Honda - HRS216

I have a Honda model no. HRS2162SDC. It runs great on full throttle, but anything lower, it surges. Cleaned the carb out a couple times, but it seems like the governor goes nuts at low RPMs. Any suggestions?

4d 277,


When you cleaned the carb, Did you remove the limit cap from the low speed adjuster then remove it to clean that port/passage as well ?

Also, Is the spring over the governor to carb link rod in tact hooked and not stretched out of shape ?

Thanks for your help. Are you talking about the plastic cap? When I take that screw out I just count how many rotations? Does the cap just pry off?

Thanks again.

Yes, VERY carefully pry the cap off (the end of the adjuster can be broken off if not careful) then close the adjuster (rotate clockwise) until LIGHTLY seated counting the number of turns.

Now remove it and use carb & choke spray cleaner with the little straw to shoot through the passage, Follow with compressed air if available.

Re-install the adjuster until LIGHTLY seated then open it back up the number of turns it took to close it, Test run the engine and fine tune to the smoothest idle from there.


Good Luck
