Very common problem, You will have to remove the carb.s and clean them. Gas dries and turns to varnish after 3-4 months, this dried gas clogs up the jets and ports in the carb.s. If you chose to do this your self there are adjustment screws on the bottom do not mess with these screws. Just clean the bowls and jets, clean one at the time so you do not mix up parts.

Rototiller won't start


A small engine carburetor sitting with gas in it is a a problem waiting to happen the ethanol in fuel clogs carburetors and it sounds like it has done it to yours remove and clean carburetor with carb cleaner that may do the trick or you may have to soak it in cleaner solution and rebuild if the rebuild does not do the trick you may need a new carb as some of the jets are clogged Try to run engine completely out of fuel leaving the carburetor empty s to help with this problem in the future also using a fuel additive for ethanol is helpful

My 2006 katana starts up runs for a while then shuts off


Has the bike been sitting for a while? If it has, then the carburetor(s) probably needs serviced. It might also be a clogged fuel strainer (usually located in the tank) If the service history of this bike is unknown, then check for a really dirty air filter(s). Try to keep the bike running by giving it some throttle. If it stays running, then the carburetor(s) will probably need to be cleaned and rebuilt. If it still shuts down, then verify fuel flow. Disconnect the fuel line from the carburetor(s) and observe fuel flow when the fuel valve is turned on. Fuel should flow out in a steady stream. If it doesn't, then clean the strainer. If it does, then drain the fuel out of the tank reconnect the line(s) and refill the tank with fresh fuel. If the bike has been sitting for a while, you could have a fuel volatility problem. I hope that this information helps you solve your problem. Thanks for trying FixYa.

I'm buying my friend's Goldwing 1200, 1986 FI. Bike has been garaged for 4yrs and I tried to start it with new battery but won't start but it cranks, has gas.


Check the kill switch rock it back and forth to be sure it is making contact. Open it up and spray it with contact cleaner that is safe for plastics available at radio shack. After sitting for four years I would start with the fuel system. New filter and NEW GAS and check the fuel lines for cracks and leaks. I have seen bikes that sat for 6 months and needing the carburetors cleaned and reset.

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.
