SOURCE: hard start, trouble idleing

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install new stock spark plugs. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. This process should get you back on the road.

Hi there , ok, sounds like your tank is not breathing properly, Check that the petrol cap seal is sealing properly , check your fuel valve and hoses and make sure they are not touching the motor anywhere, most bike operate better with the tank in not in a vacuum so make sure that the breather holes underneath are not blocked , the reason why this phenomena happens is because when the tank is full , the shear weight of the fuel forces it to come out in abundantly which satisfies its request for fuel when you nail it, once the weight is lowered so is the pressure and the fuel has no air to replace itself because the breathers are not sucking in enough air to allow the fuel to flow .

This sounds lean, from your description. The best way to set it is with an exhaust analyzer... Be sure to look for intake leaks also.

SOURCE: My bike runs rough idleing and at slow speeds. It

Check for intake leaks where the carburetor manufolds connect to the heads, when it is running at idle dpray WD40 around the area if the idle increases there is a intake leak.
reolace the gasket/gaskets,and since the carb will be off clean it or have a mechanic do it.

My honda vtx 1300 will not run with choke all the way in but will run with the choke half way in. what is the problem?


If your bike will only run with the choke half way out it's starving for feul. You have a clogged jet. By choking the bike you cut off the air and allow more feul to run through the carb.

My transmission on my 2001 flhrci suddenly started leaking. don't notice leakage when bike is upright


Clean all oil from the bike exterior. Leave it sitting in an upright position for a period of time. This may require a bike lift or other such device. Then look for leak source. Make sure oil level is not too high. When changing oil it often gets on the cross member and may leak when on the jiffy satnd for a while until it is all gone from this area. Make sure to always use thread sealant and a good o-ring on the drain plug.

When i put my 1987 Yamaha Virago in gear, it dies


Yamaha motorcycles of this vintage often have issues with their kickstand switch. This switch can be disabled by clipping the two wires that go into the switch and wiring them together--the kickstand switch is normally closed (letting current flow) when the stand is up; the switch is open when the kickstand is down.
This is more afield than your electrical concerns, but if the clutch plates have bonded together, the bike will stall when you put the bike into gear. The bike will start and idle fine, but basically, you don't have a working clutch, so the bike will stall out when you dump it into gear while at a standstill. You can test for this by starting the bike and having someone push the bike to get up to a little speed, then trying to shift into 2nd gear. If the bike lurches forward before stalling or keeps running, you have a clutch, not an electrical issue.
Folks sometimes get lucky, and working the clutch plates a few times will free up the sticking plates. I have had this problem with a mid-1970s vintage Honda that I don't ride very often. Eventually, the clutch plates free up and the bike is good to ride again.
Good luck!

The bike will crank up and idle and I can thottle it up fine but as soon as i put it in gear and release the clutch it dies.


is the kickstand still down when you are doing this. Some bikes have a kickstand sensor and wont let it run when down.

Bike was running and someone thought the kickstand was on the opposite side and set the bike down in the dirt it runs fine and I did an oil change however I beleive there is a tilt sensor and was wondering...


There is more than likely a tilt sensor and they reset themselves as soon as the bike is set upright again. No need to do any thing, may run a little funny for a few miles but other than that you should be fine.

Winter storage


If your brake fluid is in need of changing, do so before long-term storage. Similarly, hydraulic clutch fluid should be changed before you store your bike; both systems may suffer failure if moisture gets in. Also make sure your coolant is fresh, as deposits can form from old fluid. For service intervals, consult your owner's manual.
