Adjust your idle speed up a bit. There will be a small adjustment screw on the carburetor, turn it clockwise a bit until the idle speed is good. If that does not work you could have a plugged idle circuit passage.

You need to get to the idle screw on your carb and srew it in until your idle raises up a bit, also put some Techroline (chevron) in your gas tank...1/2 bottle in Full tank.....Good luck to you friend....Tim

SOURCE: quad bike keeps cutting out


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 may 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. 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 idle screw and the air screw 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 adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. 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. This process should get you back on the road.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: I HAVE A 55 RANCHER CHAINSAW, IT STARTS GREAT,

Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the chain/bar is properly lubricated, sharpened, and tension adjusted. If no help, turn the H jet screw CCW a little so that the engine 4-strokes at speed unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. This will give the most power and least heat. Hope this helps!

just guessing that you have already changed the spark plug??!! Handlebar on/off switch in the on position? (yes, I have seen this come to the shop). After this you need a shop manual to check wiring connections, resistance values..etc.. if not... might be shop time.

Cutting out


Hi Thomas only thing I can think of is that its not getting enough air is it the right filter as it may be not be allowing enough air through. As you probably know if you don't get the right amount of fuel & air it won't run right. Hope it helps cheers Paul

My kawasaki brute force 750 was running great all winter with no problems,except for the odd tough time starting due too weather condition. But my problem all started this morning, everything seems normal...


Hey Belbowski,
Has it been sitting for a while?? Sounds like it could be several things..
1. The needle and seat in the carb may be dirty/clogged/sticking and not allowing a full flow of fuel into the float bowl.. when the bowl fills, it will run fine for about 20 - 45 seconds then "run out of gas.. it will restart and repeat this over and over.
2. The petcock/fuel tank may be stopped up/clogged/blocked and not allowing a full flow of fuel to the carb... causing the same symptoms as #1.
3. ..maybe..you may have a vacuum leak causing the fuel pump to not pump enough fuel to the carb. = Symptoms #1
4. Fuel pump might be bad. = Symptoms #1
Once you eliminate these items... repost with results.
