Standard 350, Missing Problem. Please Help

Jai Mahesh

Total noob
Hello dear RE Family, I am really frustrated with my lovely RE missing issue as bcoz i have showed it to several mechanics and everyone failed in correcting that. Let me explain clearly what is the problem. I purchased it in Dec 2020 and she is like my GF. Till last 6 months everything was perfect. One day it was not starting i tried everything and finally called a local mechanic. He found it was bcoz carburetor and engine connection got disconnected so he fixed it and tightened with an L key. It started. But he also did his own carburetor tuning which i never suggested. But everything run smoothly. After one week problem started. So thing is My RE starts without any problem but if I run it for some time or for a long time and then i switch off it and try to start after some time then it won't start. I checked with him and he again tuned and kept high rpm still it happens. Also most days it will start with a low rpm for some seconds and then slowly catches the normal rpm. During that slow rpm time if i raise the accelerator, it will stop with an air pumping sound. Nowadays I found one more thing that whenever this happens if i raise accelerator a little bit and kick it, then it starts (kick backs also). I want my RE in the normal condition, kicking without accelerator, starting with normal RPM then smooth running. Also one additional thing, my RE stops if i pull the choke. This choke issue gets corrected after some long running. but on a fresh morning if i pull choke it will shut off. Please help. I almost showed it to more than 10 mechanics. Some said tuning issue, petrol lock issue, air lock issue, chock issue blah blah... But i really feel it is something with carburetor as bcoz that was the day it started and there is something tricky with rpm or throttle. Please help me.!


Well travelled
Welcome and sorry for your troubles. Sounds like an older bike with a carb obviously.
What year, model and engine is it?

Did you check to make sure there is no water in the fuel ?
