    Default Had some spare time today so...

    I have some downtime while I am awaiting the delivery of my gear case seal kit, so I pulled out the dirt bike. Last time I cleaned the carb, it took me about 4 hours. I took it off and cleaned and reinstalled it in about 30 minutes this time. Anyways, I got it to run good once after fooling with the choke etc. I had it running good for about 15 seconds then I shut it off to adjust the idle. After doing that, I could only get it to start for about a second and then die. I played with the idle screw and put it in every possible tension level and still couldn't get it started. Any of y'all have suggestions? Atleast there is hope this time...

    Maybe you moved some trash that you missed while you had it apart! That could cause your problem,maybe starving for gas!Or float stuck closed!

    I was also thinking that it wasn't getting too much gas.

    Pull it apart and check the float needle valve. I had a generator last week do that to me and it took a carb kit to fix. The ethanol ate up the rubber on the end of the needle and it was sticking closed.

    Fresh gas or old gas?

    Pulled it apart again. The float needle rubber seemed to look good. There was gas in the bowl, but the float wasn't wet. The spark plug wasn't wet either, any suggestions?
