Question about 1999 kawasaki ZR-7

Open Question

My 2001 Honda 750 Magna with only 4500 miles does not idle even when choked. Sometimes helps to tug on the choke for some reason. It sits for long periods of time, which makes the problem worse. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: wont run /idle

i'd start with removing the carbs and giving them a thorough cleaning as when bikes sit for so long, the carbs begin to get gummy/varnished from the old gas.

check for blocked holes in the pilot jet & main jet and look for "hard & dried up" gas in passages. be careful of the float bowl gasket as to not tear it or you will need a replacement.

You need to take off your carburetor , disassemble it, and clean the jets (specifically the slow jet) and the passageways in the carburetor body that feed the gas to the carburetor throat. Carefully set your air screw setting back to stock setting. and reassemble. Inspect the intake manifold and air box tubes for cracks and separations. That should get you idling again.

My 1996 VF 750 C Magna starts fine with the choke open. After a minute or so as I reduce the choke and try to open the throttle, the engine just stalls out. Cannot seem to get the throttle to control


I think you are mixed up. The choke is usually closed to start a cold engine and opened once the motor warms up. The choke is closed to restrict the air flow and make the mixture richer in fuel. You can't open a choke that's already open. It's stalling because it's starved of fuel. Either a blockage or the fuel pump is not supplying enough gas.

750 magna idles too high, idle adjust is backed all the way out,still too high


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted, pinched or need lubrication.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
4. Air fuel mixture adjusted too lean start with 2 full turns.
5. Intake system air leak.
6. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
7. Broken throttle return spring.
8. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
9. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, sensors or wiring/connector.
10. Multiple carburetors not in sync.

Even though you put stabilizer in the fuel, it sounds like the jets in the carburetors gummed up. Additives wont do much good at this point. You need to remove, disassemble and clean the carburetor passages and jets.

1997 honda magna, has not run for couple of years, was able to have it idle, with full choke, push in choke after warmed up, and it stalls. Then it will restart with full choke. left it alone for a week,...


Sounds as if the carbs are fouled. Best bet is to get rid of the old gas, remove, tear down and clean up. With time old gas will cause plugging in jets and such. If you are able to drain all the old gas from the tank you may be able to get away by using new gas and a fuel treatment for cleaning the carbs. You'd have to get the engine to run for a bit to get the fuel cleaner in to the carbs, if the jest are plugged you'll have to tear them down.

I hope this may have helped,
Tom
