Your floats in the carb are stuck. Take the float bowl off and clean the floats with a carb cleaner, it may also require an overnight soaking in a solvent, parts cleaner, or degreaser. Depending on the condition, they may need to be replaced.

Uniden phone cant answer


Unplug the phone from the 110-AC source for maybe 30 seconds, then plug-in to let it boot up again. FYI, your land line becomes useless with cordless phones when the 110-AC power goes out. Advice you keep an old-school corded phone handy nearby to plug into the RJ-11 phone jack as a backup when household power goes out. The RJ-11 wiring includes power, which provides voltage power to old-school corded telephones. You can procure old-school corded phones really cheap from your neighborhood thrift stores.

I have a 92 fat boy and the relay is clicking under the seat but no starter. was able two jump start it by pushing it down the street and popping the clutch in 2nd gear


Solenoid. Starter motor won't turn until the solenoid has fully extended the bendix into the starter ring on the clutch hub.

Of course, you could just always park on a hill :) Old school solution - will extend your battery life!

Good luck.

MY SNOWMOBILE(SKI DOO TUNDRA LATE 80'S/EARLY 90'S MODEL) WAS WORKING GREAT BUT THEN GAVE OUT..AM ABLE TO START IT FINE BUT IT STOPS AS IF IT'S OUT OF GAS..THE FUEL LINE FROM THE PRIMER WORKS FINE..I...


I had a similar problem, my '89 Tundra would only run if the primer was being pumped. Turned out a piece of dirt was caught in the carb's needle valve. Check/clean your carburator. Disassemble it and blow aerosol carb cleaner through all the passages. Before removing any valves and jet screws, turn the screws in until they are first snug (while counting exactly how many turns it took to tighten them) so that when you reassemble it, you can turn them in all the way again and then back them off the right amount to get the same carb settings that you had before disassembly --- you need to count them right or it might not run nicely and could even blow a piston. This is not a hard job at all, just make sure you have something to dump the gas in that will spill out of the carb's bottom bowl.
Good luck

Can't figure it out !!!!


Hi,

There are 2 major requirement for a gasoline engine to fire, fuel and ignition. Since you have spark, then ignition is the least likely problem. No fuel could be verified by removing the air cleaner and pouring a small amount of fuel down the throat, start the bike, if it start and runs (even for just a moment), you have verified the fuel problem.

Problems then could be traced along the fuel flow from the ank all the way to the carburator. In some instances of run out of fuel, the bike will have a hard time starting due to:
1. air bubbles in the fuel lines;
2. valve in carb stuck in close position;
3. flooding of both carb and intakes;
4. (in some cases) vacuum insifficient to open petcock or fuel valve/switch.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi again,

Any development(s) with your carbs?

Map sensor


Hi,

Have not worked on an HD but my thoughts and additional guesses would be:
1. fuel contamination (water at bottom of tank);
2. primary pump (in my case it was inside the fuel tank & might not be present in your bike);
3. fuel lines & clamps to & from primary pump or to the carbs;
4. in line filters;
5. vacuum controlled fuel valve (oppose to the usual manual petcock)
6. if it were the MAP sensor, bike wouldn't even run a block away + idling would be rough;
7. by chance are you using a Power Commander?

Also your post "bike will start and run fine for a few blocks then die" indicates that indeed fuel got into the carbs before but not when running meaning the bike used what was inside the bowl and was not replenished.  Alternately, the fuel flow to the carbs might not be sufficient and there is a leak or a blockage somewhere.

As said might not work for your bike but has come across some of the above on numerous occasions.

Good luck and Kind regards.

Ride Safe.
