The low speed circuit in the carb is plugged up a bit. clean the carb with spray carb cleaner. Spray into every hole you can find in the carb body. Spray from both ends if possible. Pay special attention the the highlighted parts. Remove them and do the cleaning. Put it all back together and hopefully the blockage has been cleared. Please rate my answer.

2004 Honda CRF 450 R won't run with the choke off

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.

Starts on the first kick with the choke on, but it will not idle with the choke off

Clean your carburettor and make sure you have clean fuel, very common problem with a lot of bikes. You can try adjusting the idle up to get you going temporarily.

Is the choke on in the up or down position crf 150 f 2005

try in both positions when trying to start it,kick it a couple of times in the up position if it starts and idles a little high then choke on,then push it down while running,if idle smooths,then choke is off,may have to do it couple times,but you will be able to tell the difference.

My 05 crf 450r will not idle when I turn off the choke it also is backfiring and poping when I give it gas . Could it have something to do with the hot start cable ?

Check your pilot jet is not blocked or try adjusting your idle screw for the idle issue and it sounds like its runing lean which can also make it idle low and rough and will cause it to pop and backfire. Dont think it has anything to do with your hot start cable that will make it run it run better if its running rich but your is doing the opposite

Honda 2003 crf 230 bike idles fine with choke on,dies with choke off

You sound like you have a blocked idle jet in the carb. Honda trail bikes love new oil, clean air cleaners and clean fuel. After a while a build up of tannins and crusty residue will invade the carby bowl and usually migrate through the carb via the jets and the emulsion tube where the jet needle runs. The easiest way to fix your problem is to remove the carb and go through it. Clean all jets and check float height and generally get it back to scratch. You will have to re- adjust your idle and mixture settings after you have fited it back to the bike. If you are not Mechanicaly savi then I would suggest you take the bike in to your local honda dealer and get them to go through the carb for you.. It's not a big problem and is easlily fixed.

Hope this helps...
