Ok, There in itself is a problem? Sounds like the carb is feeding too much fuel,  try this first !! kick the bike over and let it idle go for a spin and take a plug remover with you , when the bike stops , take the plug out and inspect its condition , bare in mind that the plug will be hot so leave the gloves on !, if the plug is wet , your needle and seat will be worn and will need a rebuild, if its dry , don't mix your fuel anymore and use the tank, you can still use the same oil so don't worry, now empty out the tank and put straight fuel in , there could be a chance that the oil hole is blocked since you don't use it so might be a good idea to inspect the hoses first before doing anything ok?
Good luck

Bike ticks over on choke but won't run if a touch

Hi, Gerard and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.
11. Faulty fuel pump.

I have a kawasaki250gpxr.when i put choke on it starts up but when its warm and i take choke of it will high rev tjhen die on tick over ,but the bike rides fine

Sounds like running lean fuel condition running with choke on high rev when choke off and cutting out all points to lean condition
Get it serviced and tuned if you not confident to adjust fuel mix your self also you could try some fuel cleaner additive to your fuel tank that may clear it if is just dirty pilot circuit you might get lucky
But I would suggest get it serviced and tuned some where you trust ASAP you wont hurt anything it will just let you down when you need it AS THEY DO!!

Ok, i recently purchased a DTR 125 R 2000 model with running problems The bike will start with the choke on, then die with the choke off, the fuel/air mixture screw was mashed up so i purchased another...

Sounds like a vacuum leak is leaning out the mixture....check the intake between carb and engine for leaks...another source may be tjhe crankcase seals are leaking.

Yamaha 535 stalling out and losing power after running for a bit

Sounds like a fueling problem either water in the carbs or the fuel flow from the tap is insufficient. If there is a vacuum pipe it may have been dislodged or holed.

No problem just done top end rebuild

Just ride it normally. Avoid super high revs when the bike is not in gear and using the power.

Please rate this solution. Thanks bookerm!
