Question about Honda CB 350 F0 Motorcycles

1 Answer

Hello, I have a 72' honda cl350 twin. I put on new boots for the carbs because I had an airleak but now it bugs under acceleration. It does not want to go above the idle rpm. If I hold the throttle all the way down I can just hear the carb sucking but no change in the rpm. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Take the carbs off the bike, then take them apart.

Unscrew the jets from the carbs.

The jets have a long brass needle that moves up
and down when you twist the throttle.

The jets have three sets of holes, idle orifaces, midrange, and
full speed.

Take a very fine piece of wire and poke through each oriface to
remove varnish.

Hold the jet up to your eye so you can see through each oriface.

Check to make sure float level is correct.

It's best to replace the float needle.
The needle will have a rubber tip on it.

If you do this, your bike will be good to go.

I hope I have helped you.

86 Honda shadow vt500c. Recently cleaned Carb new spark plugs fresh gas. After third gear when I accelerate it loses power and bogs down really low. Thoughts?

been doing this a long time and the vt's and vtx's 500 and 600 are stressing. the carb is your problem, high speed (main) and needle tube are not getting what they need. if needle is adjustable or washer is missing under the needle and or fuel air mix is wrong. really there is no real science to carbs. check it tweak it try again.

02 honda shadow vt750cd backfiring, sluggish acceleration

Sounds like you need to have the carb jets cleaned. You can try seafoam that you add to fuel tank and ride it to see if that will clear it up, but I have had the same problem with my VF750C Honda Magna with only 8000miles and mine turns out to be fine tuning the injectors. This is only after the carbs have been reworked and cleaned.

Wont accelerate

check under the plastic where the air box snorkle sits. Sometimes the foam jams up under there and plugs off the air box. if not that check your air boots on the carb. they are famous for cracking and sucking in to much air.

My RAM 100cc quad bike wont start. iv checked the flow of fuel into the carb and it all seems okay and the spark plug is sparking. The electric start button doesnt work though and when i kick start it...

You need to check if there is any leaks from the carb to the motor. Make sure the carb is clean. An airleak could prevent the motor from starting as well as checking the carb itself ....the floats the jets things in that nature.

Replaced diaphram and gasket between tank and carb

This sounds like an airleak between the carb and the engine acting like the throttle is open.. Try and take some carb cleaner and spray it where the manifold bolts to the engine if you hear the engine bog or lower the rpm's then replace your manifold gasket should fix this problem

05 750 brute force missing badly

Just had same problem. Take carbs off and clean all jets and bowl. Be carful front and rear carb have different sized jets. When you put quad back together put entire airbox together even the cover. This quad will backfire unless air box is complete. I bet you anything your carb is full of trash.
