No fuel getting into the combustion chamber. the fuel gets there through the carbs. are you getting fuel to the carbs? is your fuel pump working? fuel filter clean? carbs clean?

29 mm smoothbore carbs on 1980 kz 1000 motor idles down real slow then shuts off


Hi, Virgil and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Air fuel mixture screws not properly adjusted.
3. Inlet system air leak.
4. Leaking accelerator pump.
5. Loose low-speed jet.
6. Plugged low-speed jet.
7. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
8. Enrichner valve/choke not seated or leaking.
9. Multi carburetors out of sync and need to be balanced.

I have a gardentec 52cc chainsaw which wont start. I have a spark and fuel getting thro.


Hi you mentioned that you defo getting spark is that from spark plug against side of engine, try this put a very small amount 50/50 pet oil inside cylinder head through sparky entrance screw spark plug back in try it now if it pops abit no matter after 5 times you have a carb prob float faulty jets blocked, blocked feed line, Advise you need a bowl petrol no smoking wash carb in it blow clean jets put back only when all is clean check petrol tube sometimes they go hard and block up make sure petrol is getting to cylinder head, hopes this helps

Hi, i was riding my kx 125 03 yesterday and the dyed on me


Hi,would start by taking the head off and have a look at the top of the piston, if it hasn't got a hole in it.. good....the bottom of your plug may have broken off, this may have damaged your rings so you'll have no compression. You'll have too strip it down further. When you're sorted check your oil/petrol mix and your air screw setting then check your plug regularly for discolouring or oiling up. Go for it, and be methodical.

1999 VULCAN HAS OIL LEAKING AROUND THE SPARK PLUG DOWN A WEEP HOLE AND OUT THE BACK OF THE CYLINDER HEAD. WHAT IS CAUSING BUILD UP OF OIL IN THE SPARK PLUG WELL? REAR CYLINDER RIGHT SIDE PLUG


hi, sounds like the oil seal in the rocker cover has failed, remove the rocker cover and you will see a rubber seal, this seals the oil inside the cover, however when the seal fails around the spark plug hole, oil leaks into spark plug well and out of weep hole.

Hi my kawasaki ltd 1000 will not start but if i put petrol into the head through the spark plug holes it will start why is this


Your fuel pump has gone dry, it needs more than just a crank to get it primed. Starting the engine just how you are will get the pump primed and going, you should be all set. Leaving the bike only a few days will do this. Hope this helps.
