Crf80 wont rev out

Recommended Posts

Having problems with the carb on my daughters crf80. It will start and can eventually get it to idle but give it a rev and it dies when the revs come back down instead of idling. Also it won't rev out.

At first at half throttle it would rev right out but any more or less throttle and it would rev not far above idle and sound shit. We raised and lowered the clip on the fuel needle and each time it ran worse so we put it back to the centre groove. All jets are clear and no dirt in carby. Float level is what I'm hoping is the problem.

At first the fuel would piss out the overflow. So I bent the flap and no fuel came out. We then got it so fuel dribbled out but still having same problems. How quick should the fuel come out?

Bike has a new plug and clean fuel and new stator and cdi. Plenty of spark. Air filter is clean. Played with the fuel mixture screw and it didn't change a thing.

Will note the bike ran fine before putting on the new stator, cdi and carby. Could the timing possibly be out as the stator originally on it had 3 wires with 2 of the wires joining near the one of the plugs but the new stator has all 3 wires seperate and one of them not plugged in as there is now where to plug it in.

No fuel should come out of the drain hoses unless the bike is tilted quite far. The floats are designed to let in fuel depending on the current float bowl fuel level so it has to be set correctly to work. Go into your manual and set the float hight to stock. Jetting and the airscrew settings are best not to just play with. Start with your stock jetting or baseline for your riding conditions/ altitude, and go from there. The air screw should be set for highest idle while still retaining optimum throttle response. Although this cannot be properly set unless your internal carb jetting is correct first.

Its not responsive at all. Played with the float height today and it didnt change a thing. If it was running fine before and all i did was change the carby, stator and coil lead surely it cant b anything else
