Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking.
3. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
7. Intake air leak.
8. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system, carburetor and/or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
11. Damaged carburetor.
12. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
13. Faulty MAP, CKP, O2, and/or CMP sensors.

SOURCE: The motor idles fine on my 1978 Suzuki gs750 but

It could be a clogged jet on your carburetor, it could also be varnishing in the float bowl possibly making the float stick.
Try cleaning out the carb with carb cleaner and blowing the jets with air, not too much air pressure.

My kymco yup 50 does not idle. The lights on the dash flicker, and it dies. I can rev up the guess, but as soon as I let go, the bike dies. What's going on?


Give the bike a service, plugs, filters and the battery voltage when the machine is revving at about 1000 revs - the voltage should be about 13 volts (give or take a bit) But I believe you have a blocked air filter or the wrong plug.

Won't start, engine wont rev above 2000rpm


Have the alternator tested. You are providing a low charge to the battery when you jump it and when taking it above 2K RPM requires more amperage resulting in the engine dying and the rough idle
