Hit reserve switched taps over and the bike did not run. Luckily there was a petrol station close by so pushed it over. Filled up and would still not start. The bike was flooded. Left it a bit and managed to get it started. Switched the taps back on and the bike runs like a bag of sh**. (Will not tick over coughingetc.). Knock the taps off and it will again run Ok until the carbs are empty. Therefore i can only assume someting is sticking in the carbs. Any ideas? What it a common carb fault that would create this problem?,The proper fix is to take the carb float bowls off and clean then ensuring that there is no stifness or notchiness on the float spindles and no dirt in the fuel inlet where the fuel cutoff seatand valve sits. A quick and dirty fix is to tap both the float bowls with a plastic or wooden screwdriver handle (or simillar) about 10times each side .... this will usually free up the floats if they are the issue .. then turn the taps on and see how it runs,,,

How do i fix a bike that keeps backfiring after having it in a shop?

black plugs is running too rich
you lack of information doesn't include relevant information like engine size, 2stroke -4stroke-points or ignition module
backfiring is the combustion of a air fuel mixture when the inlet manifold is open to the combustion chamber
if 2 stroke it can be from a lean mixture from leaking crank shaft seals, worn rings
if 4 stroke it will occur when the inlet valve is open
this can be from incorrect valve clearance opening the valve too early
the ignition can be from a loose earth wire for the points or ignition module, faulty module or loose wire in the ignition switch or kill switch
I would take it to another bike shop for a diagnosis as the first shop is missing something either from a poor evaluation of the problem or from a lack of experience by the mechanics

I have a 1987 Valkyrie. When I apply full throttle (especially on low gears), I experience a severe flat spot from around 3000 revs upwards; as if the bike is fuel starved. If I back off the throttle, it...

Hondas have used a CV vacuum slide carb in their street bikes for years, and to correct for the lag they normally utilize an accellerator pump that shoots fuel directly into the intake when you twist the throttle. It's a simple diaphragm pump, and if it got dry during storage, they will fail from dry rot. I'd replace it given the age of the bike anyway and I'd bet it cures your accelleration issue. Also check all the hoses associated with vacuum connected to the carbs for leaks and dry rot as well.

Have a gpz1100 1995 model it has a constant petrol leak seems from carbs have done the float but still leaking

Carbs need to be serviced by a professional. That's the only way. Needle and seat are not closing properly.

I have had the shop rebuild the carbs, I have changed the plugs. The rear plug will foul after a long ride 100 miles. cylinder pressure is good. any idea's were to go next?

when the shop rebuilt the carbs did they reinstall the carbs on the bike?it sounds to me like the rear cylinder is running very rich,the carbs will need to be set up with the mixtures and balance done,this is not expensive to do and is critical to the good performance of the bike,most reputable bike shops will be able to do this,hope this helps

Acceleration vibration

need to get the carbs synchronized Tom. sounds like you are still getting a rich condition in either/both one and two cylinders resulting in uneven combustion pressures. Getting your carbs sync'd should fix the vibration and the overly rich cylinders ,
