Did you put fuel stableizer in for winter time? This is a fuel additive that helps the fuel not turn into a varnish in the carbs. If the bike sits for any period of time, this can happen. (BAD GAS) is what i call it. I have see the new gas go bad in as little as 2 weeks!! Anyway check to see what the gas smells like and if your not sure what new gas smells like go fill up a 5 gal container and use as a reference aginst your fuel in the motorcycle. Also, does it idle smoothly? If not, the carbs could be out of sync. Keep me posted and let me know what you find.. Good luck Sincerely HDTV GURU JAY

I have a 150cc scooter that boggs down under load exeleration. I put in new carb and fuel pump still same issue. please help

Apparently carb and fuel pump were not the problem. Do you have adjustable valves on your engine? If so adjust the valves to specs. Your problem sounds as if your valves are out of time. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Carburater adjustment

Look for vacuum leaks in hoses and gaskets. If you feel comfortable I would remove it and rebuilt it. Could be the float is sinking because it has a hole in it. Parts are relatively cheap but hard to spec out. Should have a number on the carb body that the shop will want in order to find the parts. May be a number on the bike, not the model number. Check the book if you have it or ask a shop where it would be. Do not use wire to clean out ports!. I use brake cleaner (green can).

Need float specs fuel leeks out overflow on carb. hanging should it be right below the gasget at the toe or the seem?

I would suspect that your problem is something other than the float setting. If your carb has been running properly until recently, there may be trash in the needle and seat. Float settings don't just change by themselves. Once they're set, they stay that way until someone changes it. I'd be glad to send you the float settings but you didn't tell me what kind of carb you're running on the bike. Harley riders are noted for changing the type of carburetor they run on their bike. If you're running the stock Keihin carb, the float level has to be set with the carb on an angle. To illustrate this, I'd have to send you a picture. I'd be glad to do so if you're contact me directly as this forum only allows a file size of 150Kb or smaller. Contact me at and I'll send you a picture of how to set the float level of the Keihin CV. If you are running a different type of carb, let me know and I'll send you information on that one as well if I have it.

Good Luck

My 1982 honda CB750 wont run worth anything

I guess you will have to synchronize the carbs.
Check the float levels too in all the carbs.
Check the valve clearance.
Check the carburator intake mounting rubbers for leaks.
Hope this helps!

V-Star 1100 one cylinder only

Try spraying a little carb cleaner in the carb when the bike is running. If it picks up, you still have a carb issue. If not, I would look at the compression of the cylinder and make sure it is within specs. The electronics on the carbs are not for fuel, but to let the computer know what to do with the timing.

it sounds to me like the carb float levels are out of adjustment and it is overfilling the bowls,or,the needle valve seats are worn and leaking,which will allow fuel to continue filling the bowls even though it looks like they are closed,remove the carbs from the bike,remove the bowls,turn the cabs upside down close the floats(push them right to the top,this simulates full bowls)then blow throgh the fuel inlet pipe,if you can hear air escaping from around the seats they are faulty,also check that the seats themselves are tight in the carb body,i dont know why but gsxr carbs seem to shake the valve seats loose..hope this helps
