    My 4 stroke bike has set for 5 months and yesterday I turned on the gas and it poured out the tube so I hit the carb a couple of times and it stopped.

    It now starts fine but had no power?

    Maybe bad gas?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated..

    strip carb, clean. concentrating on jets.

    always drain the fuel when storing an engine for more than a few weeks! especially in the carb!

    I suggest you remove the float bowl [very easy to do] and just look inside. I think you will find a serious mess as todays gasoline is not anything to brag about. After cleaning more carburetors than I care to admit, I now put StaBil to ALL my motorbike collection's gas tanks.

    Have fun,
