Question about 1974 Honda CB 200
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. 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.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Dirty air filter.
10. Intake air leak.
11. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system.
12. Carburetor contaminated, sticky float, plugged jets.
13. Carburetor vacuum diaphragm torn, cracked, not seated or installed improperly.
14. Multiple carburetors out of sync.
15. Fuel filter clogged.
16. Old or contaminated fuel.
17. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carb vent line closed off.
18. Gas cap diaphragm valve faulty.

You may need a carb kit. Sputtering is usually one of two things. 1) bad seals in the carb, install a kit.
2) water in the fuel.
Clean the pitcock water trap, check the air cleaner, drain the carb
The generator stuff sounds pretty weird and off the wall.

SOURCE: no fuel gettin to the spark plug
There should not be fuel on the spark plug anyway, if the plugs are firing the fuel would burn off them.
Regardless, if you suspect the fuel line is blocked simply remove the fuel line either from the petcock or carburator and blow in it to see if there is any blockage.
1) is there fuel in the tank?
2) is the fuel filter plugged?
3)is the petcock in the ON or RES position?
There should be a screen on top of the petcock that could get plugged up with debris from inside your gas tank. Drain the fuel from the tank and remove the petcock to clean the screen.
Hope this helps, pls vote for me.

Either take the carbs off and clean them or add some fuel additive to clean the system. Sounds like you have a clogged jet.
