I suppose it could be a case of Bad Timing, but here goes, I have a Honda 2 stroke generator that starts but when running it is uneven (Hunting)
We will be in Nottinghamshire soon visiting relatives, can I get it sorted there.
Please no suggestions that include the wording, skips, rubbish, bins, etc.
This is a serious question.

Sounds like fuel starvation.

Check and clean any filters.
failing that it may be a partial blockage in the fuel line/carburetor needle valve.
also, try a new plug if the existing is quite old.

It will have some sort of governor to hold constant revs. If you can find any linkages give them an oiling and clear out dead leaves etc.

First question. Are you using fuel that has been left in the tank/can over the winter?
A 2stroke mix does not keep well and will cause poor starting and rough running as the best part of the petrol will have evaporated.

Been around the block a few timesšŸ˜‰
A tip I was given on my genny was to use an airline to blow out the air ways/needle valves.
Only took a minute and worked a treat(y)

Must be fuel starvation (y)

As above post.

Thanks to all the above replies, will give suggestions a try, and if successful I will promise not to turn up at any Funster meet with it.

They did a EX350 as well, if its not beed used for a wile the pilot & main jet can get a build up of crud from stale fuel & 2t oil.

Make sure the fuel is fresh, correct oil mix, clean plug, start and run with a 3/4 load for a while to get nice and hot and burn out crud. Dont let it tick over for long periods.
