Hi, Anonymous for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem. Good luck and have a nice day.

SOURCE: When warm will not stay running+leaks oil to the air cleaner

This is an XS 650, no? Sounds like you might have some piston ring blow-by (especially if its burning some oil), or possibly bad valve seal's'. The valves could be tight, so make sure the valve clearance is correct first, then compression test, and finally a 'leak-down' test.

If it is blowing by, it probably is fouling plugs and you will need more energy in the spark to fire, but this is a secondary issue, which will be eliminated with the fixing of the other issues. Good luck!

Audi a4 18T tubo model 2007 why does it mis only when it idils

It could be a few things, but my guess is a fouled spark plug. This could also be a sign of a bad ignition coil, clogged air filter or something wrong with the air sensor, or a major issue like a leaky head gasket. Start with the easy stuff like the air filter and the spark plugs. Also, try to borrow or pay someone to read the fault coded with a VAG-COM, at the very least it will tell you which cylinder is misfiring.

I have a 2004 chevy aveo and there was a split in the air intake hose that i was unaware of until the engine started to stall. I sprayed carb\manifold cleaner in the valve and replaced the hose and now it...

email me. Check and make sure all vaccum hoses are not cracked. Basically anything connected to you throttle body, or intake that is made of rubber replace it. there is a small crack. happened to me this week. small air leak makes a difference. also if you can replace the intake with a cold air intake. Runs way better.

I have a 2002 Honda Spirit 750 thats running with a cyl missing and sputtering when twisting the throttle. I removed the seat and gas tank to try and remove the carb boots between air filter to try and...

if the open hose on each boot is on the air side of the carb..air will be pulled through them all the time bypassing the air filter... if the hoses are on the engine side of the carb and open... the engine won't ever run right unless you plug them... i would first take the spark plug cap and spark plug out of the cylinder that is the removed plug into the cap and hold the plug by the cap to a a part of the frame and turn the bike over to see if you have spark at that cylinder. if you do...go ahead and try some starting fluid spray in the hose on the intake boot.
if you still have problems there are other things to check.

Honda Lead 100cc 2006. Poor running no power

Sounds like carburator is gummed up, most people when they clean a carb they blow it out but fail to soak it in carb cleaner and even then I have found if you don't use some type of wire or torch tip cleaners jets and passages are still plugged up... I have personally seen this many time and it come back to carburation.

There is a air line supposed to hook up to the oil filler cap and goes to where? And also to check the timing where do you hook up the timing light and do you have to plug any vaccum hoses, also what is...

There's a rubber hose that goes from the oil fill cap to either the air cleaner or to the air intake hose between the air cleaner and the throttle body. It's for the PCV system. There's also a small filter inside the air cleaner on some models, and another hose and PCV valve that goes from the valve cover to the intake manifold. There should be a emissions system sticker under the hood some where that shows all the lines, and lists the specs for spark plugs and ignition timing. You hook the timing light to the #1 spark plug wire, disconnect and plug the vacuum line to the distributor. Set timing to 10 degrees BTDC.

Carby problems

The gummy stuff is varnish left behind by evaporating gas from the tank. Get some Berrymans Chemtool carb cleaner. Submerse the carb parts in it and add a small air hose, like one from a fish tank, into the bottom of the carb container. The air wil provide vibration and circulation of the cleaner in the container. Let the carb soak for a couple of days. Add cleaner as needed.

The guy i bought this bike from was an idiot the hoses and vacume lines are messed up i need help with any diagrams help the lost.THANKS

Small bore pipe from inlet side of no 2 carb goes to the small bore pipe on the petrol tap (this is the vacume swich pipe)
Large bore reinforced pipe goes from the large pipe on the petrol tap to the (hidden and bugger to get at) connector that points up (on the airbox side) between no's 2 & 3 carbs on the airbox
A large bore pipe goes from the rear facing connector on top of the centre cover on top of the cam cover (located under the frame beneath the petrol tank) to the connectot on the air box (this is the breather pipe)
Ensure that all pipes are hole/split free, secured with clips and that each inlet mainfold rubber (between the carb and cylinder block) has it's vacume plug fitted (located at the bottom of each rubber)
