I'm close to finished on my '82 Nighthawk project. I just recently rebuilt the carbs including new bowl gaskets. I'm still getting leakage around a couple of the bowls enough that it is quite a problem. If the new gaskets didn't fix which I was planning on them doing, then what should I do? ,What one of my friends did is buy gasket fabric from an auto store and cut a gasket for himself. That should be a suitable replacement, as its gasoline resistant and tempereature rated to a few hundred degrees (not that carbs get that hot anyway) Alternatively, could your carbs be leakinig around the supply line? Im nont s ure how it is in hondas, but on some yams like mine, the fuel supply is through a banjo-bolt. If one of the washers is lose, you could have fuel from the carb bowls drip back out through the supply line, especially with the bike on the kickstand.,,,

I got a compression test done on my ktm 530 anna is losing 20% is that okay

Compression test is read in psi and a leak down test read in % leakage. 20% leakage is not good. with the leak down gauges in place, listen at the carb or end of the exhaust and in the oil fill hole for leaking air. That will tell you if you have a bent valve or broken ring.

Fuel leakage

Carb needle leaking, remove the metering cover of the carb and replave the rubber tipped needle, also check the height of the metering lever this is normally set level with the sides od the carb , use a straight edge across the sides of the card to check this, if the lever is too high bend the lever down.

Bogs out when i hit throttle

This is fuel starvation, clean/replace the fuel filter in the tank, check the fuel hoses for signs of cracks or fuel leakage, if this fails it may well be dirt in the carb itself, remove the carb, and clean /replace the fuel screen located under the carb pump cover

No gas goes in the little rubber primer bulb

either a passage is blocked in carb or you bulb has a hole in it,is there any sign of gas near the bulb (leakage),if not I would most likely remove carb and soak spray out and reassemble.

Engine runs erratic until you engage the blade. it is a 22hp intek model 407777

Normally when this occurs it is due to a SLIGHTLY clogged carburetor jet or nozzle.
It is also possible (but less likely) to have air leakage at the intake gasket area.

If you do not want to do a teardown/cleaning of the carb, I'd suggest a SMALL dosage of fuel system cleaner added to the fuel.

If you suspect air intake leakage, spray some carb cleaner around the intake manifold area and determine if the engine smooths out when sprayed.


Hope this helps.

1982 Goldwing GL 1100 Fuel leak

There are 3 supply tubes that run between the carbs. Each one of them has an o-ring at each end. Those can easily be a source of leakage.
There is another cause for leakage, and that is the possibility of one or more floats being set too high which allows excessive fuel into the system. A quick check for that is to open the oil fill plug to see if you can smell gas. If you do, fuel is leaking into the cylinders.
If you need any help with float setting, let me know.
Hope this helps
