    I can't seem to keep my new engine running unless I keep pushing tickle button on carb . does anyone have an cause and fix ? my carb is turned slightly to to right for cabling reasons (stright and cable binds)

    that's prolly the problem, i bet your float is binding.

    What exactly do you mean "turned"? The float shouldn't bind because you lean the bike into turns...Have you checked your intake gasket yet? Does it always need the "tickler" or just until it's warmed up?
    Picture of carb set-up?

    it is only turned a few degrees maybe 10-15
    took it for a approx 5 mile ride and it would keep dying unless I hit the tickle spot...must be a female carb haha :D
    stock dax carb

    How long does it have to run before it needs "tickled"? A few seconds, 15-20 seconds?

    Choked, or is there a tickler on the carb too?

    if the carb itself is tilted, then float movement and/or position can surely be affected. tilted to the right will make the needle "think" the bowl is full, as far as i can determine. you might be able to bend the float/needle bracket to account for the tilt, tho.

    seems like 20-3- secs

    I have to do it pretty frequently
    seems like 20-30 secs or so definitely less than 1 min
    am going to adjust engine in mount and try to straighten out carb hope it helps :)

    thanks for the input

    I agree, you should be able to adjust the float, but it would be best to adjust the carb so it's straight, or straighter.

    I meant that the float wouldn't bind from being tipped. I can see where it would cause the float level to be altered and starve the engine in short order for fuel, especially if the throttle is opened up more than just a bit.

    and i agree with bikeguy'...it would be a good idea to offset the intake if you can't find another cabling solution.

    Duane at Dax told me to disassemble the carb and clean it
    I hate waiting for something just for it not to work
    kinda pis@#d off about that as carb is brand new so I hope thats all it is or I have to send for warranty replacement (another 2 weeks :( )

    You were saying it was originally tipped because the throttle was binding. Why was that happening? Try getting the throttle to work and then try running it with the carb on straight. Make sure ALL the carb/manifold/cylindermounts fasteners are tight. Check your intake gasket while you have everything loose.

    Does your carb have a drain plug at the bottom of the float? If so use a cut off 2 liter bottle or similar and drain the float bowl, that will clear most debris. It will also confirm that you have fuel flowing into the carb.

    While you're at it, make sure there is a steady flow of fuel coming from the tank. Could it be possible that the fuel filter is plugged?

    Gas cap vent?

    Float sticking? The tickler pushes the float down so it will fill the float bowl.

    Will it run with the choke halfway on?
