Have you changed the spark plugs? If your plugs aren't firing correctly, this can cause the problem. If you have dirty carbs, this can also cause the problem as you will put too much air in and not enough gas.

  • Check to see that the choke is not partially on.
  • Drain the carbs and clean them with B12 chemtool or any other good carb cleaner. The main jets in the carbs are probably gummed up. To clean the carbs properly they will need to be removed from the bike. Be sure to balance and synchronize the carbs when reinstalling.
  • Remove and clean the petcock water trap and clean the trap of water and rust etc. If a filter screen is present clean it as well.
  • Set idle speed to factory specs. Do not use gas with Ethanol.
This should fix the bog problem.

Start with a new stock NGK spark plug. Check for spark. If spark then do the following > >
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. 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 of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and 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 two screws on the outside throat of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. Set the idle speed with the idle screw. This process should get you back on the road.

Why does my ATV bog down and die when I keep the throttle wide open?


If you are lucky, you might just need new fuel filter and the fuel bowl cleaned out, and maybe new air filter. If not so lucky you need carburetor rebuilt. Backfire is usaully caused by engine running too lean ( too much air for the amount of fuel present). Fuel bowls get gunk in them and the fuel needles and fuel jets get varnished up. The accelerator pump gets worn out gaskets and/or bellows and doesn't give the right amount of fuel mist when you accelerate.

Full Choke is indicative of a motor starved for fuel

Throttle bogs down like its starving for gas or air. plugs been changed new rebuilt motor and trans, carb taken off and gaskets cleaned what could cause my motorcycle to keep doing this


there is a coating in fuel tank these bits loosen and go into carbs and block all jets, if you havent done this and this fixes problem you best put an inline fuel filter on bike to stop debris going into carb, these filters are good for a thousand miles i would recommend a car on like they used to have on old minis they are £1.98 on ebay

Make sure the air box is installed and the snorkel is on the air box and that it's in good condition. They don't run well or sometimes at all beyond idle without the air box. Could also be a clogged main jet or otherwise dirty carburetor.

You may have a fuel issue the cheapest thing to do is a simple fuel filter replacement an old filter can cause backups in the gas line. Also check to make sure your air cleaner assembly is fully hooked up and no hoses or clamps are loose. less air cause these same symptoms.

Have a suzuki 900 rf 900 when you give it gas it bogs down then picks back up and runs good have checked the carbs and intakes look fine


Sounds like a lean condition. Particularly a transition from a lesser jet to the main jet in the carbs.
Depending on how severe the problem is it could be as simple as adjusting the the main jet needles and synchronizing the carbs and richening up the idle air screw a bit.
Remember that all general service basics should be checked before adjusting carbs. Valve clearence, spark plugs, air filter, cam chain tension, etc. should all be checked/ adjusted/ serviced/ replaced before adjusting a carb.
