I can start my bike up, with full choke on, but after a few minutes it will die. Also, whenever I give it gas with the throttle, it immediately dies.


Something has to be fubar with the main jet circuit of carb. That explains why it starts and then shortly thereafter shuts down. Also explains why when you give it gas it cuts out cold.

U have ignition but NO engine will run without proper fuel flow.

What can I do for a 2003 750 Honda Magna motorcycle miss that has a pull choke


Lubricate the choke cable. it SHOULD pull out and turn either way a quarter of a turn to hold position. K and N filter will make mixture run lean. Try to turn mixture screw in or out until it runs best. You may need to fit a larger jet into the carb as it will be jetted in the factory for a restrictive air filter assembly
K and N will be able to advise

Would not start after a time it started then died when i trided to rev engine up


Try pulling out your choke and not reving the engine if your engine fails to stay started depress the
choke and try again but this time jump on your bike and don't give the scooter two much gas and run it around a little bit, you might need to place some premium gas in it. I't could well be bad gas.
How long has the scooter been sitting?

I just bought a 2004 Honda Shadow 600cc that had been sitting for a while. When I pull the choke the engine will idle but as the choke hits the middle the bike dies. also once its running I have to ride...


Sounds like you have a float sticking in your carburetor, is this a single carb or a duel carb? , also gas can go stale and your bike will run like **** if it also has been subjected to tank condensation and water in your gas, that also maybe your problem, I would drain the tank and drain the carb or carbs, and start off with fresh gas and would use 89 octane or better, also pickup some StarTron Enzyme gas treatment, it will stabilize your gas for up to 2 years, and remove the ethanol from your gas, that is a bad for your motor, try it you will never go without it. Good luck, Rick.

This is a classic example of a clogged pilot jet in the carburetor. You need to clean the carburetor circuits and jets.

After starting the 04 vulcan 800 i push in the choke and it dies. Is this a carb/plug problem or something else?


The machine is doing the right thing by dying. The role of the choke is to block the air intake and allow more gas to go into the carb. It is meant for starting a cold engine. If you apply choke to a running engine, it will flood the carb and cylinder and not allow it to ignite. The spark is enough to ignite a mixture os gas and air and not gas alone. Hence the engine dies. So give choke only when starting under cold/freezing conditions.
There is nothing wrong with your bike.

Wont run /idle


i'd start with removing the carbs and giving them a thorough cleaning as when bikes sit for so long, the carbs begin to get gummy/varnished from the old gas.

check for blocked holes in the pilot jet & main jet and look for "hard & dried up" gas in passages. be careful of the float bowl gasket as to not tear it or you will need a replacement.
