You need to take the carburetors off the machine and open them up. Pull the jets out, make sure they are clear and you can see through them. Squirt carburetor cleaner through the passageways in the carburetor body and blow the passageways out. That is where the carburetor dirt is hiding. Use genuine Honda carburetor cleaner . Gumout is too harsh for Keihin carbs. If you want to try to clean the carburetors without disassembly buy some Chevron Techron and pour it directly into the bowls. Let it sit over night. Drain your gas tank and follow the directions on the bottle to mix 1 gallon of gasoline in a shock treatment. Pour the shock treatment in the tank , start the bike, slowly take the choke off, and run it till it idles on it's own (usually 5-10 minutes). Be careful not to let the pipes get too hot or they may blue. Then take it for a 5-10 mile drive and fill the gas tank. If the carburetors are not too bad this should clean them up. Other wise you will have to take them apart to clean them properly.

Homelite gas edger cuts off after running about 10-15 seconds


The fact that is runs slightly longer on full choke may point still to a fuelling issue.. Does it actually Rev in those 10 seconds or does it just want to bog down and stall.?

What is causing steam from my exhaust pipe and bike won't stay running?


It's probably dirt in the carbs and the steam is the un burnt fuel from a stuck needle valve in the carb

Only stays cranked on full choke.


your carb. is gummed up. Get some carbeurator cleaner spray and spray it into the air intake as it is running until it clears up. if it wont clear up, you will have to have the carb rebuilt.

I have had the same problem.
The first time the solution was to replace the rubber membrane underneath the primer bulb. Take off the bulb, then remove the plastic part underneath the bulb. There is a rubber membrane underneath that. The ethanol in the gasoline tends to deteriorate the membrane. The honda dealers sell them for about 14 dollars.

The second time the problem was caused by the gas cap, not properly venting. In this case the engine would start and run, but when I gave it full throttle, it would quit.
It got so bad that it wouldn't even run. I noticed when I loosened the gas cap it ran great.
So I took off the cap, removed the inner parts, and got a diaper in and pushed it though the holes in the plastic part underneath the cap, and through the rubber plug in the center. I did this a few times and check with my mouth to see if I could pull some air through the cap. When it breathed satisfactorily, I put the cap back on the gas tank and it ran great. Now it runs better than new.

Check the crankshaft position sensor. If the plug is loose or the sensor itself is bad it will cause similar problems
