    Hi Michael if your sure of the carbs check for air leaks in front of the carbs if its ok check compression and valve clearance. If it runs ok on the choke it rules out the ignition system. Regards Jim...

A choke reduces the air flow to make the mixture rich. Unless the mixture is too lean because of fuel issues.

My honda vtx 1300 will not run with choke all the way in but will run with the choke half way in. what is the problem?

If your bike will only run with the choke half way out it's starving for feul. You have a clogged jet. By choking the bike you cut off the air and allow more feul to run through the carb.

How long has the bike been sitting? The gas may be bad or the carb might need to be cleaned out or choke may be sticking.

Runs great with choke on but continues to die when choke is turned off. 2008 ktm 530 exc

Hey mate,

you definately have a problem with your fuel system, I would say you have had some dirty fuel thru your bike, the first thing i would check would be the fuel filter between your tank and the carby then if still does not run drain your carby bowl... after this if it still does not run you will need your fuel system/carb stripped down and flushed would recommend getting this done by a mechanic as there is alot of small parts involved...

Hope this helps

1999 kawzx6e will not start. new battery and spark plugs. bike makes a buzzing sound when trying to start it.

ok man 1st check these out,

check your fuel line, carbs, choke, high tension sparks, and air filters. Make sure u dnt flood the bore with piston by giving has while starting. It will make the plug to leak or even stop its function for a while. And set the correct plug gap. Check wether a spark cud be seen when the wire is kept a mm away from da plug and try starting. dat shud do it. otherwise tell me.

Yes, it could (and probably is) be an air leak. Check to be sure the carb is tight in the intake manifold, and make sure the hot-start isn't loose and is sealing properly. Also make sure all of the exhaust system joints are tight, an air leak in the exhaust will make a four-stroke pop and backfire like an old work truck with no muffler...
