Question about 1983 Honda VT 250 F
Hi i have got a vt250fd,i do not know anything about the engines on these bikes as i usually work on 2 strokes all the time,it doesnt seem to be getting petrol through to carbs or to plugs,at the top of each carb their is a pipe coming off them but going nowhere, do these pipes join together to hook both the carbs up or are they just overflow pipes, if thats not the problem do you know what else it could be,thanks a lot chris.
You can download the service manual for nix from here. trying to picture what you are looking at, but if they are the only rubber hoses coming off the carby, then they are most probably the fuel lines. If they come off the very top of the carby, then they may be breathers. The bike has a vacuum operated petcock also, you will need to have it in prime position for the carbs to fill. Then once the engine runs, if the petcock os working correctly, then you should be able to get fuel in on position. Just cranking it over will not created enough vacuum for the carbies to fill.,hence the prime setting. Happy to answer any questions you may have about the bike, A FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to assist you. Cheers
