I would clean the tank and the filter on the fuel valve. Then I would seal the valve hole and use " KREEM " inside the tank. Kreem is a liquid resin that will seal the tank so rust will no longer be a problem. Add an in-line fuel filter when remounting the fuel valve. Below is a site for Kreem and a site for parts that may help you. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

1996 kdx 200, starts good, boggs out and shuts off while riding like it is running out of gas. any ideas?


my 1998 kdx 200 had the same problem last week. I know exactly what the problem is. My air filter was so clogged with dirt,oil,gunk, that there was absolutely no air or very little mixing with the fuel that it just refused to run. I fouled 3 plugs trying to make it back to campground. I also had black gunk just a dripping from my exhaust which has never happened before, but since it wasnt getting any air it was running so rich. At first i thought that i got water in my carb or fuel lines somehow,cause we were going through some nasty deep puddles. when i got to camp and removed my seat and saw my air cleaner i knew exactly what the problem was. I cleaned out the air cleaner and she ran again...but just like you stated, on the trail my bike acted like i was running out of fuel and just stalled. wish it wasnt when i was doing about 35 but ya know how it goes...i let my bike sit for 5 min, cause wouldnt immediately restart, then it would start. I would make it another 500 yards and stall again. confused i switched tank to reserve, still had plenty of fuel but i was stumped. then eventually i would foul a plug but i always carry 3 plugs even though i make it 2 seasons on 1 plug....so im 99% sure thats your problem....

A week ago i took my bike to get fixed at a shop it had been sitting for about 2 years the guy said it was a dirty carb and a dirty gas tank he cleaned both and the bike ran fine i rode it for 2 min. or so...


Try replacing spark plug,and check for spark if you do good,check to see if you have fuel to carb,at bottom of carb there is a float bowl screw loosen the screw and let fuel drain,tighten screw,choke and try again,sometimes when bike sits that long it may need one or two cleans,the bad gas that was in it still has varnash build up and can still clog up the jets.hope this helps.

Cleaned the carbs, changed the plugs gapped at 34


I would be checking for air leaks, this will give you a lean mixture. In particular look for the seals for the balance tubes and each carb.

Air fuel mixture problem


if your plugs are black, the bike is too rich. lean out your mixture screw a little at a time until it seems riight. hard for me to tell you exactly when it's set without me seeing or feeling it myself.

Leaking gas badly from carb. 2003 750 shadow spirit


The gas has varnished and turned to ****. You need to take it to a shop and have the carbs cleaned. Next time you decide to store the bike put fuel stabilizer in the tank and run the bike untill the stabilizer gets into the carbs. When you want to store it, turn the gas off and let the bike run all the remaining gas in the carbs out. That is your best bet. Chaz Moto DC

Start and die


Fill up the gas tank, clean the fuel filter, and then check to see if your carb jets are clean. Remove the jets from the carb and attempt to look through them in the light. If you cannot see light through them they need another cleaning.
