Check the compression on each cylinder. Chances are good the bike needs a valve job.

I'll check that and the spark plugs. Kinda sounds like a tinning noise may be spark knock? Or valves.

Hi I have a 2002 Corolla with an apexi, when driving it can start to splutter a bit and I have to put my accelerator down fully just to maintain the revs, then as the car slows I have to change down a gear...

Most common problem is the IAC(Idle Air Control) valve.But if you say some times work I will suspect the throttle is clogged. Remove the Air hose,apply full throttle and hold, spray carburetor cleaner on clot using thin long nose player clean inside wall and throttle. don't spray directly inside because the carb cleaner is to aggressive for some of the gasket.
Good Luck

I have a 1998 Suzuki bandit 1200.I'm having problems with the clutch.I think. I noticed when I would accelerate the rpm would jump 4 -5000 before the bike would respond . I let off throttle to stop rpm...

make sure there is 3mm play on the clutch lever , select 5th gear while engine is running and press the rear brake to stop you moving away ! with a little revs try and set off , if clutch is worn it will slip and not stall the engine ! if this happens then replace the clutch plates !

I have a 1986 gs850. when opening the throttle to pull away the motor hesittates making clutch balance difficult to get away. engine feels like its going to stall carbs have been balanced, but the bikes...

Hello raising the needle would help but depending on how long the bike has been in around.
check for intake leaks at the carb joints that connect the carbs to the head.start the bike let it warm up and use WD40spray around the carb joints if the rpm's change you have a leak and recommend replacing carb joints and gaskets while your doing that clean or have the carbs cleaned or rebuilt

97 gsxr 750 doesn't idle back down

Throttle cable maybe the culprit if carbies are 100% good. Check length of cable for kinks, squashing or undue wear on shroud. Does throttle grip snap back at all steering angles. Ball end of cable in twist grip maybe binding in the grip housing, cable often bunches at cable end from severe bending to get it in or out of slot.
Double-check the starting plunger is not loose, and throttle adjuster rotates freely for all carbs.
Check again (I know, it's a hassle) needle jets are all rising and dropping smoothly and in unison. A needle out of sync (on wrong notch) will effect idle speeds.
Tip: If engine revs high and you load engine (in first, slow clutch release, no throttle) and bike stalls, your problem is confined to one carby. If it's got some grunt (won't stall) you have issues with all of them...generally.

I have a suzuki intruder vl 125 and recently when waiting at a junction the engine has just died i have to keep the revs up to avoid stalling. also sometimes whilst moving the engine sounds like it dies....

the stalling is due to the rectifier (its a box under the plastics on the bike and has fins on it) if not this then possibly an air/fuel mixture problem but as with my old vl it was the rectifier

I have a 93 Nissan 300ZX 5-spd that will periodically stall out when braking to a stop.

the idle on the 300zx is supposed to be around 750-900 with the na being on the high end and turbo on the low end. sometimes when you clutch the revs drop and the engine does not recover enough. raising the idle to around 850 will help dramatically. also it would be a good idea to check for vacuum leaks as a severe enough one could also cause it to stall. another thing to look at would be if you clutch is fully disengaging. once slowing to a stop if the clutch is still catchin a little the car will stall. if you have a turbo car the clutch is vacuum assisted and the booster has been known to go out from time to time. i would investigate the vacuum and clutch booster

pictures of the correct vacuum routing can be found here, good luck bud let me know what you find

Lack of power and low revs

Remove and clean the carbs. Remove and clean the fuel petcock water trap then put everything back together. Try the bike now.
If still bad then take it to the shop and ask for a compression check. You may have some burned valves.
