My bike rides fine but when you get to 4th gear it slows down to 40 and in 5th to 30 and slower its also is a nightmare to start any ideas

Carbs should be left alone apart for basics in revs. I would up the tick over too, 2000rpm,air filters, add k+n or like,to improve breathing+add some fuel booster,cleaner,is it running too rich or lean?smell the exhaust fumes that will tell you.check breather pipes, filters,are they blocked?Sounds like it is a major carb tune or gear ratios have been altered,highly unlikeley!!Sounds like BREATHING to me!!! Float chambers+valves in the carb is highly possible.What bike is it and how old will give me more ideas. Cheers simon.

Hi, I bought a brand new Keeway Outlook 125 jusy 5 weeks ago. Since I bought i had problems when starting it so they put in a new carburator that had a new automatic choke on it. I still have problems...

Is it normal that a new bike dies on you as you drive it? No way my friend. The carburetor should have a thermal-choke and it probably needs some adjustment.

Keeps cutting out at low revs & hard to start

have you tried turning the tick over screw in ?
carb may need cleaning ie idle jet which is the very small one located next to the main jet
try these first if no joy you may need to look at the piston and rings condition because low compression could also cause this problem
hope this helps

Bike starts fine with the choke and will idle without it when warmed up. However, when I twist the throttle the engine dies. I have just had a bunch of work done with an independent shop, including...

hmmm, a few posibilities, might well be split cab diaphragms but overhaul should have spotted that. sounds like either too much gas or not enough, either flooding/gassing up or fuel starvation. could try running it without the aire filter too see what happens. it should run weak so if bike is better then you have too much gas, if bike worse then runnig weak to start with. I have seen this before with one particular cause.... petrol tap was leaking, gas runs past pistons when bike not running, soaks past and into crankcases. as breather recycles vapour back in to air box, when bike warm it's as rich sas hell. take of oil filler cap on engine and have a good sniff. you should smell only oil, if it's a strong smell of petrol, change oil and filter, dump petrol tap or see if new seals available.

Kawasaki kmx 125 2002 wont start

To me I want to know how old that gas is. If it smells like old paint or stale at all you need to rid the complete system. Then you need to take your carb. off and take it apart and clean it and all the jets, since you said there was sand in the gas tank.
