Bike runs for a short time then dies


I would say lack of fuel. Choke or enricher not working properly. Motor needs retimed.the fact it started means ur getting spark. Weather or not at the right time. Try a shot of brake kleen down bore&try again. If it starts right up the timing is close, if it dies again, ur not getting enough gas.

Hey Elijah... the main jet on these bikes is not "adjustable"...it is a set sized jet.. what you did is probably fixed the air leak that was causing the rev issue..

Would not start after a time it started then died when i trided to rev engine up


Try pulling out your choke and not reving the engine if your engine fails to stay started depress the
choke and try again but this time jump on your bike and don't give the scooter two much gas and run it around a little bit, you might need to place some premium gas in it. I't could well be bad gas.
How long has the scooter been sitting?

When i start the car in the morning it trottles a little bit then dies. when i stop reving the car the engine dies.


if this car is on petrol turn the choke on especially on cold mornings also check the spark plugs make sure the gaps are correct using feeler gauges and there is no carbon built up on them and check the ignition timing also clean the airfilter out which is located on the top of your carburetor

hope this helps

sounds like you might have some trash in carb being a clogged pilot or main or needle seat in not letting in the proper amount of gas check all passages and use fresh gas if it has been sitting

Last time I STARTED MY VSTAR 1100 I CHOKED IT FOR 10 SECONDS ON HIGH THEN MOVED TO MEDIUM CHOKE FOR 4 THEN TOOK OFF AT NO CHOKE. 2 WEEKS LATER. I started up bike Choke on high bike barely wanted to idle...


Sounds like your flooding it out with the choke out. Try the next time you go to start the bike when it's cold with the choke out and when it starts push the choke all the way in and keep it running with the throtle. If it runs better after doing this then your flooding it on start up. Use 1/2 choke to start cold and see what it does. Good Luck

Wont run /idle


i'd start with removing the carbs and giving them a thorough cleaning as when bikes sit for so long, the carbs begin to get gummy/varnished from the old gas.

check for blocked holes in the pilot jet & main jet and look for "hard & dried up" gas in passages. be careful of the float bowl gasket as to not tear it or you will need a replacement.
