kids atc70 will not run without coke on

engine just got rebuilt, new piston rings, carb, valves checked, timing checked, points new

anyways the engine will run strong without the choke only over 1/2 throttle.

the engine will not run up from idle unless the choke is on!

is this the idle or slow jet, i've tried different needle clip positions without much success

any thoughts on this problem?

pilot jet is plugged.

clean the carb throughly, the same problem persists!

the pilot jet is what? the screw with the spring right? if so when running that adjustment has no effect when turned.

when the engine is warm it idles but from 1/8 to 3/4 it will bog, seems like a lean bog cause it runs fine with the choke on, it also idles fine with the choke on

i dont understand this? its a new stock oem carb for this model

double checked the valves and timing and points gap all checked good, the only thing i cant check is the compression but its a new piston ring, seems to have great compression!

also, just cuaght my mind would changing the stock airfilter system to a k&n type, maybe less restrictive cause this?

Check the pilot jet by holding it to the light. It must be a clear crisp hole, blurry light will not work!

the pilot jet hole is clear, just to see if i needed a bigger pilot jet i ran a larger mig wire threw opening the hole, but it was to much, it now runs without choke on but is running very rich in the areas specified, i guess i going to buy some larger pilot jets, larger than stock that is!

the only thing that could of cause this is the less restrictive aftermarket air filter, i guess smaller engines can be very sensitive

i have the same problem let me know what jet size you end up with

      A tiny clear rubber tube on bottom of carb.  On bottom sort of on side, by floats, the other end just hanging down.  Was it always like this? Or does the other end go somewhere?  Today after multiple trys with kick, choke on/off ,,,fuel keeps pouring out the tube.  This bike has always been hard to start.   Thanx  guys!

      New spark plug, new air filter. Went for a ride and all was good. Hadn't run it in a week and a half. Now it won't start. Getting spark. The plug is dry. Is it possible I over oiled the filter and it has somehow gummed up the carb/ float? Thanks

      My 01' yz125 seems to be requiring a large amount of throttle to get off the line. I've ridden plenty of properly jetted 125's and none required quite so much throttle work from a dead stop. Even slipping the clutch it wont get going without a pretty healthy amount of throttle. Thinking it just needs a clutch rebuild kit and maybe a basket. Any info appreciated!
      If it helps any here is what it has done.
      FMF Fatty, VForce 3 reeds, and an iridium plug.

      Hey all, I just bought a street legal 2005 WR250F. Took it out once three weeks ago. Did about 60 miles on the dirt and 15 on the road, bike ran great. I took it out this past Sunday and was about 75 miles into my ride when the battery died. The battery is cheap, but it is brand new and was on a battery maintainer the whole time while it sat in the garage. I kick started it, and it fired right up. I was on the road for about 5-10 miles in fifth gear when I felt the bike slow down a little bit, and I noticed the sound coming from the bike sounded a bit deeper than usual. About a half mile later the bike started to bog down like it was out of gas. I filled the tank back up and experienced the same problem. The bike began to bog down, then puttered out like it was out of gas. Eventually the battery completely died and I was not even able to kick start it. I trailored it home, hooked it up to the maintainer, waited a couple hours, and the bike fired right up with the electric starter and the choke out. However, it was still puttering a lot when it was idling at this time. If anyone knows whats up, I would appreciate any and all help. Thank you. #Yamaha#wr250f

      I’ve got an old barn find ‘83 CR80R that needs either a new carb or a rebuild kit. I haven’t been able to find either anywhere. 
      Does anyone know where I can find either?
      housing, bowl and all the hard parts seem fine, if I can find a rebuild kit with a new float I think I’ll be ok. Right now it runs but only when I leave the choke on, smokes heavily and likes to bog down on takeoff
