What to do if your carburettor bike refuses to start in the rain?

My ybr125 turned on successfully when I got to it in a heavy rain. It died when I left it idle to close the gate behind me. It really didn’t want to start for me after trying all the other alternative methods. Is it due to water getting into the bike? Or just too cold? What do I do to fix this issue?

usually when it rains the temperature is low and the engine won't start easily

you need a richer air-fuel mixture to start at a lower temp

old bikes have a choke which you turn on to enrich the mixture.

does yours have one ? can try it

does yours also have a kickstarter ? can try that too

or try find a shelter and try starting the engine there

once started, keep the engine rev at a higher level to prevent it from dying

hi there.. as per below.. :) 

If really have a hard time starting.. Or RPM unstable.. just go to your favourite workshop to wash carb lor. Pricing about 35-55.. Ask before washing if you are new to that workshop..
