Question about Ryobi Garden

Engine starts but dies when I pull throttle trigger

I have a Ryobi 725r and it's worked fine for years. I never really did any maintenance, but it's now giving me trouble. I replaced plug, cleaned filter, and replaced fuel lines. Now I prime it, pull 2-3 times until it almost starts, move choke from full choke to partial, and it starts nicely (just as it's supposed to), but only if I don't pull the throttle trigger. I move the choke to full open and it stays running, but if I pull the trigger more than a little, it starts to die. Release the trigger and it comes back to life, although just idling.

You need to adjust the high speed needle turn it out in 1/4 increments as you throttle it, low speed may have to come out alittle but do high speed first. I had to answer this as I use to have a pastor john in sturgeon bay, miss him alot.

The engine dies when you try to rev it


You have to adjust the H needle on the carburetor. Quarter turns, when adjusting the high, the H needle, you have to hold the trigger in, throttle high... if it bogs, turn the h a little at a time and depress the trigger slowly until u hear the sweet spot...very simple fix.

Troy-Bilt Hand-Held Blower dies when warm and throttle wide open


You reported that most of the items I would've suggested, you have checked...
Good job.
A couple more things:
  • Replace fuel filter, it's in the gas tank
  • Check and clean the Spark Arrestor screen at muffler, when they plug up, it's a major restriction to exhaust gas flow
  • And check and adjust High/Low screws at carburetor, video attached.
  • And clean or install rebuild kit for carburetor
Good luck...

My throttle continues to stick. The motor races and it sounds like the engine is about to explode because of its speed. I opened up the handle and the spring seems out of place. When I squeeze the trigger...


You should see some small wear marks inside the handle where the spring is supposed to rest. Also, check the throttle cable where it exits the plastic engine housing and goes to the throttle plate on the carburetor. Make sure it is connected correctly and not binding on anything on the way to the carburetor. There really aren't any diagrams or pictures available on the net of the insides of a Ryobi weed-trimmer's throttle trigger and spring.
When you squeeze the trigger the steel cable should move, the cable housing should NOT. If you look closely, you will maybe see how it works and all goes together. It is not that complicated.

Replacing Drive Shaft for a Ryobi 725r


The lower flex shaft should cost around $40, unless you order it online and have to pay shipping. You should be able to get one from your local MTD dealer. (Ryobi is owned by MTD)

The pull rope broke on my ryobi 705r/725r gas trimmer. I have all the screws off but it seems to be held on by the center shaft that spins. What do I do now?


I have the same issue of clutch removal on a Ryobi 725r. Actually the clutch finally died after many years of use.
Instead of using a screwdriver to hold the piston I recommend using a piece of clothesline rope. It will be easier on the internal components and won't scratch up the cylinder walls or piston. Just be sure to leave a small amount hanging out of the spark plug hole so you can pull it out afterward.
