SOURCE: I have a Echo chainsaw model 452Vl and am not able to start it.

Hi, It does have a filter of sorts but is on the pickup inside the tank and should not need changed. Drain the fuel mixture and check all of the plastic lines and primer bulb for cracks or kinks. Put in a fresh fuel mixture that has not been sitting, (They don't run on old mix) and try starting again. The thought process is that if it starts on the starting fluid it can only be two things, old fuel or no fuel. If the fuel change doesn't work it is probably not getting fuel thru the carb, these oil mixes gum up rather quickly and if it sat for awhile with fuel in it it may need the carb cleaned. Good Luck to you, hope this Fixsya!

SOURCE: carbs were removed and cleaned. now starts hard and does not idle

sounds like carbs not cleaned right, oh try changing fuel filter, does fuel pump run constantly. if you cant hear it you can feel it, up behind the ignition. Berrymans B12 fuel additive works wonders. double dose add to gas run bike til hot then let stand overnight, pray a lot and try it again.
here is a free pdf service manual too

SOURCE: zzr 600 carb probs

The fuel tanks are common to rust through, maybe that is where the dirt is from.

SOURCE: wont start, not getting fuel, checked lines,carb and used starter fluid, runs but won't continue to run

You may need to do a more detailed cleaning on the carburetor. I like to use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to get into the small ports. They work great for this job. You may also need to check the small screen in carb. It gets blocked with debris.If you need further assistance, please contact me.

70psi compression indicates it's rebuild time; the compression should be double that. You can confirm what the compression should be with good rings by putting a few drops of oil in the spark plug hole and testing compression "wet". That figure will be what a new saw would have.

I put a new fuel pump on my 90 cbr 600, when I start it up it flows fuel out of a hose on the far left carb, and all over the motor, is it supplying too much fuel?

Sounds like a stuck float on the left carb. Try tapping the carb bowl while the gas is running through. carbs probably need cleaning.

2001 kawasaki zx-7s won't start cleaned carb replaced hoses it started up after all this but now a week later the bike won't start and there is no leaks

Try this; in the event of a crash(or removing carbs) there is a magnetic charge that closes the needle valve preventing fuel flow. You may have to demagnetize the carb by grounding the frame. Usually, you can do this by running a wire from the carb to earth. Hope this helps.

1990 zx 7 sat for years. now cleaned everything out and I am getting gas in my oil? Any suggestions?

Sounds like the float in the carb(s) is stuck. This will allow extra gas into the carb bowl and the excess gas with flow into the cylinders and past the rings, into the crankcase. You will need to reset the float(s) to the proper level.

Bike sputters with no throtle when trying to start. If any throtle or choke is used bike will not sputter at all. If starting fluid is used bike will start. I've changed plugs ,new gas and cleaned air...

Check/replace inline fuel filter. Put a fuel injector/carb cleaner fluid in the tank and run it through, this will clean any build up that may be in carbs/injectors.
If problem is still persisting then you'll need to get carbs/injectors removed for cleaning and resetting. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

2000 zx 600 wont start after being stood 4 seven months had battery checked drained petrol it turns over but wont fire

Try this: remove your air-filter (prob. located under seat) and spray starter fluid in there. This should start it up and might clean out the problem. Make sure all gas lines are turned on as well. Sometimes after motors sit too long the mechanical parts tend to build up a thin layer of film and rust which causes them parts to stick or clog tiny air/fuel holes. If you can get it started with the starting fluid the motor self lubricants and the suction the bike creates might pull the rest of the debris threw and spit it out your exhaust.
Give me a thumbs up if this helps ya thanks!

Bike left standing for 6 months won't start

Hi, Sitting not good ! That is why the petcock has an off position. Spray some starter fluid or some fuel in the carb intakes and see if cranks, If it does, the carbs have to be disassembled and cleaned. Good Luck to you!
