Well, that was interesting...
« on: January 11, 2019, 03:21:46 PM »

So I'm out for a ride today, taking in the twisties of northern NSW. I've been out for about an hour and a half, riding nice and hard. I get to a technical bit full of climbing sharp turns, and my bike sputters and dies. Won't start but still turns over. I call my lady love and she's on her way out to me. I put more oil in when she arrived, it shouldn't have been the issue as I changed the oil a few weeks ago. Anyway, it was cold by then and after I put the oil in I tried to start it. It started and ran with the choke out but dies with the choke in or when I gave it any throttle. It then died with the choke out so I called it a day and organised getting it home.

I'm going to take the ****er apart, obviously, but has anyone experienced this or something like it before who can point me in the right direction? I'm gonna dump the oil to see how much is actually in there, check the filter as well and maybe put that bloody metal ring back in. I'm gonna check the fuel lines, maybe empty the tank and check there's no crap in it that shouldn't be there. Then I guess I'll have a look at the carby? Anyway, that's the plan, any help and/or advice is always welcome.

But of a advice,
If you want help , keep it short and to the point.
Lost interest after 20 lines  ::)

So you go on a forum about a specific bike and lose interest after 20 lines? I'd hate to think what you must be like on the road. Feel free to piss off and keep unhelpful shit like that to yourself.

Also, Kiuvi599, it's obviously a gv250 carby model seeing as I've posted in the gv250 section and specifically mention looking at the carby.

Steller performance today folks.

The advice that you take the time to give when you can't take the time to read what I've written? Nah, that shit doesn't fly. Neither does the insinuation of some sort of pecking order based on how long one has been around the forum. And yeah, I'm an adult on a forum populated with adults, don't moderate my choice of words.

In other news, I've diagnosed and fixed the issue. I dumped the oil and checked the filter, it was all fine. I removed the tank and cleaned out the hoses, petcock, filter and pump. The filter was pretty clogged and once it was clean I cranked the starter to check the pump and all was fine so I reconnected the hoses and it fired right up. Happy days.

To those who've managed to get through 8 whole lines of text to get this far, I hope my experience is of help to you in the future. I figured that's what this forum is all about? Maybe I'm wrong...

Cruisa,  I am not qualified to help you with your issue, that you also solved by yourself. It is just that if you are looking for help with a bike it is best to list the full info of your model say 2017 GD250R as there is also a 2017 GD250N which are basically the same but there are some differences. Year also makes a difference as carb from one set of years could be different for another.

I think people are just looking to clarify. Glad you got your issue solved, and I know it is frustrating when you have an issue and want to get is solved quickly.

So as well as having a short attention span, you're also a 'get the last word in' kinda guy. Fine. Sure, I took your advice and very much care about your opinion of me...

Archaz, next time I'll list the specific year, but I think the model should be obvious from the section of the forum I post in. Yes, it was satisfying to solve my issue. Just a little disappointed from the responses I got from a forum that I thought was here so we could help each other.

G'day Cruisa,

It definitely does sound like it was leaning out, as evidenced by the choke.

Either not enough fuel, or too much air.

You've sorted the fuel, but have you had a look at the inlet manifold and other rubber hose bits? Nothing's popped loose, or split has it?

The whole assembly there is only clamped in place by the two rubber parts. Think about how heavy a carby and airbox assembly are. If you start riding through technical sections and you have lateral forces rocking the airbox side to side, plus you have a v-twin rocking things forwards and back, those rubber bits can fatigue and crack. Add a bit of fuel, a bit of rain, a sprinkle of pressure cleaning, some sun and some age ..let's face it, she's no spring chicken! Those rubber manifolds live a hard life.
