Hey guys I'm new to this forum, I've been trolling for about 2 months and just recently found a really nice GSR that was barely used: however I think it went through some slightly ignorantly owned days.
When I went to meet the guy who was selling immediately I knew two things 1: he didn't know anything about engines or mechanics (even less than I)! 2: he couldn't prime a carb and start an engine to save his life. Long story short bright or home it wasn't cranking for me I waited two days put a spark in it, new gas and bam fired right up.....
Rode it for about a couple days when all of a sudden it stopped working, I checked spark it was good, fuel seemed okay, no leaks and no vacuum leaks.
I couldn't figure it out..
So I give it a break for a few days and come back to it fresh I take it outside give the carb 2-3 bubble pumps, choke on it barks. Do it again it barks open choke I pull first try idles and runs smooth I drive it to work (3miles) I turn it off, 20 minutes later I got to public on it for produce.. rides fine..
I get off work 6 hours late and I got to pick it up
I notice a few things
There's some gas that leaked into the air filter and some at the exhaust. I thought maybe hey somebody knocked it over and Munich gas cap wasn't on all the way..
I go outside to try and start her up and nothing... I tried for 1 hour and nothing.. not a single start up ..
I got home and played with it the next day, I took it outside and did the usual and I got it to start up with choke on with a decent idle, however whenever I opened the choke even a hair it would die!
I played some more and got more of a healthier response for on the engine I finally got it idling on open choke it was slightly unsteady and then it stabilized. However even running with choke open and idling when I give the throttle some juice it will try to stay alive for a second and die out.
At this point if I start with the choke open it will idle fine and I can flutter the gas and it gets power but if I try to open the throttle up any significant amount it will die..
Also I've done this process now for about 3 days, and sometimes when I run it trying to get it to ride or idle on open choke I notice after it sits it will leak gas from both the exhaust port at end of gram and some from the air box. (((
I've been googling up and down and I know on the gz25n23 has a non timetable carb, also that the "seat" and or "needle" is faulty or stuck or carb and jets are dirty that I would need to replace or clean carb?
Before I buy a carb kit or new carb can someone please give me some insight I would love and appreciate the kind gesture.. I will try and upload videos tomorrow I just got off work and it's midnight right now!
Thank you so much for reading and helping!!
