SOURCE: engine idles fine, stalls soon as its given gas

Hi there!

Open up the carb and clean the jets with pressurized air. I also suspect water on the carburetor reservoir, before opening the carb, drain it first then run. Also, make sure the plugs are clean. Pull on the choke when twisting the accelerator, if it accelerates well, then warm the beast at normal temperature first before twisting the throttle hard again.

hope this helps-

My rm 80 will start and run but when just ideling it will stall, is it something to do with the carb?

Those little carbs on these tiny thumpers clog easily. You'll probably have to pull the carb, soak it in carb cleaner, blow it out with compressed air (be sure to wear chem-proof gloves and a face shield or at least eye protection--carb cleaner's nasty and when you blow it with compressed air, it goes everywhere). Reassemble, and it should run fine. We had a TTR125 and we had to clean the carb this way every year before riding season.

remove the carbs and clean main jets slow running jets NB there is a small pin hole in fuel bowl under carbs use cleaner blow that hole that what operates the choke , so activate the choke and spray through till free from blockage and assemble .that,s it.

I just purchased an 86 suzuki gs550l.Will not stay idleing after the choke is open.Even after it is warmed up. I thoroughly cleaned the carbs,checked for air leaks around intakes,cleaned and tested the...

I did a Suzuki 550 carburetor over haul 10 years ago and had 3 of the 4 intake manifolds crack or separate. I would start by closely inspecting the manifolds. Have you tried draining a carburetor bowl to see if it is full of gas? If the vacuum line to the fuel petcock is not hooked up correctly you could just have fuel starvation. You can hold a spark plug to a cylinder head and turn the motor over to see if you have spark. Correct amount of fuel, correct amount of air, and spark is what you need.
I just gave that answer to some one else. The fact is I had to remove and clean my carbs 4 times . Each time I did it, I got one more carb to idle. The last carb to work for me was the vacuum nipple carb. By the time I was done I had to replace all four manifolds they had all separated or cracked. To get my carburetors working I turned them upside down and shot through them with carburetor cleaner in the morning before work and in the evening after work. The reason it wont idle is the carburetor passageways are still plugged in the slow circuit. Carburetor cleaner , air pressure, and in my case time to get the blockage out of the bodies. When I was done it ran great.

2003 suzuki dr200se will not idle runs great if you keep it above idle. Removed carb, took it apart sprayed jets with carb cleaner. Reassembled and now will not fire. No gas??? Checked everything I can...

If the machine wont idle but the jets are clear, it is possible that you overlooked the carburetor body. If the passageways in the carburetor body are blocked , the machine still will not idle until you blow the body clear. Either there is still dirt in the carburetor, or the intake manifold is cracked or separated in a way that is causing too much air to get into the cylinder. perhaps a closer inspection is in order.

Will not idle

Your carbs are dirty and need to be cleaned. A tank of bad gas or old gas can gel up the jets. You buy gas, drive home, and when you get there the bike stops idling. Light gelling can be fixed by draining the carbs (screw on bottom of bowl), pulling the fuel line off the tank, and squirting some motorcycle carburetor cleaner down the fuel line. Plug the fuel line back in turn on the gas and start up the bike. If that doesn't work, using the same procedure buy some Chevron Techron fuels system cleaner, pour directly into the carbs and let sit over night (also drain tank and heavily treat one gallon of gas and put in tank) Fire up bike and let run ,idle, slow drive for 5 to ten minutes. This will usually get cycle idling without disassembling carbs. If it still wont idle you will have to take off the carbs, disassemble and clean blowing through the jets and jet passageways.

Truck wont shut off when i turn key off and is idling high aslo

You seem to be describing a VERY lean gas mixture.
The spark plugs get VERY hot - so they do not need the power from the key to keep running... they fire gas until the fuel pump gas dries up (or the carb float bowl) - AKA dieseling.

Lean mixtures idle high - and can burn valves.
So, it is carb or FI? IF carb - something is reducing the flow of gas through the jets. Fuel pressure, dirt, clogged fuel filter.

Best/cheapest 1st shot at fixing this would be to spray carb cleaner in the carb with the engine running.
Second, add fuel line cleaner/gas additive to the gas tank.
If you see no improvement after driving 20 to 30 miles, then it is time to take it in to a shop and have the timing checked (advanced timing will lean out the combustion chamber mixture). Then fuel pressure test and finally, filter replacement.

Almost certainly one of the above will improve/cure the problem.

Motor wont idle

Sounds like dirt in the idle jet.I would get a carb rebuild kit and a can of carb cleaner and blast out every hole inside the carb.(Use safety glasses)Also make sure the float level is set perfectly to factory specs.Then if you have compressed air blow the carb out with that. Look inside the little idle jet and main jet holes and be sure nothing is blocking them. Install a good inline fuel filter before you start the bike.
Maybe even drain the tank to be sure most dirt is gone from tank.

Check valve clearance, as vlaves wear the gap closes, most riders don't bother to adjust them till they have a problem like this.... By the way the valve may be part of the issue for backfiring while deccerating but Pipes cause this.
