The floats may be damaged
try to level the floats with the base of the top part of the carby and see how you go .
you may have to try a few times until you get it right .
Check your needle point too as it may be stuck as well .

2. Float valve sticking.
3. Float valve and/or valve seat worn or damaged.
4. Float misadjusted.
5. Float cracked, leaky or damaged.

Spark plugs wet


It is possible to flood the crankcase on a 2 stroke engine this will cause the plugs to saturate and the engine will not start. disconnect the fuel lines, remove the plugs, have a fire extinguisher close by attach the plugs to the caps and place them in the plug hole but do not screw then in, crank it over live and if the base is flooded the engine will spit fire from the plug holes do it until the engine is dry and then attempt to start it without the fuel lines connected and let it run until it stops. Reconnect the lines and see if it runs. If the float bowl has a bad float it will not shut off fuel to the bowl and flood the engine everytime.

I need to know how to adjust the float on my cvk32 carb


float level is usually per bike. you can try to start at 16mm give or take 1mm this is the setting for a 1989 kdx 200/220. it is measured from the bottom of float to the mating surface just touching needle. the best way is a service manual or owners manual should tell you. You can play with them a little by changing the measurements you can richen or lean the fuel a little, example 18mm would be leaner, and 14 would be richer.

Seems like oil is getting to carb


try cleaning, or replacing your spark plug. 2 strokes often get gummed up, also try draining your carby.

I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO SET THE FLOAT ON 1995 KDX


It gotta close the valve when the bowl is full. You can test by replacing the bowl in place and connecting the gas, if it does not overflow its good, it gotta let the gas enter the bowl till full and it will be correct. Its not a precision settings, just try and see...

1998 kdx oil


Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives.

Use Two Stroke ENGINE oil in the pump. If not doing an automatic oil pump the mix the gas and oil 32 to 1. That equals 4 ounces of two stroke ENGINE oil to one gallon of gas. NEVER use motor oil in the gas. Only two stroke engine oil.

Please top rate this answer. Thanks!
