Sounds like the float in the carb might be sticking stopping any more fuel getting through to the engine

MC Dies upon ANY throttle application. HELP!

Odds are that if it sat for a year with fuel in it, the carb may be gummed up. Opening the throttle will cause an immediate engine stop if it is not getting fuel.

I'd recommend a "clean out the carb" project, including using air to blow out allof the small orifices.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting ***** set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture ***** set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.

My yamaha 80cc motorcycle runs fast then shuts down

Hi, if it starts again after a litle wile ,then you must have a petrol level inside the carburator tha is to low. in the fuel chamber you find a buoy that controls the amount of petrol coming into the carburator. If this level is to low you just run out of fuel after a fast ride.
Also you must check that your gas tank "breathes" so air can go in as fuel comes out, otherwise it will stop fuel from running due to a vacuum process.
Good luck

The chole is only ment to be used to prime the engine on cold start up, the engine is supposed to be run with the choke in the normally open position.

2006 HD Sportster 883 won't run on idle

drian the gas in your in tank fill with nice fresh go juice add one can berrymans B 12 chemtool any good auto store will have it. This is a luck shot!! If you are still having trouble ( In my line i see this alot ) you will need to clean the carb, the best thing to do is have your local shop do this, they will or should have a vat to dunk it in to clean all the gummed gas out of the carb body
