My last bike was a 1998 zx7r that i had from new. it was always a pig to start if i didnt get it right.
i had to start it with full choke and NEVER touch the throttle or it will never go.
keep hitting the starter if you have to but dont touch that throttle.

Timing on a 1997 50 hp Evinrude model BE50TLEUC.Carbs has been clean new plugs refuse to idle and struggle to start.


OK.. have the carbs been professionally cleaned and set?
Has the engine been sitting up? - Check the compression.
If the compression is good and the carbs ARE clean and set properly.. check for air leak.. this will make idle rough and hard to start.
Check the choke and make sure its working properly.

Hello,my 1983 ford ranger doesn't start it does smell like gas when im cranking it over .ive had rebilut carb,cap rotor ,has good spark on new plugs ,new fuel pump,new filter and carb is getting gas.im...


That solenoid is the electric choke and it will flood the truck out if it's not working properly, have you tried to hold the butterfly opened while cranking it, if it starts then, you can unplug the connector to the choke and run it, it just might be hard to start when it's cold.

Goped sport wont start has good spark, compression, axhaust is clean, air filter is clean.


The problem you are describing indicates a Lean (not enough fuel) condition. Are there any adjustment screws? If playing with the adjustment screws doesn't fix it, then I would try cleaning the carb again. I used to work in a lawn mower shop and I know these carbs can be very tricky. It takes multiple cleanings and compressed air. Now an afterthought. Is the choke adjusted and operating properly?

1997 Kawasaki ZX-9R Ninja will not idle without choke


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Vacuum line from the petcock to intake manifold cracked.
5. Float needle and seat sticking.
6. Float level too low.
7. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
8. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
10. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
11. Slow fuel jet clogged.
12. Faulty fuel pump.
13. Faulty auto choke or wiring connection.

Bike sat for 2-3 weeks. Will now start with choke, can give gas on choke but when off choke bike will not run - chokes out when throttle engaged. This is my first bike, no knowledge of engine.....


Carburetor issue. Most likely the pilot jet is plugged in one or both carbs. Remove the carbs as a set, remove the float bowls, remove and clean all of the removeable jets, (do not use wire to clean jets, use carb cleaner or the proper jet drills if you have/know how to use them). Reassemble and reinstall making sure that carbs seat fully in the manifold boots.

Sounds like the carbs were not properly cleaned or set up. Choke should cause the cold start rpms to be higher than what you are experiencing. Application of choke to a warmed up engine will usually cause the engine to stall.

Flooding,black smoke,run hard,choke sticking


The first thing i would look at here is the choke pull. Make sure that after the car starts, the choke props open. Also, as the engine warms, make sure the electric choke is opening up. If not, make sure you have 12V to the choke. If so, replace it. This should solve the problem.

But let me know if you need any further assistance, ok? We'll get it working! :)
