600 carb. Why is it idling poorly and popping?


Sounds like it is running far too rich. Verify proper spark, verify that the float bowl is not overflowing (replace the float and/or the needle & seat if necessary), and adjust the idle mixture screw clockwise to make the idle mixture more lean. (Many tutorials on carburetor adjustment on Youtube.)

A couple of possibilities- - Float is corroded and not floating - Valve either gummed up or worn and stuck - Float level not properly set

If you had to adjust with a screw driver you are probably altering the air bleed or mixture control and not the idle speed as a rough guide turn the screws fully in but do it gently as winding them in hard will damage the carbs and then undo the screw one and a half turns this should bring the carb back
into range
the idle adjustment is a finger adjustment knob in the center of the carbs(fuel tank lifted or removed to gain access) the problem with too high idle can be du to air leaks through the inlet rubbers leaking or being perished check for gaps bettween mating faces of carb rubbers to cylnder head

Hope you drained the oil and also changed the oil filter.
This problem of cutting off is a carburator/fuel related issue.
I guess the fuel might not be pouring in to the float chambers faster enough.
Try this, remove the air -filter and thn start the engine and as it is about to cut off, block the intake(by your palm) at the carburators and see what happens...taking care not to over block it as the gas may pour out and also flood in the combustion chamber rendering it to shut off due to to much fuel.
If it does respond and stay running thn the problems is tht the carbs are not getting the gas as required and probabley you may have to recheck the float level, the float pin,carb synchro, air-fuel mixture.
Check the pet- c o c k too.
Hope this helps!

Engine will not start,carbs cleaned, but will not fire, no petrol


Check the carb diaphrams for any tears/pinholes? (They are on the top of the carbs) Have you reconnected the breather from the tank? Is fuel getting past fuel tap? Sometimes the vent in the fuel cap can get blocked with crud and create a vacuum which stops fuel flowing.
