Console will not power off automatically on the gx 2.7 bike

Hi Kim:
Since this is a new bike I would not waste any time trying to find out what is wrong.
I would take it back to the dealer or store where it was purchased and ask for a replacement.

Battery keeps losing its charge

remove the neg cable and place a test light between cable and post and see if light comes on,if so then start removing fuses until it goes out that will narrow down your problem, if the light does not come on have the battery check it could have a faulty cell

My bike wont idel but does everything else fine just when i come to a stop it stalls so i have to keep the revs up

If this is a new bike take it back to the dealer and have them properly set it up.
Sometimes a clogged air filter will cause the fuel/air mixture to become to rich and the bike will stall. Remove the filter and air blast it clean then wash wash in solvent/gasoline then let dry. Apply a very light oil to the filter to keep dirt out, then re-assemble.
Sometimes filters are in-expensive so just replace with new.
You also have a slide stop screw on the carburetor. This can be turned in about 1/8th of a turn to increase the idle speed.
Also: The throttle cable has adjustable ends both at the twist hand throttle and at the bottom where it goes into the carburetor. Vibrations may have loosened the adjustment and you may be able to re-secure the cable adjusters in the correct position for proper idle speed.
Best wishes,

2002 road king classic keeps stalling when i come to a stop and there is some backfire as well . when i first start up the bike it will idle .

If your bike is fuel injected, there is nothing you can do. You must take it to a shop and let them set the idle speed. If it's equipped with a carb, remove the air cleaner cover and look at the square top on the carb. Just to the right of that cover is a screw, the throttle stop screw. Turn this screw clockwise to increase the idle speed. It should idle at about 1000 RPM.

Good Luck

Once I release the accelerator, the bike turn off, so I try to keep a minimum of acceleration so, that do not happen. What can I do? How can I Adjust that?

all thats wrong is the tick over is too slow,, it just needs to be tweeked up a little so the bike will tick over at 850rmp look at the throtol stop there should be a screw to bring up the tick over speed just turn it in a fuw turns and the bike will then keep running with the throtol closed

you have got sticky floats or float velves that are sticking shut/open,,, turn on the fuel and tap the top of the carbs one at a time this may jolt the floats back and shut the needle velves if this dont work the only way to fix it is to strip the cards and clean the cards up if you park the bike up for any time again drain all the float boles first by undoing the small screw under the carb float boles or run the carbs dry by turning off the fule tap and keep the motor running till it stops by its self

Need help with setting up my dell'orto phbd 14 bs carb for my mini crosser jus recently changed head for a 44mm big bore 3 port piston so need to reset my carb and dont know how to ? i,e idle screw and air...

first get the bike running, turn the idle adjustment up enough to keep it running. start with the air/fuel screw, 1 1/4 turn out. adjust the screw which ever way increases the idle 1/4 turn at a time, wait 10 seconds after every 1/4 turn to allow the engine speed to adjust. As the idle goes up you can use the idle screw to keep it in its normal range. at some point, the idle will start to come back down, this is when you want to start going the other way. idealy you want it set in the middle of the range of when it stopped increasing and when it started to decrease. If you are not able to reach this happy medium within the normal adjustment range, you will need to put the proper pilot jet in and start the process again. This should get you up and running, if it is a generic carb you may will have to adjust the jetting to get the bike performing its best after that, but thats another chapter.
