Johndeer la140 runs good on full choke but throdle lever does nothing it is not broke the butterfly is moveing in the carb but no gas response runs good on full chock but when i put the choke down ...


WHEN YOU GIVE A CARB CHOKE, IT RESTRICTS AIR FLOW AND GIVING THE ENGINE MORE GAS INSTEAD OF A REQUIRED MIXTURE... USUALLY THIS IS FOR STARTING IN COLD TEMPS. UNTIL THE ENGINE WARMS UP AND YOU RETURN THE CHOKE BACK TO NORMAL. THAT IS ALL THE CHOKE DOES.... IT DOES NOT MAKE THE ENGINE RUN BETTER BECAUSE YOU THINK IT WILL.

Gas Trimmer will not stay started


Many times with a gas mix, after sitting for a while, the mix separates and gums up the carb. Taking the carb off and soaking it overnight in a parts or carb cleaner and running carb cleaner through the tank and gas lines will cure this.

MY SAW WONT START AFTER I PUT NEW PISTON AND HEAD


Do you mean that you replaced the piston and cylinder? The head is built into the cylinder. If you did change these did you also change the crank seals at the same time? Are you getting spark? Is it getting fuel meaning is the spark plug wet with gas when you try and start it?

Just got it...and dont know how to start it


Old models. make sure it's in Neutral. If it's a kick start, find the kick starter. Turn on the gas petcock, turn on the key, close the choke, make sure the manual advance is retarded if you don't have an auto advance and kick until it starts. Don't forget to take the choke off if it doesn't start the first or second kick so you don't flood it. Take the chok off if it starts but give it a chance to warm up if the engine is not warm.
New models.
Make sure it's in Neutral. Turn on the gas petcock. Close the choke. Turn on the key. Find the starter button located on the handle bars for stock models and where ever for customs. Push the "Start" button to turn the engine over and start.. If it doesn't start right away open the choke so you don't flood it. If it does start, open the choke and let it warm up for a couple of seconds intil it's running smothly. Put into first and ride off into the sunset.

Special instructions for sensitive bikes.
If it doesn't start at all get a shotgun, wedding ring or anything that will coerce her to start. Kick until you've kicked your guts out, tried pop starting her by pushing until you drop or praying to god to chase the gremlins away.. Sing songs, do anything that works, then put her in gear and ride off into the sunset when she finally gives in. Note: Some force may be necessary to convince her she wants to run. Kiss her when she does and don't let her hear you curse her when she doesn't. - Ruff

I have a 1994 Intruder. It only starts and runs


The hot side is running way too lean. Have your carbs synchronized may help. Try draining the bowls. Good luck.

Engin wont stay running


was there trash in the old filter? If so let it be your guide on what to expect.Clean the carbs out, get the trash out of the needle and jet and the needle seat. Also make sure the tank is clean too.You do not have to remove the carb to clean it,just the airfilter housing and fuel bowl.Then you can remove the float the float-needle and jet. Remember no fuel will run out of the tank unless fuel cut off has a vacuum on the small vacuum line going to it.

1994 intruder will not start


the first thing is to make sure the gas has not gone bad, it has a carb... so if you smell gas strong try pulling the choke all the way and and giving it full throttle turn and turing it over to clear it out. try that first and see what it does. it may run down the battery so be carefull

hope this will help a little
