Question about Honda Electrical Supplies
Generator has spark and fuel fills float bowl but won't meter to passages after cleaning carb
After reading about Honda's Eco Throttle system available on inverter generators it seems it is not a fuel metering system but a computer controlled speed regulator or basically an electronic throttle.
Because the engine of an inverter generator doesn't need to run at a constant high speed to produce the correct 50 or 60 Hz output this generator can run at slower speeds when the load is light. The electronic throttle is the means to make it happen - operated by the computer.
The throttle is probably operated by a stepper motor and the power supplied to it likely to be in digital form. I suggest you try and gain a more full account of how the system works before you delve deeper.

Can anyone help me with the eco-trottle switch when I switch it on it seems to run the same idle whether I have it off or on, what could be causing it not to work, is it a bad switch or I am running 89 octane could that be the problem.

Either the intake valve is not sealing like it should, or the rings are worn, and crankcase vent is dumping the pressure into the carburetor.

SOURCE: i have no fuel at
Make sure you have flow from the tank to the carburetor. Also, when you cleaned the carburetor, there are several jets that have to be open in order for the fuel to "flow" through the carburetor. The carburetor on this generator has a pilot jet located on the top side of the carburetor and a main metering jet that screws into the very bottom of the carburetor and will be visible when the bowl is removed. After the main jet is removed there is a main nozzle that also has holes in it that have to be open also.
Another problem that is possible is compression. If the engine does not have sufficient compression it will not "pull" the fuel into the combustion chamber on the intake stroke. Hope this helps to get you in the right direction.
