Take plug out to check for fire, if you have fire turn screws all the way in and back off a turn and a half. Fire it up and adjust

SOURCE: 2002 suzuki LS 650 running lean at higher speeds, (off idle)

this prob happens allways in carburated engines that the car or motorcycle is running lean or rich . because the air - fuel mixture ratio is not right . so you should open the carburator and remove the air filter you will find two screws in the lower front section of your caeburator. you can adjust them by a screw driver until your car is smooth

SOURCE: starts and stays running with choke on. stalls

Pay special attention to the parts in red. DO NOT mix parts from the front carb with parts from the back carb. When removing adjuster screws and jets, count the number of turns to remove them, write it down, and replace with the same number of turns.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual. Most all of the manuals are in English but some are not. There is no way to be sure without doing the download. You can always delete it if in a foreign language.

wind the screw in till it just stops [not hard]
then wind out about 1 & 3/4 turns that should be a close air fuel mix then adjust idle & mix till you get it right
Cheers Rob

The idle speed is not your problem, you have something stuck in the needle valve in the carbureator, or the float has gone bad. Either one will require carb. removal and cleaning.

Having trouble keeping the engine running. It will only run with the choke on, even when engine is hot. Air leak problem?

running needing the choke on indicates a blocked main jet in the carby or insufficient fuel to the carby
I suggest that you overhaul the carby , using compressed air and new parts on reassembly

Sounds like your choke cable needs adjustment. Follow the choke cable to where it mounts on the carb.

Move the choke lever at the same time watching where it mounts to the carb. there is usually a clamp holding the cable in place, you may need to loosen the clamp and slide the cable back to make the choke fully close

20 hp tecumseh, won't run unless choke all the way out and gas lever all the way up, also backfires. spark plugs good and seems to be getting plenty of fuel. Any ideas?

If the choke has to be on its not getting enough fuel into the engine. The carby and fuel lines etc have to be cleaned out. Regards Phil

When you get engine idling turn the air mixture screw in or out to the highest revs without use of throttle. Reset idle to optimum speed with throttle stop or idle screw.

22 horse kawasaki riding lawn mower will not run at full throttle unless the choke is engaged

That is not a good situation. Too rich of a fuel adjustment can wash the bores out on that engine and prematurely wear it out! You will likely need to have the carburetor linkage and plate adjusted so that full throttle operates without engaging the choke. (If this is a single lever that you slide from slow, idle speed to fast, then on to choke)

My yamaha xt600e starts to to choke/stall like if iit lacks gasoline every time i pass 5k rpm in 2nd,3rd,4th or 5th gear. What could it be?

You may very likely have an issue with your carbies. The jets may be gumming up with sediment over time or secondary carby needle is worn or sticking. A carby cleaning execise may be a cure or a service at your bike dealer if your not mechanically minded. The carbies are a little more complicated than the normal single carby and have more jets and slides, as well as a delayed secondary carby linkage.

Try the site below for a free download of your bikes manual which will have some troubleshooting tips and some service for the carby's.

96' Corolla 1.6 Engine running erratic when cold.

Take the cover off when its cold before starting - give a press 1/2 way on the pedal and release. Check that the choke plate flap is now covering the carby inlet. If it is, then the auto choke is ok. If its manual choke - check that it works on and off.

If the choke does not close when cold take it to a car by repair shop for servicing.

If the choke is working ok then open the choke flap and move the accelerator linkage at the carby, in the same direction as it moves when you press the pedal - you should see/hear a jet of fuel being sprayed into the carby down beside the acccelerator flap.
If no fuel there you may have a prob with your 'pump' on the carby or maybe the fuel pump from the tank is faulty or blocked.

There may be a problem with dirt stuck in your jets -if you can't strip it your self, take the carby off and in for service.

As you need 3 things for the motor to work - fuel - spark from the coil and airflow. check these out one at a time

ps. we have Kangaroos here in Aus
