Could be. Edelbrock carbs (if its the one Im thinking of) are based off of the old Carter AFB carbs. The carb may have a set of jets and metering rods that dont match up with your motor. You should be able to buy a Strip kit for the carb consisting of numorous combinations of metering rods and jets. If your carefull you do not have to pull the carb to change jets and the metering rods are really easy to change. They are vacuum actuated and are located under a flat plate on either side of the carb by the flat surface where the air cleaner seats on the carb. You may also have a simple choke problem. What size is your motor. Did you purchase the carb to go with that motor or is this one you got second hand? If you got the carb second hand it could be the jetting or metering rods. If the starting problem is really the carb get a kit and start playing. You should be able to use the spark plugs as a factor of running rich or lean. Pull a plug and see if its black, white, light grey, or brown. If you have one of the generic shop manuals like Haynes, they have a spark plug condition chart in most of them.
Thats the best I can do in print without going into serious detail.

Hope this helps...

Hi, Paul it is possible or your carbs need to be sync for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Honda, despair not, for a mere zero $ you can download another one.

How to extend your motorcycle engine life

Ways how to extend your motorcycle life are always draining your transmission oil when you manual tells you to oil after a long period of time and use deterates. So it doesnt lubricate the parts inside as good as it used to always use the type of oil the manual says to use. Always warm your motorcycle up before changing the oil about 7 to 8 minutes should be good enough always keep your motorcycle standing straight when draining the oil so it gets all of the oil out. Spark plug- Change or clean your spark plug when your manual tells you to if cleaning clean all of the carbon deposits on the bottom of the plug if changing make sure you use the one your manual recommends failure to clean or change will result in difficulty in starting and lack of performance. Air cleaner- clean or change your air cleaner when your manual tells you to you can clean the air filter by putting it in motor oil but make sure you wring all of the oil out of the element before putting back in place a dirty element can cause early engine failure and lack of performance. Carburetor- its always good to have a clean carb but if you let gas sit to long inside your carb it can cause it to gum in your carb causing lack of performance and hard starting. If you happen to have a dirty carb it always good to take your bike into a shop to get it cleaned if you have never cleaned a carb before as you can do some costly damage if you dont know what your doing.

Should I clean my Bajaj Boxer AT Motorcycle carburetor after 5000 Km or each 2 years which ever comes first? (This is not mean for entire motorcycle servicing and I am asking about only carburetor)

if you have an inline filter in your fuel line and run good quality clean fuel,i would not clean out the carb if it doesnt need it,you will know when the carb needs cleaning out as the bike will start to perform poorly,but if there is nothing wrong and the bike is going fine leave the carb alone,in other words,dont fix what isnt broken..hope this helps

When you try to give it more gas at 50 mph, it starts to hesitate

It sounds as though your engine timing is off. Engine timing changes with engine speed. It is possible to adjust it yourself if you have the knowledge.
