    Default (Urgent help needed) AS200 stopped mid journey

    Just started my long journey to Jharkhand and after about 150kms my bike stopped in a manner like I am out of petrol. I tried to start it and it started.

    After about 30kms it stopped again but this time it took about 15mins to start. I tried to start it many times in the 15 mins.

    After about 20 more kms it stopped again and this time it took 45 mins to start it.

    After that I started my return journey to Bangalore but about every 5kms the bike stops. And it takes some time to start.

    Few symptoms

    1. The bike stops as if you are out of petrol

    2. After the bike has stopped the time after which it starts varies. Sometimes it starts within 1 minute and sometimes it takes 15 or more minutes.

    3. When I press the engine start switch the started motor spins up but the engine doesnot start, just like there is no petrol.

    Right now I somehow made it to Chittoor and would any help.

    Please suggest what is the correct Air Fuel Ratio (AFR) and which way to rotate it.

    Did someone face this problem or do you have some advice, please post it.

    A similar thing happened to a friend on his 200NS. Turned out it was the fuel pipe bent underneath the tank releasing petrol very slowly to the carburetor. Replace and ensure that the pipe is straight without any kinks or blockages.

    Also, check for fuel quality by filling at big bunks only.

    In the morning I opened up the tank and checked for fuel pipe and cleaned the container just before fuel reaches the carb. But I didn't notice any clogs but cleaned them up anyway. After that I wanted to clean the carb and at this point I realized why Bajaj mechanics don't want to open the carb. From my knowledge and what I saw the carb can only be opened by opening the engine head then the cylinder and the carb will come out with the cylinder. Anyway I started my return journey and I initially stopped at every 10Kms after the first 20kms I did not see the problem so I gradually increased the the the distance to 30kms. Finally I reached Bangalore without any stops. During the return ride I kept my speeds at 90 to 100 and didn't face the issue again.

    Thanks for the reply, right now I need to get the carb cleaned as it hasn't been cleaned in 10000kms. So my hunt for a mechanic begins.


    There was no kinks in the fuel pipe.

    Either this or does the bike ride long enough for the fan starts ? Like does the bike stop once it's too heated,? And does it start again once the engine is cooled down? If it's that it's an electrical issue

    So where was the problem at? I was facing a similar issue on my 200 NS and the mechanic wasn't upfront about the problem was at..

    There was no kinks because before the trip I opened the bike myself to clean the air filter and when putting the tank back I paid special attention (like I always do).

    The engine overheat light never came up, also when I reached home I checked the temp and there was no overheating.

    There is a place(some kind of container) where the fuel from the fuel valve and the overflow pipe come. From there the fuel goes to the carb. I cleaned that, so something might have clogged it and may have fixed the problem. If not that the other thing that I did was to set the sparkgap on one of my sparkplug. But I don't think it was a sparkplug issue as it is virtually impossible for all 3 sparkplugs to not function simultaneously.

    Right now I am not sure what was the problem, as I didnot find any visible clog anywhere in the fuel system.

    Another major issue is the Bajaj service in all the service centers I have gone to the mechanics overhype the problem or if it is too confusing for them they just assure you that everything is fine. Eventually no proper solution to the problem.

    Anyway have you ever got your cleaned carb cleaned? Does your mechanic even clean the airfilter while servicing(cuz mine does not, any requests lead to a convincing speech that will make you feel you can ride your bike to space and come back).

    It can be a loose ignition coil wire.. I faced the same issue with my ZMR when she was brand new.. I would suggest you check on the ignition coil wire as well..

    The first thing I did was to check whether there is a spark in the spark plug and fortunately there was on 2 spark plugs. The third one I couldnot test as it didn't come out.

    Yes but even if the wire is loose there might be Spark but not enough to start the motor! Even in my ZMR case, it was similar..
