Yeah , I would lean towards the float and the needle and seat valve could be sticking as well. It would be a good idea to pick up a carb kit seeing that you have it apart anyway .

Sounds like fuel frothing or float sticking. Try dismantling float chamber and check gasket is not pinching float, it moves freely and float level is right. Check manifold has correct mounts and heat insulators, also, sounds daft, but bodies or dirt in fuel tank, filters and line do happen!

I'm having trouble starting the car. When it idols the RPM's pulsates up-and-down and then it stalls. Once under way the car seems to run fine but without any warning it will die as I start to


check air filter, might be plugged, [dirty so engine is starving for air.] check fuel lines & filters, dirt blockage need replaceing, check for fuel leaks in lines etc, uses fuel & then sucks air causing it to stop, listen to see if fuel pump is running properly & not stuttering could be short in it's wiring

My Yumbo Dakar 200cc bike dies after riding in 5th gear reving medium-highish for a couple of minutes, it usually just dies after i hit the clutch (coasting), but on long runs @ around 50-60mph in 5th gear...


G'day,
I have a couple of ideas what may help.
First I would think it was starving for fuel.Or maybe an unusual ignition system fault- So how do we find out?
Well-you could try checking the bike for spark immediately after the bike stops.
Remove the spark plug-Re-fit to the cap-place plug resting on metal where you can see it(DO NOT HOLD PLUG-HIGH VOLTAGE)-kick over & check for spark.If theres no spark-try a new plug but if the problem persists then the bike has a faulty ignition(coil,cap,plug,stator.ignition/kill switch,wireing)
I think it is more likely starving for fuel.
A faulty fuel tank filler cap vent or carby vent tube pinched or blocked.
To check the filler cap-ride the bike & when the problem just starts-quickly crack open the fuel tank filler cap to let air in/out. If bike runs ok then the cap is blocked.
To check the carby vents -just look at them & make sure none are blocked or pinched.They usually come from each side of the carby & one from the bottom(usually clear or semi-clear hoses).
I hope that this helps you with your problem.

Riding in temperatures more than 30 degrees C the bike cuts out after about 5kms, engine will fire then stall straight away. wait 15 mins and it starts again and runs fine for another 5 or so kms, any...


Hello,
Sounds like the fuel pump is getting too hot and then it's causing vapour lock, therefor starving the engine. After the bike shuts off the fuel pump cools down it's allowing the fuel to flow once again. On my 2000 V11 Sport I solved this by shielding the fuel pump with an insulated foil wrap from a car parts store. Now the fuel pump stays cooler and I never had vapour lock again. Of course if your fuel pump is located in the gas tank then my suggestion will not help. Hope this helps.

Missing once high in the revs


when you cleaned the carb, did you remove the jets? Sounds to me like the high speed jet is plugged

Starving for fuel - may be a blocked fuel filter
