Honda genny problems.

I have a Honda 2.0i genny which I have not used for a couple of years. Although it starts normally, it will not idle smoothly but instead "hunts" continually.
Have read some time ago that there is a specialist in, I believe, the Norwich area that sorts these things out but cannot find on the web. I have tried manfully to sort it myself, cleaning carb and fuel system etc, but no joy I'm afraid.
Can anyone help with the location of the Expert please?

Could it be something simple such as the spring on the governor a bit weak.Not sure about that model.Or should one go down the road of additives to clean the system.


Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

Any Honda garden equipment agent will be able to service it and check it out. I had one that started doing the same thing under load, it was annoying to listen to but two Honda dealers had a go and didn't cure it. Perhaps it is normal.

It's always been leaking float/ dirty float chamber/ dirty jets when I've had that problem. New spark plug/ new fuel?

In Brisbane, A service agent told me what the fix was. I then approached 2 service agents with a "verbal" on the fix, but the first one failed to do it correctly, and the second gave me a blank stare. I had to dial the Yamaha Head Office for him who told him what the instructions are. It was a simple spring adjustment. I've lost the spring adjustment manual but I recommend you to take it to the service agent or try to get your hands on spring adjustment manual which isn't easy to get your hands on.
