Mine is a 410JS 1000cc Santana, Spanish made. Mechanical fuel pump does bring no fuel to the carb. Want to shift to an electric setup. What is the best pump? Do I need an overflow-line?

The bike doesn't exist as written. https://www.google.com/search?q=410JS+1000cc+santana We are better with 'year make model 1000cc'. Better to not try and do better than the bike engineers. A mechanical pump runs when the engine is turning, an electric pump will run as soon as the key is turned and create pressure all the time. It would have to be an in tank electric pump or it will burn out. Electric pumps are cooled an lubricated by the fuel passing through it. If it is a carbureted engine, you are pressurizing the carb bowl. If injected, it may already have a fuel return. Check the mechanical pump for a torn diaphragm, they are easy to change. ..

Gray smoke is coming out of my muffler on my 2017 kymco agility 125.

Normally white smoke is water in the combustion chamber but this is air cooled so either too much fuel, incorrect fuel or burning oil can cause this.

Question edited for clarity and add maker. Try cleaning the Throttle Body. This bike works the same as a car.

2003 Honda VT 750 C2 Shadow carburetor adjustment

Let's focus on adjusting the air/fuel mixture. This adjustment can help balance the fuel-to-air ratio for both cylinders. Here are the steps you can follow: Idle Screw (Air/Fuel Mix): The idle screw, also known as the pilot screw, adjusts the air/fuel mixture at idle. It affects the fuel flow from the pilot jets (idle jets) into the carburetors. Locate the idle screw on your carburetor. It's usually a small black knob near the choke. Turn the idle screw to achieve the desired idle speed. Listen to how the bike sounds while adjusting it. Note: Adjusting the idle screw shouldn't significantly affect the mixture setting. Pilot Screw (Idle Mixture): The pilot screw (idle mixture screw) fine-tunes the air/fuel mixture from idle rpm up to about 1/8th throttle. To access the pilot screws, you may need to remove the air box and carb side cover. The factory default setting for the pilot screws is typically 2.5 turns out. Carefully screw each one in until it lightly seats closed, and then count the number of turns. You can adjust the pilot screws to make the mixture richer (more turns out) or leaner (less than 2.5 turns). Dual Carburetor Sync: Since your bike has dual carburetors, it's essential to ensure they are synchronized. Use a vacuum gauge set to synchronize the carbs. Adjust the linkage screw until both throttle butterflies are in the same position for idle2. Synchronization helps maintain consistent performance between the front and rear cylinders. Check Rear Cylinder Idle: If the rear cylinder isn't running correctly at idle, it could be due to a partially plugged idle jet. Consider cleaning the carburetors if needed. While it can be a bit of work, it's essential for proper performance. If the issue persists, consult a mechanic or consider opening up the carburetor for a thorough inspection. Remember to take your time and make gradual adjustments. If you're unsure, consult your bike's service manual or seek professional assistance.

Xv-bd707 won't start. it stands. "Please wait" in the window.

This is a combo unit. Confirm the disc is playable. The problem may not be in the machine. Check that the power plug is firmly inserted. I have provided links to manuals for the machine. If the troubleshooting therein fails, the remaining option appears to be contacting the manufacturer. Such details should be in the manuals.

My brother vuka xl 110 there is a small hole on the head .wish I can post a picture also to say what I am taking about .I want to know will oil spill out the hole that is in the casing of the head .

Yes, It will leak oil. How much will depend where the hole is. When the engine is running the oil is a pressurised system so it won't be supplying enough oil the the moving parts of the engine. Take a photo with your phone and there is a button on the bottom of the comment box. Use that to add photos. As a general rule If the cylinder head has ANY damage like holes and cracks Replace it. A cylinder head is cheaper than a replacement engine or a bike.

Were do the fuel lines go to on a mountop 150cc

This particular unit has a typical GY6-style engine with a fuel line designated from the gas tank to the carburetor distinguished by an in-line cylindrical fuel filter located near the center of the line. Best to locate the carburetor distinguished by the location of the air filter, there should be a hose going from that unit up into the gas tank. Ideally, remove the gas tank entirely and it should reveal the gasoline lines directly to the carburetor. The photo shows the fuel line/filter indicated in red, and the location of the carburetor within the blue indicator. carbfuellocation-undefined-undefined-0.png
