Head gasket.

My head gasket appears to be leaking oil. Will this cause the engine /exhaust to pop when shutting off when running at low or high speed ?

Re: Running rich.

Further down the line........ the bike is still running rich. I thought the bike shop had sorted the problem , but only eased it. When running slow in hot weather the bike starts to die and I have to rev it hard to keep going. Everything has been checked, I think. Everything in the carb is standard,...

Re: Running rich.

Well that's it. Just took the dog into a main dealers to get sorted out. The bike ran great all the way, without missing a beat. It was like nothing was wrong.I don't like main dealer prices but it needs to be done.

Re: Running rich.

Thanks Ronald,
I have checked what you have said. The TPS R2 readings are higher than stated in the manual and out of the specified range, but I do not get a fault on the self diagnosis on ignition turn on. Cheers.

Re: Running rich.

Cheers Ronald,
both carbs are running rich. As for the float tabs, I am pretty sure that the tabs have not been bent. I tried a second set of carbs and the result is the same. I really don't know what else to try, so I will be taking it to a Yamaha mechanic. Thanks.

Running rich.

I gave my Honda carbs a makeover and decided to give the Bulldog carbs a clean. After reassembly and a test drive after 20 minutes the dog was not responsive from standstill. It was putting out black smoke and I had to rev hard to make it move, at high speeds it seemed ok. On taking out the plugs th...

Re: Starting problem...

HI Jon,I have recently bought the starter kit from Boats.net and the price is half of what you would pay in England, the downside is that you will have to pay around £55 to customs. Saying that the price is not to be sniffed at, and the kit is very good and it is the upgraded version.

Bulldog Kaput!!!!!!!!

Just done a service on the dog ready for Germany, but things did not go as planned. It would only run on one cylinder, then the other cylinder flooded with petrol. Then just as I think everything is alright there is a small explosion to the rear of the petrol tank, a cloud of smoke and the dog will ...
