As long as your progressive is similar to my holley 5200(should be), the 2 jets you see from the top are the air jets. take some needle nose pliers and pull out the plate that is on top of them. now just screw them out with a flat head screwdriver.

there are 2 idle jets you can get at by screws on the outside of the carb. 1 is right beside the choke and the other is on the oposite side of the carb.

to get to the 2 "main" jets, you have to take out 5 screws off the top and as you pull off the top off of the carb, you have to use needle nose pliers to pull out a pin on the choke linkage(you sould be able to reuse the gasket, if not, trace out the old gasket on thin cardboard and cut out a new one). now that you have the top off you can get at the main jets at the bottom of the float bowl.

Why does my 81 suzuki GE750 die when the choke is released or I give it throttle ?

Pilot jets in the carburators are clogged, probably from sitting for an extended time. (more than a month) Remove carburators and float bowls and pilot jets. Clean or replace jets and reassemble. Good idea to synchronize when finished. Also, you may have some air leaks from the intake manifolds. May be a good idea to replace them while the carburators are off.

2004 300EX honda wont run without choke on.Cleaned carb bowl and fuel tank but still as soon as choke is taken off it stalls.It also back fires through the exhaust.

Hi, most probably you must clean the main jet on your carburator . When you use choke you are inceasing the petrol ratio in the fuel mix by reduciing air ; and you need that because the main jet does not alow petrol to flow
good luck

Tractor will not run unless u put the choke on we have changed the spark plugs,fuel filter,air filter Help

Sounds to me like you need to take the carburator apart and clean it good and make sure there is not **** in the jets / passageways. I would bet there is something in one of the jets that is restricting the fuel supply so the only way it runs is by choking it causing more suction to get gas.

Good luck

My Virago XV535 was in winter storage and now the front cylinder only fires up on a higher rev than idle. With choke on, it contunues to run, but without it stalls. Back cylinder operates normal....

sounds like a pilot jet problem. Pilot jet runs first 1/4 of throttle opening, main jet the other 3/4. Take out pilot jet (usually the smaller one next to the bigger main jet) and leave it in a cup of neat petrol overnight. By morning it should be ok.

I've got a 1985 honda vf500c. It runs perfect when it is moving, but when I come to a stop and pull in the clutch, the engine takes a few seconds before returning to idle speeds and will stall if I don't...

More than likely, the idle (pilot) jet is partially clogged. This is common when it will idle fine with the choke on, but won't idle without it. Sometimes a fuel treatment will clean the carburator, but not usually successful in cleaning the idle jet. Usually it requires removing the carburator bowl and and cleaning with the use of a gauge wire. The idle jet is usually recessed (next to the main jet).

A good video to show a generic carburator rebuild can be found at this link: The guy goes through a pretty detailed description while going throught the process. The carburator will not look exactly like yours, but it will be similar internally.

How to clean the honda tmx 155 carburator

The main issue is usually the jets get clogged due to gas sitting in the bowl for extended periods. the simplest solution is the remove the carb and remove the bowl and needle and float. Then, if possible, remove the main jet and air tube and also the idle jet (the smaller one ) (remove the jet from the bottom and gently push the air tube out from inside the carb body). Then clean the jets in carburetter cleaner in a glass jar.over night.
Take a piece of electric "zip" chord and strip back the insulation to expose the wiring which is very fine copper . use one of those strands to clean the jet until you can see through it and see no deposits or roughness. do the same for the idle jet. reassemble take care on the air tube because it is likely "keyed" in to a certain alignment.

Bike fires up very well but will not accellerate

How did you check the carbs?
With the sysmptons tht you have described, it seems the carburator main jets may be clogged.
Best would be to blow the jets (primary and main) with compressed air and also check the float level.
Hope this helps!

How do i chang the jetting on my kx125.

Remove carburator bowl. Main jet is the brass hexagonal nut-like part inside carb. Remove with small socket or ignition wrench. Check number on side and get 1 or 2 sizes smaller (or larger)from parts dept. They may have also raised the needle (lowered the clip) which is accessible from the top and connected to the slide with an e-clip.

Good luck,

Choke on

Sounds like your idle jet is clogged. This is caused by gasoline evaporating out of the carburator during long periods of disuse which can leave a varnish residue. You will probably need to remove the float bowl and remove the jet to clear it as carb cleaning additives in the gasoline are usually useless for this problem. It is vital that you use the exact fit screw driver on float bowl screws as they are usually very tight. The jet will have a very small opening and you could damage the jet if you use the wrong method to clean it (do not use a drill bit). First try a carburator cleaner spray with the small plastic straw that comes with them. Look thru the jet hole by holding it up to a strong light to see that it is indeed clogged. Then try holding the small straw in the jet orifice and forcing the cleaner into and through the jet. Be careful that you don't deflect the spray back into your eyes. Use eye protection. You could try to soak the jet in a cap full off the cleaner for a while. If that doesn't work a very small stiff wire might work to push the clog out (from a wire brush?). Then try the spray method again.
