SOURCE: Fuel pump seems to run,

I'm an old school biker and know absolutely nothing about fuel injection but, if the fuel pump is making that much noise, I would change it out immediately. Fuel pumps are supposed to run so quiet as to be barely audible. This noise would lead me to think that it's has a bearing going bad and it's subject to complete failure at some point in time. When it does that, the bike dies wherever you're at. If I had any doubts, I'd run it by the local dealer and let them listen to it even if you do the work yourself in changing it out.

Good Luck
Steve

After running my johnson 4hp 2s for a couple of hours in the bay it starting giving a strange noise and then cut out.i managed to get it started again but coudnt get above half speed.


Hey Pete.. this sounds serious.... will it rev up while in neutral? If it revs freely and high.. the power head should be ok.. if it will NOT rev up freely and high.. STOP - you are causing more damage..
Check the compression with a good gauge..it should be 125psi minimum.. with no more than 10 psi difference between any two cylinders.. DO this WITH the THROTTLE WIDE OPEN...
Can you turn the propeller by hand while it is in neutral?..Of not.. this is the problem.

Hello James,

If the engine revs up with no increase in speed, your clutch is slipping. Probably the reason the car was sold!

yes.when your engine revs upto to many RPMs it will cut off the cruise control to protect the engine. It is not recommended to use cruise control on steep grades

Engine dies upon acceleration after starting and idling


turn the high speed and low speed mixture screws right in[gently]then out 2.5 turns.start it up,screw the idle screw up till it will idle,then adjust low speed mixture screw in or out so you get the highest idle.keep lowering the idle so as you adjust the screw,it wont get it any higher in revs.so by now it should idle.next,open the throttle wide,and adjust the high speed screw until you get maximum revs..then,turn screw 1/4 turn out.that makes it slightly richer,cooling the plug with droplets of petrol.you dont want it lean.if it wont rev fully,check the fuel filter.they get dirty quite often

if your vehicle slows from 70 downto 60 with no change in revs ,then the transmission is slipping .. imust say i dont believe that the speed drops back without the revs dropping down too, i am not calling you a liar ,i`m saying you are not making accurate observations , and without those we are just guessing .

How fast can you ride the m50 w/o over reving the


Motorcycles and cars are designed so you can't over rev the engines in high gear. Air resistance will keep your speed low enough so the engine can't over rev. However, in a lower gear, you CAN over rev. If you don't have a tachometer on the bike, read your owners manual for suggested top speed in each gear. Or do a Google search for your bike and and "speed" and "gear".
