Question about 2004 Yumbo Dakar 200
This is a carb float being stuck open. Turn off the gas and drain the carb. Next, turn the gas back on and sharply tap the float bowl with the plastic handle of a screwdriver as the fuel bowl refills. The goal here is to vibrate the float to free it up. If doing this process a couple of times doesn’t free the float I would remove the carb then
remove the float bowl. Check the float, the float itself could be bad > filled with gasoline instead of air. Clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. 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.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
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 the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!
