I have a older 7 horse Honda on a kart. I bought it used and it had sat for a little while. It had the same problem, only difference is that mine would only idle for about 20 seconds then cut out. I found the reason to be a gunked up carb. The main jet was full of hard crust. Almost looked like calcium but I don't know why there would be calcium in there. I gave the carb, needle and float, choke, throttle, and the whole outside a good strip down and clean. It runs like brand new. I would start there if I was you.

2005 roadstar silverado starting riding bike cut out, now it wont start, turns over perfect, any ideas?


Hi, you need to first determine if the problem is ignition or fuel related. Spray some starting fluid into the air filter inlet then try to start it. You need to open the throttle 1/4 to 1/2 open. If the engine fires for a few seconds, you have a fuel delivery problem. If the engine does not fire at all, you'll need to verify you have no spark. Then you'll know it's an electrical/ignition problem.

The speed sensitive power steering wheel warning light just came on. What does that mean?


The sensitivity of you power steering has been cut back so you don't oversteer. No harm or defect. It's just letting you know in the event you notice the cut back and don't think the syeering has failed.
