I have a zoom 49cc x2 pocket bike. I have just bought a new carb and put on it. And my bike still won't crank. If I put gas in the cylinder it will bur n the gas and then cut off. What could be the...

Try filling the float with gas and trying it again. When you install a new carb especially on the smaller cc motors there is not enough of a draw to actually fill the float. You can try an old trick as well. Crank the motor over a few times while plugging the exhaust tip with your finger. After about 6 or 7 cranks pull your finger off while still cranking it. It just might do the trick.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Doesnt wanna start

After gas sits in the gas tank & carbeurator(s) for a long period of time. it turns into varnish, stinks like hell. you will need to remove your carb(s), and take them completely apart. clean out all the jets, clean out the choke also. put it all back together, with some fresh gasoline, and you'll be good to go bro......

08, 1125r...Just bought it. On my first ride i noticed gas drips from tube on the back of bike opposite side from exhaust. I assume this is an overflow tube but it drips gas for 15 minutes after every ride...

It is a known issue - you can take it into Harley but last guy I knew with that issue - they had the bike for a month and gave it back to him no changes said they couldn't replicate the issue. The gastank on the bike is getting hot causing the gas to evaporate and create pressure inside the tank - hence the gas dripping out of the pressure vent. Some guys have put some heat insulation in between the side of the tank/frame and where the headers get close. Other guys just wrapped their headers with thermo wrap - seems to help tons.

I am trying to figure out how to put air in a presta valve. The tire is just a little flat but we couldn't seem to fill it at the gas station. I think the bike may have been used when we bought it.

You can not fill a presta valve at a gas station because the valve is too small for the hose. The hose at a gas station is made to fit a schrader valve.

here just check out this video:

hope this helps.

My 2000 r1 wont start, light an everything come on,press the button an the starter is all i hear. from timt to time the bike trys to start, but it just doesnt. bought the bike from the previous owner who...

If the bike had been sitting for a while and it was running but wouldn't hold idle, you likely need to remove the carburetors and thoroughly clean them. To confirm it's the carburetors you can use a spray bottle to spray a little gas into the carb throats and try cranking. If the engine fires up, your problem is definitely in the carbs; more than likely gummed up. Remember not to use steel objects if you're cleaning the jets because you will enlarge them as a result.

I have a 1982 yamaha 650 seca turbo. I just bought it and was gone for two week on vacation. pon returning, my motocycle leaked gas from the exhaust pipes. So I cleaned my carb. Boiled it in lemon...

When the carburetors over flow enough to fill the exhaust, It is possible that the gas also went into the cylinder and flowed past the rings and into the crankcase. With the engine overly full of gas and oil you could easily pop a seal or blow out a gasket. Check your oil level. If it is too full , change the oil, it will not lubricate properly with all the gas in it. Check that your shaft seal has not popped out. Check the air filter, the breather may have blown oil and gas all over it when you started the bike. Empty your pollution tubes behind the motor( they will drain the air box). Get in the habit of turning your fuel petcock off when not riding. This gas flooding happens randomly in certain models but can happen to any one.

My bike cranks but wont turn over. when it does start it idols rough and shuts off. could this be my carb need to be clean. the bike sat for a year before i bought it

I have the same bike, put fresh gas in it and make sure its high octane. Check your plugs make sure they arn't fouled, make sure the intake boots on the carb are tight. Check air filter.

I bet its the gas, thats what happened to mine.

Can you put fuel cleaner in your gas tank? my bike runs fine then it stalls and sometimes it won't start. I just bought the bike and the owner had it setting for 2 years in his garage can it be bad gas?

Hello shawn...Yes indeed gasoline can degrade over time. That can lead to a number of problems, ranging from hard starting, to rough running, to no starting at all...If your bike was stored for 2 years the gasoline in it has degraded beyond use. Even if the gas was treated with stabiliser before it was will still degrade in 10-12 months, if not sooner. I'm suprised your bike will even start. I suggest you drain ALL the gas out of the tank, Rinse and refill with fresh gas, drain your carbs as well...the stale gas has most likely clogged the pilot jets, draining the carb bowls will help.
Go to your parts store and buy a can of "Seafoam" pour 1/2 of it in with your fresh gas..use the other 1/2 on your next tank of gas.
Replace fuel filter after 1st tank, the seafoam will dislodge any debris that was in the fuel tank. It will also clean the combustion chambers and carb jets. Check your carb boots for any cracks or detoration that would cause a vacuum leak. Replace your spark plugs. If your bike is still running rough after this, then the carbs will need to be removed and cleaned and/or rejetted.
Good luck..i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.
