I had previously read an article many years ago which was explaining why the Suzuki RE5 did not become a complete success. The engine itself, which many people think is simple in design, is actually not so. While the engines core components contain few moving parts, the design is actually really complex. This lead to an extremely high price tag. (double what ...

That is probably a air leak n the intake after the carb. Probably the gasket. Airs sucked in and the idle goes up. Then the mixture causes the engine to start to die and the idle goes down. Repeats over and over. Check gaskets, hoses, head warpage.anything that would allow air sucked in after the carb. Sputtering out the carbs. The fuels not being regulated ...

Thanks to EU4/5, most modern motorcycles offer direct OBD II functionality through generic scan tools.

First would be the floats and whether they are sticking open at all causing it to over-fuel, especially after its been idling doing nothing and not drawing a lot of fuel or cruising and not using fuel at the rate its filling the float bowls. You can check this ...

It sounds like the battery is completely dead to me (not just 1/2 dead, as you say ;-). I think your voltage drop during testing is pretty telling. Several things to look at, one of them being what Solar Mike put in the comments. If you have known good battery, try it and see if everything works. If it does, the battery is confirmed dead. You could try to ...

I beleieve the Honda Dream Neo 110 has a carburetor, and possibly has a vacuum fuel tap. If it is a vacuum fuel tap then the engine needs to be turning over before it will allow petrol through. Does the fuel tap have a "Prime" position? If so that allows fuel to flow even when the engine is not turning over
