Why is gas pouring from the vent line when I go to start it


You don't say what kind of bike or give any other details so I will go with the obvious stuff first, I am guessing you might not ride it often or let it sit up for awhile. Gas pouring from the vent indicates that a float valve is stuck or the needle valve or seat seal has dried up and has fuel being forced around them as the fuel pump pressurizes the carbs. It is dangerous to run the engine with overflow as you could have a fire so your remedy will require you to pull the carbs to fix the problem.

Chain saw won't keep running. runs and stalls


Hi there, Sounds like you need to change the fuel filter.Use a piece of tie wire with hook on one end and fish out the plastic tube with the fuel filter on the end. Hemostats can be used also.Use a turkey baster to **** the gas and trash out of the tank.then pour in a pack of BB'S cover hole and shake the saw.This will loosen any stuck trash and when you put some gas back in it will come out with the turkey baster.The next step is buy a spray can Berrymans carburetor cleaner (any carb cleaner will do.) I recommend saftey glass's for next step.Stick the carburetor cleaner nozzle straw in the tank tube and press the saw trigger like you were going to cut wood,spray cleaner and open and close saw trigger 4 or5 times.If you do this with the carburetor filter off, place a clean rag over the carburetor.When you think it's clean hold the trigger open until the cleaner dries and then install gas tank filter.Now spray carburetor and linkage on the outside.Install clean filter and cover.With new gas&oil mix in tank You should be set to go.If this is not the right solution please post again.Thank You for choosing FixYa.

MY HONDA A.C.E WONT STAY RUNNING WITHOUT THE CHOKE PULLED, BUT RUNS GREAT WITH CHOKE PULLED. I'VE RAN GUMOUT THROUGH GAS, SLIGHT NOTICEABLE CHANGE BUT NOTHING DRASTIC


You need to take the carburetors off the machine and open them up. Pull the jets out, make sure they are clear and you can see through them. Squirt carburetor cleaner through the passageways in the carburetor body and blow the passageways out. That is where the carburetor dirt is hiding. Use genuine Honda carburetor cleaner . Gumout is too harsh for Keihin carbs. If you want to try to clean the carburetors without disassembly buy some Chevron Techron and pour it directly into the bowls. Let it sit over night. Drain your gas tank and follow the directions on the bottle to mix 1 gallon of gasoline in a shock treatment. Pour the shock treatment in the tank , start the bike, slowly take the choke off, and run it till it idles on it's own (usually 5-10 minutes). Be careful not to let the pipes get too hot or they may blue. Then take it for a 5-10 mile drive and fill the gas tank. If the carburetors are not too bad this should clean them up. Other wise you will have to take them apart to clean them properly.

Did you check fuel tank and feed line to carburetor for dirt/obstructions?
Screen inside tank at fuel line connection may be plugged. Pull feed line off at carburetor and see what kind of flow your getting from the tank. I will assume you checked fuel inlet port of carb when you had it off to clean.

The filter sounds like the weighted type. If so, it keeps the pickup line on the bottom. The piece that keeps the tube in the tank can just be a piece of a little larger tube pressed over the pickup tube. Yoi will have to thread new tubing in and pull it out the fill hole. Place the keeper on the tube and press the filter into the pickup tube. Once you are ready, pull the pickup tube inti the tank until the keeper touches the tank side. Hook up to the primer and try it. Good luck...Lee

Will not idle


Your carbs are dirty and need to be cleaned. A tank of bad gas or old gas can gel up the jets. You buy gas, drive home, and when you get there the bike stops idling. Light gelling can be fixed by draining the carbs (screw on bottom of bowl), pulling the fuel line off the tank, and squirting some motorcycle carburetor cleaner down the fuel line. Plug the fuel line back in turn on the gas and start up the bike. If that doesn't work, using the same procedure buy some Chevron Techron fuels system cleaner, pour directly into the carbs and let sit over night (also drain tank and heavily treat one gallon of gas and put in tank) Fire up bike and let run ,idle, slow drive for 5 to ten minutes. This will usually get cycle idling without disassembling carbs. If it still wont idle you will have to take off the carbs, disassemble and clean blowing through the jets and jet passageways.

I've got a 2005 650 that is pouring gas out of a tube under the carb. It only pours when its started and running. Won't idle


Your carb has a hung float or needle and seat issues.

You have to take the carb off the bike and consider replacing the float and/or needle and seat.

You might get by just raising the float level. But this is only a stopgap maneuver. Buy a new float!

You bike is flooding so it wont run right until this is fixed.

The reason its only flooding while its running is because your bike has an automatic gas tank valve that opens when the bike starts and makes vacuum that opens the valve. It is saving you from the bike totally filling up with fuel!
