'99 Honda 25hp hiccups at high speed

4 posts in this topic

My engine starts good, idles good, does just about everything good except that it kind of hiccups while running WOT. Doesn't slow down when WO, just hiccups several times a minute - maybe every 15-20 seconds or so. I kind of think it might be running a bit rich - loading up? Plugs have not shown anything out of the ordinary, but plan to replace soon. Fuel pump? Looking for help here.

Any advice on this issue? Are there carb settings I can go back to and adjust as needed - do not have owner's manual for this engine.

I'm not much of a mechanic but, assuming the motor is a 4 stroke, the fuel mix should be automatic.

Is the fuel bulb hard when motoring? if not maybe a fuel flow issue-fuel filter clogged?

I did a quick search online and found a couple ideas.

1. High speed jet plugged on carb? clean and resync.

2. Rev limiter if you have too high RPM?

Seloc and Clymers sell repar manuals for your model, might be a worthy purchase. Good luck,

Could be water in your gas too. How new / old is your gas?

It sounds like that or something floating around in the bowl, clogging the high speed jet from time to time.

I think marine man it write, I have a few 25 hondas and every once in a while we need to clean out a bowl. They will get a little sediment in them at times and will act just like you described.

Dump the bowl and report back.

    • You eat bass and you're going to rip on some grapefruit Shandy? Your self-righteousness knows no bounds.
    • let us know when there weren't racial tensions.
    • I was thinking the same thing, but when I don't see it listed with the features I don't want to go off my own assumption. I sent Tebben a couple emails 2 days ago and hadn't heard anything yet.  I'll give Berkon a try and see what they say.
    • There is a side bi-fold ramp that is similar to the one in the back. He had an aluminum "blank" made to fit in its place so that he could use it as a regular trailer if needed. He still has the ramp and it bolts in when you need it by removing the blank. Not the same brand, but would look similar to this with the side ramp installed...
       
    • Strange, there were racial tensions in 1992, i wonder if there's a coinsidence... Clinton model of divide and conquer.
    • Just remember, for every 1 wackjob chiro there's probably 10 surgeons that don't give a rip about you unless they're able to get surgery approved.  Meaning their advise and prescribed narcotics/injections will eventually lead you to a pay day.  We can't be so naive now folks, but let's all dive into this one case and attempt to destroy the practice while we turn a shoulder to the other, that happens WAY more often.    That number of 10-1 is pretty light by the way.
    • Just for reference, Clinton was elected in 1992 and took office in January 1993. 
    • Sorry I forgot to add, I didn't build on this one, already came built so the brakes were on already. (I built my last one however) But I did look at the Berkon frames before I bought because I was going to build again myself and pretty sure that they had the brakes already. (At least the ones I looked at in their catalog) But I feel like any brand at that size should come with the brakes already, since a 20' house is going to go over the 3k limit.
    • Thanks for the reply trav102, the Berkon frame looks pretty similar to the Tebben and it looks like they do galvanized trailers pretty regularly. Did yours come with trailer brakes?  Or is that something I'd have to add on myself if I go over 3000#?
    • Do the sides in the front come off For your ramps your do they drop down and you use your own?
