    Hi guys, after trying to attempt to tackle this problem on my own I can't seem to get an idea where to start. The bike is a 79 gs850. My bike used to idle well before I encountered an electrical problem(If you read my last problem you'll know). This electrical problem required me to take the...

    Hello! 2014 Kawasaki Ninja 300 ABS, when accelerating everything is smooth and sounds sexy. No issues when flooring it. When holding a steady speed the engine sounds like brrrnrnrnrnrnnrnrnrrnrnrnr, like the throttle quickly kicking on and off, rather than a nice constant brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

    Hi my 750 sort of hesitates if I give it the full throttle like when I'm trying to pass a car. Say my throttle subjectively would says 70 mph, well for 2-3 seconds my bike says "Let's just stay here at 60". It protests and barks, "I'm staying right here". Then it breaks through and is fine...

    I have a Suzuki RMX 50. I was riding it today, then my brother asked if he could sit on it with me. So we did. We were driving for about 2 minutes, when the bike suddenly startet to drive by it self, i had no controll except from the clutch and brakes. it scared the **** out of us. We decided to...

    I'm riding a 2008 Suzuki Boulevard C50 and recently had some issues on the highway. When going above ~50mph the bike will occasionally lose power (throttle down) and then sporadically kick back in. When it's throttling down it doesn't respond at all to my throttling unless I release it...

    I have a Kawasaki ZZR600 and i've been having some carburetor issues with it. It sat for about 3 years and I decided to restore it. After giving it a carb cleaning it starts and idles, but dies when I take of the choke. Also, it stutters for a bit when i give it throttle, and to top things off...

    Hi all! I couldn't find any other thread that really reflects the issue I am experiencing. So, here goes. I have a small 125cc, 2 cylinder motorbike. Lately, I've had issues with the throttle. - Bike starts fine, no problem. - When the bike is running, and I apply just a little throttle...

    Hello, I own CBF1000 and i seem to have a problem (it was pinpointed at service) that Throttle position sensor is faulty (motorcycle stutters when revs are at some level - between 2k - 2.2k). But, the problem is that the original TPS (Keihin) is no where to be found and service which identified...

    Hey guys, I'm a brand new rider. I got a used 2007 Kawasaki Ninja 250r the a couple of weeks ago and literally went on my first ride yesterday. I have another thread on how I fell and dropped the bike on a turn in another forum so I'll save that for there but this is related... My issue is I'm...

    Recently bought a 1980 Honda CM400T which is in working order apart from this issue. When I give it a little throttle slowly and build it up I can run fine, but if I open the throttle quickly, for example, quick acceleration, it just bogs down and sputters as well as some backfiring and smoke...

    So I don't know what the problem is with my bike. The carbs have been cleaned and so I don't think that should be the problem. When I turn on my bike and just sit on it, no throttle application, no changing in choke, nothing. The bike revs it self pretty high. Not to redline but it gets up...

    So I took a bad fall on my 2007 yamaha v-star 1300 yesterday. I was riding down a back road at 25, it has been raining here in Vegas for a couple days and i didn't see the gravel in the road, and by the time I did I was already on it and lost all traction, my bike went out from under me and slid...

    I was at work the other day and when I came out I found my cbr 600 had been hit by a car into another car. The mirror had been broken off and the throttle grip, bent. I attempted to take it home but something obviously was wrong. It felt like the gas was not being fed through the engine right...

    This here beauty is a 1978 XL175. It is in need of some rebuilding and i was hoping you might be able to help me with a problem. For a while it was starting but would only idol with the choke on. If i shut the choke of it would stall and if i hit the throttle to much it would stall. I clean out...

    Hi all. ******* here. I just recently replaced the carb on my 78 twinstar CM185 with an ever so slightly different one. Since then, the throttle has had so much slack in the cable that if I were to twist it all the way out, I can twist it back about a quarter turn before theres even any...

    I just recently bought a GL500 and have been fixing it up. It is almost ready to go, but there are a few remaining problems. First, whenever you roll on the throttle, the grip does not spring back as it should. I don't want to start riding it if the throttle could potentially stay at a high...

    Hi Everyone, First time poster, first time biker. I've had my bike for about 6 months now. All of a sudden it lacks almost all acceleration. starts up just fine, but even in first gear, I can't pull away with any sort of acceleration beyond piddling forward. I can't get past 30mph in any...
  20. First Bike / New Rider
    I'm a new rider (only a few months) and I bought a 2001 Ninja 250 to learn on. I rode it for a month before this started to happen. The bike will only start with the choke on. When you roll the choke off, it dies. When you roll the throttle, it dies. It idles fine, around 1800 rpm with the...
