Question about Honda Motorcycles
Sounds like the fuel is being obstructed somehow. Try checking be turning the fuel shutoff valve off. Then disconnect the fuel hose from the tank to the carb at the carb, Hold it over a container and turn the fuel valve on. Gas should jout POUR out of the tube. If it doesn't, there may be an in line filter that is plugged, there may be grunge in the bottom of the tank plugging the outlet, or possibly, the vent in the gas cap may be plugged which would create a vacuum in the tank as fuel was used. This is rare but can drive you crazy trying to find it.
Hope some of these ideas will help you.
Remember, You're playing with gas, so NO SMOKING!

I guess you will have to reset the air-mixture screws of the carburator/s.
Not bad if you check the condition of the spark plugs...if its ..'Whitish' means lean i.e. less gas in, Brownish...means ok, 'Blackish'...means too much gas in .....'rich'
In your bike's case you may find it 'whitish'.
Hope this helps !
