Poor Running 305 ?

Recommended Posts

HELP! I i've just bought, what I think is a 305, but really not sure and don't know how to tell.

The problem is that it starts on choke but the runs erratically, revs quite high and then cuts out unless I can give it a bit of choke. I't's been stood a few years. Can anyone help? Does anyone know how many 'turns out' the slow running screw should be? Any ideas??

Have you given the carb a good clean out. With it being stood a while the chances are the pilot jet has been blocked up by the fuel going off.

This a common problem and once cleaned out the bike should run somewhere near. Screw should be around 2 turns out.

Good luck.

Carb is clogged the only reason it runs on choke is that its letting fuel in to the carb. Clean the carb and change fuel line, I had black hose do that exact thing on a 305.
