Question about Tank Motorcycles

1 Answer

Bike starts and idles smooth and evenly(no skip beats or rev changes).when I then attempt to rev engine it proceeds to splutter and can not get any power to even move off in 1st gear.

Bike tank is clean and full, inline filter is fresh and unblocked. air filter is clean. all full supply lines and all other breather/vaccum/venting/overflow tubing is clear and free of any blockages.

Could be some dirt or moisture in the carberattor try loosening the drain screw on the bottom of the bowl. If this doesn't work the carb needs a good clean.

I'd guess: not enough fuel flow. could be a fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel pressure regulator. No check engine codes? I would think there should be some that would help diagnose.

Starts idles for a minute then dies


Have you checked the actual fuel pipes for flow ? You might need a carb refurbish kit. Weak vacuum causes similar type problems.

1.9 dci splutter on idle


What are the fault codes. Also it is still missing when you rev it up, the increased engine speed masks the missfire.

Why does my DT125 splutter at hight revs


Sounds like either the bike is starving for gas at higher RPM's, or you're hitting the rev limiter.

I would start with new plugs and cleaning the air filter. Also, if the bike has carburetors, I would drain the carbs. Condensation from the gas tank may have gotten into the carb float bowls.

You might have a leak in your tube mount between the carb and head. Let the bike idle and spray some starting fluid on the front of the carb. If the idle shoots up, you have a leak. Either cracked/weatherd or not tight enough

1984 aspencade starts w/choke and revs up, runs smooth. Take off


My 'wing won't run unless it has been warmed up some. I would suggest that you r&r your carbs to make sure the jets in the bottom are working correctly. They tend to get plugged up, especially after sitting & the aluminum flaking off inside... Rick
