IF it is flooding, yes it is a carb issue. They probably need to be cleaned and synched.

Honda Fireblade - Flooding (carburettor models only)

Dear Blade Runners

A friend of mine had an interesting problem. The bike would be ridden - no problem, parked and then when trying to start the bike after a few minutes or sometimes an hour or two, it would just planely refuse to start. You check for spark: it's there; you check for fuel and/or a fuel vacuum blockage and all is fine. Out of desperation you try starting the bike again after a day or so whilst driving around in your cage; it starts first time.
Sometimes you would ride around - no problem, stop to put in petrol or buy stuff at the cafe and bam; same problem again.

Cause: one or more needle and seats are leaking, causing flooding.

Solution: replace all four needle and seats, and btw while the carbs are out give them a good clean.

For a perfect job; synchronise the carbs afterward

When turn on petrol and kick bike, petrol is running out of overflow pipe on carb and bike wont start, and bike sounds flooded.

You have a sticking float in the carburator, due to old gas, or dirt. The float moves a needle that turns on and off the flow of fuel into the carb bowl.

Runs as if it is flooding black smoke and missis

It sounds like a stuck or worn needle in the carburettor. It is like the ball valve in your toilet. If it is you will need to replace it and the seat. It is inside the carburettor and allows the right amount of fuel into the fuel bowl. Over time the it wears and the needle does not sit properly in the seat so it leaks. Some times it wont close properly if it becomes gunked up. If the needle sticks open the carburettor floods and nothing works properly. It is a simple enough fix to do yourself but a good mechanic should be able to sort it in about half an hour.

I have a 1984 honda xr 350 and i've changed the spark plug, pulled out the carbs and cleaned them, and changed the airfilter. I still can't get it to kickstart no matter how long i try. its getting gas and...

Those bikes can be a pain to start after they've sat awhile. What always worked for me was twist the throttle a bunch. I mean make sure its flooded. Then lay the bike over on its left side until the gas runs out the overflow. Stand it up and lay it down until it stops running out. Then I squeeze the decompression lever and cycle the motor. Now just barely pull on the decompression lever to open the valve just barely. Get it to top dead center and give her a good kick with a twist of the throttle. Becareful it could kick back.
This technique works for when the bike stalls when its hot. Most important part is if you think its flooded lay it over and start the process over. Remember your XR has two carbs and will flood QUICK. After some practice you'll be able to hear it in the exhaust pipe if she's flooded or if she trying to come around. Trust me. I have four of these bikes. Two 83's, one 84 and my beloved 85.

Gsxr 400 bike wont start

You will have to remove the carbs from the bike and disasemble them and clean them. You will need to get a manuel and it will step you threw the prosess step by step.

Trimmer dies when you apply throttle

Sounds like it might be getting to much gas. What position is the choke in during all of this? If you're giving it throttle it may be flooding itself out.

( 93 cbr600f2 was crashed and rebuilt seems to have hot spark but wont start smells like its flooding Made just a couple gurgle sounds out of the pipe then a small backfire where do i start fire carbs...

sound like it's flooded over. i have one of these bikes for a stunt bike and had a similar problem before. use a fully charged jump box. connected it to your battery and hold the start button. don't use choke or give it any gas either. it mike take about 5-15 minutes to start, but it will.

Fuel line from carburettor - is this a return feed?

usually their will be a tube leading off the carb to let excess flow drain from the carb to aviod flooding.
