The hose coming out of fuel cap going into steering column is just a vent hose. the fuel hose will be on side bottom of tank where the fuel on/off/reserve switch is fuel line comes off this valve down to carburetor. the fuel bowl also has a vent hose that hangs down below engine so if float stick fuel can run out and not on hot engine. makle sure the fuel bowl is getting gas in it try tapping on bowl lightly with a screwdriver handle if float is hung this may drop it down

If gas is leaking from the tube on bottom of carburetor, the needle valve is worn inside the float bowl on the carburetor. You should also check to make sure there isn't gas in the oil and in the air box before starting and running your ATV. Let me know if you need any more help, Daniel.

Honda CB250 will not start. It will turn over and there is fire on the plugs and when I look at the plugs after trying, they are "wet" with fuel. What am I missing?


Valve clearance or camshaft timing. If you have no clearance on the intake valves at top dead center, then you will have no compression = no start.

Need to see the carburetor diagram for a 2000- wont start


I could not locate a diagram of your machine's carburetor. I can tell you, for certain, that the carb does have a rubber drain tube that goes from the bottom of the float bowl and vents to atmosphere beneath the vehicle.
There are three required ingredients required for combustion: fuel, compression, and a spark (at the right time). Try to find out which of these are missing. Loosen the drain screw on the float bowl. Is fuel present? Check the compression - you've got to see at least 140 psi for anything to happen. Pull the spark plug and crank the engine. Is there a spark?
If it has sat for an extended period of time (more than just a couple of months) then the carburetor will be plugged with fuel varnish. It is very easy to think you've got everything cleaned, when the jets are still plugged up. I would take the carb apart and remove the jets. Hold them up to a light source and look through each one. If you can't see through them, there's the problem.

Honda cr125 idle issues, wont idle not sure whats going on????


ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side or a plug on the bottom of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw/plug then replace it after the fuel drains. Remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well. The diagram below depicts the problem area. The bike will idle properly once the pilot jet and related passageways are cleared.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine.

Can you help me?


It sounds like condensation in the gas tank has reached a point where water in the gas is a problem.

Drain the carburetors. There should be a screw on the lower side or bottom of each carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, (not all bikes have a water trap bowl). Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carbs to fill with gas. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetors from the engine.

FOR EACH carb > Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Put the carb back together and install. Clean or replace the air filter and install an in-line fuel filter. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road. ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher at hand when working on carburetors.

Fuel Leak from the Carburetor

carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
