No its not right,, check the limit screw first to see if its backed off to much allowing the throttle to drop below the idle point, if this isn't the problem,, the carb itself need to be adjusted

How do ball bearings go into a rear tire of a bike

Ball bearings do not go into a bike tire, they go into the wheel hub of a bike. These bearings are in a cage and pressed into the hub of the bike.

How do I cure vapor lock?

If you're getting vapor lock, the bike will die after a few miles, and not restart for several minutes.
If the bike dies, immediately remove the gas cap and see if the bike will restart right away.
You could also ride it without the gas cap (try it on a tank that's 1/4-1/2 full, NOT fully full, because of gas splash) and see if it doesn't die after a few miles.

80 XL500S Bike runs few minutes and dies like its out of gas

I,v got one as well 2 things can cause that, petrol or spark,check to see if the float is set right height and needle and seat aren't blocked and only letting a tiny amount of fuel threw you should pull carb apart and give it agood blow out with compressed air and clean the jets I think there are 2 if remembered if its starting,normally its a fuel problem could be tank tap halved booked as well normal on bikes been sitting awhile then after that get anew spark plug sometimes they start breaking down when get hot 9 times out of ten that's your problem any way try that it should work good luck

On my 72 cb100 when I pull the clutch in, the bike dies while idling. It runs fine while getting gas, but does not run at idle. It will start right back up when it does die. Any ideas?

The slow circuit of the carburetor is dirty. Take the carburetor off and remove the slow and main jets. Shoot carburetor cleaner through the jets and through the passageways of the carburetor body to be sure that it is clear. Does the bike die when you pull in the clutch and put it into gear? If it dies when you put it in to gear , you may have clutch plates that are stuck together. Take off the engine side cover, remove the clutch springs, pull out the clutch boss and the clutch plates. Carefully separate the plates, replace any damaged plates, coat the plates with oil and put them back in the same order. This should make the clutch act normally again.

Bike is cutting out and dies out when you throttle hard. symptoms of water in fuel, bad plugs, or flooding out. Pipes are black inside and black is coming out. I have put heet and foam in gas tank - put...

make sure they are the right plugs, i have had many a yamaha rider swear they put the right plugs in and found out that they used the wrong resistance plug. there are two types of plugs, resistor and non-resistor, if you use the wrong type the bike will idle fine and even run ok at low rpm, but as soon as you throttle on, it sputters and wants to die, check that first and repost.

I have a 2005 Yamaha YFZ600 with only 3500 miles on it. The bike won't start and if I do get it started once I give it gas it stalls out. I've change the gas filter and clean the carburetors and floats....

Now that you brought up the sound phenomenon, it is not a normal procedure for any fuel pump. To me it seems that the fuel pump is faulty and there is no fuel going to the carb. And that is why it does not start. And when you try too hard it does start with whatever you have and then goes off when you rev it up. So open up the fuel pump and check its bearings etc. The noise means that the bearings are not up to the mark.

Bike starts and runs but will not idle properly and dies but ill start right away give a little gas and dies. The gas is a year old could that be the problem 10 hrs on the bike

Bofore doing anything else, you should flush the system and put fresh gas in. This is probably what is causing the problem... the Carburettor probably wants a good cleaning too.

First what kind of noise. Plus did you replace the cam chain tenisor when you replaced the chain. That will make a noise in the top end. Other than that piston slap will cause some noise but you will hear it more at higher rps most of the time. I have seen a lot of problems latly where the tank does not breathe properly so it will start spudder then die a few times. Usually it is the gas cap.,
