2002 Honda 400ex No Start

Recommended Posts

I got a 400ex and It wants to start but won't it has a hicup and I've tried changing the Jets and it just does the same thing. The timing is correct. I've tried roll starting it and it starts for a few seconds and the just dies. Does anyone have a idea what the problem is?

How old is the gas. Plug color wet/dry. Tap on float bowl stuck float. Gas not going to carb clean filter, Check flow from tank valve by pulling hose. Clean air filter. Air screw 1 1/2 out then adjust fuel screw. My guess its not getting gas check that first. Just happened to me and took right off! Its almost always something simple! good luck!

Put some fuel in the air intake and crank it over. It it starts running you know it's a carb issue. take the spark plug up and check for spark. It may only spark every other time. Good luck!

      Ok so just picked up an 02 ds 650 and the guy said he couldn't get it to start. He had a shop put new shims in it and I had them checked and they were ok now things I've done is new plugs even though guy had just put new plugs in it.. got new carb 42mm just like the one that was on it.. bought new intake manifold because the one that was on it someone got way to tweaked out and ported the shit out of it excuse my language but yeah so installed new intake manifold and it just won't start like its not getting enough fuel.  Timing seems to be right it does fire every now and again but just barely.. did a compression test today and it was at 90psi.. i know thats low but don't know where I'm losing compression.. valves we at .06 and .07 when checked im lost ive tried everything I know and can't figure it out
