They rely on vacuum to work so the carburetor should suck. If the bike will run and you are getting some blowback from the carburetor it may be a bad exhaust valve. Some times you will get blowback as the engine is stopping or you are trying to start the bike with a weak battery. If in doubt a compression test will let you know if you have a bad valve.

    no,that wouldn't make your timing off,your timing is off because of a couple factors,your timing chain is stretched,or broken or a valve is stuck open,you will need to tear down your motor to verify,but,only after you have determined that there is spark.

My 2006 vtx 1300 after changing oil, air filter on max throttle position from exhoust pipes goes black smoke. What it could be?


Hi, Martynas your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on start-up may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

Generator is using oil and blowing white smoke. How do I find the vent that is plugged?


I don't know of any other "vent" in that engine other than the breather tube that goes from the head cover to the air cleaner. If there is excessive oil being sucked through that and in through the carburetor, I guess I would wonder about compression getting past the rings causing excessive crankcase pressure. The only other way for oil to get into the combustion chamber and into the exhaust would be through the valve guides. Of them, the exhaust valve guide is generally the one that wears first.

2004 Honda civic 1.7 vetch. Car blew a spark plug out of head destroying coil and shorting out eld sensor. Put in heli coil, new plugs, ignition coil and eld sensor. Car started and ran perfect until...


If you had a head gasket leak then there would be higher oil pressure but I think you would notice other signs of problems. Air and oil are typically sucked into the carburetor or air intake from the top of the valve cover. This is the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) Valve. You could try changing this valve. They are cheap and it is pretty easy to do yourself. In Honda's they can have problems leaking oil from this point and if yours is clogged for some reason, that may help (not sure).

As far as blowing a spark plug out, that is a pretty big problem. Immense pressure has to happen for the threads to fail, unless the spark plug wasn't screwed in all the way. I would say there is a mechanical problem in your engine somewhere. Either timing is off slightly or a valve isn't working correctly, or there is something in the cylinder that hit against the spark plug.

How did they repair the spark plug problem?

Where does the long (30 inch) vacuum hose from the Air cleaner hook on?


You should be able to hear a sucking sound from where the line is supposed to go. Probably on the base of the carby. You can spray a little aero start around where you think the leak might be ie: carby. the aero start will be sucked into the open vacume port & the revs of the motor will change. Sorry I don't know exactly where it goes.

I have a VTX1300c and the ignition fuse keeps blowing and have checked all wires and have no problem so what could it be


Is the fuse blowing just turning on the key....or while the bike is running?

I'm not familiar with your particuliar model....but if the fuse blows immediately....test the Kill switch on the handlebar for a short.
Test your ignition coils primary and secondary for an internal short.
I think your bike has a fuel pump, if so...perhaps there is a short there, or its drawing too much current.

2004 Honda CBR 125 R carburetor tuning


Hi, Darren if you have changed your fuel delivery system, air filter size or flow rate, mufflers or exhaust system or a significant change in altitude your carburetors need re-tuning and if your fuel system (gas tank, filters, fuel valve and carburetor) is contaminated with ethanol sludge, varnish, rust, dirt, water etc. or your bike has been sitting for months or years without running these components must be "PROPERLY" cleaned and reassembled "CORRECTLY" before any adjustments can be made. Tuning your carburetor is fairly simple once you understand the basic principals. You engine is a simple airbox sucking air in and blowing it out, it is finely tuned at the factory for maximum performance once you upset that delicate balance by changing air filters, camshafts or exhaust systems your performance may go down the and the engine may run poorly, you need to compensate the air-fuel mixture in the carburetor in order for the engine to run smoothly and at peak performance. If you are running multi carburetors you need to sync them first and make sure your air cleaner element is clean and dry for paper elements or lightly oiled for foam and meshed elements and properly installed. Here is how and where you compensate trouble: "TIP" if your engine "BOGS" your not getting enough fuel.
1. Closed to 1/8 throttle is managed by the air screw and pilot/slow jet.
2. 1/8 to 1/4 throttle is managed by the air-screw, pilot/slow jet, and throttle slide.
3. 1/4 to 1/2 throttle is managed by the throttle slide and jet needle.
4. 1/2 to 3/4 throttle is managed by the jet needle, needle jet, main jet, and air jet.
5. 3/4 to wide open throttle is managed by the main jet and air jet.
6. Wide open throttle is managed by the main jet.
If you are running lean, spark plug electrode color is white, engine runs hot and feels like it is starving for fuel you need to go up on the jet size or move the c-clip down one notch. If you are running rich, spark plug color is black or dark gray, the engine runs cool, and bogs down when accelerating you need to go down on jet size or move the c-clip up one notch. When your carburetor is properly tuned for maximum performance your spark plug electrode will be a light tan color like coffee with cream. If you prefer fuel economy over performance you can go down on main jet sizes until a satisfactory level of lower performance is acceptable versus MPH, your spark plug color will be whiter and your engine will run warmer. These tuning adjustments will only make improvements if your intake and exhaust system have no air leaks or sealing issues and the entire electrical system is in proper working order and you have no mechanical issues.

Dysin vacuum blows air instead of sucking it!


Dysons aren't supposed to clog up, but they do. There a number of ports you can open to see if there are clogs in any of them. Usually a clog is why it will blow air and debris out instead of sucking. You just need to find it.
