have problems there. What shape is the cylinder wall in? Scared up, low spots (you will not see the low spots without running a cylinder hone through the bore).

There isn't much more to do. You just rebuilt the engine.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: Honda 750 stalls if throttle is opened unless choke is on.

Hmm , sounds like a vacuum leak, check all the hoses, and the rubber intake manifolds and clamps

SOURCE: Motorbike stalls when openeing throttle or turning choke off.

You've most likely got plugged up carburetor jets. The openings in the jets are so small that it can be very difficult to tell when they're plugged up - and this makes them clogg very easily, too.
The only other possible cause of the trouble you describe would be an air leak between the carburetor and the engine, a leak at the head gasket or cylinder base gasket, or a leaking crankshaft seal.

It sounds like your bike has been sitting in storage for an extended period of time (a year or more) - and the carburetors are plugged up. If this is the case, they will need to be completely disassembled and cleaned out.
If it hasn't been sitting (and the carbs aren't plugged up) then check that all of the normal tune-up items have been performed, especially valve adjustment, oil and filters, spark plugs, etc. If this fails to produce positive results, perform a compression check on the engine. Each cylinder must be able to produce at least 140 psi of compression in order to run and idle properly.

Briggs Stratton 5hp I/C starts ok, runs, but will not rev

My money is on a partial blockage of the main jet or the passageway to it. You're having to force it to run through the idle jet by fully choking the incoming air. There's not enough gas coming in with the choke open to allow it to run.

I'm thiniking total carb disassembly, carb cleaner and an air compressor combined with a ton of patience will take care of the issue.

If your vehicle is fitted with a choke try releasing it, it controls the amount of fuel going to the carb, let it off the give it the throttle mid ride

Kawasaki Bayou 220, cleaned carb. dont completely understand the floats but all jets are clear. reinstalled fuel lines, throttle, and choke cables. Starts great, also idles great. BUT when i test drive it:...

To start with was it fine before you cleaned it? Is any gas over flowing from the carb at any time? Does it start well when cold or hot? Will it take throttle slowly but not quickly? Did you adjust your air screw? These answers will help me determine what is going on. Did you pull the float off? Did you check the choke and make sure reassembly is correct?

Kawasaki barako 175B ES repair manual

Here is a procedure I have foud that is very effective. Pull open the choke. Then, open the throttle and SLOWLY operate the kick start lever several times so as NOT to start the engine. Then close the throttle and slowly turn throttle grip until it just starts to open the throttle. Once it starts to engage the throttle, turn about 2 degrees, no more. Then kick start it. Might have to do two or three times.

My 1996 VF 750 C Magna starts fine with the choke open. After a minute or so as I reduce the choke and try to open the throttle, the engine just stalls out. Cannot seem to get the throttle to control

I think you are mixed up. The choke is usually closed to start a cold engine and opened once the motor warms up. The choke is closed to restrict the air flow and make the mixture richer in fuel. You can't open a choke that's already open. It's stalling because it's starved of fuel. Either a blockage or the fuel pump is not supplying enough gas.

How to start from cold

Full choke, no throttle and if it is properly tuned it will fire up nice.After 1-2 minutes start closing back the choke in and a couple of throttle openings will help to close it all the way in.
