Question about GAS Motorcycles
I have drained gas tank, disassembled, carburetor cleaned all the jets pilot screw blew out everything s.e. valve looks good i guess air cut off valve was not taken off the first time hope i didn't hurt it now runs terrible wont idle choke does nothing at all surges up down when holding throttle backfires what did i do wrong i rebuild jeep carburetors all the time?
Did you foul the plugs , this is something that happens all the time when you have a hand choke on something , when it gets cold out you are going to need more choke, the best thing to do when it is cold is to warm it up do not just take off because you always leave the choke on and foul the plugs, warm it up leave it alone , do not fix something that is not broke

hi,sounds to me like the air fuel ratio is all up the ***,locate the air/fuel screw on the carb(normally on the side)screw the screw right in untill it stops,then back the screw out 1.5 turns,this should get the bike to run without the choke,once you have the bike running simply turn the screw in or out untill the bike settles into a nice steady idle,should be good to go,hope this helps...cheers

The slow jets and adjoining passageways are still dirty. As painful as it may be , take the carbs off and clean the slow circuit again or it will never idle. Double check the fuel pump is working properly and the fuel filter is not plugged. One time it took me four cleanings to get all four carbs working on a Suzuki that sat for five years. Also make sure none of the carburetor boots have developed rips from age.

I would check the compression of the piston, the rings could be stuck and not have good compression. It should show 120 psi or more. Also can pull off the exhaust and look in the exhaust port to see the rings, piston, and cylinder walls. If the motor has a power valve make sure that is not gummed up or stuck. Mark C
