You will need to dissassemble the carb bowls and jets if it has gelled.

In my opinion ethanol is a drink not a fuel????(joke)

I HAVE A TORO S-620 was running fine but stalled and now pully rope won't release and won't start using electric start.any ideals as to why?

It may have stalled due to flooding and the pull starter wont work because the engine is hydrolocked. Take off the spark plug and see if the pull starter frees up. If it does than I think your electric start will work again as well. The cause of the hydrolocking may be a hung open float in the carb. Which maybe due to fuel gelling in the carb from long periods of sitting. So the Chem-Tool idea is a good one but I would also check the carb by having someone take the carb bowl off and looking for gelled fuel.

2007 honda shadow aero vt750 will not stay running after the choke is pushed in

You probably have some gelled gas in the carbs. Take off the fuel line going into the carbs and spray some carb cleaner directly into the bowls. This may take care of a minor clog. If this does not work , you will have to take the carbs off and clean the slow jets and slow circuit passageways before the bike will idle normally again.

I think my carb is gummed up or the jets are plugged. whats the best way to clean this without removing the entire carb or is there no easy way

The only way to properly clean is to remove and disassemble. However if you are just a victim of bad gas, a shot of carb cleaner down the fuel line will remove fuel that has gelled in the jet. Know if the clog is more serious, drain the carb bowl, and fuel tank. Pour some Chevron "TECRON" directly into the carb, mix a Shock Treatment ( about a third of cup in one gallon of gas)and put in tank. Start the bike just enough to **** into jets, and let sit overnight.Drain the carb bowls and restart the bike. let it idle or drive it slowly for five minutes. this will usually take care of minor clogs.When bike is idling or running better drive to gas station and fill the tank. Drive the shock treatment through the bike(100 plus miles), this should clean up the entire engine. If the techron does not clean the carbs in 5 to 10 minutes of running time, you will have to take them apart to clean them properly. Use Chevron "Techron" not Chevron "Fuel sytem cleaner with Techron". Techron is more concentrated.

2003 honda 400 xr will not run unless the choke is wide open. any ideas?

The slow circuit in the carburetor is dirty or plugged up. You will need to take the carb off the bike, remove the bowl, and clean the slow jet and blow through the carb body to make sure it is not plugged full of dirt,corrosion, or gelled fuel. Unless the slow circuit is clear it will not idle.

Will not idle

Your carbs are dirty and need to be cleaned. A tank of bad gas or old gas can gel up the jets. You buy gas, drive home, and when you get there the bike stops idling. Light gelling can be fixed by draining the carbs (screw on bottom of bowl), pulling the fuel line off the tank, and squirting some motorcycle carburetor cleaner down the fuel line. Plug the fuel line back in turn on the gas and start up the bike. If that doesn't work, using the same procedure buy some Chevron Techron fuels system cleaner, pour directly into the carbs and let sit over night (also drain tank and heavily treat one gallon of gas and put in tank) Fire up bike and let run ,idle, slow drive for 5 to ten minutes. This will usually get cycle idling without disassembling carbs. If it still wont idle you will have to take off the carbs, disassemble and clean blowing through the jets and jet passageways.

2003 V Star 650. Had fule pumping out of air cleaner box

you shouldnt have to resync the carbs as long as you dont touch the mixture screws or the screws for the throttle blades. you wont have to pull the jets completly out to clean them just spray the heck out of all the orifaces with carb cleaner once you have them pulled apart. Also whe you put it back together make shure the carb seal to the engine and airbox are tight with no leaks, this will make it run bad also

Carb problems

if & when you do get it running again, does the bike have a petcock at the gas tank? if it does, when the bike is running before you are about to park it for 2 weeks, turn the petcock off and let the bike die on its own (from fuel starvation). this will ensure there is (almost) no gas in the carb to cause any gumming. you can drain the little bit that is left with the carb bowl drain screw. then when you're ready to ride again, simply turn the petcock on, wait a few seconds for the carb bowl to fill, then hit the start button.
