Just got my 1972 Honda XL250 back up and running after a fresh cylinder, piston and rings. I replaced the intake gasket and have a new Chinese 1979 carb all hooked up. Bike usually starts first kick when cold but after I run it a little bit it will either shut down when getting low RPMs when taking off (like I stalled it but it just wants to die), or ill turn it off and go to kick it over 20 seconds later but it wont have it unless its been sitting a couple minutes or so. Choke or no choke, i usually take the plug out and its dry then put it back in and it fires right up. Carb issue? I have another little carb without a return cable but I like using the new one I bought because it has a return cable. I tried turning the carb air/fuel mixture screw a turn or two in both directions and running it like that but no difference, really. I did die on a mountain and took the plug out the other day and it seemed to maybe have a weak looking spark but it was sunny out and I wasnt sure. have at me!
Hi I'm Shelby, and new to the mechanic world. I just shimmed my valves, cleaned the carb, and rebuilt my water pump. Started it up and it fired up first kick. Ran for ten minutes and died. Wouldn't start for about ten min. Once I let it sit, it started back up and ran fine. Then died when it got got again. I checked the stator and it reads 17 ohms. The other wire read 240 ohms. What else could it be? Could the stator still be shorting out when hot? thanks for the help in advance!
