My rocket 3 is here in tropics (Phils) and engine over heats


Hi, Hittis and the usual suspects are:
1. Engine oil level and SAE weight are too low or not circulating.
2. Insufficient or blocked air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy combustion chamber carbon deposits.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP, or CMP sensor.
5. Carburetor jetted too lean.
6. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
7. Water coolant old or low change every two years.
8. Water pump failure.
9. Radiator clogged, cap loose or malfunctioning.
10. Radiator fans not coming on.
11. Clutch slipping, brakes dragging, heavy load, towing a trailer etc.
12. Idling too long without moving.
13. For constant hot weather temperatures, mountain, or desert riding conditions consider adding an oil cooler and or cylinder head cooler.

The problem is most likely clogged idle jets. The solution would be to mix some additive, like B12 or Sea Foam, with your gasoline and go for a ride. You want to make sure you ride enough to get the gas into your carburetors. While riding, the additive will clean your carbs, but when you park the bike with the engine off is when it will start soaking into your idle jets. Depending on how clogged they are, it may take a while. The alternative is to remove the carbs, and clean the idle jets. I would try a couple of ounces of cleaner per gallon of gas and then ride it around and see how it works. It has worked for me 3 out of 4 times. Good luck!

I recently bought a Suzuki gs 550 and need to reduce idle speed i don't know how to do this at the carb


the idle adjustment screw is located between the number 2 and 3 carburator float bowls bottom rear. I can bairly get my hand on it, but found that a flat blade screwdriver works fine for making ajustments. backing out the screw lowers the idle speed, while running it in increases it. To adjust make sure the motor is warmed up and the choke is off. Make adjustments from the right side (looking at bike from the back), by pushing with the screwdriver on the knurals of the adjustment knob, pushing knurals up backs the screw out, conversly down runs it in. Try for around 1000 rpms for your set speed. You want it to idle smooth and low, but you want it set so it won't die out when you come to a stop when you are riding. If you can not get the idle in this range, then there is some other problem needing attention. However, the idle at times may run a little bit higher than normal when you come to a stop after a hard ride, and should return to normal set speed after it cools down some. You should also make sure that the throttle cable is set at the proper tenion, if too tight, you won't be able to lower the idle. you may have to make adjustments a few times to get it right.

Hi, I have a 1999 Chico/Citi Golf. The revs stay above 1000 and do not want to drop, I do not even have to pull the choke out. How do I get my revs to drop back to 1000? It use to Idle just below 1000,...


Check that the choke accelerated idle cam is not stuck. Check that the throttle cable has not dislodged and the outer casing is riding on the bracket. Check that the throttle linkages are free and the throttle returns to the idle adjustment stop. If all these are correct, adjust the idle adjustment to obtain the correct idle speed. 700 - 800 rpm is about the right speed.

I have a 2005 harley davidson sportster xl 1200 custom. after bike is at normal operating temp.when i stop for redlight or stop sign, bike idles to fast.i can let out on clutch little bit and it will slow...


If the carb is adjusted correctly, the engine will not idle without the choke when cold. I will usually take at least 3 to 5 miles of riding to get the engine warm enough to idle by itself without the choke. If your bike is a full operating temperature, it should idle at about 1000 RPM. If it's idling higher than this, you need to slow it down a bit.

Remove the air filter cover and look at the top right side of the carb. You'll see a screw there . This is the throttle stop screw. Turn the screw counterclockwise to lower the idle speed to 1000 RPM or so. Blip the throttle and let it settle back to idle. Reset it if necessary. Once set, put the air cleaner cover hand on.

Engine revving on my V-strom 1000


when the bike is at normal running temp, set your idle at approx 900rpm. then rev it up and see if it returns to an idle. note: i had a suzuki that did the same thing. very cold blooded engine. when cold, had to use choke until it warmed up enough to idle. Idle should be adjusted at normal running temp.

RMP drops


you may have a vacum hose not connected for it to stop and not idle
when you turn the a/c on it has a sevo operating the thottle to give it more revs so it doesnt stop
maybe you just need to increase the idle screw a bit
