I would remove the carb and then the float bowl, jets and fittings and soak the carb and parts in de-natured alcohol for an hour. The alcohol will dissolve varnish buildup from dried fuel. Have a thin wire on hand to aid in clearing fuel circuits in the carb body. The wire on a service tag such a used on Stihl chainsaws works well. Now use a spray carb cleaner to spray into every fitting and hole in the carb body. Spray into both ends of each circuit. Wear gloves and goggles. Done properly, this and a new spark plug should do the trick. Set the spark plug gap to .30

I have a honda tiller that I have checked and it is getting fuel to the carburator and has good spark but will not continue to run. I can get it to turn over by spaying carburator cleaner in the carburator...


You will need to remove the float bowl from the carb and clean out the jetting. There are small tubes that serve as a restriction for the amount of fuel allowed to enter the engine. These can easily be plugged up with particles and grime after sitting for extended periods. Also make sure the adjustment needles are not screwed down all the way. This, in some carbs, will completely cut all fuel.

1997 Honda CBR 1100 XX. Bike builds idle slowly when cold . right side exhaust is forceful and hot while left side exhaust in minimal and warm only. Changed plugs and made no difference. Seems to idle...


Clay, you have a tiger by the tail. There are a lot of little parts to the carb system. I will try to assist you in the basics without carb removal. This may require a few replies back and forth. Start by turning off the gas then drain the carbs. Now turn on the gas and check to see that fuel flows into each carb. If gas starts flowing out of all the float bowls, now that the gas is back on, then all carbs are getting gas. To drain the carbs just remove the drain screw on the bottom of each carb float bowl. Two carbs have the drain screw on the left, two have it on the right side. Reply with what you find. tombones49_51.gif

I have a fuel leak on the left carby the bike has been siting for a while drain fuel and put new fuel do they have nedle and seat


Check the float and float valve in the left carb.
If it was left sitting on the side stand, that float bowl would have been pretty full, and is likely stuck open.
You can try spraying some carb cleaner through it, but chances are you'll at least have to remove the float bowl and clean the parts really well.

I just bought a 1984 honda ascot vt500. It will turn over but not fire. It has been sitting for somewhere from 1 year to 3 years. When i try to jum p start it all of the lights and everything works.


the carb is clogged up. You will have to remove the float bowl and clean the jets. use spray carb cleaner. Use a very fine copper wire strand to probe the jets--do not scratch or englarge. Empty all the gas out of the bike including fuel lines. use fresh fuel. Be sure to count the number of turns you make on any adjustment screw and write them down. This will make it much easier to put back together in proper adjustment.

Drain the carburetor. There should be a drain screw/bolt on the side or bottom of the float bowl.

Left cylinder won't fire...bike stalls in 3rd gear...


Check for spark on both cylinders. Chances are it has been years since anyone paid attention to the ignition points. Download a free PDF service manual at the site below. Get the 15th manual from the bottom of the Honda list. Yes, it is a 250cc manual but the points and timing are the same as the 200cc. It is the nearest free manual I could find. Google " service manuals honda " or try your local library. Often guys will donate manuals to the library.
or go to www.repairmanuals.com

FREE > http://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp

Also Google " vintage honda parts "

If the gas tank is rusted inside then line it with a liquid liner. Google kreem fuel tank liner “ or go to www.http://www.4secondsflat.com/Fuel_Tank_Sealer.html

Drain the carburetors. There may be a screw on the lower side of each carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, (not all bikes have a water trap bowl). Install an in-line fuel filter. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carbs to fill with gas. Install new stock NGK spark plugs and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetors from the engine.

FOR EACH CARB > Remove the float bowl and clean the entire
carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.

Please rate this solution. Thanks earthworm03!

Are you adding oil to the gas? (32/1 = 4 ounces per gallon)
Do you still have spark? Install a new stock spark plug.
