Carb rebuilds are extremely sensitive to being set correctly. If when you accelerate you say it seems to choke out, slightly close the choke or place your hand a small portion over the carb to see if there is change for the better because it sounds like it is leaning out. The float level is so, so crucial for a successful rebuild. If by choking it make is take the fuel better, the float level is too low so check it again. If it make matters worse, there is a problem with the overall rebuild. You must make sure everything is clean and all airway and passages are unrestricted. A simple misplacement of a gasket can cause unbelievable issues. Use a suitable solvent to soak the parts in.

Make sure that the fuel is flowing freely from the tank. There is a screen before the petcock. If the fuel seems restricted, remove the petcock and clean or replace the screen.

Good luck,
Vinnie

SOURCE: Vstar 650 classic. only will idle.

hello and welcome
this is a very very commom problem after the cycle has gone over a storage period of anything over a month or so. what has happened is the deteriorated fuel has plugged the idle jet, and possibley other jetting. this is verified by pulling out the choke allows it to run. because this makes of for the loss of fuel the jets are not produceing. so to fix this you will need to remove the carbs and take out the jets and clean them thoroughly with a carb cleaner and possibly a very small gauge wire to break up builup. especially in the pilot jet. unfortunately fuel added carb cleaners dont seem to work for this kind of problem and to fix right they should be disassembled and cleaned thoroughly. thank you.

SOURCE: XR 100 didnt move for a year.My bad so i cleaned

First Make sure you have all new fresh gas,and new fuel filter,Then check the intake tube between the head and carb for cracks or leaks,And You'll need to go back through the carb again as this is a carb issue,But without doing the above first,a clean carb won't be clean for long.

Can you slowly increase the revs? It sounds like an accelerator pump or debris in the carb.

Why does my 2005 dyna super glide not idle


Running fuel/air too lean or maybe bad spark plug or wire. Just make sure wires are tight. Might be fouled.

Kawasaki Bayou 220, cleaned carb. dont completely understand the floats but all jets are clear. reinstalled fuel lines, throttle, and choke cables. Starts great, also idles great. BUT when i test drive it:...


To start with was it fine before you cleaned it? Is any gas over flowing from the carb at any time? Does it start well when cold or hot? Will it take throttle slowly but not quickly? Did you adjust your air screw? These answers will help me determine what is going on. Did you pull the float off? Did you check the choke and make sure reassembly is correct?

No, nothing else to check. You need to completely disassemble the carb and clean it out. When gasoline left in the float bowl evaporated, it left behind the gummy additives that the refinery puts in the gasoline. This mess has clogged the jets and small passageways in the carb. The reason it runs with the "choke" out is that it is not a real "choke" but rather an "enricher circuit". It has it's own air passageway and fuel metering "jet" in the float bowl.

Good Luck

One floods one cylinder the other dont give gas at all on a 1978suzuki gs400?how can i solve this issue myself?


sounds like you may have to rebuild your carbs. This could mean just removing the carbs, removing the float bowls and cleaning out the jets and float valves. It may however require the purchase of a rebuild kit if the float valves leak. be sure to jot down the number of turns to any adjusting screws for mixture and such so that you may return to stock adjustment when you are done rebuilding the carbs. don't forget to check for proper ignition of spark plugs. make sure choke is not sticking in the closed position.

Bike starts right up in choke take it off choke shuts off


when you rejetted, did you also change the idle jets or just the main jets? if you didn't change the idle jets, that would probably help. remember you might also want to raise the float level height just a little bit to compensate for the extra fuel going out.
