Why does 2002 honda xr50 run better with choke at half way instead of off

The jets are a little clogged or gummed up. Clean the carburetor jets and it will run better with the choke off. What happens is with the choke off, there is too much air and not enough fuel in the air fuel mixture because not enough fuel is passing through the jets but the same amount of air is always allowed. With the choke on, you are restricting the amount of air flow which helps to correct the fuel/air mixture into the engine. To clean the jets, you will remove the float bowl from the bottom of the carburetor, there will be at least two jets (sometimes up to four) in the bottom of the carb, remove both jets and use carb cleaner and compressed air to clean them. DO NOT USE any type of tool because it can scar the jet passage and change the fuel flow as well. Also be sure to use the proper screw driver to remove the jets since if you damage them it can also change the fuel flow. Also, when removing the jets, be aware of any washers or spacers that may be in place when removing. Good luck

We put a jet kit from dynojet for a 2007 suzuki dr650 and the jets we got didnt fit so we emprovised and got the jet to the same diamiter as the one we got with the jet kit and now the motor runs and idles...

Sounds like its running too lean, you need to jet it richer or else you risk damaging the motor. Jetting is a painful tuning process and had to be done each time any change is made to the exhaust or intake.

When you run rich you loose power and create more smoke, when you run lean you are more efficient, slightly more power but runs too hot and causes damage.

What do people mean rejetting? rejetting what ur carb?

Re-jetting refers to changing the size of the jet (or jets) within the carb. The jets, for the most part, determine the air/fuel ratio entering the engine, Too small of jets the engine will run lean, run hot and may lack top-end power. Too rich and the engine may have low-end running problems, produce a bit of black smoke, waste fuel and may even foul the spark plug(s). Looking at your spark plugs can give you great in-site as to how the engine is running, rich, lean, burning oil...)
Please see the attached link for your use.

If you do need to replace the jets you'll need to remove the carb(s) and tear in to them abit; the jets themselves just screw in and out. Take care when handling, their brass and can be damaged easily.

I hope this may have assited you,

Air in faucets

The tree may have damaged a pipe,which is letting air into the system. I'm suprised you haven't mentioned a leak. It's possible for air to be pulled in thru the motor seal, if suction is high. High suction usually means trouble in the well, a clogged point or a malfunctioning check. Push on pipes and the pressure line to the switch, if they leak water out, air can be drawn in.
