530 stalling at start up, ideas?

Recommended Posts

Having a little trouble with my 08 exc, its running for no more than 3 seconds before stalling. It cut out while riding and havent got it to run since. Im thinking its either fuel or spark, where would you look first....?

It since has fresh fuel, oils and filters (although havent checked the in tank fuel filter). Iridium plug <15 hrs.

 

Cheers

Need more info.
Is this upon cold starting? With choke circuit open?
What ambient temp?
Does it fire up while choked then stall after 3 sec?
Or ????
When did you last do any carb maintenance?
Gummy pilot needle,
Main needle
Stuck float.
Stuck throttle body

If it cut out while riding, could be you sucked dirt into carb and its stuck somewhere.
How was it acting before suddenly cutting out?
Running great?

It was running okay, rain at the time and quite muddy. 

Returning home removed the carb, cleaned it and visually it looked fine... I havent pulled it apart so yes it could be any of internal problems you listed.

Cold start with choke out, 20 deg C... and yep stalls within 3 seconds of starting.  Cheers
