What does my Honda cg cut out during a ride?

Hi

I'm new to this forum and new to biking.  I recently passed my cbt and thought I'd get myself (after doing my research) something reliable and troube free so, I went for a Honda cg 125 2006 (56 plate).  It had passed its MOT with no advisories and had a few new parts fitted by previous owner (not sure when last servcied though).  It was great for the first couple of weeks, no problems and then I was riding back from a friends house and it started to slow right down and had no power what so ever.  My boyfriend came and adjusted the choke and it worked fine then for the journey home.  This happened a second time but in rush hour traffic and in the far lane (it was not nice).  I managed to pull in and adjusted the choke again to about half way and it was fine.  Ive not been out on it since.

Why does this keep happening?  I havent been on it as my confidence has been slightly knocked.  I plan to ride it out when the roads are more quiet to see if it happens again.  I am also planning to get it in for a service ASAP.  Thanks in advance :smile

cut out

Welcome jkhar, your bike is in a dangerous condition as you have said (it was not nice).

Your carb needs servicing and an in line filter fitting to prevent crap entering it. Also your tank may be rusty inside.

Honda CG 125 2006

Hi Jkhar and welcome to the site :smile

Bit confused over your boyfriend adjusting your choke? what did he do?, is there plenty of fuel in it?, and have you also checked it hasn't just gone on reserve? Good Luck

KCMC :tongue:

thanks

Thanks for the reply.  I will get it looked at ASAP, hopefully not a major problem.  I do get a warning when its going to happen, as it starts to slow down so I get the chance to pull in but, dont what it happening regularly.

 

Thanks

cut out

HI Kcmc

The choke was down when it 'cut out' and moving it slightly, about a 1/4 way the engine ticked over nicely.  It might sound daft but its as if the choke had moved posistion?  Not sure if this is possible as I know nothing about these things and I just learning about it all.  It had 3/4 of fuel in it and not on reserve which I checked when it happend.

just remember

the first screw is the pilot air mixture screw and the second is the idle tickover screw .....

which has got me thinking if it was ok before and you said it hadn't been serviced it could be air filter dirty or some dirt in the carb (as previously mentioned) which is causing this to happen .... probably well worth cleaning the carb out and fitting an inline fuel filter at the same time ... about two quid from a bike shop

You mentioned that it was like the choke had moved position. Just a thought but if the little steel ball in this pic was missing, that could be a possibility.
