This is as simple as it gets. If the carb has not

been rebuilt in the past 2 or 3 years it will need to be rebuilt or

replaced. The average life of the diaphragms is about 2 to 3 years,

If your carb has limiters which will only allow the adjustment

screws to turn about 1/2 turn, you will likely not get any relief from

adjusting the carb. You will have to take the unit to a local dealer

for help. Most likely you will need to replace or rebuild the carb.
If you can not find help in your area try Southern

Supply Co. Their number is 205-833-2525 and they have anything

you will need for Homelite products and they will ship anywhere.

Ask for Jason. I hope this helps.

I need to rev the throttle to prevent the engine from stalling.


Try checking these two things: idle adjustment (usually milled screw on the carburettor) or there could be a problem with the governor - this is usually a plate that is driven by the airflow from the cooling fan, check that this moves freely (usually a shaft from the cooling fan on to the carburettor butterfly valve), if this is not free, then the engine will only run on idle, will not reach running speed, garden debris can cause it to jam...

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.

Time for carb cleaning , blow the jets with compressed air,check the float level.
Check the spark plug and replace if neccessary.
Check the air filter too, and if you don't have an 'inline' filter for your fuel line,install one.
Basically yr bike's engine needs a tune up...check the valve clearance too!
Hope this helps!

Starts on choke but dies when moved off choke


If it will start on choke and die when choke is taken off...the carb needs to be taken off and cleaned. The main jet in the carb is probably clogged.
