Kawa. 250 Super Sherpa seems to have gunked up carb.

The bike seems to have a gunked up carb, but if I slightly press the back break I have full power. Without any indication of a problem. What does his mean?

Ltz 250 wont idle needs full choke to run.cleaned carb all jets new diaphrams. cleaned air filter and all hoses. backfires and hesitates half and full throttle.

hi,sounds to me like the air fuel ratio is all up the ***,locate the air/fuel screw on the carb(normally on the side)screw the screw right in untill it stops,then back the screw out 1.5 turns,this should get the bike to run without the choke,once you have the bike running simply turn the screw in or out untill the bike settles into a nice steady idle,should be good to go,hope this helps...cheers

Yes it has a main fuse, look for the starter solenoid, follow your positive battery wire from the Battery, it will hook to this solenoid or relay, this is where the main fuse is, it should have a red cover.

Hey guys, i have a rmz 250 2005, i have heard this specific model came out the Kawa factory, is this true?? and if so, are the valve clearance settings the same??as the rmz still battles to start, should i...

Call a Honda dealer with the frame number on the bike. They should be able to tell you where the bike was manufactured. The valve settings should be the same no matter where the bike was made. There is a proper way to start the engine. Four controls are on your bike to assist in starting. Below are generic instructions.
  • The choke, used when the engine is cold. Pull the red knob for choke.
  • The " Hot Start " Lever, used when the engine is hot. Pull the lever to lean the fuel mix when the engine has been running.
  • The de-compression lever, always used.
  • The throttle, used to prime the cylinder, (power valve).
Don't kick, instead, push the kick lever downward. You will feel the back pressure as the piston is going upward on the compression stroke to the point the pressure is great enough that the kick lever "locks up". You are very close to TDC. NOW, pull in the de-compression lever. Push the kick lever a little bit more to get the piston past TDC. Now release the de-compression lever. Give the throttle a 1/4 turn then let it snap closed. A diaphragm, (Power valve), in the carb gives a shot of gas when this is done. DO NOT do this multiple times because you will flood the engine. Leave the throttle closed when kicking. A flooded engine will often backfire. Now give a strong kick through the full sweep of the kick start lever. Quickly get your foot off the kick lever at the end of the kick to avoid any chance of "kickback" from the kick lever. This happens in the case of a misfire, aka > backfire. It can be very painful, and can even break a leg. I am serious about that. Repeat the process (but without the throttle priming), for six kicks. After six kicks go ahead and twist the throttle again for a second priming. A good battery, a clean spark plug, a clean carb and clean air filter will also aid in starting. Note that not all carbs have a power valve. When a power valve is not present you should crack the throttle open only 1/8 inch from closed on each kick.

- sounds like it could be old fuel?
- Have you checked your air intake to ensure that the filter is clean?
-Could also be the float is sticking, have you cleaned it in awhile?

Your carb may be adjusted a little lean. Try adjusting the needle, keeping track of the changes you make, and blipping the throttle full to check the result.
