We had big problems with the Kawasaki engine doing this, the early engine has an external vented carb, you can try extening the pipe from the carb and get it away from the draught from the flywheel, the later engine has an internally vented carb which cured this issue, the carb is retro fittable but expensive, it was offered as a re build kit when fitted to Husqvarna tractors, try taking it up with Kawasaki.
Most likely your battery has gone bad. Remember to take it with you when you go to get the new one, for two reasons. First reason is to get the right pole orientation for drop in replacement. Second reason is to get the core exchange to knock a couple bucks off the cost.
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. I looked up the Model HF2216 via US Honda power sites and did not come up with a manual. If you would state your geographic (not home address) location and the engine number off of the engine. U know this is a V-twin but not sure of the Hp rating and need the engine number for service manaul data. What your describing sounds like an automatic choke that needs adjusted. Pass me the engine number and I will get you the data.
That is generally called hunting and is caused by the governor or the carburator. Try adjusting the carb first. You will see 3 screws to adjust. The one at the top is the idle speed adjust and there should be a high speed mixture screw and idle mixture screw further down about half way down the carb. They are marked with a L and H stamped next to each one. Adjust by remembering where you start from and using 1/8 turn increments at a time. Start with the H screw by turning counterclockwise a few times and listen for any changes. Now try clockwise a few times. You can also try the low mixture screw in the same way. Try the 2 at the same time. Remember your starting point at all times. If you try this and can't stop the surging. It is either the governor or the carb has to be cleaned. I will not try and describe the governor adjustments because it is difficult to put into words. I hope this helps you a little bit. Best regards and good luck.
Hi..my name is Keith..and it could be several things..that your carb needs cleaning..the fuel pick-up tube needs cleaning..if you have no spark..it could be the coil..it could also sheered the key in the flywheel and this will throw off the timing..i hope these suggestions will help
