Not running when choke is turned off = carburetor idle jet / idle circuit dirty or plugged. Or adjust idle screw. Air screw should be between 1.5 and 2 turns out from seated.

Air intake problem or carburater problem?


Check there are no air leaks around where the air intake rubbers are at your carburetor. It sounds like your bike is running too lean or weak which means your air/fuel mixture is running on too much air and not enough fuel. This would explain it running smoothly when you put the choke on as the choke "chokes" the majority of the air from the carburetor and allows more fuel to flow through the carburetor creating a richer mixture. There will be a mixture screw somewhere on the carburetor which will allow you to either richen (more fuel and less air) or weaken (more air and less fuel) by turning the screw either in or out. Only adjust this by a small amount (about a quarter turn at most) at a time and try the bike to see how it rides each time. After adjusting the screw each time let the engine idle for about 30 seconds or so to let it settle to the new mixture setting before riding. There will be another screw on the carburetor which is your "idle" or "tick over"speed adjustment screw which adjusts how high your engine revs while the engine is "ticking over". Turn it in to increase idling speed and out to lower the idling speed. This will probably need adjusting as you change the fuel/air mixture. I hope this helps you and good luck :o)

Hi, I bought a brand new Keeway Outlook 125 jusy 5 weeks ago. Since I bought i had problems when starting it so they put in a new carburator that had a new automatic choke on it. I still have problems...


Is it normal that a new bike dies on you as you drive it? No way my friend. The carburetor should have a thermal-choke and it probably needs some adjustment.

Engine runs with choke on,starts to miss fire at 4000rpm when coming off choke and dies with no choke at all,stutters and miss fires with throttle open but will not tick over at all


Sounds like this bike has been standing for a good while & the carbs need cleaning & resetting (or there is water in fuel in carbs)

Actuaaly lemans 11 but problemis: bike starts first turn runs sweet and will tick over fine. Will tick over 5 or 6 times on either cylinder. Ride the bike for a few kilometers and it starts to feel a bit...


Has the bike been standing along time? if so its probably the pilot fuel tunnel in the carb blocked. replace the pilot jets and main jets and soak the the carbs in a good carb cleaner.

Hi my bike wasnt sparking so i changed the stator and now bike runs but it dies or revs up on its own no matter what i do i tryed changing the e/choke for a new one but if i put that in it it wont start...


Have you tried ajusting the mix. screw on the side of the carb there should be one screw for idle (tick over), and one for mix. (the amount of air and fuel the engine needs), but make sure that the screw hasn't come out, if it is still in there screw it in but not to tight just until it stops then unscrew it 3 turns and try it, if it still runs fast unscrew it 0.25 of a turn. if it starts on tick over and its wont come down on the idle screw you need to turn it 0.25 of a turn until it slows down. if it doesn't start take the carb off and take the bowl of the bottom and clean any dirt out, there should be a tube in the centre with either a brass or plastic main jet make sure the hole is clear. When you put it back together make sure every thing is clean.

Suzuki GSF400 Bandit problems with tick over.


as you have replaced carbs you will need to retune for fuel intake also check its getting enough air ie.. air filter has been changed or is clogged
