Engine stalls out when shutting off the choke


Hey Bill, ...........My crystal ball is working fine..
Sounds like you need a professional carb cleaning and setting.. when a bike won't run unless the choke is on, its either the carbs need cleaning, or you have developed an air leak.. if the bike has been sitting for a length of time..its the carbs...once you get the carbs cleaned and set...you should be fine.. if it does nor correct the issue..please reply to me on here... thanks.. please rate as helpful...

Won stay running


Needs a carb adjustment, cleaning, or possible rebuilt. Try adding a little seafoam and running at half choke for about 5 mins or longer this may clean it up nicely. also check the spark plug.

My sons honda qr 50 wont start full engine strip dwn all new gaskets etc will start from engine start just wont keep going,the problem is with the choke i think as it is snapped my question is do u need...


If it's cold, you need the choke to richen the fuel mixture until the engine warms up. Use your hand to partially cover the air intake. Once it starts, use your hand to feather the amount of air you allow to the engine until it smoothes out.

I have a 1992 zxr750 at first it started boging out afetr about 30 mins of riding did it again the other day now wont even start unless choke is on and even then it sounds like its running rough as


Maybe the choke once on is not turning off fully? When running and you stick choke on in normal circumstances, it gets all "stally" doesn't it? Found my cable simply sticking choke half on on my zx7r.

Starts but takes a very long time to warm up. continually stalls when throttle applied. have to keep feathering throttle to keep running . spits ,sputters , backfires until fully warmed up


ColdI engines require a richer mixture to operate smoothly...so they have an enricher (aka choke).
If you are finding you need to keep the choke on longer.....you may have a lean mixture than normal.nother
Start by inspecting the carb and intake manifolds for any leaks (loose fittings....cracked hoses) that could be drawing in air, leaning the mixture.

Another common issue with bikes that have sat over winter...is plugged idle jets.....the fuel varnishes the tiny orifices in the carb. You could try a product like Seafoam in the fuel tank....run it abit to get the treated fuel in the carbs then let it sit overnight...allowing time for the chemical to work. Since the bike runs fine warm...this may clear things up for you.

My 1998 Suzuki gsx 600 only starts ion full choke and won't stay running off of choke unless I run it about 20 min. Even then it dies off of choke what could be the issue?


What you have here is a fuel to air ratio issue. You are getting to much air to the engine and that is causing it to die when the choke is off. There is a screw that you can adjust for the air mixture, and this may take a little time to correct as it is a trial and error thing. All bikes are going to be a little different, even if they are manufactured by the same company. I hope that this information was useful as that is my goal.

Bike has been standing for 18 months without the engine being spun. Bike will not start without choke. when choke is off engine stalls


You need to completely drain and refill the gas - the gas you have is stale and doesn't have enough power to run the bike.
The battery needs to be fully charged - not just jump started. It wouldn't hurt to do an oil and filter change as well as a air filter and plug change.

Motor bike wont rev above idle weth choke on


This to me sounds like you need a carb cleaning. If you have let the bike sit for an extended time the carberators maybe clogged or gummed up. This has to do with the new gas that is out there now. It is cheap and with the introduction of Ethanol alcohol now it is even worse on being stable for long periods of time. I have seen fuel go bad in as little as 3 weeks.. One quick check you can do is open you fuel tank and smell the fuel. IF it smells like varnish it is probably bad. You can drain the tank and add new fuel and that should solve your problem. Keep in mind, that the carbs need to be drained as well to get the old fuel out of there also. Make sure you have a battery charger going when you start crankin that puppy, because you will need lots of extra juice to get that baby to fire up. If it is starting now and runs on choke, that means your idle jets are clogged. Best repair is to remove carbs and clean idle jet. Unless it is fuel injected.
Let me know how that goes and we can proceed from this point. I am a certified mechanic from MMI as well as a HDTV GURU. Smiles. have a good one.
