    Lightbulb A quick way to clear a choking carburetor (without opening) of Suzuki Sprinter

    A month before, the carburetor of my Sprinter were started choking (due to impurities in Petrol tank). Symptoms were like bike having suffocation on acceleration. [Just to clarify the carburetor is in healthy condition and it is not badly choked but slightly).

    I consulted my mechanic and he agreed to me that carburetor was choking. I was like do we need to open the carburetor. He told me No. There is a quick way to do that.

    He just turned the fuel knob to off position and took the air pipe (the fat one just above the mixture screw) as shown below.

    A quick way to clear a choking carburetor without opening of Suzuki Sprinter -1398456


    Using the gun he pumped air with pressure, in result petrol came out of the air filter box and some amount of petrol went into the valve area in the head. Waited till the petrol stop coming out of the filter box. At this moment bike was in over state. It took 5 - 6 kicks before it started and then we turned the fuel knob to on position. That's All.

    I was in disbelieve at that moment. Later on I was happy. It did the work. Its a month now and no choking issue yet, very smooth ride.

    I again asked if there is any damage done this way, mechanic said no it is completely safe.

    i agree with Junoon same concern from my side as you yourself told
    impurities went into the valve so how is it safe the right or proper
    way would have been he should have removed the carburetor from the bike
    than he should have used air gun. Honda mechanic whom i go for tuning of bike
    he also uses air gun to clean carburetor he does not remove any jets but he uses
    air gun to clean them and carburetor and obviously he removes carb from bike

    I also agree that the ultimate solution is to open the carb and do the cleaning with the gun.

    In my case it was not that serious. It was slightly choked (as I have mentioned already), fuel tank is clean (no rust), it was impurities we are used to nowadays due to our bad quality petrol.

    And it is unfortunate that our bikes' head/cylinder have to bear all this. Head/cylinder are burning these impurities everyday. The only thing in this case this time carburetor got choked with them.

    I used a petrol filter in my sprinter. As a result the carb never got choked even after 90000+ kms, so it was never opened till the day I sold the bike.

    i can't disagree with you reply yeah there must have not been too much impurities in carburetor
    which went into valve or chamber while cleaning but still the proper way was to remove carb
    intentially throwing impurities into chamber is not good
    fuel filter as for as i know fuel filter is present in all suzuki motorcycles
    which is in between patrol pipe which is connected with carburetor

    OK dear I got your point.

    And no to Petrol filter, the model I have is 2008 which comes without the fuel filter (unlike we see in Junoon). It is an older model fuel knob which has only the small katori though it has that net (bareek jaali) in the tank. You may see below.
