Problems with my PC
Written by goldwingman40 on 7/13/2010 at 06:49 pm

Bravo,
Siphon all the old gas out of the tank that you can and then put in about 2
gallons of fresh gas and 3 ounces of Chevron Techron. Then start the bike and
let it idle for 5 or 10 minutes and then set overnight. The next day start it
and try and slowly give it some throttle. If it takes it go out and ride it, not
where there is heavy traffic, and run the gas down. Then fill up and add 3
ounces more of Techron and ride it again. If it didn't take the throttle let it
idle again for 10 minutes and set overnight. Then try again. MAKE sure you get
GOOD gas, Shell, Texaco, Exon, from a station that sells a lot of gas. You
didn't say how long the bike set. Mine had been apart for 1 1/2 years and it
just worked before I went to the Deal's Gap weekend.
It ran great a couple of runs, 180 miles, thru the local twisties and the 150
miles of twisties getting to Bryson City. Friday night after dinner I needed gas
for the Saturday ride and the Shell by the motel was having computer pump
problems in the afternoon so I went to the BP down the road and got some bad
gas. Saturday morning the bike wanted to miss and pop and low idle. We filally
ran out half a tank and stopped at a Shell near Telico, TN before lunch and
filled up and it started running better. I filled again at the Shell in Bryson
City after Saturday dinner and it ran good all the way home on Sunday. That is
the first time I have gotten bad gas in one of my bikes in 30 years. That is why
I say good gas at a station that sells a lot of gas.
Fred

    I'm not one of the guys that know it all, but I know that the ones that do will tell you the carbs are gunked up from sitting unused for a long period of time. The gas evaporates and leaves a varnish like gunk behind that plugs the jets up. Y

    Sounds like a really bad vacuum leak. Check the Carb boots and that the airbox is sealing tightly. CV carbs rely on the vacuum to operate correctly. --- In

    Had the same problem years ago. It was the main jets in the carbs were plugged up. pop the float bowls off and clean the jets with compressed air and carb cleaner. Do not push anything through them such as a wire. Ed --- In

    Hello, The choke needles are vulnerable to getting stuck under cold and wet conditions. Check also the load of the battery. Motorbikes will run bad without charge or stop after a few miles. I can imagine, without anything changing over time,

        Even though you emptied the tank, I doubt that ALL of the old gas is out of the system - yet. With the PC, I would start at the cheap end and work up. I doubt you will have to replace the carbs - probably just a good cleaning. Check all t

          I hope nobody has mentioned this yet (I didn't read all the posts...sorry). Replace the fuel filter! It's a $21 part at the Honda dealer, is relatively easy to change if you've got nimble fingers, and requires NO tupperware to be removed. My

            The fuel tank can be completely drained if you remove the hose that runs from the bottom of the tank. It sounds like your old gasoline was well on its way to become varnish so you may have to remove the carbs and do a thorough cleaning. Varn

          Bravo, You will find varnish deposits in (and you will have to remove and clean): Fuel tank Fuel Filter Fuel Lines Carburetor bowls and jets The worst part will be removing the fuel tank, because it is buried in there.

        Calm Down! No new carbs needed, just a good going through. I think with my limited mechanical knowledge even I could handle it. You should be ashamed for letting your "crown jewel" sit for so long, Ya gotta ride'm at least a little

        Bravo, The bike set formost of 20 years, what is the rush unless you juse want to tear it apart. Let it set with the Techron in it and start it and run it 5 or 10 minutes to warm it up and try to bring the rpm's up and then let it set each da
