Question about Honda Motorcycles

1 Answer

When I switched the eco-throttle on my Honda EU1000i, the idle doesn't go down, I replaced the carburetor with a new one (OEM) but the problem is still there. Any suggestions on the problem?

Someone suggested that the eco-throttle motor could be defective, that is why I replaced the carburetor with a new one. It was working last year and the only thing I did was change the oil with Mobil-1 synthetic oil and drain the carburetor for storage. I will appreciate any answer. TIA

Hard to give adequate answers when it is unknown what year the bike is but if the problem started with the eco throttle replacement it is most likley ypou ahev the wrong pasrt, a defective part or the installation was not done properly.

Testimonial: "Firt, I like to thank you for your reply. I'm really sorry this question was placed on the wrong category. It is a Honda EU1000i Generator NOT motorcycle. I'm not sure what year because I bought it used. On the service manual (just saw a few pages in the net), it says access the throttle control motor mounted on top of the carburator, test the resistance between terminals 1-3,and 2-4 and resistance should be 50-70 ohms at each. I have done this and it is per specifications (both on the new and the old eco-throttle motor). I also traced the wires from the motor to the inverter assembly to check the continuity and it is good. Beyond this test, I don't know what else I could test or replaced."

The generator will not hold the load.


Confirm that the ECO-Throttle Switch is in the off position. When in the ECO mode the unit goes into an idle condition and when detecting a load will spin up to operate the load.

In the off position the unit will remain in the ready for load speed taking the initial load with less hesitation.

If this does not solve the problem it is likely the carburetor has some old fuel residue. This residue restricts the fuel flowing through the carburetor. Suggest using a fuel additive carburetor cleaner added to fresh fuel and allow the unit to run under load for an extended period. These gas treatment products are readily available at any auto parts store.

These carburetors have no adjustment for fuel mix and after trying fresh fuel and cleaning the fuel system with additive the only remaining choice would be cleaning or replacing the carburetor.

Where do I get a new carburetor for my EU1000i Honda generator?


Either through your local Honda power equipment dealer, or online at a Honda power equipment distributor like boats.net or dealercostparts.com. I have had great service from all of these options.

My Honda EB3500X Shuts off when auto throttle is switched on making me run full throttle at all times. Cause? Solution?


if your engine shutting down, then your auto throttle is working.
when you hit the switch watch the throttle arm move on the carburetor to the idle position,if so you may have to clean the carburetor jet and fuel nozzle ports.possibly this occurs when unit has been stored for quite some time.once jets are cleaned it should maintain idle.
