It star with hoke on the maximum position only, is i throttle it dies imediatly. WHy ?


The choke setting required for starting is related to the temperature. In cold weather, a full choke is normally needed ; in normal temp (70 degrees F) a moderate choke may be all that is needed. Of course, once the engine starts, you may need to adjust the choke as the engine warms up - when ready to ride, you will want to have zero choke set. Hope this helps !

Choke dont work


if too rich adjust choke leaner
if too lean, adjust choke righer.

from 1920 to about 1988 , usa, 70 years we did this.
no more. well we do, but most dont now.
i still have 1 twin carb motor cycle and one single carb VW 1968.
both restored.
also the chock heater must work and the choke spring not old.
the old bi-metal spring that is old become lazy,/crazy. kick it to the curb for best experiences.
if water heated choke the water actually must flow here.
if not, it will fail.
there are 3 common types.
electric, needs 12v.
water, needs 180F hot water actual flow.
and exhaust choke stove heater. (a small horror this, dont ask)
there are others, but would need carb name and p/n

Hello folks; My Husqvarna yth 2348 rider is very hard to start on the initial start. After once getting to run, it restarts easily with little hesitation or need of choke usage. Help please on how to start...


Sounds like your choke cable needs adjustment. Follow the choke cable to where it mounts on the carb.

Move the choke lever at the same time watching where it mounts to the carb. there is usually a clamp holding the cable in place, you may need to loosen the clamp and slide the cable back to make the choke fully close

84 ford f150 carburetor was rebuilt runs great when cold kicks and bucks when warm have to stomp on throttle to get to go


Sounds as if your choke is hanging up, or not opening at all. With the engine warm remove the air cleaner, there is a butterfly valve right inside the top of the carburetor If this is closed or mostly closed your choke needs to be adjusted. There are manual and electric chokes, yours should be an electric choke. First with engine cold and the key turned to on check for voltage at the choke wires. If you have voltage, then you might just need to adjust your choke. Electric chokes heat up an element inside the choke to tighten a spring and open the choke butterfly valve at the top of the carburetor. There should be between 4 and 5 screws that hold a ring around the choke housing on the side of the carburetor with the wires going to it. While holding the round choke housing in place loosen all of the screws on the retaining ring. If you can feel the choke housing wanting to spin turn it the opposite way that it wants to turn. Do this in stages until your choke butterfly valve is open with the key turned on, or the engine warm. Hope this helps if you have more questions just ask.

How do i adjust the choke on a 2005 honda shadow


http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/2005-honda-motorcycle-vt750dca-shadow-spirit-carburetor-component-parts/o/m2904sch406961
Not to sure about this one, ok, if the choke wont stay out, then try to trace the choke cable to the carby, have a close look and see which parts move on the carby when you activate the choke, some thing just needs to be tightened up, so that the choke stays on. Also, you say the bike stalls and runs rough, is this with the choke on? If yes, then that is just a sign that you dont need so much choke on. Just try half choke. Do you live in a warm climate? if so, then you dont need much choke . So there is no adjustment really, only by the amount of choke you apply. Also remember, never use the choke if the engine is already warm. And, only use the choke for the first start of the day, when the engine is stone cold. The correct way to to start a cold bike engine is, pull the choke on fully, crank over engine, but DO NOT give it throttle, (this defeats the purpose of using the choke), when engine fires up and starts, slowly push the choke in till a smooth, high idle is acheived. You should be able to ride off slowly, and push the choke off after about a mile.

I own a S50 and the engine will not start unless I hold the choke out manually way past what it will do on its own. As you can imagine this makes it very, very hard to do since the clutch and the choke are...


Follow the choke cable down to the intake and see where the bracket is holding it, make sure it is adjusted correctly so when off there is no play. See if there is a spring on the choke, if there is you might need to remove it or get a less tight one, it has probably been swapped out at some stage. If removing the spring check you can manually return the choke before riding, if it can't be returned manually then replace the spring. You possible need a new choke cable

Flooding,black smoke,run hard,choke sticking


The first thing i would look at here is the choke pull. Make sure that after the car starts, the choke props open. Also, as the engine warms, make sure the electric choke is opening up. If not, make sure you have 12V to the choke. If so, replace it. This should solve the problem.

But let me know if you need any further assistance, ok? We'll get it working! :)

Choke light


Sounds like your choke is sticking.Try to make your choke stay open with something after the engine is warm and see how it runs then.If it solves it you may need a new choke or get it adjusted.
