Locate the Gold Screw on the carb which has a visible spring behind the screw and turn it slightly clockwise until the bike revs without coughing

Make sure you do this With the Choke OFF...

Engine stalls out when shutting off the choke


Hey Bill, ...........My crystal ball is working fine..
Sounds like you need a professional carb cleaning and setting.. when a bike won't run unless the choke is on, its either the carbs need cleaning, or you have developed an air leak.. if the bike has been sitting for a length of time..its the carbs...once you get the carbs cleaned and set...you should be fine.. if it does nor correct the issue..please reply to me on here... thanks.. please rate as helpful...

As i take it off iddle the bike runs rough between 1000 and 2000 rev coughs and splutters so riding around town is a problem out on the main road is fine been into pro cycles in hastings they seem to think...


HEy bedfords, Sounds like a blocked pilot/idling jet, go get youself some carb cleaner to poor into ypur petrol tank, if that fails then carbs need to come off and cleaned...also check tank for build up of rust,dirt, etc.

Bike coughs,splutters and even backfires more so in low rev's


Either take the carbs off and clean them or add some fuel additive to clean the system. Sounds like you have a clogged jet.

Hi, My bike cuts out, coughs and splutters if I am out for more than 10 mins on a hot day. Any ideas?


Sounds like water in the gas. Bad gas at an old filling station can be the source. More likely is simple condensation in the gas tank. Drain the carbs if not fuel injected and also drain some gas from the tank.

Will not start.


it sounds to me like you have altered the carb balance and not the idle as you tought,you cant adjust idle with the choke operating even just a bit as this changes which circuit you are adjusting in the carbs,unless you have a set of carb balancers available you will have to take the bike to a shop to get the carbs reset to standard

Engine stalls


I assume your bike has been in storage for awhile...Your engine is running on choke ONLY, that's why when you cover the air inlet it's the same as what the choke does.....your jets in the carb are clogged and will facilitate a removal and cleaning of the carbs my friend.....find a trusted mechanic and you'll be rolling in no time...Good Luck to you......Tim
