when I put the 42 pilot and 155 main jets in the bike won't start, so I put the 42 pilot and a 152 main in it, still won't start, then I put the 38 pilot and 146, still won't start... What am I doing wrong? I ordered a 40 pilot and a 42 pilot from Honda, but only the 42 came in, when I asked him where the 40 was he said it was discontinued...
Ok, after continuing to play with it, I know it's not getting the gas it needs, I misted a little gas into the carb with a spray bottle, it would start for a second and die. Does this mean that I need to go a size bigger on the pilot jet?
At this point, the jetting has nothing to do with starting. You need to get fuel into the float bowl. I would check for a pinched fuel line, restricted float bowl venting or a damaged float needle. Ti should start and run with just about any combination of jets - it just won't run right unless the jetting is correct.
