Make sure the diaphram seating by blowing in the air intake that allows air in and out and the slide should rise and fall ! have you cleaned the jets etc ? sparking ?

if it has a carby ( you didn't bother to mention carby or EFI), have the carby overhauled as from your description, the accelerator and power sections of the carby are not working, Blocked jets or low float levels
if it is EFI have the fault codes read to check for MAF/VAF sensors and/ or heated oxygen sensor problems
your description indicates that the engine is not getting excess fuel to provide engine rpm acceleration be it either carby or electronic system

Did you change the carby? I had a similar problem many years ago on a different bike and it turned out to be a torn rubber diaphram at the top of the CV carby. Ususally accessed by the removal of a couple of screws on the top of the carby and you should see the diaphram. This will have a slide with a needle that goes down into the main jet. If the diaphram is torn or there is an air leak around the rubber o-ring in the carby lid that you have just removed then this will give the sympoms you describe. (take care when removing the diaphram not tear it and keep everything very clean).

My 4 wheeler is leaking gas when the fuel is on out of the hose from the bottom of the carb.

>>> Please leave feedback so I can continue helping You & Others

the main jet float level needs adjusting, and the needle valve may need replacing. Carefully unscrew the base fron the carby (after turning fuel tap off), then check that the float moves freely up and down, while holding it up turn the fuel back on, and see if the needle valve is stopping the fuel. Slowly lower it to the level position, fuel should come out then. Give the carby a good clean, DON'T use wire, JUST SOLVENT AND AIR.

What would be the problem if when you give the bike gas it cuts out? The bike starts fine just when u give it gas it dose not accelereate

This is a crack, pinhole or tear in the rubber carb diaphram or loose screws on the diaphram cap. The tear, pinhole or loose cap is killing the vacuum needed in the top of the carb to raise the carb slide to increase speed. Please rate my answer.

Tb320bv blower, I can set the choke and start it but it will not run. As soon as the choke pops off during acceleration the blower dies.

This would indicate that you need a new diaphram in the carby not very expensive any mower shop will do for about $30

High pressure air does not clean a carby!! There are a few small holes in every carby that in some cases need to picked at or cleaned with carby cleaner, deposited junk left behind by fuel that was left in the carby is most likely your problem. Clean your carby alittle better this time maybe you will get different results, left us know how you make out, Good luck!
