Tim,
I would look at three main things first. Compression, spark and fuel. Once in awhile us mechanics can get a "hunch" of what's wrong but overlook some common problems. I would invest in a compression tester and a spark tester. Both are fairly cheap and available at any parts store. Simply unscrew spark plug and srew in compression tester and turn starter over. Observe the reading, do this for all cylinders. Then put plugs back in and install spark tester. Turn starter over and observe spark. If you can get your bike started again, check compresiion and spark when your unit fails. This should put you in the right direction. Hope this helps!

Hi, Timothy_towd "ABSOLUTELY" you need to go through all 4 carbs set the proper float height and then have them synced for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Some bikes with after-market fairings have sloppy workmanship when it comes to extending the wiring out to the fairing. You may be suffering from this condition. Open the fairing enough to check the wiring--when two wires are just twisted together and taped, they will not stay together. Try tugging at any joints you find to see if they pull apart easily. Crimped **** splices are best and don't need to be taped. Check the back of the gauge for loose connections as well. Hope this helps!

it seems odd that your coils would play up, usally the they just stop working. You talk of it bogging down? , i would suggest that to be a carby problem, especialy if the bike has sat around for a while. first try to just drain the carbys, as you can do this without removing them, should be a drain screw or plug on the bottom of the carby. Make sure your air filter is clean too!

Can I reach the carbs just only remove the tank or must I also remove the body-cover. I shall tune the carburetors on my Suzuki GSX600F-99. Thankful of answers.


body cover!...believe me... a ride around without mine on... gives me that rat look i like and it makes it a lot easier to maintain...especially if you're out on long rides and need to access or work on the bike..your preference though! Whats wrong with the bike? Seafoam might clear it up. get it from autzone $10, pour 1/3 can into two gallons gas and get on it,and you wouldnt have to do anything but ride it for 10 miles or so till problem goes away...maybe. My moto is dont mess with the carbs unless you absolutely have too! they might just be vanished all up.

Bike starts idles low , but when put in gear tu ride of shot off


ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the bottom or lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.

If the bike doesn't start and run properly check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. Broken or out of adjustment, it would make the bike die as soon as you put it in gear or release the clutch. Check for a broken wire at the switch or coupler. Get a service manual and check out the electrical section. Some bikes have a diode integrated into the turn signal relay. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. If that doesn’t work, check out the relay.

I'm not too familiar with Triumphs but assuming your bike has carbs and not fuel injection, then it is time to clean the fuel system. Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ). Install an in-line fuel filter.

For each carb > Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains.

You may want to go to a richer main jet. If the jet is (for example) a 178 then change to a 180 or 182. This should fix the top end problem. Do this only if cleaning the carbs doesn't work.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

New model ut08580 backpack will not start


check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.
