This is also how they act when low on oil
be sure to check and top off
Don't know if a kit is available for you Honda. I used to convert onan Rv generators all the time, took about an hour to instal the kit plus the time to run the propane line. Not too difficult
If it's been sitting for awhile, you probably have clogged carburetor jets, especially the idle jet.

How we run em.
I'd be draining the carburetor after each run. Only takes a minute.
My generator's set up with an electric fuel pump so I can drop a sucker hose into any gas can and change them on the fly. I dump the cans into the truck every so often and get fresh gas.
No noticable change in power.
No longer need any choke to start. they start everytime.
We use em on emergency cooling pumps for melt furnaces. they must run within 5 minutes of a power failure.... otherwise ugly expensive shit happens
This is ice indroduced to bath.... same thing happens if coolent is lost, which really would suck if you happen to be beside it.

Lacquer thinner works well. You'll have to pass a fine wire through the idle jet, the solvent alone won't do it.
If the tip cleaners aren't fine enough, a bristle from a fine wire brush works well.
never used vinegar always just dish soap In ultrasonic cleaner...next one I clean I will give her a try..
I've put a kit on my generator that allows me to use either gasoline, natural gas,or propane. I got it from the same place that is linked early in this thread. Aside from always having a clean carb, my thinking was that whenever a power outage hits, you are usually stuck with just the gasoline you have on hand, but the natural gas supply is almost never disrupted. My son found out about how useless a gasoline generator is during Hurricane Sandy-long,long lines to get a single can of expensive, cash-only gasoline. Now he has a tri-fuel generator like mine.
