My 1982 Honda v45 will not run without the choke on. It sat in the garage for years with old fuel in the tank. We drained the fuel, changed all the oils, etc and completely REBUILT all 4 carburetors. I...


The slow jets and adjoining passageways are still dirty. As painful as it may be , take the carbs off and clean the slow circuit again or it will never idle. Double check the fuel pump is working properly and the fuel filter is not plugged. One time it took me four cleanings to get all four carbs working on a Suzuki that sat for five years. Also make sure none of the carburetor boots have developed rips from age.

Wont start


If it sat for two years, you probably have varnish and gum buildup in the carb. You'll need to take the bowl off the carb and clean it with carb cleaner. You'll also need to spray the cleaner around the linkages and the jets inside. Be very careful taking apart the carb so you don't lose the float needle.

The carb may need cleaned! make sure tires are not dry rotted! The seals may have dried out after a long wile but in most cases you should be alright!
