Question about 2004 Honda CRF 230 F
Can I get another bike to jump start
Posted by Anonymous on
I am not sure why others are recommending a carburetor rebuild - that has nothing to do with "how to jump start a CRF230F..."
If riding with others (as you should ride with at least one other person), you can disconnect and remove the battery from their bike, connect it to yours, and use your electric start. This is, of course, if the other rider has a battery in their bike and you have a 10MM wrench to remove the side covers and and battery cables.
If alone, or other riders have bikes without batteries (2-stroke machines), do the following:
* Put the bike in 3rd gear (1st and 2nd gear are typically too low of a gear ratio for jump starting to successfully work. The rear wheel will simply lock up and slide.)
* With the clutch lever pulled in, start pushing the bike as fast as you can (it is easier to do this on part of the trail / road with a slight to moderate decline)
* With the bike rolling as fast as you can get it going, hop on the bike and then let the clutch lever out. With the rear drive wheel connected to the transmission/crankshaft/connecting rod and piston via the chain, the piston will compress the fuel/air mixture, the spark plug will ignite, and then the engine should fire up and be running.

You sound like you have a blocked idle jet in the carb. Honda trail bikes love new oil, clean air cleaners and clean fuel. After a while a build up of tannins and crusty residue will invade the carby bowl and usually migrate through the carb via the jets and the emulsion tube where the jet needle runs. The easiest way to fix your problem is to remove the carb and go through it. Clean all jets and check float height and generally get it back to scratch. You will have to re- adjust your idle and mixture settings after you have fited it back to the bike. If you are not Mechanicaly savi then I would suggest you take the bike in to your local honda dealer and get them to go through the carb for you.. It's not a big problem and is easlily fixed.
Hope this helps...

The carburator seems to be overflowing.
You will have to adjust the float pin and probabely there may be some dirt and thus it doesn't seal off the flow of the gas once the float chamber is full.

It will be a metric size. The standard sizes are 13,14,17 and 19mm. The manuals will not say what size. Or just use a crescent wrench.
