Your carbs not getting enough fuel check the bowl and jets. I run a pice of wire down the jets even if they look open just to be sure. Speaker wire strands work well for the tiny holes

Start OK but if after warm up I push the choke to run, the engine stops, I used 4 time before and idled OK


Push choke to run???then not use on a all ready warm engine you mean you push the GAS lever ? remember a choke can work as a throttle for the engine. it can have a double function if your electric start contact is damaged you can use it to stop the running engine also.
How long you are owner of the machine , read the manual about it !
If before it worked good on this kind of proceedings as described ? then if you mean you push the gaslever to run Try it to do it again without the airfilter. I THINK YOU HAVE An AIR problem by carburator if its so clean the airfilter if its not to old. or replace
You can use for short time the choke in most cases minimize use of the choke short not more then 2 times max you pull.or electric start.
AND very important control in any case allways for THE RIGHT OIL level !!

If the engine is warm(hot) do not use the choke forget it it has no use. control your spark plug electrode i think you will find the cause.

Engine runs fine. But it quits when I pull the trigger on the wand to start washing


Does this behavior change if the engine is warm and on minimum choke? Do you get any water spray before the engine quits? Carburetor could be dirty or float stuck. Try putting dose of carburetor cleaner through engine and cycle choke lever and engine speed lever back and forth while engine is running after it has warmed up without running water spray. See owners manual.

How to start the generator


Hi Joe, I had asked for a little clarification and have not received any information. I will answer this question based on the generator is in good working order and it is a recoil start. Open the petcock, (this is the fuel valve) and give it about a minute to fill the fuel bowl on the carburetor. If your generator has an engine an on/off kill switch, set to on. If the generator has an auto idle switch set it to off. If the engine has a throttle lever located under the carburetor, push it all the way down (full throttle). Pull the choke knob out completely, there is a detent on the choke for half choke, pull it past this for full choke. pull the recoil starter rapidly. As soon as the engine starts running push the choke knob to half choke, this will allow the engine to run smooth while it's warming up. Depending on the climate that you are in, warm up time will vary. After a minute or two in cold climates start pushing the choke knob in, if it starts to run poorly pull it back out too the half position and let it warm up some more. When you can posh the choke in without the engine faltering it is ready to go. In warmer climates you might be able to start the engine without the choke or in the halfway position. Robin Subaru makes some of the finest small engines available. I would choose a Robin over a Honda every time. I hope this gets your generator going, and once again this is based on the generator being in good working order. Good luck, Michael Burke.

I just bought a 1999 Honda Aero and it did not come with an owner manual. Where is the choke on this bike. Is there any free down loads with "getting started" on the Honda Aero/shadow of this...


The choke is on your left hand handle bar, it is the black slide down lever. 1. Push the lever inward to choke the bike 2. give the throttle two turns and start the bike. ( do this so you don't drain your battery, even with a new battery you need give the bike the gas to start or you will have to recharge the battery) You will hear the engine change pitch when it warms up, push the choke upwards and the bike should idle on its own.

What position should the choke lever be when starting a cold 1986 Shadow motorcycle?


The rubber cover can be tightened or loosened to hold the choke lever in place. I like to set the rubber cover just tight enough to keep the choke out but if I start driving it starts to slip back in by itself. If you pull the plunger all the way out it will raise the idle and should be the best position for the initial start. You may find you have to touch/ twist the throttle just a teeny bit to get the first pop. Then run full choke for the first 10-20 seconds till the fast idle is steady. Then push in the choke till you have a slower more comfortable fast idle. At 45-60 seconds push the choke in just enough to keep it idling. It should be safe to slow drive with the choke out about a quarter of the way. Take the choke off completely when the bike will idle on it's own 1 to 2 blocks down the road. If the bike is still boggy on take off put enough choke back on to get a smooth take off , then while slowly cruising during warm up push the choke all the way back in. Take it easy till the engine is warm.

Trouble starting below 70 degrees


Are you pushing down on the choke lever really hard? These things have a really tight choke lever. I choke mine and reduce the choke to maintain 1500 or so RPM until it is slightly warmed up. Then it runs fine. These are cold blooded machines.

Hope this helps.
