check ~ wash ~ change o-seal ring .. but will still leak .. then morning or after parking after 30min onward .. the engine will tend to stall often while on idiling.. moving off after warming up and stop at traffic light then move off again will also stall.

 

carb red red water sounds like petrol leh.

 

check fuel line at carb.

Erm , i wanna ask what if carb leak some red red water . And the motor at idiling , the speed/vibration is not smooth ? as in sometimes rpm high then low , high then low..

 

i have seen red/purplish eo...

maybe that is the eo entering the carb..in that case the reed valve /or rubber thingy at the carb outlet is letting the eo to flush back...ie u may have a bit of eo in the carb...try draining the petrol from the carb (u can do this by unscrewing a screw right at the bottom of the carb..) if this solve the problem temporary and the petrol turning red again...this will confirm the eo leaking into the carb...inlet valves and reed valve may need to be decarbonise/reset or worse replacement required.

 

will appreciate if u can post the solution of this issue.:cheeky:

Never argue with an idiot. They'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience every time:dot:

most of the time ..when bike stalls at traffic junction when the engine is hot is a result of lean mix...a turn of fuel mix jet by a quarter turn should seen an improvement to the ride..

in your case if eo has actually enter your carb..your ride is definitely going to be shitty.IMHO

- Phantom must feed new EO regularly. Every month or 3000km.

- Every 3 mths do full servicing (wash carb). Optional. Some pple think carb dun touch unless got prob. For myself, when I was riding TA200 for a yr, full service every 3mths.

- Every 3mths/6000km change air filter & spark plugs.

 

every 3 months chg air filter very heavy to wallet sia!!!

Air filters are $10, change when its dirty because blowing it with a compressed air doesn't really help much. If you can't afford that you seriously shouldn't be owning a bike.

Phantom air filter only cost $10 at ah boy and can diy also so i dun think very expensive. Unlike my Vara 125 which cost $100++ for the air filter. If u can diy on ur TA200, go ahead coz more hands on time means u know much more bout ur bikes. Phantom is not a really complicated bike once u know. If really dun know, p ls ask hor....

I want to see the world and i'm pretty sure the world wants to show a little something to me.

most people will clean air ffilter by means of compress air...this method is a very bad practice.

by blowing compress air onto the filter u may have actually force the dust into it..or that u may have puncture the filter without knowing it. As the air filter is delicate damaging it is always a possibility.

as most will do it anyway...

 

i dust the filter..what i meant is that i remove air filter and shake / knock aginst a solid surface, vibarte..etc never blow compress air over it. this shaking /knocking etc will shake the dust out of the filter.

as mentioned filter changes at 20k km ie over 7 times of eo changes..so budget for it..ie it cost $1.4 per eo change.

By a rough guideline, air filters are to be changed per 6-monthly.

Those $10 at AhBoy are chiong ones - some may not fit well, some may cause constant backfiring... If you want stock one, go to a mech you trust, because it's almost impossible to see the difference.

 

Steve, how'd you lose the cushion?? hung it to dry?

I have the best signature.
