problem in carb


Recommended Posts

the bike is a suzuki 87 ts250x and the problem is in the carb what happens is the bike will run great and then it will start to lack power then it gets harder to start it when it warm or cold. most of the time it feel like its flooding when you have to hold the throttle fully open to keep the bike going and when throttle is fully open the bike is only idling so that must mean that it is flooding when you half throttle the bike cuts out when you turn the peck cock off the bike the starts to run fine then it floods again then you the peck cock off it runs fine. the bike does not idle at all running properly or not. when you sit the bike on its stand (off) fuel comes out of the overflow pipe. to get the bike running properly you have to pull the carb out and give it a good proper clean out then it runs fine for a day then it does it all over again remember the bike is a suzuki 87 ts250x two stroke

im am about to fill up the tank with gun powder and blow it up:rant::banana:

Its the float needle. I can't remember is it had a steel tip or rubber, but if its rubber there is nothing you can do but replace it. If it is steel you can dress the tip up with some emery cloth, lay the cloth on the side of the tip and twist the needle with your fingers. Also make sure the pin in the needle moves up and down, old gas will stick the pin and will give you a false float hieght.

Part#1 is what holds the needle down and in place with the aid of the screw it also keeps the throttle cable from falling out accidentally. If We could get that carb model we could go directly to Sudco and figure out what you actually need.
