If you can upload a picture to Photobucket, or any other free hosting site, then grab the URL: www.photobucket.com/whatever/address/picture.jpg <--example then use the insert image button (just above where you type the message text)


I'll make a sticky in the next day or so!

PM sent, the feature you might need to click on is usually labeled "disable norton antivirus autoprotect" right click on the norton icon on the task bar, down by the clock, and you might be able to see it.

but you would want to turn it back on right after you install it.

Good Luck!

At the top of the screen you should get a message saying that adobe wants to install a program on your machine....You must accept to download.............

if it stalls when giving the gas then i would guess that the gas flow doesnt match up with the increased air flow
you can turn the air/fuel screw on the carb to help with takeoff but you most likely have a clogged pilot or main jet

MT-A2 Cag/Daytona, full fairing with a 47cc air-cooled two-stroker. Nice work on the fairings.

I'm going to assume you have the stock carburetor on the bike, so what you'll need to do is pull off the lower fairing so you can get to the engine. A lot of the problems with these bikes is the carburetor (like 90% of the time). Clean it until it shines, then put it back on the bike.

The float in the bottom of the carburetor is too low. What you have to do is pull the bowl off the carburetor, and tweak the float forks downwards a little - not too much, maybe 1/8" - then put the bowl back on.

What's happening is this: As fuel flows into the bowl, the float rises (duh, that's why it's called a "float," not a "sink" :p). The float pushes upwards against the float forks, which in turn push the float needle (on top of the forks) up into its slot, which seals off the flow of gas to the carburetor. If this float needle does not seat correctly or does not rise high enough, the carb leaks out of the overflow tube, and will continue to do so as long as the gas is turned on, eventually emptying your tank all over the garage floor.

Now, you said the bike idles just fine, but as soon as you give it gas, it quits? (I'm assuming you already know about putting the choke lever down to ride ....) That could be the sign of an air leak somewhere. Check all your bolts over carefully, and make sure they are right and tight.

Check our vendors in the supplier feedback section. Most of them sell carbs and other engine parts. You might also want to try Dave's Motors, but they might be sold out of all their parts already (they're not restocking, either, closing down their pb line.)

Spyguy, My bike is doing the same thing, only it will let you ride it can ride for about a min then it will bog and die, as if not getting gas. I just got both bikes running again today. Only think I touched on this bike is I installed nw pull start and also replace the factory exhaust with another factory exhaust. I was unable to find gasket so there is a small space between the exhaust and manifold. Could this be making the issue??. What else should I check? Starts up just fine, Rides at normal speed then will just shut off
