Hi all, I have a 2008 ct 110 Honda with 30,000 kms on the clock. Overall, the issue is that it wants to die sometimes. More specifically, when it is first started, it idles just fine at what sounds like the prescribed 1,500 rpm. It also revs just fine. Once its warm it idles ok - well, then with the application of the throttle, it dies a bit before it picks back up and revs normally. Sometimes when I am stopped at the lights, I have to maintain the rpm a bit with the throttle to stop if from dying. This doesn't happen through out the ride though. The bike doesn't seem to be lacking any noticeable amount of its whopping 7.5hp either. So far I have check the battery and it has adequate charge. Its not blowing any noticeable amount of smoke, and certainly not of any particular discernible colour. Its chewing through oil slowly. On removing the spark plug, it appears to be soot covered (perhaps the residue of burnt oil?). So Far, I have given the carby a good spray with carby cleaner. and every few days I top up the oil. My mate, who is a bit more mechanically experienced, suggested that my piston rings are a bit worn, so it's burning a bit of oil which is sooting up the spark and that's where I am getting these dying issues from. Whats your opinion?
