First, make sure your air cleaner is not plugged or dirty. This will cause a rich mixture. Next make sure the choke is completely off when bike is running. Gas is not leaking past the choke plunger seal. If the mixture needs to be adjusted , it is the screw under neath the carburetor, up front by the intake manifold. Before making any adjustments, count the number of turns IN, before the air screw seats lightly. This should be the factory setting. Call a dealer and find out what the standard setting should be. Start there and make minor adjustments(1/8 turns) till you get the spark plug color you desire.

What is choke open ? on honda rebel 125 ..... choke sign ? or arrow ?

choke is basically a knob which is used during the first start of the vehicle in a day, when its too cold it actually delivers some extra amount of gas to the engine and helps deliver a rich mixture of gas.

it is situated near the carburetor or the fuel pump unit.
you just need to press it back for better mileage......

Hey i have a honda rebel 125cc. The problem is that the bike is stifled when it is idling. I think the problem is that the bike is not getting enough fuel .. but what can I do to fix it?

What your looking for is the idle adjustor on your bike. It should be on your carburator sticking off your main blocks. It will be a little knob that you can turn to adjust the air to fuel ratio. Youll want to do this with the bike running so you canlisten to the engine until it gets a nice even roar to the engine.

Over flow tube is leaking gas on a new cmx250 rebel. Is the float stuck? How do I fix it?

If its the overflow, cleaning the sticky carb float could be simple fix.
Turn off fuel, drain the carb, with drain open spray carb cleaner into the bowl through the drain.(enough to rinse away varnish) then try it out, if all is good you are done. If it still runs gas out you will need to open the carb up to clean out the trash.

Honda vlx 600 seems to be running rich,took out a plug and is damp with gas. How do i adjust carb to fix the problem?

There are two set screws on the throat of the intake. One is the high side and the other is the low side. You need to turn the high side about 1/4 turn clockwise. If it is still rich, do it again until it is nominal.

Hi there, 2005 honda rebel 900 mi.still do i fix it? to get it to go into neutral from 1st?linkage is 1/8"free play.there is very little pull on the cluch lever to engage or to disengage.also...

Remember neutral is a 1/2 notch toward second gear. Not all the way down or a hard pull up toward second gear is a light half notch between first and second. With the engine running it will almost always walk the shifter past neutral because of centrifical force from the engine.
